What is the biggest and best bang for your buck for a grand?

I do this from time to time, I get fed up with my new, leased whatever and task myself to find a wafty old banger and see how long I can make it last. My previous best was a £1000 Lexus LS400 that just fucking kept going and going and going until someone offered me £1500 for it

Current favourite is a 2000 £1k Audi A8 3.7 Quattro Sport. Looks alright, sunroof and elecy windows all work drives alright air con don't work and it's 7 years past its due cambelt change. Sounds perfect

Unless you can tell me different??


And yes, I'm trying to distract you all from our horrible politics and horrible football team in WHO old fashioned stylee.

Stick carthrottle in you tube.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Think the trick here is to get a car for 10% of its new price , 3k BMW’s etc.

There is a car channel on you tube where 3 blokes buy absolute shitters for buttons and drive them about.

S500 with 180k on the clock for a grand (1% of its new price) few months mot and off you go.

Prob get a few 100 back from the breakers.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Careful with those aftermarket ones MPI - I had a Pioneer one fitted to my old Civic, was supposed to be one of the best out there but the DAB kept cutting out, the resolution was poor and if you were using any of the maps apps (Google/Apple/Waze) it stopped you using any of the music.

Ridiculous.

The manufacturer one in my current car is fine

Ted,

Theres a company that will upgrade the central console to provide a colour screen and latest Google and Apple connectivity.

Frankly its the only thing I would miss from a modern car so am really keen to look for one once the Black Lab is no longer a factor.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Been looking at them myself Ted, but not practical for the lab.


Yep can understand that Moncs it's a joke calling them a 4 seater but they're a lovely car they were 55k when new plus the Lexus quality is superb ! we have an IS 2.5 and would recommend them all day long.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Thought it worth rebooting this thread as I got let down on my purchase of Lexus SC 430 so I'm still on the look out but since I started looking they have definitely appreciated in value which makes my let down harder to take.

Chelmsford has an online catalogue you can download for free but you do have to sign up. Personally I wouldn’t buy anything unseen unless it was very new and had an hours warranty.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Good to see my thread still running, some lovely, proper motors here, keep them coming lads.

As for me, my Audi went off to someone in the club as my S8 will be finished soon. And then a rather untidy 2008 Lexus RX400h with 155,000 miles on it popped up for just over 2 grand and I had it. Big scratch mark down it, hardly any history, sweet as a nut, hybrid system is solid

Lots of 3s, from late 90s to today. Few others inbetween (Merc, Jag, Audi) but always come back to BMW.

Cheers. That's what I thought too. Not sure about older ones, but other than servicing, tyres and windscreens etc, I don't recall having to get anything changed/repaired on the ones I've had so far?
