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.

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?

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Bungo, just mean from a running costs and garage bills perspective.

They are a superb car though, often rated one of the best ever cars BMW have made.

Why too sensible?

A 5 series is on my radar currently, so I'd be interested to know why you swerved one.

Still see a fair few Volvo 240's and 760's on the road. Built like tanks.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
I've always fancied a 4 series e39. 3.5 or 4 litre one. They've aged well. But I'm too sensible and own a Ford Focus mk2, which in fairness is a great car.

Re: Cheap, big old stoopid car recommendations
Joe,

What car is that in? I'm assuming it's a straight six, don't think BMW ever done a V6 engine? Shame really.

But I seem to remember the 3.0 petrol and diesel are both good engines, the diesel especially even though I'd never have a soot chucker, not my cuppa, no matter how good and torquey

Should have bought it this week! 65 plate 640d went through BCA today at 2 grand under already cheap CAP average.

Who cares about the fuel, it's all about the fun! Plus petrol is super cheap right now, I paid 122 for a tank of 99ron Momentum the other day from Tesco, the normal 95ron stuff was 115
