    I think I\'ve got an illness....

    I just keep changing my mind on what I'm getting next. I've gone from

    2nd hand RS6 saloon
    2nd hand S4 saloon
    spanking A4 3.0 tdi sline saloon
    spanking A4 3.0tdi cab
    spanking A4 2.0t cab
    2nd hand RS6 saloon

    I'm back where I started!!! and if you have a look <font color="red">here </font>you'll understand why!!! Yummy.

    Can I justify the running costs though?
    I really wish I didn't give a toss about cars. I'd love to be able to go out, by a 2nd hand focus and not care...but I can't.

    Anyone else got a similar illness?

    Hearing that one. I have far too many expensive interests, and cars is one I could do without.

    I tried going from a corrado vr to a 1.8SE A4... that didnt work for me.

    out of interest, why isn't an RS4 on your list above?

    coz that would be another 10k. The above are achievable (RS6 only just though) RS4 would involve a divorce & new mortgage.

    .....hmmmmmmm

    Re: I think I\'ve got an illness....

    I'd wait 12 months for an RS4. There's going to be some absolute bargain RS4's this time next year.

    I have to say I'm not to fussed about RS6's. Yes their blindingly fast, but the A4 is the largest shape I'd go. The A6 is just too large to be easily parked anywhere, or driven comfortably down narrow two way roads.

    Couple of nice 2001 RS4's on autotrader Eeef.
    Both only sitting at 30000 miles and both for 29k.
    One's an avant like,but still nice.

    I'm no Audi expert.
    If it doesn't say Avant,or there isn't a picture,I assume it's a saloon first.

    Here's a link to one of them (the lower mileage one).

    Isn't this garage being featured on Fifth Gear this week ???

    EDIT;Just noticed it says SOLD if you scroll down the ad.

    Man, I think I share your illness. House is selling in a few weeks so I'll be using some of the proceeds to pay off the car loan giving me more spare cash a month. I know what will happen though. Give it a few months, the loan will be back and I'll have myself a new toy.

    No diesel this time though. MPG doesn't matter anymore.

    Re: I think I\'ve got an illness....

    It's a complete no-brainer - the RS6 is in a different league to all the others on your list - glad to see you want the saloon as I think it looks absolutely gorgeous. Totally understated supercar that is top of my list of must-have cars. Ignore the stuff about parking and narrow roads and go for it! You know you want to........

    RS6 saloon gets my vote, I think they're great, I'd even be tempted to get it remapped, take the badges off and laugh my arse off when you make other road users with "proper sports cars" look silly.

    thats exactly the reason I'd love one... but unfortunately the only reason.

    However, after a few tanks of petrol at 80 each, and having to drive it like miss daisey round the city I'd just end up hating it.

    I'd spend my money on a porsche for some real fun.

    Re: I think I\'ve got an illness....

    The RS6 loses money,right ?

    So it makes it affordable to Eeef.

    But it also means he has the added stress of it depreciating even more,doesn't it ?

    Something that makes it's own ozone hole and loses money faster than a Jade Goody lecture tour doesn't appeal to me,thanks.

    funnily enough, drove my mates new style 911 over the weekend for a fair old distance, my opinion of them has totally changed, this one was actually enjoyable so i'd begin to consider those, though for the cash its a long way out!

    Re: I think I\'ve got an illness....

    Eeef,

    Are you not including the new tiTTy on your list ?

    I think if it were me, I'd stick with an oil burning stove. If you believe Auto Express, fuel prices are set to rocket this year - they are saying 1.50/litre.

    If true, petrol car re-sale values will plummet - good if you buying, but not when you come to sell it !

    No, diesel will go up too, but I would expect more people to ditch petrol in favour of diesel as a result, to reduce their fuel costs.

    Must admit,I deliberately went for the 1.5 turbo diesel when ordering the wife's new Clio.

    Partly because of the 65mpg,which will be of great value in the present time,and partly looking ahead to resale time.

    Yep. I'd consider the RS4 in 12-18 months time. There are already 12 available from dealers (albeit expected later in the year), so it can't be all that popular. Plus a fully loaded one on Ebay, available now, at what appears to be list has had no bids.
