A Volvo - not quite a BMW, but much better than a Corsa, Fiesta etc. Tbh better than an Audi (unless you get a 4WD RS3)

Just picked up my current German luxo-barge



Not had any decent weather to take photos with my proper camera yet but loving it so far. Big upgrade over my mk4 Golf estate and I'm glad I went with this over another B5.5 Passat. It does have an alarmingly large diesel tank though... That said it was actually slightly cheaper to insure than my Golf even though they both have the same PD130 engine. I'm guessing because the Golf was auto and this is manual and a couple of years newer.

Plus I want to go electric and so does my partner so might as well.
Out of interest, why?


As a petrolhead, I dread internal combustion engines being replaced by soulless electric motors. Even the fastest electric cars do absolutely nothing for me.

Because it's the way things are going, and soon you won't be able to buy petrol cars at all. It's a positive step for the environment, and I'd like to take that step as soon as possible. Plus, I see driving as a means to an end rather than an enjoyable experience like "petrolheads" might.

Soon? BMW said they will never stop producing ICE cars, and the government will never actually ban the sale of them in 2035, especially with the success road campaigners have had recently. Also, any ICE car which gets over 50MPG is more effecient than a Telsa Model 3 long range, and produces less carbon over it's lifetime due to EV Battery production and part shipping, so while EV's are better for the environment than older inefficent cars, even a Modern McLaren produces less waste than the most efficient EV. Also what you consider the "near future" is 15 years away, there is no EV that will last 15 years, so even if the government DID ban the sale of ICE cars in 2035, your car will be decrepid by then, and have a range of 2 meters. There is no point buying an EV yet, it will just be an expensive inconveniece. If you MUST have one, wait until 2030 or 2025 at least when batteries will be better.

But you could charge it up instantly with your 5000k a/h £1 pocket charger from UltraHalfords?
