Cheers for the reply red. Yeah i have a test drive booked so will see how it goes.Sometimes you have to be practical,when life changes
I remember my partner saying to me 32 years ago that i would have to sell my RS 1600i when my 1st child was on the way.
I would never have a 3 door car with children, so 2 weeks before my son was born I bought a 2.8i Xr4 x4. It had 4 doors and the boot could easily accommodate the silvercross pram & a V6 with about 150 bhp big power back in the day lol
I had that until my lad was 3 then bought the Mrs an escort 1.6 ghia and I bought a 3 door cosworth.
My advice test drive the M3 ,as they have been one of the best cars that you can drive for the last couple of decades and yes they do have a great road presence. Yes you may not have the comfort of 4 wheel drive but your not driving this around a track,your using it as a daily driver and for that it should be fine.
Also if you really are enjoying how your S5 drives there is nothing stopping you from getting a S5 sportback.
