but surely i cant be the only person in the world who would love a tiny city car hatchback with awd and 300+ hp (oh and with 3 pedals)

i own exactly that, albeit the 5 door version. i think the 3 door is the same wheelbase anyway.

only thing i don't like about it is that with fairly firm suspension and a shortish wheelbase, it crashes about over manhole covers etc...

Took the S3 out not long ago felt like you're sitting on the back of a rabbit
They're fast but small and felt tinny

Golf R 3door = australia NO
S3 3door = australia NO

I bought a Fest ST a couple weeks ago in black, 3 Door and manual, great fun
I ordered a Renault Megane RS275 R this week in black also, January delivery, 1 of 3  black cars in the aus 50 car build.

I'm happy with those two.

they did with previous models, but with both options on the table, most went for the 5 door. Australians just don't want them.
this is still a big sedan country.
everyone complains when we can't get something, but the reality is, no one wants them, otherwise demand would change supply.

even when they make 3 door/5 door versions, the wheelbase is usually the same, so no big difference other than practicality and looks.
