10k for your ranger was a good deal. A buddy I went to school with traded in his 2008 f150 4x4, 4 door, with only 76k on it and only got 9k for it last month so you did great.

Audi's are nice and 17k for that was a pretty good deal. Only high horse fwd car I drove was a Srt4 level 3. It did not torque steer much at all. A good set of tires will help out alot. Rwd is kind of different for me. My problem in my RX7 is not steering, but keeping the tail end behind me. But it seems like a good car, I wouldn't mind driving one and seeing what a Audi is all about.

Nice car. But come on can't use the excuse "i need to save money on gas because i'm driving 140 miles round trip to school." LOL. I'm sure going out and spending 7k on a newer car will be much cheaper then gas for a all the mods you plan on doing this month will probably amount to another 2k.

I'm not hating...just saying thats a lame excuse. You got rid of the Ranger because you got sick of it and wanted a fast car. With that being said, more power to you. Not like I needed to buy my Ranger with my Bronco already there...I just bought it and spent the extra money because I wanted a Ranger. LOL

But seriously, that looks like a nice car. I personally have never had first hand experience with Audi's, but I have heard they are full of problems. At least the older ones. Both my sisters have mid 2000's VW Beetles, 1.8L Turbos, and they have countless problems all the time. Plus it will be way more expensive to fix an Audi when it breaks then it would be to fix the Ranger. Thats a fact.

Also, 10k for your Ranger was a killer deal.

$10,000 for a 2WD? Very nice!

Audis are sweet cars. I a little much in my opinion if you just needed better gas mileage. A Civic or even a downgrade to a VW would have been fine but 17k sounds reasonable.

Congrats and for some reason half of R/F is on the rag this week so ignore the haters.
