this is just a thread to see if you had a certain budget to buy a new car after selling your current car, what would you buy. try and keep prices realistic instead of picking between a lambo and Ferrari, unless that's a option for you lol be interesting to see other members car choices..

realistically for me, if my max budget was £15k or so, I would have a hard decision choosing between a fd2 or evo 10.. after owning both type r's and evos in the past, these would always be my choice but it would be a hard one to make but I think the evo 10 tho would be my choice :D

Depends what you need it for I guess!
I'm guessing from the size of your choices it has to be alright for a family car too?

If I did sell the 9, I would see myself buying an ATR and pocketing the difference, or putting in a tad extra and going for the K20 engined Euro R.

Is this going to be your sole vehicle? Between the two I'd go for a FD2 purely because it will be cheaper to run. If I had 15k to spend I'd buy a £1500 60mpg diesel runaround, save up another 5k and buy an NSX. That at least will not depreciate dramatically if at all.

I think it would be down to either an fd2 or an r32 gtr. Don't know which I'd choose but thankfully I don't have to for this thread!

I wouldn't buy any car in the region of 15k.
Any twat with no brain and a loan can do that.

I'd rather build something like a mk1/2 escort, it would be much more fun and maintain value

Since I do navigating in Ireland at least once a month, I normally sit in mk2's costing from 50000+ so I've no need to buy one :D but a nice escort would be nice to have

Nice! The cost of full on rally escorts is crazy, 15k would build a nice fast road/track car though

50k!! Ludicrous! I'd get an Aston Martin for that. But I guess if people enjoy it enough then what does it matter.
