    It's a different world..

    Yesterday evening a young (25 year old ish) lad came in to discuss some work. After saying goodbye he went off to the car park and I heard a lovely growling sound so I ran down to the car park to investigate..

    It was a gorgeous Audi R8 (V8) that had had the carbon fibre panels colour coded red to match the rest of the body. I went to have a closer look and the owner said he's getting rid of it to buy a Lambo in a few weeks!

    Some people have all the luck!!

    I did ask if he fancied swapping for my A4 but it hadn't been cleaned which I think may have put him off ha.

    Or has a very successful Dad. That's the sort of customer I see at MB;

    "Dad wants me to have a nice safe new car that he can trust, so we're looking at an SLK 280, but not sure If I can live with only two seats.."

    It is, indeed, another world.

    i think i'd spend most of it on modified things tbh.

    Probably drop a proportion building a full offroad-challenge spec land rover, buy a sensible daily driver like an A8 V8 TDi , finish off any projects and buy some american muscle...

    I'd go to KFC and have a two piece variety meal, with a Pepsi.

    And since i'd be loaded, I'd have it made large!

    150000 would get me a B7 RS4 with a few tweaks for the daily, and an R34 GTR with some serious work for my toy.

    That's thinking about it quickly, or I'd be here all night......

    R8, Lambo, Ferrari 360, 911 GT3 RS, Caterham/Westfield Hayabusa engine, Bowler Wildcat, custom '57 Chevy Bel Air, Escort Cosworth,

    Ok now I'm gong bed to dream about my imaginery money!

    I'd buy a B5 S4 GT28RS swap, mapped etc for daily.

    With the money left, aim for an S1! :P (or a rep will do!)

    RS4 for a daily, then a 964 RS for fun and a Vanquish or Murcielago for being a poser at weekends.

    I think that amount of money would just about cover my current credit card situation... maybe enough to take the car to a jet wash afterwards, then again I may come out with less car than went in!!!! ...

    B5 RS4 with KO4's for the run about (35k tops)
    993 RS (50k tops)
    Espace V6 for the school run (no idea but less than 20k!)

    then I would spend the rest on track days!

    Alright. 150k? I would have:-
    1985 XR4i
    1986 Opel Monza 3.0GSE
    1990 Audi V8
    1997 Ferrari 456GTM
    2003 MB CL65 AMG

    Probably spend three grand or so on my A4
    And have an awful lot of change.

    Being completely honest, the vast majority of cars for sale today bore the hits out of me. Even the R8, Fezzas, Nobles what have you. I'd be glad for a mate to have one I can occasionally take out for a spank, but I wouldn't want to own one.

    Even at work, when I find myself driving SLs and CLK Cabs I can't help but feel I look like a tanker. Couldn't live with that image. I hate cars that "impress people"

    You can't beat 'impressive' performance from a mild looking saloon or estate though

    Well that's true enough. In fact, I would put the 612hp CL65 AMG I drove the other day on the list. Christ it's fast. Almost dangerous.

    lol thinking of trackdays and expensive porsches, was at a trackday at knockhill recently and a chap turned up in his 997 GT3. It was rather wet and the second lap out he managed to spin it and put it onto the grass in the middle of the hairpin. Then, unlike every other driver there that spun it, he got pulled out, left the track and drove home!

    Clearly a pussy!
