    your next car is gonna be a............

    I take it by the fact that you're looking at something like an x5 you need a bit of space in the car? If not then you need a slap for even considering it lol but if you do.... I'd go for something like a 540i if you wanna keep it BMW, or an ST220 estate(try it it's worth it) or an alfa 159...

    I think I've been cheated!

    I feel sorry for you, to an extent but you've been told several times in this thread alone what your best option is - and in my opinion the only sensible one. Take the car back and cancel your finance agreement, you dont need any reason it's your right. A grand is a hell of alot of money...

    replacement for a Puma

    Utter mince (imo lol) To me it shouts 'i like driving' It's not hard to find opinions on the boxster, you can be guaranteed that if you pick carefully you'll have lots of fun and they arent all that expensive to maintain just needs looked after really. The jag on the other hand whilst...

    I've personalyl never been to Hurghada but (my parents) have a flat just outside Sharm. Lovely place lovely people however it is purely a tourist town so isn't 'real' Egypt so it depends what you're going for really. If it's just to relax in the sun for a couple of weeks and do some...

    Ok i definately cant afford a 20vT possibly could just get a 16vt, are these the same as the straight 16v as in the engine needs to come out for almost any work??

    I remember the older (mk4?) astra vans being quite quick, basically because there's no weight in them i think. Its kind of the boring option, if i was gonna lease a car i could get a 150 cdti astra 3 door or a 105bhp tdi golf for around the same money, and out of those two the astra wins every...

    It's Gone :o(

    You'd get a very good mk2 rev3 (the best) n/a mr2 for that kind of money. it'd be between that, the civic and a 306 gti-6 for me. If you're interested in an mr2 i'd head over to I had a turbo and loved it, considering buying a n/a now that i have no company car and dont have...

    how much coolant/flushing system

    Yep good advice, as above plus give the bottom rad hose a squeeze when you're filling with the expansion cap off, helps get rid of trapped air too

    Think someone tried to break into my car last night!

    These cars are worryingly easy to break into so if any of you guys leave anything valuable in the car, my advice is simply dont, whether its on display or not. I'm not gonna mention the method for obvious reasons but a few people on here will know what it is already, all i'll say is that it's...
