Oooooops - regarding the other topic and my humorous (!) reply [:eek:)].

If I'd read on a little bit before trying to be clever I would not have had to give myself another black eye [B)][B)][B)]

My 2 previous GTis were 5 door but the current is 3 door and I prefer it. Surely its similar to 1.8t Vs TDi arguements, it just depends on what your needs are? Not wanting to contradict :) I can't see how a 5 door could look more sporty than a 3 door (the 3 door having a smoother body shape IMO)

5 for me. Prefer the look, and the convenience

Don't prefer prices of mods being bumped up though [}:)] (tints, trim, etc)

I totaly agree, you dont see a 5 door 911 do you (Yes they did make a couple or prototypes before any smart alec puts a pic up[B)])

I think the rear arch buldge on a 3dr looks so much more agressive than the 5dr, even though its the same, less clutter such as door handles to spoil the lines.

3DR just look so much smoother, although if I had kids I would have a 5dr, but I dont so thats another reason why 3dr's rule.[:D]

No sagging doors for me! Best looking 5 door hatch going, i'd say!

i agree, along with the leon

focus, a3, astra 5drs doesn't look good at all..

5 doors all the way! With the hatch at the back, you've got a versatile car that goes like a rocket.

Also, I don't know how reliable front seats are on a 3 door - if you always let people into the back, does the back part need winding up all the time?
