    when i was 17 i got a job in a bodyshop just after i started my boss bought an ur quattro in tornado red 87 model, i instantly fell in love with it and made sure i always got the job of working on it. my boss liked me doing this as i had a 90 quattro at the time. eventually he took it off the road and i did a lot of work on it during the near bare shell rebuild including a 3k hifi install. he still owns the car 16 years on! Ive been looking at buying a b5 s4 soon but now after seeing a program on the audi channel i really am considering keeping my 2.8 q and having a ur quattro 20v as a toy. Il never forget the noise, digital dash and those arches. it would be so sad to have never owned the 1 car that got me obssesed with audi in the first place while they are still affordable.

    I'd love one, but i've been told they can be a bit of a money pit buy my local Audi specialist who owns one. He said " sometimes it's like standing in the shower ripping up £50 notes".

    But i'd say if it's your dream car buy one if only to own it for a year it's worth it.

    I always wanted a 911 and about 2 and a half years ago i bought one. It did cost alot to run but i did love it. Unfortunately it met a sticky end but at least i had it for a year and got it out of my system but you never know, i might buy a more recent one in years to come.

    Go on you know you wanna, you're only young once!!! ;)

    About 10-12k i reckon which is about what i was thinking of spending on an s4. I would settle for a nice 10v but by todays standards they're not very fast. if i modded a 20v it could be a very quick car but not a very nice daily driver, so i'd keep the 2.8 a4 therefore giving me a no compromise tuning ability on the ur ie- it would'nt matter how loud it was or if it had a heavy clutch etc. where as an everyday s4 would have to be quiet, smooth, reliable and clock up a lot of miles.

    Cars are like women. You cannot rationalise or put a value on dreams.
    If you can do it and still pay the mortgage then you must do it.

    However.........sometimes the memory is better than the reality!
    I used to love big Capris......then i bought one........what a pile of **** (cars had just moved on too much)

    Sometimes it's a case of never meet your heroes......

    Fortunately it wasn't like that with the 911, it was the ********.

    i think it would be cheaper to own as a second car, lower miles, classic insurance, its just finding the right one. Its deffinatly a potential money pit but then so is every car if you start modding it, and it would'nt suffer as much depreciation as an s4. I bet the parts are thin on the ground now though. Maybe it would be a dissapointment after driving modern cars, but im sure it would still feel special in its own way.

    They are indeed very nice cars, I have a friend with a mint white one.

    He looks after it very well and one year he spent loads on it but after that he just polished and i think it never saw a garage for any thing less than a oil change.
    Maybe it could be worth looking at buying something that needs a little work and get stuck in :beerchug:
