Hello peeps, a rare excursion for me into the motors section, I just had a question. I currently have a little granny's car and I was hoping to get a car on finance quite soon. I can't exactly go throwing around 15 K on a car because I'm a student so I was looking at one of the following two. Either an Alfa Romeo MiTo. OR A BMW 1 Series. The 1 Series would obviously be second hand because I can't afford a new one. Both cars have their charms on me, the Alfa because I like the look of it, although being Italian all the electrics will probably crap out within a week of having it. Then there's the BMW which is probably very well built and nice and comfy. So I'm just asking for opinions really. Which would you people go for and why? I'm trying to get a nice small car that doesn't cost a bomb to run. But I'm aiming a little higher than the Ford's and Vauxhall's, not that there's anything wrong with them of course but they just aren't for me. Cheers in advance.
