    Bargain at the scrapyard, my local seems intent on ripping everyone off !

    Dunno if your a fan of top gear, but i certainly remember Vitara's from Richard Hammonds effort a few years back on the Police car challenge!

    @APearce - yours a diesel?

    I'm on first name terms at the petrol station!!

    Tracks are near bham footy club - but the '5-0' set little traps and confiscate your mota if you drive more than 25mph my bros and cousin are one of them (5-0 that is)

    I replaced my ageing Ford Puma with a 54plate Seat Leon Curpa TDi in black. It's fantastic to drive and a hell of a lot more economical. I'm now filling up twice a month, rather than 4 times.

    Also, just checked road tax change in April
    Puma would have been £205
    Leon is £125

    Is the 2.0TDi 190? Thought that was the 2.7? Nice interior spec though, an electronic handbrake would confuse the hell out of me though!

    Alex its a diesel VAG it will be fine, I drove with mine (not that Audi, soooo fancy stealing your Audi now mmmmm but I should be sensible and get a 4x4 this time so I can get to work in the snow....) on for 4 days then chickened out and filled up, glad I did as I put 54ltrs in and its only a 55ltr tank so that was a good move! Wouldn't chance it that tight again, but my local garage had sold out of Diesel the silly people never mind 150bhp of fun and 60mpg can't argue with that

    Nice, make sure you wear lightweight shoes or get a snooper as you will easily find yourself speeding in that
