The 3 or the 5? I think for the 5 it's a market that doesn't really exist in the UK. Apart from me of course.
I read somewhere about there being a certain snobbery re: 'executive' hatchbacks in Germany. Hence the slightly bizarre and totally over-engineered split tailgate on the 5GT. Don't know how true that is though. Maybe it's the same thinking behind the 3GT?
