BMW 335i convertible. Heart attack speed but heart attack insurance, road tax and MPG into the bargain. Now I'm on a third insurance, zero road tax and 55mpg.....what's to not like?

Renault 5 (not a nioce experience when the alternator dies in the fast lane of the 4 lane stretch of the M6 near J20)
Fiat Punto
Vauxhall Meriva
Ford CMax
Chevrolet Spark

The boss has Nissan Note and then Peugeot 2008 on lease (which she hated) but we both wanted new cars so we both chopped our cars in together for the sums to work.

She walked out with a 17 plate Fiat 500 (she's been after one for ages and would have got one when we got the 2008 but we needed a family car) and I walked out with an 18 Plate Cactus in Silver with Black Airbumps.

Done a couple of long trips (time wise) to the Lakes - drives better than any of my other cars and far more comfortable.

Taking it to France next year so we will see how it goes on the long haul.

Fiat 500c.
Felt I needed something a little bit more 'grown up' and larger in space. Much more comfortable ride and fuel efficient :P
