Agree with the 'sell' people. South Ken's got major transport links running through it, be it the bus (traditional red double deckers and all) or the tube (traditional...tramps?) and if you do bring your car, you probably wouldn't be able to park it anywhere near your house unless you get a permit, it'll be a big faff with the whole left/right hand drive thing and you'd probably end up eating up more precious money on our extortionate petrol prices whilst you sit in traffic in central london. (Although, saying that... you have a BMW, so I'm guessing money isn't reeeeeeeeeally a problem lol)

Yes that is quite a good car. My dad has the new BMW 645 coupe and that is quite good, much better than the horrible 745

I have to say it would be the Porsche Cayenne for a nice off-roader and a Porsche 996.. I love the Hummer H2 and the VW Touareg.
What about yours?

mmm, that's a tough call. I definitely love the astin martins and of course the power and speed behing a ferrari or lambourghini are always nice. I also like a sleek black lotus

I have seen the Koenigsegg CCR (world's fastest legal car) it is amazing I'm not a huge lambo fan, got to love the V12 Vanquish though, even classics like the DB5 are good. What are you studying in South Ken?

nothing actually in south ken. I'll either be attending lse or kings for law. I'm moving sometime within the next month and south ken is one of my top prospects for location. any other suggestions?

My aunt is in Fulham which is definitely a nice place. Chelsea is good, Wimbledon is only further out but it is definitely a nice area if you dont mind the slightly longer distance. If you don't mind living in the American version of suburbs come to Surrey, a county south of London. Most of those that work in finance in the City of London live in Surrey and commute into the capital

oh GOD no not the cayenne. it looks like, and has the offroad premise of a rollerskate

;_;
Sorry but you are wrong and it can handle the rough terrains of Surrey quite well

Save the world, buy a bike! It's free, often quicker, and you'll burn millions of calories.
There's not enough people cycling the more people who drive, the fewer people will be willing to cycle.

Sell it and wait till you get here. Its very expensive to keep a car in London and the public transport is pretty good.
Public transport is bloody expensive!

I thought of another advantage to cycling - you get to cut in front of the traffic light queue and p*ss everyone else off (should you wish to, i always worry the car behind will take revenge and drive over me.)

Yes. If i could be bothered, I'd work out how many bus journeys are equivalent to a used car. Probably about 100.

A BMW 740? If you're under 25 you're going to have serious problems insuring that beast, over here we consider 1.6 litre engines big, in the city most people drive 1.2 litre superminis, in central London only mad people drive, we have a very good train network, probably some of the best bus networks in the world.

Being a student having a car in a city like London will be a hinderence, and as I said you can't afford a BMW 740 in this country unless you're rich. Petrol (or oil as you lot call it) is also very expensive over here compared to the states.

Costs me £340 a year and I can get anywhere in the entire county of Greater Manchester (a reach of 2.5 million people) with my ticket. The buses are every two minutes or better, and it takes you right into the city centre. By car you have to park which costs £3 an hour and you can't find a place even then. In cities bus travel is far much easier than driving.

A car would cost me at least £3000 a year. Erm.
