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

Hi all

I've just a deposit down today! on a new CActus Flair 130. I'm handing back a SEAT Leon 1.4 FSi. It;s been very competent and is essentially a bigger, cheaper and more stylish VW Golf. But the ride and cabin noise were poor - two areas Im hoping the Cactus will excel. I went for the Cactus after having one on hire when on hoiday in Italy and loved it. So i hope the affair lasts! There are way too many black or grey German boxes on the roads so wanted something more individua and a bit left field.
2019 Cactus Flair 130 s/s, Pearl White with city pack.

I had a Saab 2ltr auto convertible. Tax was 580 renewal so I thought it was time to change. I also cracked the front bumper getting to a fishing spot.

I had a DS3 which I loved, but it was small and two doors just wasn't practical. Ive had the cactus 7 months now and have just about got used to it.
