    Dtm going. What next?

    Ok so I'm getting rid of my imola stage 2 dtm. I don't want the finance hanging over me. It will allow me to save for a car. I will have 3k ish. Would it be daft to go back to a b5 s4? What other cars would you suggest on a 3-4k budget?

    mmm hard to give ideas for this one as the next car you choose at that price you will miss the DTM and start comparing you could go for S-line 1.8T Quattro B6 you may have to pay little more as being a quattro??

    It needs to be as fast if not faster. Doesn't have to be 4 door no. Want to stick with VAG as this is what we specialise in at work. Hence thinking s4. Mpg don't matter as its a weekend toy! Don't want a v8 really and would only want an rs not just an s.

    I always loved the B5 S4, I was sad when my dad replaced his with an A8 4.0 TDI. Would be interesting going into one and pla with it, the trouble is there are a lot of messed about with sheds out there and finding a good example might take a while. After having a 2.0T it would be hard for me to go back to a 1.8T, but the 8L S3s are still nice.

    think I'd be looking at an S3 8L mate. Them bam 1.8t 225's are a very tuneable engine. I had a Leon cupra r with the same engine, running about 280 bhp, went well! Shame it wasn't 4 wheel drive otherwise I'd recommend 1 of them do you still have that k04 or is it on the Dtm?

    I have the k04 s3 injectors and flange in a box. Only thing I got round to doing was modifying the downpipe flange. This will all be sold separately
