    Just curious about what age group would most likely drive the new S3.
    What type of person would drive an S3?.....

    Wow, must be an entirely different culture in the UK/Europe. I don't know anyone in Australia who turns over cars as quickly as you guys. When I buy a car I want it to last a good 10+ years! What happens to all the cars you get rid of?

    Don't think it has anything to do with culture. It's just a way too expensive hobby of mine. When I get married and have children (very soon) it will be over and I hope it can start with my S3 soon... ;)

    One of ours has. She's worth at least 10x what we paid for her in 1981!!

    As for age... catching up my IQ fast!

    I insure my S3 and my wife's X5 for £500/yr. Pretty reasonable I think.

    32 when my 8V S3 was delivered, now 33.

    Would've loved to have been running around in one of these when I was 22-24! But don't think I was mature enough - reward points were a bit of an ongoing issue!

    My second car was a Mk5 GTI and that was already well over £1k to insure at the time. This is my fourth car and insurance is now down to less than £200 so becomes irrelevant in comparison to cost of car.

    Insurance isn't to bad in Australia for young drivers. If you get your licence before / at 18 by the time you are in your early 20's the premiums are fairly low as-long as your traffic history and at-fault claim history is OK. I was paying a higher premium for my Holden / Chevy Cruze back at 19 years old than i'm paying for my s3 now.

    I have to admit the no wife and no kids must help. However I do have a mortgage! I paid as much as I could for my car in cash to keep my finance repayments as low as possible. I'm paying just under $1,000 AUD per month.

    Old enough to remember when the first Golf GTI was released.
