    A lottery win about cars

    Like most people I sit down with the misses and plan what we would do if we won the lottery.
    Apart from all the buy this house, buy this car, go here, go there, invest and so on.

    Would you keep your current car/s?
    If you did keep any of them why, what would you do to them?

    The misses don't understand why I would keep the Audi and spend all that time and money getting it 100% the way I would like to just store it in a garage.
    For me its the challenge of doing it and alot of sentimental value for the car as well.

    What would you do?

    I'd keep mine and spend a bucket load on it, overall it's the most fun car I've owned and I would love to make it more fun, think I would paint it a crazy colour too

    Depends on the size of the win doesn't it? If I won £10m+, then I wouldn't keep any of my current car's, I would probably donate my S3's as a prize for an ASN raffle, with all proceeds going to charity, and buy myself a R8 V10!
    If it was £1m, then the car's are staying, I would invest in property and probably buy myself the lowest mileage B7 RS4 I could find, instead of a supercar.

    I would keep mine regardless of what the win was, I would just like to tidy it up and have it running sweet, alongside the R8

    Size of the win would be the decide but both current cars would be kept.

    Escort would be stripped and fully restored with a few more choice tweeks to make it even quicker. Audi would get money thrown at it to make it how I want it.

    New cars, Audi RS4 B5 with loads of tweeks and a Range Rover just to annoy the Hell out of the tree huggers.

    Regardless of size of the sum, I still would keep my A3 and tune it plus make it into mint and running sweet. And buy another one the high mileager but mint body and make it into mint but go crazy with colour, alloys and engine probably 2.7 tdi transplant and tune it crazy!

    And buy myself an 1967 Shelby GT500 regardless of cost. And put it into air contained room where I can view it inside the house probably next the dinning room as I fell in love with it when I first saw it when I was 15 and never out of love with it!

    And buy myself maybe an Range Rover Sport Supercharged or Project Kahn Range Rover! and BMW M1/M3

    I would keep my car forever. Had it since brand new and it'll be 13 this year, served me well and still going strong (touch wood). I Won't be doing anything to it cos it's only a baby 1.6 sport so pointless really. I'd buy a really posh formula 1 chauffeur driven arctic lorry to swan about the place with the little uns and their toys, car seats, puke bags etc. With an R8 tucked away just for me incase I need to quickly get away from the screaming monsters lol.

    I'd keep hold of my car too, it's got sentimental value now and just isn't worth selling. I will also have a huge house with enough garage space for it and 10 other cars anyway

    I'd then go and buy one of these:

    as with most people, the current car would be kept and lots of money would be spent on it!

    Maybe i'd start using audi main dealers for parts/servicing/repairs etc, but that would have to be a huge win.......

    And I would have to do my dream annoyance to the greenies. Buy a Toyota Prius, rip its guts out and install Toyota Celica GT4 engine and running gear with a big turbo, anti lag and generally make it as anti-social as possible

    I don't think it'd take much to get my car to where I ultimately want it, certainly wouldn't be any need for serious upgrades if I had the like of a B7 RS4, V10 R8 etc beside it in the garage and selling it wouldn't make much sense for the money. I'd keep the S3 for the size, aswell as being pretty much my ideal car right now. I'd have a Rangie immediately, with all the bells and whistles, and then I'd sort the family with suitable cars too (Ma wants a 4x4 too, Dad would get something like an SL, brothers want a XFR and an Aston Vantage V12).

    The "what would you do" game is fun, but I'd rather dream of maybe £30k so I could buy a nice flat and get my car properly sorted.
