    ok now, if your going to spend 10k on a beater and get an A4 plan on spending more on repairs... audis are notorious for having mechanical problems, so if you looking for a smart investment, go with the three most reliable cars Toyota (lexus) nissan(infiniti) or honda (acura) personally i would go with a maxima or an accord. they may lack some cosmetic pizazz, but it will get you around for 10k and nothing more....

    for $10k... you can buy like 3 cavaliers. Alternate and drive a different one each day and they will last forever. Of course, they would still be Cavaliers. :)

    You can get a 4th gen Maxima for under 10K. Plenty of power and if you want more, the aftermarket is there. VQ engine is good for 200K miles and more as long as you properly maintain it.
