JP's car - I Ignored the Advice and Bought What I'd Already Decided on


#21

A mate had one (520d) last week as a loaner while his 3 was in the garage. It was smooth, pulled well on the motorway and was quiet. Really nice car.


#22

Astra mk3 estate

The official car of the Scalford hi fi show 9 years running.


#23

All good stories start with that.


#24

Audi for me.

From your shortlist I would take the BMW.


#25

Mazda RX-8.


#26

Not tried one yet. Will sniff one out.


#27

BMW is more interesting to drive, but get the M-Sport version as the non-M-Sport is floppy and sluggish.

My personal choice would be the Merc, as I prefer Mercs, they are more comfortable, bigger inside, quieter, dealers are better and have more gadgets. The BMW will be more economical, I am getting 48mpg on my C220 Estate, where as my old 320d got 51MPG. You will arrive less stressed in a Merc.

Audi, yeah right, A6 pants.

I really liked the Volvo XC60 I drove recently, nice car. But obviously a very complicated seat adjuster that only a few can handle :laughing:


#28

People will let you out of junctions in a Merc :+1:


#29

An old Lexus.


#30

Buy an Alfa Guilia


#31

It would be an offence to Alfas to turn up to a golfist establishment in one.


#32

He’s not made of money you know!

New drugs not working then? :upside_down_face:

You do know that’s just a glorified trim level now?


#33

Nope :crazy_face:


#34

Lol


#35

Different suspension and steering.


#36

Well spotted - rougher ride and twitchier handling too, but no extra grunt. Bargain :ok_hand:


#37

If you get the adaptive suspension (mandatory, IMO) then there the same.


#38

Have you tried asking for more sexual intercourse?


#39

Thanks, Pot :+1:
