    I'm on PCP at the mo with mine which finishes end of next year. Undecided whether to keep it or not - might just hand it back and walk away. Having said that though the better half might purchase it as a replacement for her Beetle which is becoming a tad on the small side as the kids are getting bigger.

    I fancy getting something cheaper but with decent enough performance - my brother has just picked up an 07 plate Octavia vRS (diesel) with peanuts mileage on it for 10k. Great car to drive and is bigger than the A3 which is what I'm looking for. So might look in this direction end of next year.

    But then again I might win the lottery....:eyebrows:

    1 series

    123D M Sport in either 3dr or coupe form.

    3 Series

    330D or 335D M Sport Saloon, would rather have a coupe but the equivalent coupe seems to cost at least 2k more. Plus I like the practicality.

    A3/S3

    Would love an S3 in sprint blue! But running costs would probably be a problem for me.

    Otherwise would be a TDi 170 Quattro S-Line. However, there doesn't seem to be an S-Tronic available for a Quattro 170.

    Its difficult to say until you test drive these things. I just tested a CLK and a 3 series coupe and to be perfectly honest my A3 is just as good...better in a lot of respects. I think for me it will be a Porche Carrera 4 but then i am an "old git" who only pays £220 fully comp on a 3.2 :yes: so I don't have to wait till i am 21......again !!!

    I've only just got my A3 so not really thought about it much. However, I guess I'll buy another car in a couple of years so...

    I've always wanted an Atom - so maybe a 160, or a Lotus 2-11
    or if I decide to be a bit more practical and replace the A3...
    BMW X6 / Nissan GTR (depending on residules)

    Probably change in about 2-2.5 years time but if it was right now it would be a toss up between an S3 sportback with all the gadgets or an S4 avant.:hubbahubba:

    This time next year once my wedding is over & moved house the first thing I'm doing is getting back into a Lotus. Got permission to get myself an Exige S 240:arco:

    Nothing compares to the raw driving feeling of a Lotus. An S3 feels like a shed in comparison.

    id like to keep myself in an audi, probably end up getting an s3, and chip it, i want something understated which can beat the pants off everyone, like bigandys! if not that then id look at the a5 or s5 but i think a v8 is a bit to pricey for me at the moment!

    Lol @ benskin .. Ive hardly driven that A3 .. Swaped it with my gf and to be honest that 1 series is much better than an A3 lol .. and when you fire it up lol it sounds just like m3 WROOOM WROOOM .. I dont hate A3 just the audi dealership they have put me off .. Thats what my Beemer looks like the only difference is i got xenon, red leather seats & sat nav

    Having come from a Boxster back to a hatchback, I think at the age of 30 I'm becoming sensible and would like a BMW 335d.

    Am really tempted to get a cheap car and strip it out for track use......

    Given that it seems I've got used to the power of my new A3 already, I'll probably be upping to an S3 or S4 depending on how soon I change up.

    got no intention of flogging the a3, yet, but the new Rocco tickles my balls big time.

    Although I love my A3, I have to agree - my exige was amazing. I had to change as a baby is on the way, but I'm really glad I owned one. Still, it's nice to still be fast even if it is just in a straight line ;)

    Providing Audi don't ruin thinks with the next A3, I would think mine will be another A3. Having already owned 24 different cars over the years and test driven many more, I have no great desire for anything different. The A3 ticks all the right boxes for me.

    also thinking about going for an as 3.2 v6, if the new model has that engine in it. really love the sound on v6 engines.

    like the 4 motion and the r32...they sound unreal!

    I would definately consider a TTS or S5 if I get used to this whole petrol lark!

    If not, a 3.0tdi A5 would be nice!

    For a daily driver? Probably an S3, (or RS3 if they ever make one), or maybe a 3 series (not buying a 1 series, too ugly). I'd be tempted by an S5 also.

    For something silly, I quite fancy a TVR. Something with a honking great V8 to drive at weekends. :D

    I've just got an A3 Sportback after 10 years of hot hatches and coupes, owing to my first baby being on the way.

    If we continue to live in town, I can see another A3 being a good move in 3-4 years time. They're a very good package.
