    You must be very popular.

    How anyone can post that amazing video review and still want a boring as 318 with no spec to name of I don't know.

    You get so much for your money with the GT86.
    because it's important for me to have room for more than 1 passenger

    the video clearly shows there's no room for any real passengers

    not to mention, just checked and not surprisingly the insurance for an under 25 with a 200bhp car is 8,000 ...

    Insurance will be cheaper from a performance broker rather than on a comparison site.

    I have a 2 seater sports car and have had it for the last 4 years. I can count on 1 hand the number of times I have thought I needed 1 more seat or more room over a car that is fun to drive and rewarding.

    For 25k, you asked what the best car is, it's a gt86.

    I have a Toyota celica with quite frankly even less rear seat room than the gt86 and I still manage to get one person in the front and one in the rear(can't have anyone behind me as I'm 6.1 and need all the leg room). I think you would be surprised at what you can get in the back of cars like the gt86 and you may be pleasantly surprised

    3 months? Central London!

    Who would buy and drive a brand new car with that little experience in the middle of London where a lot is happening and no one gives a **** about your car.

    You mad.

    No disrespect, but just saying 911 is like me saying I can get a quote for a "golf". They vary so massively that it's not comparable.

    If you are talking about classic insurance on an older, slower car it's meaningless.

    Have you tried performance car specialists? The tiny companies that act as brokers in the back of car magazines?

    They are usually better than the mainstream

    Except the sweaty South African bloke who loaded it onto the RORO vessel and all the guys in between till you take delivery of it..

    Pretty sure at least 10 persons would have driven it before you but enjoy the new car anyway

    p/s: It won't be surprising me if someone else test drove that car before you as well

    I'm aware it doesn't exactly park itself from germany to uk

    but you are being rather pedantic, I can't avoid any new car being driven say 10km or so

    I can avoid a year of use by purchasing new

    if that wasn't clear ..
