    Point proven then.

    You want to see how much a flipping Renault Megane looses over 4 years - not that I am seeling one to fund my A3, no, no.

    I'm really surprised the Mini isn't at the top of that list. They don't seem to lose much money at all!

    ]

    It says they only looked at the top 10 selling cars of 2009 - surprised the A3 made it on to that list although seeing more and more of them about now.

    I don't think they based it on used cars guys....which when you think about it, a 3 year old A3 does actually hold its value pretty well..providing you don't buy something like a 3.2 but a 2.0tdi or a s3 even.

    My 2.0TDI has cost me 5k in 2.5 years of ownership, assuming I trade it in.
