    Now that depends on which car!!!

    I have to admit, i don't drive mine as often as i used to but i still love it when i do and thats 4 years into owning it!

    Dying to get an S3 to play in though!

    You're right, the roads can be mayhem but i find if you chose the right route its not too bad and its fun overtaking the odd vehicle!

    I'm very selective now.
    I avoid the infantile mod'ing threadzzzzzzzzzzzzz:lazy:

    Which automatically cuts my options down by about 90%, actually.

    I'd buy one.
    But I'd fit different buttons, get the stand lowered and tint the screen.

    My reply is very easy...

    What car did you have last: Audi A3 2.0TDI-140 SE DSG
    What car have you now: Audi A3 2.0TDI-170 SE S-tronic
    What car is next? Audi A3 2.0TDI-170 SE S-tronic

    I agree with others who have said about the roads getting so crowded. Fortunately, as I'm retired I do get to drive at times when a lot of other people are at work. Also I usually get to drive on the continent for 3-4 weeks each year where the roads seem to be at lot less crowded as I still enjoy driving very much indeed.

    To me the A3 fits my bill exactly, espesially with the S-tronic and 170bhp is about as much power as I can use and gives a reasonable compromise between power and fuel economy. I just hope Audi don't ruin it when they bring out the new one in 2011.

    The R32's not a bad motor at all, lots of character and an addictive growl, but it just feels too lardy and after all is said and done it's still a Golf.

    Can't wait until I get behind the wheel of an M3.

    Previous: 8L S3 fairly well modified.

    Now: 996 C4S with a few options. (Still got my Mk3 Golf GTI 16v Anniversary and a Fabia vRS SE as a daily driver too)

    Next: No idea. The 997 (even in PDK form) isn't good enough to make me find the cash to change, and there is little else I would see as a move 'up'. I do fancy a GTR though. Or the Cayman GT/Clubsport if it ever goes ahead.
    In all honesty, I'll probably change the Fabia to something a bit more flash....maybe a Scirocco TDI?

    Or re-scratch the motorbike itch that's been there since 2001 when I sold my Fireblade.

    Drove one of these a few times.
    Brilliant, and nicer looking front end than the 997.

    Possible `next car ` for me :icon_thumright:

    I prefer them to drive..a bit more raw than the 997, but not as olde-worlde as the 993.
    They are down at silly money now...£40k gets you a late, immaculate, high spec C4S with change...and even turbos can be had as low as £35k for the earlier cars.

    Mine has been cheaper to run than my S3 too. Perfect.
