    Sold my A3 this weekend, its gone to a very good home, the new owner is a member on here who did have an A3 2.0TSFI but sold it. It went to Alex with all the mods on it, KW's, FBMFSW etc.

    The A3 had to make way for this

    This is our 2nd R32, we sold the first one to buy our S2000 and the missus has always wanted another one but in a 5 door so i gave up and sold the A3.

    I am sad in some ways as the A3 was a lovely car but vert happy that its gone to a very good home so it will be looked after.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    We prefer the 3 door but the missus wanted 5 doors hence why the A3 was sold.

    I love the Mk4 R32's I was obsessed with buying one when I had my Mk4 GTTDI, loving the colour too!
    But for me I couldn't buy a hatch in 5 door, it does look nice though.

    I used to feel the same but a baby changed all that. 5 door hatch is still more acceptable than a saloon.

    That colour was the best one for the Mk4 R32. I had a blue Mk4 4motion.

    Yeah I can see how a 5 door would be required with a child
    I wouldn't mind an estate though haha, a beastly RS4 avant in RS blue!!!

    I don't particularly like the styles of most in 5 door, there are a few I would consider like the Leon or Golf, but even A3's I like the way 3 doors look more than the SB.

    It's just my view though, I do like how some SB's have been modded though it makes me appreciate them but I wouldn't buy one over a 3 door.

    Thats fair enough, I bought a SB because I have a dog, and did alot of travelling etc, now although I don't travel as much now, I'm so glad I bought the SB over the 3 door, much better rear end and LED lights FTW

    And...the power the torque the flexibility and the smoothness and the finesse...
    For all its faults the V6 is probably the nicest engine ever to grace the Golf/A3 chassis. We will never see this sort of engine in a small hatchback again so enjoy while you can and prepare for a life time of screaming 1.2 supercharged turbo Diesel electrics :)

    It is a step back however we don't like the look of the mk5 and the mk4 is alot more special.

    Nice motor - looks like you've picked up a nice one (going by the pictures).

    Funnily in the Mark IV Golf I prefer the 5 door - but A3 I prefer the 3 door.

    Shame it has such a drink problem - but always sounds and looks fantastic.

    Enjoy.

    Lovely .:R Robin, the milteks do sound impressive on them :thumbsup:

    Any other plans? Bora vents? Did it come with the VW cd changer? I think i may have one lying around if you're interested?

    Some mk5 interiors are nicer than the mk4's - actually only the buckets tbh. What were VW thinking when they designed the cloth or leather seats on the mk5 GTi's :( The layout of the cabin is horrible too..

    mk1, 2 and 4's ftw :yum:

    The 3 door A3 looks seriously dated from the back, even on the MY11s. SB rear is in keeping with the rest of the current Audi range in styling terms and light shape. It may even be that this had something to do with Audis decision to base the RS3 on the sportback as it's something the motoring press always pick up on.

    The Golf always looks best in a 3 door imo, but that looks absolutely mint Robin(especially those door shuts). If I could turn the clock back 6 months I think I'd go for an SB/5 door. I miss the extra doors my Leon had tbh.

    Good luck with it!
