I don't have a rich Mummy or Daddy, just because I like cars what made you think that? My grandad has a car worth about 1,500 quid which I have driven a few times and that makes me a spoilt rich kid does it?
I've driven a '73 911 targa, I guess that makes me a spoilt rich kid as well doesn't it?
There is a difference between being bought an expensive car by mummy and daddy, and someone letting you drive their car for a day.
many people on here are graduates, with decent salaries.
I don't own a Lexus, I clearly said my grandad has that car, and I have driven it on occasion. Considering the price in that ad was significantly less than I see people on here willing to fling at crappy euroboxes I thought I would highlight that there are other options available.
Many people on here talk about buying their euroboxes from 1k-5k. So I don't see how a 2k lexus is out of budget, and with LPG it won't be that expensive to run, and parts are cheap.
I bought myself a mondeo, that was probably cheaper to buy (paid 2000 for it) than most people on here's euroboxes, cheaper to insure, cheaper to run, better quality, more toys, comfier, bigger boot, more fun to drive, faster, more power blah blah blah blah blah. Just trying to let people know that they don't HAVE to go down the eurobox route. Give other cars a chance, what about classic cars?
Believe it or not but cars not popular with teenage/young drivers tend to be cheaper on insurance than the bog standard 1.2 hatch
Just grow up please, and don't be quick to try and poke fun at others just because they're having a bit of fun.
Like I said, that car that I recommended to the OP does everything they asked for.
Cheap to buy,
won't loose value,
will handle 250 miles a week,
efficient (sorta with the LPG)
I really don't see how a 1.25 fiesta fills those requirements as well. You're trying to compare a car that cost around £40,000 when new, to one that cost about £8000. Not in the same league. If you could then buy them for around the same price wouldn't you be just a bit tempted to go for the nicer one?
British Racing Green is a lovely colour anyway.
