Am toying with selling up. Not sure though. Can't decide. Gaz said a shouldn't and ross said a shouldn't

 

 

Well I'll 3rd that and say you shouldn't. It may be pissing you off just now but you will regret not having it.

It’s been a long time since I was on here but finally back on my feet and bought some new toys. Hopefully everyone is doing well during these crap times. Seems once you have a bug for modifying it doesn’t stop no matter what you buy. Well the old truck got sold on and had a few cars in between. Bmw 535D with hybrid turbos 414hp wasn’t bad for a Nazi half track. Moved to an Audi S4 the 4.2 V8 which was okay apart from really awful fuel economy but it made a fantastic noise. Stepped up to the car I have now which is the Supercharged S4 Avant. At last Dyno it was 497.7 Hp but it’s had upgraded software since and I expect its shunted me just over the 500hp Mark now. I have to say it’s the best car I’ve had to date. It’s no iconic mkiv but ticks all the boxes for me these days. Logged a draggy time of 3.6 to 60 with 034 Motorsport’s dynamic launch control which isn’t bad at all. I suppose a few people now have moved on from their Supra days never to be lived again with current prices but must be a good feeling to know your Supra is just going up in value every year. All the best. Keep safe. :)

I love Audi estates, proper sleepers and perfect all rounders without all the SUV maintenance costs. Bet that goes well with 500bhp!

 

My next daily will be a Audi/VAG estate :D

Does everything mate. Don’t miss the Supra at all with it. The traction control hasn’t came on yet it just sits and goes. I love it.

Hi Tony, I've gone a similar route since selling my Supra a few years ago.

When I decided to sell up we used the money to do some pretty amazing holidays over the following years and then eventually I had to have another car with some grunt to it so bought an B8 Audi S4 (saloon rather than the estate), and it had to be a manual gearbox of course. I also got one of the earlier years so that I pay the lower tax amount each year. Also got a decent bargain with it costing £10,500 with only 49,000 miles on the clock.

The 60% rear / 40% front drive split does mean the car finds it really hard to lose traction and it is a case of having little worry in planting your foot to the floor when you want to go.

Too heavy to be a fun track car but for road driving it is great.

I’d say it’s quicker to 100 than the single Supra I had. It’s really quick for what it is.
