    A4, ST tdci, accord cdti

    320d is out, E46 is in budget but I think looks dated now (excluding the M3).

    So an A4 is a consideration, however also considering the other two.

    Leaning towards the Accord.

    Thoughts?

    They may be well built, but they're still less cool than taking your nan out on the piss.

    Saab's are more cool then you think! Especially with a b204 lump in

    Edit: I see that says Skoda

    My mums partner had a Saab 9-3 Convertible with a Hersch upgrade kit. Was bigger brakes, a remap and a few badges I think. About 240bhp, was awesome.
    He's just traded it in for the exact same car but diesel still with the Hersch kit though.

    Saab definitely would be a good call! Dads got a 04 9-3 1.9 tid which has been mapped to around 180bhp with 380nm of torque and its lovely and quick, so comfortable! And it loves long journeys, so smooth and revs nice and low at 80 in 6th. Getting cheap now as well!
