Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Soo I'm will be dividing our house up this Fall by acquire my first Audi. I do want it to
serve as my "sports car" but NOT to drive everyday.

I have rented a few other sports cars before, however I don't want the $60k plus cost. I'd
really prefer a used Audi and it MUST a have manual transmission.

...well if it's a two seater, and has a disproportionally large motor for it's size IS a sports car...an "SUV" sport-utility vehicle has NOTHING to do with sports...it's like "butter flavor" ain't butter~

The A4 all aluminum is a sports car....may have four doors but the hp/weight ratio makes it so~

seek out a lonely road out in the desert and open 'er up a bit~ you'll know from sport then~

My MINI is a sports car, but isn't the cooper S, has only a 1.6 liter engine, but the 7 miles of hairpin curves near Calistoga is any driver's treat~ the MINI is THE most FUN ever!~ doesn't have to have supercharged rocket take-offs, but is fun like a go-kart~....and a fashion accessory for the wealthy~ luckily I've got the R50 with a timing chain...those poor hot rod devils with the cooper S have a timing belt~

2006 and only 34,000 miles on it former rental car has a few issues...the CVT automatic is a real treat...until you get used to it~ I can only recommend that you drive a MINI if you love to drive.~

LOL, thanks Judge_Roy and James... I assure you that my 6 foot 3.5inch frame will NOT be attempting to get in and out of a Mini Cooper.

John Cooper is six foot four...the design is a little tough to get in and out of, you kind-of have to roll yourself in, but it is CAVERNOUS---easily accommodating a tall man~

Test drive a MINI.

BMW is in charge of them, the documentation is superior...like for replacement parts....beamers are top notch~

Take your pick...cream of crop would be a used M3 (newer the better) or a used porsche...but there are so many options...a 2008 rs4....an s5....test drive and buy your favorite! I own a 2003 A4 and it is slooow (3.0l 6speed)...not a sports car...s4...closer...lol

S5 supercharged V6, will plaster a stupid grin on your face every time you get behind the wheel. even an older S4, 4.2l V8, is tons of fun, not all aluminum, front body panels are Al, rear is steel, aids in achieving near perfect 52/48 front/rear weight distribution. and quattro, true others make all wheel drive but none of them put the all wheel drive in their sports cars like Audi. IF you try out a mini, make sure its the S, the non-S is a wet dog. the S can be upgraded to get much better performance out of it. a friend had a 2009 mini S with many upgrades and was comparable to my 2006 stock A4 2.0T.
