Keeping The Lancer GT or Audi A6 2.0T

  1. Lancer GT - It's battle scarred but still refuse to kick the bucket

    54.5%
  2. Audi A6 - Time to tune it down a little and go softer path

    45.5%

    I voted for the Audi.
    Not coz the brand perception but i just like everything abt good old european car.....except the maintenance.

    Nothing against the Lanspira except the gearbox.

    This only means the car hasn't truly start breaking down yet. Even before one can make a decision, I suggest you go find out the parts pricing first.

    A6 also CVT ... In fact, i think up until 2016, Audi still using CVTs in A4, A5 and A6.

    That is the thing, i can con9lan7firm A6 spare parts will not be economic. Even the goddamn water pump is MY1.5K includes labour. And this one is a direct injection engine, known to have carbon build up issue. So what's your vote ?

    Since you said the Lancer only had cosmetic panel damages during accidents, so I have voted for it. I never fancy Audi much anyway.

    Later once you're closing on 50, you might get your midlife crisis itch for less reasonable cars! Lol

    I already had my midlife crisis and made my midlife crisis mistake with my old e36 1jz. Spent unreasonable amounts on a car that couldn't live up to my expectations within the budget I had. Biggest mistake of my life.

    It's not a crisis until you buy it. Right now it's nothing more than a want.

    You might get that itch back to make it a happy ending instead of a mistake. Lol

    You've got your head screwed on straight. The priorities and stuff are all in place. Hence the reason why you haven't bought that Lotus. I believe you can if you wanted.

    That only will happen when I have money. Right now scraping through every month is no fun
