    Whats the logical next car, post S4

    So what cars are people looking at, now that the old girls are getting long in the tooth?

    I'm quite happy with my TQS tbh.

    Dont like the B6, and the B7/8's are still too expensive.

    I do have a soft spot for the C5 A6 4.2 though, in avant guise. The Auto box would do my head in though, and ripping it out for a manual would be a must.

    move to london was stuck in traffic yesterday, a journey which would normally take 25 mins took me an HOUR AND A HALF!!!!, although i was p*ssed off, just looked at the other drivers even more frustrated with their old fashioned manuals



    i dont mind the b6, dont like the standard b7 but love the b8

    not done with mine yet but I am looking for a larger auto for the "family" car
    I am looking at a C5 A6 2.5tdi Avant Q when the golf comes off lease. 3.0l is also a possible but seems to hold too much of a premium to justify the lower fuel consumption
    Seriously thought about an RS6 (C5) but I would have to get rid of mine and that is just not on!

    I was seriously considering a b7 S4 2005 as they're becoming more affordable. My annual mileage is very low therefore fuel cost isn't an issue, the main issue is insurance cost. The lowest quote I found was Ł1200+ because of the higher risk in parts of Newcastle.

    The other reason preventing me from changing is my A4 refuses to die. It's bullet proof.

    I will probably keep my A4 until its dies or I have the cash to buy an RS4 (B5) or an old 911.

    ^^^ Exactly my thoughts. Been toying with the 996 (911) idea for a while
