Guys I don't know if a Land Cruiser meets John's criteria of "quickish"? I do like them though, and the Nissan Patrol.
I saw a patrol with an rb26det in it....

Some great suggestions.
I actually started out looking at A4s but I sat in one and wasnt blown over as they hold value too well - A6s had more gear for the same money. Land cruiser etc definately doest match my speed aspirations! Cool though. The high performance...er...options made me chuckle. Surprised by the golfs tow limit, but too late.

This thread was helpful, as I went to look at what Volvo were upto.

I have bought a 60k V60 R design Premium Nav D5. Its twin turbo 2.4, 215bhp and sounds sooo good for an oil burner.

Good choice with the Volvo, we had one in and I quite liked it, easier to work on than the German stuff as well
