    what you guys think

    as above im really wanting to get a vxr,and im tryin everything possible to get one credit cards to but it seems like i will have the car but not really be able to afford it and have fun with it,i want a new car and basicly my dad has my mums old car (2006 audi A4 2.0tdi soft top 11k miles,she now has a bmw x5) which he is having problems selling it with the currently climate,so basicly i was thinking sell my car then drive about in the audi untill im 21 when the vxr will become a hell of alot more cheaper and probs be able to afford a brand new vxr than a second hand one,to be honest my own mind is telling me to do that and help my dad out then buy the vxr when im 21 but i just really wanting to know you guys feelings ? do you see the car as hmmm nice motor or look at that homo in the softtop?

    i would never buy a brand new car anyway mate be best to get one 6 months old or so that way all the problems with them have usually been sorted out already and you get it alot cheaper
    personally i wouldnt mind the a4 myself as i been lookin at gettin rid of my 1.9 astra to get a a3

    Using credit cards to buy a car is pointless...if you can't afford it then it's time to re-think!

    Imo you cant compare the Audi to a VXR completely different! Im sure once you have owned the Audi for a while you will love it! Jx

    DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON CREDIT CARDS!

    especially if you'll be on the edge financially .. what happens if you lose your job?
    i guess i could always take the VXR off your hands for quick sale price

    imo its a bad idea

    sure new cars are good but i think if your gonna have to borrow for it .. its worth wwaiting for the right one to come up 2nd hand.

    stick with the audi for a year or so .. i cant see it'll be too hard to shift anyway as its a derv n all

    then buy your VXR when you can afford it .. and can enjoy it.

    theres no point in having a VXR if your gonna be always looking at your fuel level
