just a self interest question...is either one better...5 door is more practical if you are taking extra people all the time but is there any compelling reason to pick either other than personal preference? I have 3 door and getting my whippet into the back seat can be a little strained at times but thats about the only draw back at the moment...(I dont have kids so no probs there)

The only thing for me (I have a 3-Door) is that you need a bit of extra room on the sides of the car to open the doors. The doors are a bit longer, so to give me enough room to get out, the very end of the door ends up being quite a way out. I have had some VERY tight squeezes.
Other than that I like it. I think it looks better (gives the rear side windows a better and more angled look) but as always, that is my personal and biased opinion. 5 dorr definitely has practicality all over it, but hey, I always drive it!
I am with Tim on this one! 5 Door all the way...But i think that i am abit bias anyhow
