    Cant believe I missed this thread for so long!!
    I currently drive a MINI Cooper S with a few mods pushing 235bhp and 185ftlb

    Which is for sale too
    I looked at a Nissan 350z which while looking like sex on 4 wheels was going to be a real PITA for my commute to and from work so I am looking for a nice Audi TT 225 to tune up and have some fun with

    Funny you mention this as I have recently been hearing about more and more car enthusiasts getting either diag kits or just the software to hook laptops up as they have got cheaper and say it is really easy to fix a lot of things now. Diagnostic systems on most cars are great so can tell you exactly what is wrong. Ok beyond that it may get technical to fix but someone was telling me he had a problem, hooked the kit he borrowed of a friend up and it immeadiately told him that a certain fuse was gone & a few other things that needed looking at. No long diag process just the tech telling him what was needed.

    I'm 95% sure my '97 Astra is right on the borderline between OBD/ODBII, and it seems to be quirky..Tech1/2 works, but...

    Not much room or power for towing your cage behind you

    My Berlingo can not be relied upon now so we are looking at a Vauhall Zafira [very practical!]

    Spent yesterday at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, which was nice...

    Got to drive a Rover SD1 Vitesse (3.5 injected V8), which was even nicer

    Zaf? Good call. One of those moved my sofa and fridge this weekend.

    1.9TD..and the sports pack suspension is startlingly good..

    Although, the MIL has an automatic Nissan Note..and if you can overlook the "frog" eyes appearance, it's tiny but with masses of space inside..

    It took 1 Zaf, 1 Note, and several trips in the arsetrap to move everything to the new place.

    Chrysler Neon here, very cheap to buy. Parts are expensive, but so far I've only needed tyres.

    Mitsubishi Colt 1.5 DI-D. It has a reassuring amount of power there for when you feel the need to race 18 year olds in their Novas.
