If you were to buy a car now.... with a view to unwrapping it in 18yrs time (appreciated in value). What would you go for? Thinking sub 15k purchase price, <70k miles

Quick thoughts from me so far...

BMW M3 E46
Impreza Type R
Golf MkII
VW Corrado - https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/volkswagen/corrado/volkswagen-corrado-g60------------------1991/8061376

all standard (near standard) of course

Of the 4, I'd go for Corrado and E46 M3. I might be biased though.

The E46 simply because it's one of the greatest drivers cars ever with an engine designed by god. They will hold value because of that alone.

Corrado, rarer than the Mk2, better overall car IMO. Decent ones now very rare, I'd get a G60 myself but VR6 Storm is likely where the best future value lies.

Seen a Type R (from ScoobyClinic) on the market last week for over 15k, they seem to be appreciating quite rapidly!

M3 - Are the Imola red E46s rare?

Like black, but always preferred the red

2dr imprezas - good example, but not the colour id go for - https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/subaru/impreza-sti/grade-4-1999-impreza-2-0-wrx-sti-v5-type-r--fresh-import/6564284

daft price 21k for v6 TypeR - https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/subaru/impreza-sti/impreza-type-r-sti-v-limited-v6-spec-uk-p1-equivalent--low-original-mileage-stunning--best-available-by-far/7876417

These cars look to have more than doubled in price in the last few years
