Its even harder to choose between the A3 and Golf Now... Both great looking cars and similar performance. So what would you go for?

I'd go S3 Sportback. I priced one up last week and I think £33000 is a lot of money for a car of that size, but it was only a grand more than the Scirocco R, so I guess it's not bad considering it has 4WD and two extra doors.

I'm waiting on the Leon Cupra-R pricing though.

Apparently, the Leon Cupra-R is £25000 with leather as standard.

Some whining on Seatcupra.net about it not being such good value compared to the Cupra. It doesn't have Xenon headlamps as standard and they don't like it. Clearly they play with themselves too much on there or something.

Focus RS I think for sheer VFM.

I think pretty much everybody would go for the S3 but if there is enough of a price gap between the two for two very similar cars. then they would go with the golf.

Looking at pics 3 and 4 I'd say the Golf has the edge for me, but if I were to see a 3 door S3 in the colour of the Sportback then I may go that way...

I think the S3 looks a little dates... I can see a facelift coming along....

The pictures you have of the S3 isn't the latest one.

S3 is overpriced and looks too soft. Golf for me.

If you spec up the Golf R to the top you're looking at £41k.....almost exactly the same as a top spec R36!

Saying that, i'd go for the Golf, saw one in red just now and it did look mightily nice

TBF, VW dealer near me will remap a GTi to 260+bhp and keep the VW warranty for not a lot anyway.

Still, if i had money to spare.

How much is a BMW 135i with M styling? I would probably go for one of those or a Porsche Cayman for that kinda dough.

Wasn't being funny Putney, I think the Blue sport back is the current model, but the silver one is the previous.

matty, Lol I was just saying sorry for posting dated pictures of the Audi. Wasn't attacking you! I like the way everyone tips toes round each other.

Some interesting points raised. it's incredible that you can spec a golf to £41k! I agree a BMW is actually better value for money. I like the 1 series m sport and the 3 series convertible with the 335 twin turbo engine. I actually prefer rear wheel drive cars anyway. So would probably get into a BMW. I think the golf is the better looking car out of the two There is a Golf r on autotrader now with 2000 miles on it for £34k WTF! That's second hand 911 money! Hatch backs have increased in price by so much!

Looks wise I think I would choose the Golf on a 3 door 'vs' 3 door or a 5 door 'vs' 5 door basis. Fasvourite of the four options is the Golf 3 door.

I would need to become mental before I paid £40,000 for a Golf though...in fact I would need to become mental before I paid £30,000 for a Golf either!
