Just want some opinions from potentially unbiased types.
As some may know I bought a tdi quattro sport to cover the daily mileage I do so as not to put it on my Gtr.
I've had so much fun tinkering with the Audi it's made me re-evaluate Gtr ownership.
I've decided to sell up the Gtr, because the new model has just been announced, I won't use it much over the summer and it is barely used now.
I can't have a 65k car not bringing me as kuc fun as the Audi does.
I'm probably going to have one car for a short while but am contemplating what to replace the Gtr with and wanted your thoughts.
This is a car for pure fun only. I'd like to do track days but just don't get the time really, so it's going to be driven just for the fun of driving.
This means it won't get much use.
For that reason, since it's purely a luxury/toy, it has to be something cheap, whose value won't bother me too much or change too much.
This means either a very old car or a cult car.
My choices are, s2 Elise with 1.8t Audi coversion which will cost me close to 25k or an e46 m3 for sub 10k.
The Elise is convertible, lightweight and awesome on track, whilst being nearly Gtr fast in a straight line. The BMW is cheap, has loads of tuning potential too but is more mainstream, and won't be modified to the point of making it harder to sell on. My concern is that as a normal everyday type car it might not be so different an experience from the a3, so again will never be used.
Thoughts? Or other suggestions?
Btw, key thing is I ave to like the way it looks.
