Ok, as you may not know, i haven't had a car now for a year this month when i sold the R32. At present have been waiting for the new S3 to be released, but in the mean time i have thought about getting a newish car to be the family runabout and dogs body, inwhich Mrs.TDI can use for work and putting the S3 on the back burner for a couple of years. So am looking, probably for a quick diesel within the VW or Audi family, main views are of a Mk5 golf GT TDI 2.00 (140) 5-door. Picking up a nearly new one for around £14-15K. My eyes are also taken by the new GTI too, but this seems a little OTT for the runabout. But after 2 test drives, i have defo fallen for this. There is also the new Golf GTD 170 being released later this year, but i think this price would push it to the early 20's. Would rather go for a newer shape car, to an older model, ie A3 sportback, but has only been out for a year so residuals are still very good. BTW, our family car has been a clio dynamique 1.2 16V (no A/C) for the last year, which we will be giving back to renault. And i f'ing hate! Any other ideas people. Must be 5-door and prefebably TDI as will save me money for her work run everyday, and unmodded.
