    yeah but Monaros are only 2 door. If I'm spending that much it's gonna have to last. i.e be practical for future family...

    Here's one of my OLD Commodores. Only a baby (3.8l V6) 1989 VN Formula.
    It passed everything except petrol stations!

    I have a 1995 Rover 111i, 19k miles from new! Now that I have me a *well paid* IT job I might go looking for something more retro like an old avenger or an SD1

    kearton> You can get an old Vauxhall Senator Or Omega quite cheap and were based on the Holden VN Commodore.

    Or if you have some money and want a 4door monaro, how about a HSV GTS-R?

    Personal preference I just think a car like that.. well it would be rude not to have it in 3 door There are plenty of 5 doors around and they ever so slightly depreciate more than the 3 door!

    Btw consider this if you're after an R32 - GTI pisses all over it from a standing start as the R32 is heavier and they didn't whack a turbo on it!! I'd still have one though just for the sound it makes

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    I have tried for the last week not to use my back doors as it were to imagine life with a 3 door and its not gonna work, I had to fit a LJ4600 in today, i cannot imagin doing that in a 3 door, was bad enough in a 5 door when im tall and have the seat right back. So its gonna be a 5 door for me, so I will keep looking.

    I was after an R32 A for the bragging rights of having a 3.2ltr Golf and B because that Engine coupled with a Miltek stainless exhaust sounds amazing!
    But im in dilemmer land, I am a Diesel fanboy so I'm concerned bout going over to a petrol, I love racing through floods and charging at them and petrols don't like that So its big decisions.

    And before it is suggested, I am not having a MK5 GT TDI no thanks (well maybe the GT 170 TDI), the dashboard in most of the MK5's looks like it came out of something French IE a cheap nasty Peugeot, overall the MK5 range is not as nice internally as the MK4 was but the MK5 GTI has that solved and it looks the part, the plastics look nicer and it feels nicer, but its a bit annoying you have to part with 20K to get a nice interior, my last one was only about 15K new and thats got a really nice interior.

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    I agree.. Don't get me wrong mk5 GTI is an awesome car but build quality is not what it used to be. I'm not impressed with the numerous untraceable rattles I have (and the appauling VW customer service) and this will be the first and last vdub I ever own. The Mk4 build quality was far superior.

    I'm sorry but next time I'm off to the Audi garage for an RS something :twisted:

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    I'm 20 and I drive a 1996 1.8 16V Citroen Xantia LX, let the jokes and ridicule commence!

    It really does guzzle gas though, I get around 25-27Mpg town.

    Passed my test in november.
    The car was free (parents old car), but the insurance is much more than the cars worth... luckily got a loan from the bank of parents which i just finished paying off at £200 a month!

    They're not terribly awful, beautiful ride quality with that oleo-pneumatic suspension.


    The diesels were a lot more popular as you can see from your MPG

    The ride is great, just a lot of body roll if you take things a bit quick.

    I'm just waiting to have to replace the spheres or something again! Has got quite a bit of go in it though

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    I've got myself a Mini Cooper S, its nice a quick but can a right PITA on speed humps. I have to slow it right down.

    It went into BMW for a couplpe of bits over the weekend and I requested a 3 series saloon diesel for my dad to try as he's due a new car. They gave me a 325 coupe lol. It was a nice car, my mini felt quicker but it did sounds nice! It was nice to get my mini back this morning. BMW's seem to have a really long clutch, i had an X3 it was great for Ikea but the clutch just got annoying

    MK1 VW golf cabriolet, and I love it

    She's looking a bit grubby in this pic which was taken this weekend at the southern mini show (hence my mates mini beside her) but you get the idea. She's 24 years old, only 3 owners and 72,000 genuine miles!
