Ok, hereâs the story. Iâm kind of forced by the prospective arrival of my first sproglet to give up my beloved Audi S3 for something a bit more practical. Either that or resort to using the mummy-to-beâs Megan as our âmainâ car! Iâve got a budget of up to Â£15k, which will include trading in my S3. What Iâll be looking for is a diesel or LPG 4x4 or estate. Ideally Iâd like a LR Discovery with 40 MPG, but that isnât going to happen. But I am happy to trade off a bit of MPG for âChelsea Tractorâ height and ability. So far, the best Chelsea Tractor I can find that Iâd be happy to park up outside my gaff MPG-wise is a BMW X3 2.0D, which gets 40ish to the gallon As far as an estate is concerned, itâs again a BMW, this time a 320 D Touring or an Audi A4 Avant Quattro 2.0 D which gives less MPG than the Beemer. But the Audi does have 4-wheel drive rather than the Beemer rear-wheel drive and of course, people wonât hate me as much in an Audi as compared to the Beemer! Iâd be ok with a SAAB 93 1.9 D estate, itâs got good MPG, front wheel drive and solid. Anyway, rather than trawl through Autotrader, Parkerâs Guide and tyre kick at the local Swiss Tonyâs, Iâd thought Iâd ask you lot for suggestions as to what else to have a look at. And if anyone wants to pay 4 grand over the odds for an S3 thatâs been dealer serviced, driven like it was nicked and with excess mileage and a touch of rust, well, Iâm your man!
