    Was looking to upgrade my car, but now looking to downgrade to fund upgrading my wife's car....

    Looking at spending 10k, needs to have 4 doors, but still a fast car, but one that won't completely hammer me on running costs, so also reliable.

    I'm leaning towards a b6 s4 saloon at the moment (always fancied a v8...), but not sure, any other suggestions?

    If you are considering an S4, you might aswell have a look at these too!

    If you want something that wil not " completely hammer you on running costs" avoid V8's imo.

    I suppose when I say not hammer, I mean like an rs4. I'm ok with low mpg, it's costs like £2k for discs etc. That I don't want to be forking out for

    With 10k I'd go with either a B6 S4 or if you want a really quick V8 an E39 M5.
