    That sounds reasonable enough. I queried insurance for a 2001 S6 worth about Ł10,000. Was quoted Ł730 and that included using the car for work purposes too.

    Nice little motor for the summer.

    The only thing that lets the roadster down is that is looks a bit odd with the roof up. Does look the biz with it down though with those nice shiny roll hoops.

    Is that not dead money though? Constructive critisism, why spend money on a car you dont like any more, the money you spend on it could cover the difference lost in a trade in deal for a newer car and better base for modding, just an idea

    Yea i see your point. But i know now after looking around that there's nothing else i want at the moment. Apart from an S5 . So i'll proberably end up keeping it another year. Might treat it to some new shoes or something to freshen it up for the summer.

    hi m8

    i have been in a similar position to you for the past 3 months, i had a straight 6, 2.5 bm e36 coupe and loved it, and then i started looking for somthing else, i was also seriously considering a mini cooper s but every time i nailed the straight 6 engine of my bmw i couldnt bring my self to get rid

    any way finally bit the bullet and, and replaced it with an early S3 this weekend and it is by far the best thing ive done ! its everything the Mini copper s trys to be ! im glad i didnt get a mini!

    anyways good luck finding somthing you want

    Just did a search on a s15 and there's not many about at all. I've always thought they were a very good looking car and obviously very quick. Could be worth a search.

    BMW Z4's worth considering, i used to have one & loved it. Superb RWD handling, peach of an engine & ther're surprisingly practicle. You should be able to find an early 2003 for 10k-ish...

    Look into the S15 if you want something different, lots of genuine importers about. www.sxoc.com is the owners club, I had an S14 and didnt personally like it as it had crap handling standard but they sorted all that out and upped the power on the S15. Plus they look awesome and they are very rare on the roads

    Not a real fan of of jap cars.

    My cousin has a 200sx drift car with a 1000 bhp skyline lump in it, he put's it into the european drift championships apparently. Not my cup of tea all that larking around.

    His Pug 205 with 4 wheel drive and a 350 bhp sunny GTIR lump was pretty tasty though.

    For Ł10k you could get a Smart Roadster Brabus, 115bhp per ton, mid-engined & rear wheel drive and a total total total laugh to drive!! Not to mention cheap on insurance, tax, and 50mpg+ if your gentle with it. On the downside they're only 2 seats and have no room to carry much! Other option is to get a standard Roadster like mine which dosent have some of the bodywork add-ons of the Brabus nor some of the leather & metal trims in the cabin, but they're on average Ł2k less for a fully loaded one compared to the Brabus, only 90 bhp per ton as standard but a Ł150 remap will get you a reliable 120bhp per ton!!

    All i'd say is go for a little test drive just for a laugh, you'd be hard pressed not to break into a smile!

    Cheers for the input guys i have lots to look through there. I have an importer looking into to what he can do for me on a S15. I hadn't thought of a Z4 but i will definately look into that. The 350z is hard to find for under 10k plus fuel and performance could be better. Brabus roadster... hmmmm i like them but i dunnooooo. Maybe i should take one for a spin.
