Calling all car guys...
 
Looking for a fun toy to drive and I have my eye on this vehicle -

http://lincoln.craigslist.org/cto/3265083616.html

It is in really good shape and was fun as hell to drive. Has anyone heard anything bad about these? Engine problems? Tranny problems? Thanks for any help.

That looks really sharp for a decade old.

Whenever I see a used high-end foreign car, all I see is expensive repair bills.

Oh, and Simply Red is an Audi nut, he might have some insight on that.

Your wife will LOVE that car.

What are you trying to accomplish by buying this car? Just a toy? track days?

Im a car guy through and through, and wouldnt lay a finger on it. If it fits your style, so be it.

Just know that they are pain in the ass and expensive to fix if they break, and generally, I would put them in the sub par quality group. They can be fast, but your always going to have FAR better dollar/performance from a myriad of other platforms.

For 10 grand you can get stuff like modified subarus, motor swapped or big horse turbo 240s, big nitrous f-bodys, swapped or rotary FC rx-7s, built as all hell Foxes, and the list goes on.

All of those cars I see getting more fun, speed, and enjoyment out of.

To be honest I really love the look of the car.
