    You do wonder what the point is. Had a spin on an old Kwakka a few months ago. Thirty years old but still got to seventy before my stomach did.

    We’re running a Golf R just shy of 400bhp, 0-60 is 3.2secs.
    @Pin 5 had a nice Seat.

    Was looking to get an RS3 after Florida this year but SWMBO and the eldest are pushing for a Merc A45 AMG

    @gasmarc wait till you see the Skylines when Nizmo have had a play

    I do like a merc but the prices for some of there old gear is eye watering . I did have a lift in a merc con amg after a track day. I think the first thing I said when i could speak was who needs drugs.:ROFLMAO:. I think he mentioned 500bhp for the one we were in which is there track day car. And I thought the jag was quick at 5.6 :LOL:

    New A45 is faster but I don't think it sounds as good as the old A45. I've got an obsession with wanting am rs3 at the minute just for the 5 pot and the sound.

    Plus I want awd/4wd :sneaky:

    Until the RS6 came to a corner, then the skyline would pi55 all over it. I like Audi’s but they don’t handle as good as they should

    The old Audi and Merc were very well made cars. I use to have the privilage of getting a lift some mornings with a petrol head who had what looked like a basic audi 80 but had the gti engine or bigger :LOL:
