    I am willing to spend at least £50,000 to 65,000 on a car but the G wagon is a bit to big don't you think

    If you have £60,000 spare I'm sure it won't be an issue.

    How do you have so much money to spend on a first car?!? Has it not occurred to you that as a new driver your chances of scraping it or messing it up are pretty high so you may as well pay less for a car and upgrade in a couple of years? I know 2 people who have written off their first cars within 3 months of having their license.

    I don't want to make any assumptions but I think this may well be a troll thread.
