Guess it all depends on what you want. The AV will no doubt be one hell of a car. But getting the current AU3 will no doubt save $$$ and i guess argueably the most sorted EA169 (AU onwards) base chassis out.
As well as that, the AUIII will have the last running of the winsdor 5.0 engine so that could be another good point on a nostalgic aspect.
