    I sold my 2018 Mustang GT and I have been looking around for my next "sports" car. I want AWD, automatic, and four doors. I can't keep a car stock, so I don't want a car that is going to be fuel limited by having only direct injection either.

    I have my eyes set on a used 2017-2019 Audi RS3. However, I would like to open myself up to suggestions from you guys.

    Edit: This may be limiting, but I am currently looking at around $45k for my budget.

    If you can find an RS3 in your budget i would think there are very few cars if any that would be as fun as that while having 4 doors and AWD. While not in the same league, a KIA Stinger would likely cost quite a bit less and they seem fun as well.

    if you want AWD and want to mod for high horse, I would say Mitsu Evo or Subie. the modding scene for audi is probably minute.

    Or a Genesis G70 3.3T Sport. ;) A tad less rear seat space, but lighter than the Stinger and more premium design/materials.

    I would not trust a factory 6.4 lower with boost. Challenger talk is littered with threads of guys blowing these up on 6lbs. You will have to swap pistons and rods for forged if you want to do it right but then you will have to start worrying about trans.

    Swappety swap time. No pain no gain when it comes to going fast AWD. :D

    Stinger is a poor mans RS7. Stock they are neck and neck with a 5.0 and if you throw a tune into them they good for 425 at the wheel IIRC.

    My next newer fun car will be a Chevy SS.
    4 doors and Ls3. Cam, exhaust, intake, tune and a stall and it would be a fun daily.
