    I was never much into cars as I am motorcycle rider but possible getting addicted. I have always owned some crappy old cars to get me from A to B and never planned on buying anything expensive.

    Accidently bought Audi a3 with 3.2 petrol engine and dsg gearbox on insurance auction. The car is from 2004 and paid for it 3k. Still not expensive. I do have few things to fix (missing fuel pump) but overall car is not bad. Has a dent on the hood but nothing major. At least I wont be worried my girlfriend scratches a bumper which is scratched already.

    The main reason of big engine was to tow a trailer with my track bike. My old volvo 1.8 is struggling sometimes:)

    You should have gone for a diesel if you're planning to tow with it, the 3.2 isn't too ecconomical on it's own let alone trailering !

    economy is not the issue for me. I tow about once a month. I wouldn't go for a diesel, had 1 in my life and had bad experience with it and decided diesel is not the way for me. TDI are good cars but personally I dont like them.

    Volvo 1.8 was doing 20 mpg with my bike and all gear....
