the TT cab is foul in comparison to the coupe, 2 seater rag tops are just for gays imo.

My mate was saying it cost him about £10 to go from Birmingham from Stafford :S he has a 1.4 clio. Im trying to convince myself that public transport is cheaper.

When you factor in insurance, tyres, servicing depreciation, public transport will be cheaper.

But cars are a lot more comfortable, bang on the CD player, cruise along, go where ever you want to, pick up mates etc… you also don't have to worry about some youts playing shit neyo/akon songs on their phones, you also don't stuck sat next to some old bint who stinks of piss, or someone sneezing/coughing on the back of your neck

fuck i hate public transport!

Cheers for all the comments fukkers Cool

Just how I like my women… on a side note, think it'll be taking the piss if I take this to the Poles/Albanians like this?

I thought I would end up just giving everyone lifts so I thought a car would a be a bad idea. Chopstickz get it down to them, personal tip, take them some old clothes, they love it.

depends where you live though…

I know some people who are at manc who have to catch the bus to lectures everyday….whereas for me its a 15 minute walk

also depends on parking

also depends on if you are a lazy cunt


what did you use yours for most at uni?

I can see people trying to get lifts everywhere if you had a car at uni, although I'd turn into a minicab for mates Laughing out loud
Chopstickz, i'll take it to them like that, it is a bit of a piss take, but its their job, most of it will come off with a power washer anyway doggg

I played football at home and came back to watch the boro every other weekend, so if not just for that it was extremely useful. I could have walked into uni from where i lived in Leeds, but it would've taken me about 30 minutes. it also helps when you need to nip into town. It's just convinient really.
