Well i'm wanting to get my own place and i'm seriously thinking of getting rid of the Audi it's costing to much to run with taxes going up and petrol prices continuly going up plus getting it serviced. so thinking off getting something smaller thats cheaper to tax and petrol.

Was thinking of getting a toyota yaris t sport. not bad on petrol 41mpg and cheaper tax only being a 1500. Has anyone had any experience with them or can think or anythink different.

only want to spend 4k but have more if needed.

The Yaris is bullet proof apparently. insurers love it, and I'm sure parkers state it's in the high 40's MPG wise!

You're best of test driving one at Toyota, though apparently they are quite funky and fun to drive, and the chassis design is supposed to be quite good for a small car.

Remember tax is down to the emissions, not the engine size!

I love Lupo GTi's. quick too. decent mpg. small and quite dub.

Polo GTi is great, and the added fact that you can get the GT-TDi I think.

The only problem is the lupo is very tiny. Enough for the weekly shopping but not much more.

Cracking cars though I hear they have transmission problems :?

lupo gti's look awesome, only drawback for me would be parts for them as they didn't do many gti's did they?
