due to some last night antics of some stupid joy riders smashing into my bothers other 1/2 car at 3am in morning... I have had to had over the keys for my borrowed mica as they need a car. I was getting around to wanting to buy a car, but I have had just dropped a big wedge on a house deposit. so I have a small lake of immediate funds. I'm a bit lost for what i want. I was planing to give it another year and was looking initial at something a bit pricier and quick. preferably RW drive. audi TT or A4, BMW 3 second hand lotus. etc. I want a car that fun to drive but not a boy racer car as I do a reasonable amount of business mileage, so i occasionally need to look professional. so was thinking of downgrading my horizons. If I was buying new I think I would be looking between 11-16K. was thinking fiat 500 abarth but this looks to chav. the Renault Twingo 113 looks cool and although not as fast is supposed to handle well. a hot hatch sounds like a good idea. I'm open to options. was also contemplating the idea of leasing a car, but don't know if this is actually a viable option.
