    I've said it before in another thread, but if I was to look for an "alternative replacement" for my S3, bearing in mind I am more likely to have the love child of Voorhees, it would have to be something that grabs me like the S3, something that stirs bits in me, something that makes me look forward to coming home at the weekend (other than Mrs S3fan.....of course).

    The only car that I reckon could do that is the Alfa 147 GTA....preferably an Autodelta version.

    Not a perfect ride, but something to get the heart beating.

    I thank you.

    it's got a bit heated in here!

    back to the topic... i wasn't a fan of the 1 series (waaaay too common and ugly), but went to the dealer and saw the coupe version (not the 3 door) and that's got the exclusivity factor and i could live with the looks. It's along the lines of the alfa gt which is something i'd go for, but they don't do the 3.2 anymore.

    147 gta would be lovely, but they stopped selling those a long time ago

    123d coupe for test drive later in the week... if i don't like it, i'll might try the 135i or go for the sports car (s2000) route

    or stick to the S3!! :)
