I was just about to start my thread saying i sold her lol but dont know whether to be happy or sad.
Sad that shes gone but happy as i sold her for £10k and i paid £10500 14 months ago so 500 depreciation in the recession - i think i did pretty well.
I wasnt really planning on selling but i thought for the right price, i would let her go.
Anyways, onwards and upwards! but Im torn now on what car to go for...
Shortlist (well, not very short) is Golf Mk5 GTI, Audi A4 Cab 2.0T Sline, Audi A3 2.0T FSI Sline(06+ shape), Integra Type R DC5, My Aunts 2001 TT 225 (get family rates on that too) but i seem to be really attracted to the Astra VXR in Arden Blue (knowing i can get really good servicing rates from Dougall doesnt help either) lol
And no Steve, Im not leaving you guys!! I sold my mk4 2 years ago and still hang about on uk-mkivs and doubt I'll leave here as i really like the atmosphere and you guys are awesome! And we still have the TT in the family so even if i wanted to leave, i couldnt lol
Dougall - have you got any Astras in Arden Blue at your dealership? Might go test drive one tommorrow! Its not too bad on insurance either - Im 19 and its £1800 fully comp with me as the main driver!
Glad you got it sold mate! Those VXR's are supposed to be a bugger with understeer. Id have the GTI.........or TT!! lol
[/quote] I wanted a GTI before i bough the A3 but wasnt too impressed on the build quality so went for the Audi but thats why Im considering the A3 2.0T. My mates selling one in lava grey with 19" RS4 wheels, LCR lip, HnR springs, 2006, Everysingle extra inc satnav and its a quattro.
But dont know yet - just going to take my time. But it has to be petrol and manual - i missed my clutch and high revving cars lol
Think the vxr's look awsome but same here mate has one in red and handles shocking and wasnt that impressed with speed or power with kid i work with bought the corsa one i thought this is going to be a quick car especially when he had it mapped but it was only about as quick as my mapped 150gttdi,get an RS4 or GTR or 911GT3RS and get me one aswell and i will pay you up in no time
And not driven a vxr yet - there is none within 40miles of me :S
My uncle has a zafira gsi (similar engine to the vxr) and that is bloody quick for a 7 seater. i had a short drag in it with my a3 and we were side by side... It's what really made me want to get one :S
They're meant to handle ok - just a lot of tourqe steer (so when i want to go left, i just floor it )
Gav - Why does your cousin hate his. I've hear nothing but good things about them tbh....
