    Nope, around 60k mileage.

    Apparently, that one is the only suitable one available in black anywhere near to where we live. :rolleyes:

    I would rather a) not buy one, or b) get one in a 'cheaper' colour.

    :mad:

    Who the hell drives cars that are 7 years old ffs.
    Alot of people drive 7 year old cars. Unfortunately, unless your car is a Clio Sport with a 2.0 engine, your parents have paid a high price.

    Similar thing happened to me.

    My dad bought my a BMW Z4 in the wrong colour. I wanted black and I got blue. I was furious. He paid for it htough so not too bad.
    thats actually hilarious, you got a Z4 for free and your actually complaining

    well i got a 7 year old car because its my first one, i didnt want it too old, but i didnt want a really new one because of my insurance, plus if i splashed all my cash on my first car (which will maybe get knocked about a little bit though i hope not) and it was brand new, id be heartbroken if it was brand new and i banged it...though i love my car now so id still be heartbroken now!

    My car is 31 years old...
    Mine is 44 years old, and I'd certainly call it an improvement over a Ford Fiesta based Mazda

    But you wouldn't have bought it as a 'improvment' on for a P reg Mazda 121 would you?

    The deposit is paid, I am selling my car ^ for £300 to the same garage, so that leaves me to stump up £3000 for a 2002 car.

    Well since your previous car was a P reg I'm assuming you do? :dontknow:

    Depends on what Clio it is, for instance the average dealer price for an 02 reg 1.5 Dci is about £3,100. Go here and have a look.

    Question: Why are your parents buying a car with (effectively) your money, yet you don't seem to have been consulted? Why didn't you just go and buy one you liked?

    Mine was a £3k Red 2003 VW polo 1.2l 50k miles and will have a good resale price compared to other makes in 2-3 years. I feel for you they could have done much better.

    The deposit has been paid, and a contract signed with the garage. lol, no going back on the agreement now. Oh well. Horrible thing is, my insurance needs to be paid this month too. I now officially have no money. :mad:

    Who drives cars tht are 7 years old?!?!?!?! LMAOO thats not "old" at all, anyone who buys a brand new car is stupid because as soon as you drive it out of the showroom it will start depreciating rapidly, and you will eventually lose soo much money, so its common sense to buy an older car!
