    Its what's known as a simile, something your average 8L owner obviously fails to grasp.

    I will give you a few minutes to google simile for a reply :lmfao:

    I was just talking about the differences between our edits, mine doesn't miss out any key info, yours does. But it doesn't matter, it's only ASN..

    Yours does though, firstly the gap between the posts, the carefully highlighted texts and the removal of parts which make them look like they are said in one sentence.

    No thanks. I honestly can't be bothered to read this pathetic argument amongst the 8L and 8P owners. If you seriously think your Vauxhall Nova is as good as a 61 Plate Audi S3... I pity you.

    Get a grip.

    How can they?? You the majority of 8p owners pay monthly so probably didn't have a pile of cash to buy a motor in the first place. :moa:

    Well that's fair enough, I have never had a car on finance, and dont have any plans of. I would rather pay cars off in full, so that when I drive it off, it's mine.

    But to be fair, I could buy an 8L S3 for the price of a years worth of insurance! haha

    Or more likely, you can't read..

    Last time I checked, I didn't own, nor have I ever owned, a Nova..

    And this from a man with a 1.4... I think they actually did a Nova with a bigger engine..

    I agree, my deposit was more than a decent 8L S3. i have owned all my cars before this. But buying a property at 23 means i didnt have many years to build up as much money as i would like, so sold the car and financed this with money i had left.

    Because the finance will need a deposit - probably more than the 8L S3 is worth.

    Anyway, if they can afford to pay off an 8P S3, Im sure they can take out a car loan for roughly £2k-£3k, and buy an 8L S3...

    Why is it that some people with newer cars think they are better than older ones without any real reason.

    im not aiming this at anyone but i see this all the time when i tell people the age of my car, its probably better ewuiped than theres anyway, 8L's can be just as reliable if well maintained.

    To the OP: Just choose what you like not what everyone else likes, at the end of the day you drive it and live with it, dont saddle yourself with debt to please others, if you dont want the debt just buy a cheaper car like the 8L

    Nope, just a standard response to someone saying I own a Nova..:lmfao: Hmm Nova or 8L, nova or 8L, I think I made the wrong choice (this is a sarcastic comment, and should not be wrongfully edited to put into a signature)

    Now your sig isn't funny as its two separate posts, although still cleverly edited, so no idea why you kept it?

    It's not cleverly edited, i've just chosen not to include the bit where you call 8L owners chavs, as it's not relevant to your 8P racing comments

    Yes it does. I dont see your point? Ive said that I could afford your car and for that matter a new S3 (but try getting insured at my age), mines genuinely better, or it wouldnt be worth more would it?

    Come back when you can afford a proper S3 and I will take your comments seriously.
