    Must have been a world of difference going from an entry level hatchback to a premium executive sedan class of car.
    It certainly was, Alfissti. It was a wonderful and necessary upgrade!

    My house mate changed his Polo to a 318i. Obviously, I couldn't let him have the best car in the house haha

    Also, because I've started driving so much in the past year. The Fiesta was drinking fuel on motorway journeys. £50+ to get to Cardiff from Egham (Uni house) and back was a bit too steep!

    20-25 miles, much more choice in London.

    Hour away / 50 miles.

    The car was delivered to my house on the back of a trailer as it had no MOT. That and I was 16 so I wasn't driving it home...

    I did take it for a cheeky spin round the block long before I ever had a driving lesson, though. I spent about an hour over a period of a couple of weeks when the parents were out working out clutch control by moving it backward and forward on the drive at slow speed.
