Car in garage...
Just dropped off my car at Ford for major service this morning.

This leads to my thinking... Should I change my car? Or not yet?

It's a Ford Focus ST170 52 reg with 103,000 miles on it. Yes I do lots of driving. I had this car for over 3 years so far. No major problems, runs very well.

My only worry is if I do decide to sell it, i will not get very good value from it due to age and high mileage. Plus car dealers are tight during this time.

But then since I don't have any issue with this car, maybe I should keep it anyway... Just that it would be nice to have a new car, eh? :D

I do like VW Golf R32, very good price on the used cars market. But insurnce group 18. Hmmm... What else are out there?

If you're planning on driving a R32 and you do a lot of miles, be prepared to spend a lot of time and money filling it up ;)

Go faster BMW 1? Or Go faster BMW3?

I've never been able to decide if the BMW1 is like the BMW3 Compact - a case of not being able to afford a real one (aka a normal 3).

I suppose you could go for a new Impreza. They're all 4wd if memory serves. Not terribly easy on the eye though.

All depends on budget :)

Well, yes. The Impreza STI looks to be sphincter tighteningly expensive. Gp 19 insurance and 25 to the gallon? Do not want.

Give me a bit of luxury anytime. Beats arriving everywhere with a sore back and a sore neck ;)

Sorry? You'll have to speak up, I can't hear you over the sound of both of my turbochargers ;)

How novel, using a sarcastic reply on the guy that first suggested it to me ;)
