After about 7 years of ownership finally decided I need to start thinking about replacing the Honda
It's been an epic CTS I-Shift. Purchased with 19K on the clock and now 110K
Only once did it fail on me - transmission warning at traffic lights. Engine off then back on and never happened since.

I'd have a Type R but unfortunately not auto [smilie=sad.gif]
Been looking at various other makes (hot/hyper hatch backs) and considering an AMG A45.
Looking on their forum now, lots to research before committing.

I must say, I don't have an especially high opinion of the A45. Most reviews (And drag races, If you watch Carwow) seem to slate it due to a dire auto box - Exactly what you wouldn't want!


If I was after an automatic Hot hatch, I'd be looking at Golf Rs / Audi S3s - Their DSG Just seems to do better. (The Cupra would probably do similarly well!) - The only problem that arises from these is risk of theft; Especially reading around on pistonheads they're often targeted specifically, so worth considering depending on your area.

If you can cope with RWD then the outgoing M140i. They remap to circa 400bhp.

Even the lesser models still have decent performance and have the great ZF 8 speed box.
