I loved my Ascot green E34 520i SE but it did bugger all to the gallon!
I have replaced it with a 1996 Astra 1.4LS and I am very happy with it.
My dad has offered to give me his 57 plate Hyundai Tucson, but I have decided to decline his generous offer as old bangers are more fun!
I'm not a lover of 4X4s especially pseudo diesel powered ones.

Mine was underpowered but it had a manual transmission.
Getting stuck in rush hour traffic everyday didn't really help matters.
Cheers,
Ian

Yep that's fair enough Ian especially as the price of petrol has gone through the roof. I am running a Saab 9000 which has done 140K now and just brought me back from London in one piece.

Well,
I drove my Beemer again, for the last time, on Saturday before the new owner came to collect it.
It felt like a boat and very sloppy. It needed some suspension bushes and possibly dampers all round.
My Astra is still tight, it has reams of paperwork and the suspension has been treated to springs and dampers during the past 3 years.
I'm going to give it a full service on Friday!

Cheers,
Ian

Glad that you are happy Ian and I think the Astra 3 is a great car with bags of room inside. You will have that for the long haul....all the best J
