Having a really tough time deciding what car to get: Polo GTi, Audi A1(1.6 TDi), Mini Clubman(diesel), Suzuki Swift Sport (GTi), Abarth Punto Supersport, Alfa Mito TDi. Not a huge fan of VW product, a bit too vanilla for my tastes. A1 is a decent ride but a bit bland as well. Mini, best driving experience, even in diesel form but so ubiquitous and really meager spec for the money. Swift gets the best spec of all and is a cracking drive but maybe not as much panache as the other marques. Will test the Punto and Mito and see how they compare. But sitting in the Punto, its clear the driving position suits me much better (can't get the steering wheel close enough or low enough in the Mito).

Decisions, decisions.
I'm pretty sure at least half of the intent of your post was to breed jealousy over here... I wish these could even be decisions over here in the States. First world problems...
