I actually prefer the 156 in looks to the GT and the 147, though all are nice. 147 is too small for me. I did seriously consider a GT a few months back before Rosie was pregnant, but the GTA is presumably a harder-edged sports car (not driven a GT) and thus more "me"!!
GT GTA - would have been very tempting. Before the news... if it existed.
Actually in getting the 156 GTA SW the main competitors were:
1) VX220 as a trackday car, keep the passat (which is A1). Decided with a baby on the way track time will be limited!
2) S4 avant (new V8 type, one of the earliest) too expensive, would have to save pennies.
3) Wait and save pennies then get 159 4WD V6. Decided I wanted the 156 more on looks, and under-bonnet looks, and that a sporting estate version of the new car might be some time off!
