    A Z3 does not rev out to 9000RPM stock on a 2L engine, 9500RPM if you tweak it and are a tad crazy



    I am currently looking for another car as I have used up my Vectra, I have yet to find anything in my price range, in a manual of that size that does not handle like a barge or a coffin. I still have a rubbish car as I can't find a better one

    I am waaaay past revving anything up to 9500 or even 9000.

    I want to drive round in a car I like the look of, a car that I can drive with the top down and a car that I've not had before. I've had a 'Hot Hatch', a ****-off big limousine, a coupe and a few 'family' saloons. Never had a two-seater, roadster or sports-car (whatever you wanna call them). Ideally, I'd like a single-seater, then I can't give anyone a lift, I can't ferry the grandkids about and it's pointless of people to ask me to run errands for them.

    Best move I ever made. No lifts anywhere, no "can you pick us up from the pub", no "fancy helping me move this large piece of furniture"...

    DO IT!!

    That's actually quite reasonable. Peugeot charge £80 +VAT for theirs.

    Well let's see.

    29, and until recently had an 60-reg toyota iQ until I decided to sell it, trading it for an annual season ticket travel card and a small wodge of cash.

    Now I never get asked for lifts, don't have to worry about petrol, insurance or servicing, can mostly travel for free (unless I'm going outside zone 6) and can read or nap while travelling (unless I'm cycling, obviously).

    Bit of a pang when I got rid of it, but I feel so much better now.

    Heavily subsidised?

    Are you aware of what an annual season ticket in London costs? If it's subsidised, it's not so much that any normal user would notice.

    Can I argue that cars are great if you don't live in the south east and your roads are heavily subsidised by non-drivers?

    I'm sensing you like Landrover's, if I could afford it I'd try a Disco 3 or a Defender.

    bus/rail cards arnt cheap up here. Last time i used a bus it cost about £5 to go to town and back. £10 on a oyster and i did many more miles and still have loads left

    MetroCard - bus travel and rail zones 1-5 | MetroCard | Metro £35 a week for west yorkshire and nothing like the service of the underground

    £57.40 for a weekly season ticket for me, purely between home and work without any travelcard benefits. It's not cheap anywhere.

    There was a reason I only bought an annual one after selling the car.

    Tidy..

    The 220 has a good powerplant. Hopefully your Mono will be more enjoyable than mine.

    My mechanic says he has something to try that may well improve my TDCI running.


    Still thinking of a 3.0 S-Type which is the same basic engine as the 220 but installed in the correct orientation

    TT
