Okay, my mk5 R is getting on towards 70000 miles and I've recently taken a job whereby I could afford something more expensive if I wanted to but the problem is is that theres not actually much out there for <50k that I like.

Looked at the BMW 1 series (135i) but the girlfriend bought one so thats out. Looked at the new S3 and whilst I like the interior, I think the old one looked better. MK7 Golf doesnt do anything for me but that might change when the R comes out but doubt it,

Currently leaning towards a TTRS or RS5.

Other option is to get an A3 diesel or something for day to day and 'retire' the R32 to weekends.

Does it need to be Brand new? If not there are a truck load of cars for under 50k, an R8, a DB9 and the C63 AMG for example.

I had my mk5 R32 for nearly four years, and loved every minute of it....
The performance, handling and noise was awesome.

Last week it was time for an upgrade!

Bought a Mk6 Golf R, 5 door in candy white, dsg, full leather with upgraded 19" alloys and every extra going....
It really is amazing....

The problem is a cant stop cleaning it, even the kids are digging me out now... Lol!

Nice list, I'd say you'd struggle on the 430 and R8 V10. But £50k would buy a nice 360 or R8 V8

I'm thinking RS5 next for me , even though it will be slower than my current car.

It is a nice problem to have!! that budget will get you some nice wheels, but it is something only you can decide on.

You might get a a few month old RS4 for that money.
