    That 600bhp RS4 Powered S3 we saw on here a few days back. That would cover my top 5 nicely thanks.
    Slightly cheesy, but a classic V8 with a small block chevy dropped in.. Camaro, Mustang, etc etc.
    Totally addicted to boost.

    Williams 3, rarest of them all, in a different (nicer, deerp) shade of blue to the first two, this one was actually really prouduced in smaller numbers, and far better equipped! (Also the Speedlines fitted as standard are an extra half an inch wider on the Williams 3)

    Errm, it is a realistic possibility! So is owning a Porsche as a car tucked up in the garage!

    The Conversion to SWB by Dialynx's cost is dependant on your specification. Im not talking about the Genuine SportQuattros here

    I was contemplating getting one done when I was going to sell my Rallye 1st time around

    See where your coming from with the conversion.......but gotta be very well off to have an expensive car just sat in the garage for polishing and taking out on sunny days mate - Porsche I'd like is the last of the air cooled - going up in price if anything and not realistic at all...........

    Id say its totally realistic, I know loads of people with cars tucked away in garages, dunno maybe its just where Im from but its not unusual at all! Youd be amazed at whats hidden behind a few garages near you Id say

    Family friend has a 911 Targa with the Whale Tail tucked up along side a Caterham in his garage, uses an A4 daily

    Alot of people now seem to have nice cars hidden away, nice safe place to keep your money as they only seem to go up in price

    Sounds awful. Whale tails (i assume you mean the turbo spoiler) look hideous unless it's on a turbo and a 911 should be nothing but a coupe.

    My '77 was a non sport with no front or rear spoiler with the chrome window and light surrounds. Nice, clean and simple.

    Hate tarted up 70's and 80's 911's with cups on etc....

    Now brown is a good colour!

    Mine was petrol blue which is very similar to the lahsa green they used on the MK1 golf. Speaking of which, my MK1 GTI cabby is gold with the beige hood and brown dashboard. Proper 80's!

    And floored with the 14 inch BBs's...

    Yep, well spotted. Bought it in April 2001, was on the road at the end of September 2001 and has done about 8000 miles since. Fell in love with the Speedster when I saw Kelly McGillis in one in Top Gun and saved and saved until I could afford one. I even delayed buying my S3 by 3 years to buy the Speedster first!

    My Dad always wanted to build one with me and my bro, sadly thats not gonna happen now

    Would love to get one, think TopGun is one of my reasons for loving them too!

    I keep looking at Karmann Ghias but have to tell myself no, Id probably opt for one of them over a Chesil in reality as Ive always had a great love for them

    Stunning car you have there tho, one very jealous aircooled lover here

    I went to college with a lad who had an RS1600i, left hooker, and was mint! Shame all we used to do in it was smoke weed lol! Everyone used to tell me what a nice car i had, as id be sat in the right side lol! Was gooood for the ladies!!

    2. Mitsubishi Evolution VI Extreme or TME
    3. Mint Mk2 Golf GTI G60 in Aubergine
    4. Escort Cosworth running 350bhp+
    5. Nissan Skyline R32 running 450bhp+

    This is so hard, I'm not even convinced the above is my top 5 'realistic' cars for dry use only.... my S3 hardly comes out these days as it is lol.

    Any reason why this post is not in the General section? We would get a more balanced view on this, and not strictly A3/S3 owners.
