I'll buy the A3. I've actually been looking at them pretty hard. I am so mixed about a new car. I may but a car (hatch/wagon) and pick up a cheapo pickup truck. I need good gas mileage and no sense having 2 big cars in the family.And my quick observation of the day: I need to get rid of the A3 and pick up an STi Limited for daily driving...so much fun driving that car.
