    you can't go wrong with an A4 avant. the 1.8T engine has its issues but if looked after can be realy reliable. my mate had on with 202k on it.

    I prefer the TDi lumps but thats just me

    theres nothing wrong with a Ford but needs to be pre 90's for me. and ideally RWD

    heres my brothers escort

    That does look bloody good, the wheels really set it off.

    Those Cologne V6's were a bit **** though, a Cosworth V6 conversion in there (or a YB) would have sorted it nicely.
