Come on then! ideas!

Rules:
Insurance can go as high as whatever an E36 M3 Evo/RX-8 is (or basically anything but most grp20 cars!)
6k Budget
No gay ass 4wd! Prefer RWD, as only FWD option is a Teg.

Opinions :chill:

None. Stick with what you have and buy a house.

Thanks for the comments so far, nothing I'm not looking at already - I forgot to mention that it would need 4 seats just in case! Otherwise I'd be getting an MX-5/Roadster with a cheeky supercharger or something! Cheap, well designed and fun! :D

DC2's are asking too much for what they are at the end of the day, and DC5's are still a tinnnnyyy bit more than what I'm willing to pay. Never know early next year though!

I'd give it a go, but ultimately it'll be a diagonal step upward/forward and not enough of a change if I'm honest.

I'll go for a few test drives in Jan and see what I come out with :thumbsup:

Alot of AWD cars have driveline swaps nowadays so you can have FWD/AWD/RWD out of them... Usually to save petrol as AWD nearly halves the economy.

I don't want nor need a house :lol: But I've already made my mind up, so thank you all for the suggestions, I'll post some pics up once I sell the GTi-6!

I tell you what though, I'd love an Evo 5 with fully RWD transmission :o How much would a swap set someone back from a decent garage?

listen man get a toyota aristo (lexus gs300) but get the aristo v300 - identical engine to a supra twin turbo and guess how much you can get them for with full spec... 2.5-4k!!!
spend a grand and you got 450rwhp!!
definately the most luxurious massive beast id go for.
