    A sportback 8P S3 would be the logical answer but they would be approaching three figures mileage wise,what about a Golf ?

    I've never seen one advertised and don't know the value, but I regularly see a Passat R34 which looks very nice!

    The R36 is nice but for that finish on the dash I would have maybe had one.

    I got an A4 avant for the baby seat/buggy stuff. It's just about enough. I'm not sure how much gear you have, but I always seem to be needing more spaces. I looked at an A3 SB but just wasn't big enough for me.

    Thanks for all info guys,just had a look at an Audi q7, really nice drive,nice quality inside but don't quite know, love the drive of the 07 plate bmw x5, think in going to try and test drive the Porsche cayenne and the vw Toerag, like the look of the range rover sport but hate the inside

    The island is a lovely place in the summer Audi dynamic but shocking in the winter lol

    I would be look at an Audi A8, plenty of room, massive boot, and normally lots of equipment.
