Fuel prices irrelevant - just imagine you lived in the Middle East or something. £7 to fill up a Range Rover btw lol.

Yeah anyway, you've been given a £20,000 to spend solely on one car to keep as your everyday car. And for all you people that bang on about insurance, let's exclude that too.

Oh and to save traintracks1995 commenting, yes I know you'd buy some sort of Passat R or some tuned version.

To kick start, I'd probably buy this, or an E class with the same engine.

Lovely naturally aspirated V8, which sounds immense.

I can't drive and probably never will, but I've always wanted an Audi TT just because they look beautiful.

Whatever you want, as long as £20,000 or less. For that price I would go used all the way lol.

Buy a c63 but £20k wouldn't be enough, so I'd buy an M3 or an evo 10 fq330 sst and map it.

The previous version of the V12 BMW M5. Big back for the dogs, all the comforts you could ever need, looks understated, sounds amazing and goes like anything proverbially coming off a shovel.

I know what you mean, if the budget was say 25-30k, it'd be a c63 all day. you might get a battered one for 20k, or a cat d or whatever. but i wouldn't take it.

Yeah but for 20k you could only get a decent manual M3 not an auto
But then if you think about a 30k c63 you'd rather save up an extra couple grand and buy a GTR.
