You've chosen to have white goods though, haven't you? Not as exciting as washing your clothes by hand I'm sure, but handy, no?

have you ever tried donut'in a Zanussi??

Anyone any experience of the Mazda 6? They look a decent motor and seem to be fairly economical (diesel).

Those Kia's and Hyundai's would want to come with a free balaclava, because there is no way anyone with any self respect would ever be seen driving one.

Because?

/Jim.

Because they are an absolute plague. They are the motoring equivalent of white goods and every bit as exciting as a new dish washer. Why anyone would choose to drive one is beyond me.

Ambrose what do you drive?

If you have a car allowance and looking to get a decent deal on a, lets say on a 1.6 type car, with a decent extras, where is the best place to look? I'm not a petrol head so for me any new car is nice, loved the Ford Focus i had for 3 years, might even go back to that type, but interested in something different

There is a whole new Focus coming out, but it will be couple of months before you can buy one.
A Mazda 6 would be bigger yoke.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Wouldn’t mind waiting, my current car goes back at end of June

As if to continue my recent run of bad luck, needed a new car after someone wrote off my car about 6 weeks ago. Finally decided on a second hand Audi. After much negotiation I agreed a price yesterday only for Audi to recall all A7's from the relevant period and stop their dealers selling them pending the recall.

Don't expect much sympathy on here if you've the dough to afford an audi A7.

Its not even close to new and its only because my car was written off but fair point well made

Because they are an absolute plague. They are the motoring equivalent of white goods and every bit as exciting as a new dish washer. Why anyone would choose to drive one is beyond me.

I am not sure what would constitute an exciting car, a Ford Capri or the like?

Why I chose to drive the Optima:  economy, price, comfort, spec and fallback of the warranty.  Excitement didn't was way further than the list, as is the balaclava.

Why anyone would look for excitement in someone else's choice of car is beyond me.

I think the Optima's actually a cracking looking car

That is the biggest 'my head is up my own arse' post since Fearon posted about the rental income he was getting from the house he had inherited.

I knew that gobshite Dougal would have to reply, he probably sees a 4 year old Kia with remaining manufacturers warranty as aspirational.

This isn't a willy waving contest, but Kia's like the vast majority of people that drive them are more than a little bit dull. A grey Kia might brighten Dougal up a little.

So if cars reflect personality does it mean that my robin reliant makes me a little unstable ?

Classic stuff there. What do you know about me that makes you reach that conclusion?
