Already been thinking about this for a year or so; the moment I need a different car than the Evo, my first pick will be the Audi RS6 Avant for power & room.

Tried many FWD hot hatches / coupes but the wheelspin hacked me off.
Tried a BMW 330 but couldn't trust the back end as I like flooring it mid corner / mid roundabout.
Finally happy with my A5 Quattro. Less power but more grip than an evo, suits me sir.

Range rover sport, you will keep comparing any performance car against the evo.

Its not compairing it too my evo but I'm going to need something quick
A range rover is a totally different ball game but I'm not a farmer or football player all I want to know is where people have gone after there evo
I want raw power but there will be a time when I call it a day and stop spending and sell up

Mate I've just got a e46 m3 smg and I'm loving it totally different drive I was a bit unsure of it at first with being rear wheel but now I'm getting use to it to me it feels much more planted than the evo and when you turn the traction off put it in sports mode turn the gear change up to the highest setting you no your in a real mans car

Porsche C4

So different to the evo, still quick but not stupid quick and a totally different drive, oh and the sound track of the flat6

Also with the traction off its more stable than the evo, more of a drivers car dare I say it.

Had it done from ibis white to glacier white with the wing mirrors in gloss black (to match roof) and the silver grill surround done in matt black. Waiting on the carbon rs4 door badges from Carbon Goodies.

I keep thinking what would he my next car. It's a difficult choice when the evo does, well, basically everything.

I reckon I will have a boring diesel, something really cheap to run, and then have a Westfield/ bike engined car in the garage for the weekends.....
