Looks nice is this the replacement for the M3?

Hows it drive?

No, its the replacement for the A4 Avant. I'm not replacing the M3 with anything until maybe spring.

Well, it drives a bit like an oversized slow R32 as its got the same engine[:D] but it obviously doesn't thrill like a quick car because it isn't. What it does do well is get me to work everyday on the crap lanes that I drive on through the little villages, because the ride is pretty soft as you could imagine but because its the sport model it rides on larger wheels than std although still not massive at 18" and it has a paddle change std on the sport which does help when going up some hills and you want an instant change rather than using the kickdown that seems to take for ever to change down.

So far I'm pretty pleased with it as I didn't expect a fast car just a well equiped comfortable one.[^]

so is that the "V10 DI" then [;)]

No, its the 3.2 sport auto. I wanted a fairly cheap comfortable large car for the winter. The V10 is more of a serious purchase and one that I wouldn't buy as IMO the Porsche would be a better residual bet.

Looking good ME.

Now have you placed your order for the GOLF GTI ???

Cos you know as soon as you see it on Top Gear you will be wanting one.

Well I've just ordered a couple of Clio's so I might wait to see if they bring an R32 or R36 out[;)]
