Aren't those Audi's 400bhp+ ? That's plain nuts.

An e34 m5 touring would also be pretty sweet, very q car.


The RS6 is 450bhp, with the later ones being 480bhp :twisted:
The germans got the M5 touring, uk had to settle for the patheic 540i :wink:

Glad I never crashed it coz they were made of french tin foil and had a habit of setting on fire if they went over!


My first 205 got totalled when I rear-ended my future father-in-law when he stopped suddenly (someone stepped out in front of him, I was following too close). His towbar made a nice mess of the engine.

My second one suffered a more grisly death - coming out of Lyneham one evening on a road that hadn't been swept after a lorry jack-knifed the day before, just as it hit dew point, I found the limits of traction. The car went through a road sign, down a ditch, rolled and smacked a tree. I was out of there in about ten seconds, minus one shoe, but with only a cut thumb to show for it. Fire crew reckoned I was lucky to escape without broken legs, and I'm glad I didn't go off the 60ft drop on the other side of the road.

Somehow, after that, I've been banned from owning 205s by my parter!

My wife's 1st car was a 205xs, she's luck to be alive after prang in fog, she pulled out of a side road when it looked clear, woke up with the front wing at nearly 90 degrees to the door!

A good mate of mine also hit a cow in a M16 engined GTi, that made a mess I can assure you! Wrote off car and killed cow, which ruptured all over the car and occupants.

Farmer and he called it 50 50!

I know there are a few Saab lovers on here .

In a house next to one of my ride i see an old SAAB . i mean really old . I dont think owner is bothered about it as it is full of green moss . It looks like an estate with a rounded bonnet .
