    If you had 10k... what would you buy next?

    I am bouncing round and round thinking S3, S4, B6 1.8TQ... what other thoughts do people have on cars?

    S3 - economy and power
    S4 - noise and power
    M3 - handling
    S8 - sheer class
    750i - beast and 6k left over judging from price on ebay.

    Depends on what you;re looking for in a car. If I had 10K I would want something relatively cheap to insure, has good perfornamce and fun handling, relatively practical and fuel efficient, and nothing too old and low mileage, the car? a second hand Renault Clio 182 with Cup options. Although a Honda Integra Type R would be a very close second.

    Let me guess - Your married [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]!!!. Our lass would take about 2 minutes to spend 10k and it certainly wouldn't be on a car or extras for it.

    That said - New Kitchen / Bathroom / whole house decorated (even though most of it has just been done) / New Garage roof / New Hoover / and finally, for car, new air freshner !!

    I am married, that is true, but that's got nowt to do with it. Let's just say, the car's in better shape than the house.

    I'd settle for 5k!

    Judging by the size of those beasties you'd only need the one!

    Spend the other 5k on enough Viagra to keep you going [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]

    Mmm.... S3 or S4, a decent S4 is hard to come by.

    I have been thinking aout something cheap to insure, but even an A3 1.6 will cost me 600 for the year, rather stick to my 1k a year for an S4/3 type car and pay the extra.

    Ugh... frustrating. An S3 seems a better buy as the mileages are lower - and they are probably easier to sell I would guess...?

    Anyway... decisions decisions. Just bought a flat which does not help cash flow [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Well i must say there is a lovely TVR Tuscan 6 speed (the one in swordfish) in a garage just round from my house and on a '02 plate going for 30k and its amazing! I would definately think about that! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif[/img]

    Re: If you had 10k... what would you buy next?

    I was just wondering what the s4 feels like to drive, am also lukin to get one. will try a test drive soon.

    I drove my friends A4 1.8T and it seems to hav crappy turbo lag. and takes forever to reach 0-100mph. (although 0-60 is nippy). I also drove the new A4 1.8T cab which the same friend has recently bought. This is nice but not as fun to drive (is tiptronic auto).

    I would love an S4 - but I really want something under 60k... ideally under 50k, but now we are talking 15k.

    It is looking more and more like an S3... seems like the sensible buy... :/
