why is that adam? a loan to get a new car or second hand?

True, its fucking hard. i dont like looking for a car lol.

and just to reiterate, i will not be going off my car. ive been asked many times by family members if i will be selling fifi... this will not be happening. It will be by fun, weekend car. and it will be a hobby that will stay with me for as long as possible :)

it looks like a fanny car, however a good point is that it does 74mpg! better?

well finance is an arse - a loan would be better to buy new/used as you can save up and pay it off early ;)

2005 Audi A3 2.0 Tdi would suit you ;)

mmm an audi. What dreams are made of. But i legitimately want to know the reason why finance is an arse. I know you had issues with your st but was there a particular reason?

well you are tied to it for the duration, interest is usually shite, and it's not your car until it is paid off so you can't sell it

True. I'm looking at deals with 0% interest. But the range of cars isn't great. Looking at kia rio's and fiat 500's. What sort of money are 2005 audi a3's going for?

My point is, do you believe that!

Terry cousin had one of the new ones. Admittedly he drives like a bell, but there's no way that thing would do over 50mpg.
Even on a run (which going on your mileage stated in the first post, you'll be doing) the thing spins so quick it drinks and makes a horrible racket!!

So i'm guessing diesel is my best bet? Which i wanted to go for anyway.

The main reason i want finance, as stated, is for the warranty, service and MOT you get with some of them.

Dont get fibance or a loan, there are many cheap cars that are reliable.

This car isgonna be your run around, if I was toget finance Id want a car that wasworth having that monthly payment hanging ovwr your head.

A 2008 c1/107 is dirt cheap and it will be cheap to run (although it will make you question your sexuality).

If I was you id spend £1k on a diesel polo/golf.

Finsnce always sounds good on paper but when your tied to it for ages youll wonderwhy the hell yourpaying all that for a slow arse car. You can get good economy and power for an achievable price.
