hi all.

time has come to sell my very much car.

time for a change and also could do with freeing up some cash for a couple of months.

question is... after selling the car and then selling the house i'll be looking to spend around 15K on my next car.

currently looking at...focus rs and leon cupra r. the rs is winning me over at the moment but does anyone else have any othe ideas.???

Depends on what you want but for 15k you should be able to pick up either a Focus ST2 or maybe a Golf GTi. The RS is nice but you wouldn't want to leave it anywhere or cover huge mileage in it. How about an early Boxter or a 330d

The rs will start depreciating like a stone soon as the st's come to the used market.

It also depends on wheathere your going to mod it again if you are I
would run with an audi a4 either a cabriolet or avant depnding on what
you need

I like the Focus RS idea, I don't think it will depreciate as it was a limited run and there are so many die hard Ford RS nuts that wouldn't even consider the new ST because it's got the wrong badge (ST not RS). The RS is a modern classic and will hold it's value well. It's not really depreciated that much up to now, although you will have to like torque steer to live with one!

What about an Evo 8, there's an FQ330 on this page : http://atsearch.autotrader.co.uk/WWW/cars_search.asp?modelexact=1&lid=search_used_cars_full&make=MITSUBISHI&model=LANCER&variant=evo&keywords=&min_pr=14000&max_pr=16000&mileage=&agerange=&postcode=cm8+1pz&miles=60&max_records=200&source=0&photo=1&sort=3&ukcarsearch_full=SEARCH

Or maybe an Audi S3 or TT??

the RS will hold it's price pretty well as said only 4500 made and all sold.after the initial drop should be ok for few years yet.

would like some sort of back seats just incase.but as it will only be me and felix(my little boy) from now on no real need.

also like...

TT coupe.

civic R.

not keen on boxer or BMW's.

like the evo , S3 and A4 ideas.

not really looking for a car to mod would rather spend the cash on a better car to start this time.

no point looking at an indavidual car as it would be sold by the time i'm ready.

keep the ideas coming. want something with power and looks.

"not really looking for a car to mod would rather spend the cash on a better car to start this time".

Are you sure about that How much did you intend doing to your golf.

I know i got mine to stop me spending money on Mk 2's,just didnt turn out that way and probaly spent more on the Mk 4 then any car i have had.

S3 for me too, there was an absolute cracker on ebay a few weeks ago in red (the best colour imo), 15k on the clock, fully loaded except navi for 15.5k.

if it was me .. all seriousness it would either be a mk5 gti OR more than likely a mkiv R32 with some anthracite BBS chs'

as for the RS's never depreciating look at the Mk R32 there were less
than 5000 sold.. now the mk5 gti and r32 has hit look what has
happened......

I know you maybe thinking the escort cosworth didnt depreciate ... bu t
that car never had a follow up as it happened at the end of the
supercar era its nearest rival was the subaru and that was 5 years
later.

howabout a nice Audi A3 3.2 with the S-Line kit lovely lovely car dont
just look at phots they look much better in the flesh than in mags and
on the net.
