Yeah, I'm looking at getting either a Mk5 GTI or an Audi A4. I don't think I really save that much money having my diesel over when I had my MK4 GTI. Plus, I keep getting in _monkey's (from uk-mkivs) Bora 1.8T, and I just miss that purrrrr of the petrol. I also find that because diesel's take so long to warm up, I'm almost at my other half's house by the time it's warm, which probably isn't too good for the engine.
I do quite like the front of the A3, but the back end just doesn't do anything for me lol
