It was more realistic for me to go for the M40, I sort of still wish I did, but i'll persevere with this for now.

Anyone ever owned a Smart ForTwo?
Need to pick up a car for my girlfriend's 7 mile commute.
They aren't rated in the motoring press but parking is a nightmare on our road so it would make sense for us.

You're probably right. VW Up maybe.

As if they’re the same price as a Golf

Was in same position and got a mini cooper s. She loves it and I quite like driving it too. Pricey when they go wrong though but seems to be holding its value….she reckons she wouldn’t want to drive anything smaller or girlier cause blokes on the roads are dicks (and she’s right - I run girls in 500s right off the road)

What's pricey? Scrap parts must be plentiful.

Spend a few k extra and get a Porsche.
What about a Fiat 500? Or wait for the electric Mini.

Can't afford a second Porsche

We got an auto/tiptronic and the gearbox was screwed. Apparently a common fault on 2005 era minis.
I looked up errrrrting and they seemed pretty bulletproof….then when this hit found loads on it. Been good apart from that though

Just get a Fiat 500/Ford ka or Toyota Aygo/Peugeot/Citroen if you’re not arsed about looks or how it drives. Both cheap as chips to buy and maintain. Could get one with cheap tax and would be cheap to insure aswell.

Just get her some roller skates and a target for her back.
Anyway 911 ftw

Any Jag owners on here? Seen a spicy 5 litre supercharged XFR I quite like the look of for decent money. MPG is soul destroying but don't do too many miles for work and the wifey has a SUV to ferry the kids about and holidays etc.

Will a pcp collection on a bmw with nails in 2 Tyres take the car ? Don’t want to spend £500 and the Hastle of getting 2 new tyres if I can help it
