    S3 - economy and power
    S4 - noise and power
    M3 - handling
    S8 - sheer class
    750i - beast and £6k left over judging from price on ebay.

    Depends on what you;re looking for in a car. If I had £10K I would want something relatively cheap to insure, has good perfornamce and fun handling, relatively practical and fuel efficient, and nothing too old and low mileage, the car? a second hand Renault Clio 182 with Cup options. Although a Honda Integra Type R would be a very close second.

    Let me guess - Your married /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif!!!. Our lass would take about 2 minutes to spend £10k and it certainly wouldn't be on a car or extras for it.

    That said - New Kitchen / Bathroom / whole house decorated (even though most of it has just been done) / New Garage roof / New Hoover / and finally, for car, new air freshner !!

    I am married, that is true, but that's got nowt to do with it. Let's just say, the car's in better shape than the house.

    I'd settle for £5k!

    Judging by the size of those beasties you'd only need the one!

    Spend the other £5k on enough Viagra to keep you going /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    Mmm.... S3 or S4, a decent S4 is hard to come by.

    I have been thinking aout something cheap to insure, but even an A3 1.6 will cost me 600 for the year, rather stick to my 1k a year for an S4/3 type car and pay the extra.

    Ugh... frustrating. An S3 seems a better buy as the mileages are lower - and they are probably easier to sell I would guess...?

    Anyway... decisions decisions. Just bought a flat which does not help cash flow /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I was just wondering what the s4 feels like to drive, am also lukin to get one. will try a test drive soon.

    I drove my friends A4 1.8T and it seems to hav crappy turbo lag. and takes forever to reach 0-100mph. (although 0-60 is nippy). I also drove the new A4 1.8T cab which the same friend has recently bought. This is nice but not as fun to drive (is tiptronic auto).

    I would love an S4 - but I really want something under 60k... ideally under 50k, but now we are talking 15k.

    It is looking more and more like an S3... seems like the sensible buy... :/
