Seriously, I won't take *quite* that long but I'm trying to fund a mortgage deposit and a wedding too, so they take priority. smile

When the time comes to replace my trusty FWD hatch, I might go for a... trusty FWD estate?



I think Ford are shrewd with this one. People are still downsizing cars and I think this will become the new Octavia VRS estate, if you get my gist. Fun to punt around on your own when you can, reasonable running costs, civilised and roomy enough to carry an IKEA wardrobe when you're need to.

Order one in black, debadge it and avoid unwanted attention from Yoofs or people who want to race you. (No disrespect to you, Kamil. I mean the reverse baseball cap wearing type.) wink
I'll copy you, saw my first today, an orange one in estate form, looked fantastic if a bit like a frog, so much better looking than the hatchback.

Bit of a triggers broom at the moment but well worth restoring in my opinion. smile

After recently seeing a certain PHer's purchase, I've been mostly wanting an XJR today...

Today, I have been mostly obsessing over the Audi 200. Unfortunately, there is only one for sale on car and classic, and it's in Scotland, and the gearbox is not attached to the car, as it is broken. I'm really liking old Audis at the moment for some reason 80/90/100/200/V8 mmm

They are fantastic value for money now. The cheapest one I've seen sell was at 150,000 miles, on a 53 plate for £4995.

Quite. Black paint makes the gaping mouth look less obvious.

Polo GTI. Corsa VXRs have such a chavvy image associated with them, that's a good enough reason not to buy one imo.

True. But... that zingy little engine... there's something a little tempting about them, if you can look past the image.

I reckon they look great in blue.

Having driven both, the engine is no where near as good as the 1.4 TSI in the Polo. The Polo will give decent power and instant throttle response in any gear. Coupled with the DSG gearbox it's a fantastic little package cool

I had a go in one of those last week. Seriously rapid car. Certainly a few years ago nobody would have batted an eyelid if they'd given it an RS badge.

The only thing I wasn't sold on was the torque steer - the greasy conditions and bumpy roads probably didn't help, but it was a real bicep builder.

Auto with leather interior, perfect.
