    just had a quick scan of fleebay seen this i remember my friend bought one a while back paid a lot of money for his.
    1998 MERCEDES SLK 230 KOMPRESSOR AUTO BLUE on eBay (end time 26-Mar-11 19:03:54 GMT) for £3.5k now i know its old but a good price nonetheless shame its a 2 seater! would have been nice for the wife i suppose why its cheap is the price of insurance these days

    post up what you think is a good price for a car that you thought was out of your range

    Some thing like this.

    Volkswagen : 240 BHP mk2 Golf G60

    Although my ideal Mk2 Golf would be an original GTI G60 in Metallic Aubergine with under 100k miles. I've seen the odd one for sale, but can't bring myself to buy one, even though I could afford it! Maybe it will stay a dream car, as I have an 89' Big bumper 16v anyways, and can't see myself paying the premium just for G60 power in my favourite colour.

    This, and with the spare grand add some modifications.

    If one of these was in any way shape or form a sensible daily car I would drop my A4 in a heartbeat

    Unfortunately I work as a lighting engineer for an engineering consultancy which means my car is often found with a big yellow flashing light on the roof driving round the county. It's thanks to this why I've done nearly 65k miles since I got it three years ago :(

    LoL. Have to admit I have been called to a site when I had my track car at the office. That looked really odd with "Highway Maintenance" in the back and Orange lamp on the top. Might have a photo of that somewhere.

    I'd have to but either an E30 BMW Sport or a B5 S4.

    Mine would have to be a Corrado Storm

    1995 VOLKSWAGEN CORRADO 2.9 VR6 3dr Coupe

    Always wanted one of these, even when I had the money to buy one, the insurance on one of these was just ridiculous.

    Later on in life, I would still like to get another Mk2 GTI or a Corrado of any form really.

    MX5 with a turbo slapped on it, or a Caterham/Westfield.

    Might do it next year anyway...

    Cheers,
