Bored of my A3 Sportback!!!

Simmo_Sportback_S_Line Feb 21, 2013

  1. Not even had it a year and already am bored and looking for something else!! Had been thinking this for a while and the thoughts were compounded when I got an A5 Cabriolet as a courtesy car!

    Is it just a phase?!!

    No I don't think you are going through a phase, some people are never satisfied with what they have. If you change your car then I guess somewhere down the line you'll be bored with that one too. I know several people like this and just waste money by constantly changing their car.
  3. Reload

    Reload Bird is the Word!

    My ex wife was like that with cars, don't get me wrong, I'm a massive car nut but it was costing me a bloody fortune!

    Had the S3 coming up for three years now and still love it, all you have to do is find the right car
  4. Your probably along the right lines there, this is the 10th car I have owned in 10 years of driving, suppose I should hold out a wee bit longer!

    A car a year :wtf: I keep mine at least 5 years. Except the last one, Toyota Auris T180 lasted 3 months with me, even the wife hated driving it.
  6. The longest I have owned a car was my 25th Anniversary Edition Golf Gti PD which I had for 3 years, loved that car, to be fair I do love the A3, just need to do a few bits and bobs to it and get involved more!

    One thing I really want is phone prep etc with a MFSW, the A5 I have has all them toys and I want them too :o.k:

    I need two cup holders too, drives the wife mad!

    I'm the same with my cars, I got bored easily. I just do a little bit of modding here and there and that seems to claw back my interest ..I think its something to do with making the car more unique and more personal. I've had 3 cars in my 6 years of driving and had a Mk1 TT for about 4 years. I've had the A3 just a bit over a year now and I feel I need to mod it to keep me interested...it is a diesel after all:laugh:

    I find I get bored of my cars too but I keep the candle burning by modifying them. Not cheap answer But keeps me happy:superman:
  10. Thought I was bad haha!!

    Right have decided I'm going to freshen the car up a little with a few mods, what i have planned;

    Flat bottom MFSW (£400)
    RNSE & Bluetooth (£600)
    US Centre Console Mod (£170)
    LED Interior Lights (????)
    Chrome Mirrors with Integrated Indicator (£250?)
    New style LED Rear Lights (£200)
    RS4 Style Titanium Alloys (£500 after selling my alloys)

    I estimate the cost to be around £2k if I shop wisely and fit myself then just pay for the coding to be done. Cost doesn't look to bad when I consider the A5 I was lusting after was a £32,000 car, no way can I afford that so this is the way I'm going.

    I don't have to worry about any major servicing on mine for another 40,000 miles, it's a low mileage 170 TDi so will last me, if I sold now I would more than likely be hit financially quite hard!

    What do we think?

    Bored? Wow, had my car 5 years next week! Loved every mile.
  14. Wrong choice of words I think N8, just fell for the A5 as it was something new, I'm going to actually get off my **** and do the bits I set out to do in the first place.

    Wee bit at a time!
