And as for the beater..I was thinking something along the lines of what you mentioned..an mk4, or like a b5 a4..i would LOVE a b5 s4 avant, or even a b5 a4 avant, but those are both hard to find, and a little pricier than what i want to spend...those would be ideal though..i just i just have to keep searching. and to be honest, my main concern is insurance. insurance is soooo expensive! paying the car isn't the problem...it's just having to make those huge ass monthly playments for insurance..it's almost like money being thrown away every month!!!!! prices in south florida are absurd!!!
