Does that mean you will be changing your username to A3

I owned an A3 and A4. The A3 was a lovely car 1.9 diesel it was a 55 plate. Owned it for about 3 years (from 6 months old) and the only thing that let it down was the Audi service costs!
The A4 was great also a diesel but a company car so no costs to worry about.

One thing I will say is this will be a good swap. I own a Mini Cooper and bloomin hell they are small cars.

lol nah if i did that id have a new user name every six months
in the past 7 years ive had
2x mini one
1x seat leon sport
1x bmw 118d se

1x bmw 118d sport
1x vw golf gtsport 1.4tsi
and currently have a mini cooper s

i buy a new car every 9ish months but with the house move that will have to change so was looking at the A3 or A1
or vw sciroco

Lol, that's a bit like me lol.

7 Mini Coopers
2 BMW 1 Series
2 BMW 3 Series

The scirocco looks lovely, I would get one of those. The 1 Series BMW are a waste of space IMO.

i dont need a new car no its only 10 months old lol
but i usually change my car between 9 and 14 months and planned to swap to a scirocco in december but figured if i swapped now for an a3 i would be a bit more practical for a few months while we are fetching stuff from ikea as my nearest is bristol so a 200 mile round trip and i wont get much stuff in the boot of my mini

What do you guys do for living, you can change cars so frequeantly. Do you partexcahnge etc what is the cost to own one for a period of 10 months considering above examples. thanks

As you're probably aware, the five door A3 is the 'Sportback' and has a bigger boot than the three door model and shaped more like mini-estate with a straight tailgate. Despite that I don't think it's much better than the Golf hatchback although definitely an improvement on the Leon's boot. The Octavia isby far the best of that VAG group for practicality but obviously doesn't have the badge

i work in a builders merchant nothing special and a lot lower pay than i used to get in the midlands ( the price you pay for having some of the best surf on your doorstep )

i have part exed all but one of my cars and i pay between 3 and 6k to change i suppose

had a golf mkv gt sport 1.4tsi the mad one that's turbo and supercharged and slighty less powerfull than the gti

also had the new shape leon 2ltr sport tdi so not looking at another of those


dont like the shape of the skoda


allways liked the look of the A3 so looking at those

dont mind a hit in power output compared to my mini as long as it's not like my sisters golf 1.6 match

would like the sport model either diesel or 1.4/1.8 tsi not sure on the sportback do they feel different ?

I didn't try the sport model only the S-line although I don't think there's much difference aside from the physical shape between the three door and the sportback.
