    That's a matter of opinion :eyebrows:

    I'm really looking forward to the uniform orange glow, simple controls, and perfect driving position of my next car :happy:

    It's the smallest and ugliest of the range, but I don't care, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'd like to thank the bavarians for putting everything where I like it, and for still only driving the correct wheels :whistle2:

    :o.k:

    I'd drive that even if it had wooden seats and a dashboard made of poo. It's all about the drive, not what the bloody indicator stalks look like :think:

    Honestly, the inside of my A3 looks very nice, but after a year, I'm still not totally comfortable. Next!

    :lmfao:

    It's had a few years to grow on me. I reckon 98% of people here would be like 'what the f**k did you want that for, it looks like a shoe, the dashboard is s**t, it's 0.6 seconds slower to 60 than the A3, etc' but, it's my money. And I'm not comfortable in my car, so :beee:

    And I've gone off VAG again. Happens every few years. :Flush:

    The 1 series is the car I wish a liked the styling of.
    Before the 135i I was always drawn by the prospect of hooning about in a 130i,.... then repelled by its looks:blink:. Shame.

    I guess the VAG stable can be a bit samey after a while, the 1`er should give you some thrills for a while, at least untill your ready for another spell of ruthlessly efficient, surefooted, germanic, fancy dash ownership again.

    Anyway, if a shoe was comfy enough for an Old woman and shitloads of kids then its Ok for HotBox:icon_thumright:

    cheers

    :lmfao: On form!

    It'll be ok for me. When I get bored of it I'll have the fun of looking for something else, again :yes:

    Stunning car, stunning scenery you lucky bugger. :)

    Im not a big fan of beemers but that is a nice motor, the red makes a nice change, normally see them either blue, black or that bloody horrible lime green.

    Just cos you've sold your soul doesnt mean you have to leave AS.net...

    Searching for a new car is great.
    Even though you know for a fact you going to get humped by the dealer.

    Look me up mate when your sick of the shoe, I might have a lovely S3 for you:icon_thumright:

    cheers

    It shocks me how somebody can move from a V8 S4 to a diesel A3 as they found the S4 lackluster. My old diesel Golf was a practical car, but to me was the very definition of lackluster.

    mate, luv the bmw. I had a E46 M3 for a couple of years, was an epic car..........and epic running costs. Drove around paranoid hoping it wouldn't break, but that aside they are something else. But have to say my S3 interior beats it hands down, however given the choice I know what I'd have. Just cant beat that v8 noise and power. enjoy pal.
