    A lot to ask i know, this is for my GF im bugging her to sell her Hyundai Getz (not so bad cars!) as its pushing 2 years and is gonna plummit in value soon. Currently shes looking at 2.0l 16v Hyundai coupes but this could be just brand loyalty.

    Give me some alternatives (pics if poss to show her!)

    Cheers guys

    xara is 'old shape as shed put it'
    Beemer would be going back to 'old shapes' again
    Clio would be a bit along similar lines
    MondeoST is a possible

    old shapes? Eh? An 01 Xsara is the facelift model, personally I find it as ugly as sin but I'm not sure what the old shape thing is about.

    I will never understand girls and cars. My friend told me today, when I pointed out a 530i that drove past, that it 'looks just like your car tho' :confused:

    To the female mind it does..

    You have three types of cars; red cars, blue cars, other cars.

    Hyundai coupe is ugly
    Alfa's are unreliable.

    And then the choice between the BMW and the Fiat. I'd go BMW. She not like the Boxter then?

    You want to get the Mondeo ST200, you'll find you can wonder off for totally aimless but ENORMOUSLY enjoyable drives from time to time which are VERY fun packed :D :D

    Thats all I've done recently since having mine, after every time I return home i'm grinning from ear to ear and just want to go again!

    yes that is ugly
    those lights are terrible as is the bonnet that follows their line.
    the whole flow of the car is grim tbh.
