so what would you buy?

on Fri Mar 10, 2017 11:40 am
lets say, for example, you have £15k to spend on a new car - I know what I want, I want fun, weekend toy, power, speed and excitement in an auto guise and preferably some displacement although happy with smaller displacement and a turbo or two.

but if it were your 15k, what would you buy and why?, practicality need not apply

I don't recommend a Subaru Impreza unless you want to be the only person in the entire town in one in the UK. The do have a good seating for big people. I can tell it was build for big people.... and not me.

So I recommend the Nissan you were talking about with the convertible roof.

Spot,

£15K would get you a very high spec on a used Jag!

£10K would make me consider selling you my 51 reg X Type - probably the best kept in the UK...

Look at the used S Types - with the big engines - I drove a service one a while back - awesome!

For 15k I'd get what I already have - you can get a very good (low mileage) SV8 for about £12000. Or for about £17000 you could get an XFR with about 70k miles.

S4 and S5 are fairly dull to drive ...

I think we need a rear wheel drive policy !!

An enviable position!

Z4? http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201701121243696

Or a good condition E46 M3 - a good investment as a future classic, and highly regarded cars.
