  3. Bollox. Mk 1 TT is a great car and those that can’t see that are either blinkered or lacking in confidence of their own sexuality/ gender. Less than 2k to get a nice example, quick but safe - grip from all 4 wheels makes such a difference. May not suit all tastes, but certainly not a “girl’s car”.

    In a similar situation although current car worth virtually nothing. Was looking at r32 golfs but tax is£550 a year apparently
    Would be rather steep for doing 6k miles

    Nowt wrong with the Seat Leon ive had two & wouldnt go past them...
    Poor mans Audi maybes but when the current one i have is based on GolfMk7 or in fact its 90% a GTD Golf mk7 there is little to beat them.
    features n spec wise. 55mpg 180 odd horses & £20 roadtax i'll be keeping it a long time me thinks.
    The Skoda is still the most under rated Car from the VAG stable...
    If only SEAT could release there version of the VW's Amorak at sensible £££ id buy one.

  8. To be honest it might be worth looking at a hybrid of some kind, Lexus make some nice ones, you could do the daily commute on electric.

    I've been thinking of buying a Lexus Rx 450h or Is 300h. Yes they're completely different cars but i quite like the looks of both. Or maybe i buy another Mercedes, W205 would be natural choice since i've a W204 right now.

    Has anyone mentioned Subaru's?
    Had a few here now and I still keep buying them! You could spend half your budget on the best pre '05 Outback with the 3.0L H6 engine. Amazing tools IMO. Proper 245hp Q car. V comfortable and a properly reliable car - I have always avoided the 2.5L cars re head gasket issues. Easy and cheap to service too. Maybe not the 'coolest' thing out there.....!
    Or a good WRX impreza - literally the best fast all weather car ever built.

    Dunno why but I always wanted a Mitsubishi evo,I still look occasionally and if the right one comes along who knows,just has to be the right colour and have the right wheels on it

    am I the only one that sort of fancies a Octavia vxr, are they all awd. might be step down from a disco 3 but surely even a petrol one would be better on fuel
