    Ah nice one!

    Golfs are nice although not my sort of car.
    The Audi is a nice choice. I like Audi's. Theyre really expensive though (for a new one anyway).

    A 1999 Toyota Yaris with almost 130k on the clock.

    Had it since I was 16, learnt to drive in it, passed my test in it, etc. On paper it's nothing special, but I've not had any issues with it in my five years of owning it. A once a year service keeps it ticking over fine.
    Not going to upgrade as I'm moving to London in the summer and probably won't need a car. I'll miss my little runaround

    Its a nice car. Its a special car to you. Youve acheived a lot in it.
    There you go, you chose wisely if youve had no issues with it.

    Ah ok. Driving in London would suck. Theres so much traffic there and it takes ages to get anywhere.

    I suppose for a first car a golf would be okay. And Audis are so cool, its a shame they cost so much!!
    What would your dream car be?

    An that's fair enough. I hate paying for petrol but I like driving manuals though.

    A golf for a first car is really good. I looked into them but couldn't afford the insurance on it.
    Indeed. My favourite Audi costs £100,000 new!

    My dream car currently is a Mazda RX7. I absolutely love those things.
    What would yours be?

    I used to drive a manual car, until my clutch failed on the motorway and I got really spooked by it. I do quite a lot of city driving with steep hills so automatic is just so much easier for me

    Yeah theyre pretty safe to drive, also quite reliable and cheap to run (for like a 1.8) The insurance is massive!
    Really? Which one is it? An R8?

    Theyre lovely cars actually, they look so cool too!
    Hmmm, I don't really know.... I quite like the Aston Martin DB7 actually.... or if I'm really pushing the boat out the Jaguar F-Type!

    Yikes that's not good. I can understand you being spooked by it.
    Ah fair enough. Using a manual on a hill is a nightmare, especially when doing hill starts.
    That makes sense
