I'm doing 100+ miles a day at the moment so I suppose diesel might be better.

Ascension, it's a mk4 GT TDI. In my eyes its a stone cold classic and I've done a fair bit to it so it's hard to get rid of tbh.

Probably time to get a "grown up" car though. Fancy a bit of RWD and cruise control.


Had a mk4 TDI Golf before going to an E46 320Cd some years ago. I'd have thought you'd be good in a 330Cd, especially if chipped.



Nice one, same taste in cars then. Still got the E46?

Get a Mk6 GTD - lots of fun



Looking at £8k+ seems like and always wanted a 3 series. They are good though.
 
Someone lend me £50k so I can get an E30 M3.

Nah, had a 330Ci E46 and E93 335i since then and have now got an E92 M3.  It's fair to say I'm quite a BMW fan

I suggest a 330ci manual is your best choice. A Clubsport model with a manual, low miles could earn you money if you look after it. Don't be tempted by cheap E46 M3s because they will be neglected and will cost you a fortune to put right. It's arguable that the 330ci handles better (tighter steering rack) and is very nearly as fast in the real world anyway...

If you fancy a slightly rawer experience but a bit slower, an E36 328i may be worth a look.

If you don't mind FWD then an Alfa Romeo Brera may be worth a look. Not quite as nice handling as the BMW but it's a bit less rapey on parts prices. Mixture of diesels and petrols, diesels probably better bet than the petrols.

Apologies just re-read it - a 330cd would be worth a try. I'd suggest an Alfa Romeo GT Cloverleaf diesel as the engines are robust, front suspension can be iffy.
How about a Volvo C30 or a Mercedes CLK? A lot less sporty than the BMWs or Alfas, but available with diesels, pretty quick and in budget. And they're arguably more comfortable cruisers, which is what I'd want for a 100-mile schlep.

Cheers - knew you'd try shoehorn an Alfa in there
 
Will test drive some 330d's in the future, looks like the one.

You can pick up the new 5 litre RHD Mustangs for 10k but I don't know.. just doesn't seem right. Just seems a bit shit.
 
Once you start looking at classic muscle cars I guess you're looking at silly money for ones in good condition or silly money to fly in parts.

Classic or modern?
If classic go for the one that appeals visually - they're not the last word in handling dexterity, any of them, but they look cool and parts are easily found on the internet.

Modern ones, I like the Dodge Challenger V8 but the handling's a bit numb. A Mustang with some suspension mods may be achievable for £15k
