Beyond the mark v Golf R32, what would be your next step up? Say in the 30-40k bracket new?

And what are your aspirations from there, right upto 80-120k if you could afford those?

There are alot of 'aspirational' cars like the Audi TT which have become hairdressers cars IMO and are owned by every 30 something these days (and NEVER driven fast!)

Does the Bmw z4 fall into this same hairdresser category, like the z3 certainly does?

If given a free range there are so many cars I would like, but realistic dream cars are: my main goal would be a CLS class Merc, then a Porsche Cayenne, or a nice big engined 5-Series BMW.

Realistic next cars would be an old shape 5 Series Sport, or (and I know they are not the best car, but I love the looks) a 1 Series BMW probably a 120d.

If I won the lottery, it would be Astons, Ferraris but mostly a Maserati Quattroporte (again not the best car but wow what a looker and what a noise, and if you win the lottery then you can let your heart rule your head to your hearts content)

And Z4s my missus is looking to get one to replace her Streeka, and I don't care if I look like a hairdresser driving it but I can't wait!

What are your choices?

I have absolutely no desire for the mk5 R32 whatsoever. Maybe its because of the "joy" i've experienced with this car's build quality but its really put me off.

For 30-40k, I'd go for a 535d

Not sure about 80-120...would be quite happy to stick with 60K for an M5...or even an RS4 if ?60K was my upper limit

I honestly dont know what id buy beyond what i want currently - either a mark 5 gti or R32 golf!

I like the Bmw 6 series a great deal and they are around 60k new, so could get one for 30-40, but then I always viewed Bmws as grandad cars to a degree!

I'd agree if you'd said that about Jags...or to an extent Mercs ( although I wouldn't say no to the CLS either ) but BMWs ?[*-)]
Well Jaguars certainly yeah, the bmw 6 series looks great, not sure on the Z4, or on the M3

Im honest about not having the greatest knowledge about cars though, so feel free to post pics and specs to change my mind, or show me, as that's why i made this thread really!

at around the 30k mark, a 330d (that's what I went for!), above that a nice Merc (CLS) or Jag (S type R, XKR), or a 535d Sport Touring.....

More expensive still, no idea - no chance I'll ever have one so why worry! I do aspire to have the ones above one day....

I've left the VW fold 2 weeks ago - sold the Bora...

Got a Mazda MPS - better value, better customer service, better build and reliablity than the VWs we have had in the family.

If I had ?30+ it would be a 335d

There's soooo many dream cars that I'd need to win the lottery for. I've always dreamed of having a Porsche 911, I just love them so that would be a definate lottery car for me. If I had the money a Noble to go with it, a Koeniggsegg (sp?) and a classic '67 Mustang.

Realistically, I would have a new shape Honda Civic, or I'd love an Audi A3 or S3, and despite hairdresser comments, I do like the TT and would have one.

For the 30k mark, a nice BMW 330d or a Merc CLK (? - the 2 seater ones!) - how much are they anyway? dont really know, or a Lexus IS

Or a Nissan 350Z...
Honda S2000...
Ford GT40...
Jag XK

If this makes you an old man, bring on the slippers!
?30-?40k... BMW 335 Sport when its launched or a used M3
?80k.. Aston V8, new 911 C4S or Lambo Gallardo (1 year old)
?120K... I think I would have one of each of the above?
