i am starting to get fed up with the coop and with the missus on my back all the time to sell it im thinking of maybe swaping it in for a newer car.
i don't really know my budget but around 7-10k
i was thinking of maybe a
s2000
330 ci although the mpg isn't great but like one i test drove
m3 not good mpg but about the same as the coop.
maybe a civic type r
teg dc2 but would this be relible
teg dc5 but i would be a strecth to afford.
i don't want stupid service repair cost but about £700-£1000 a year is ok.

other option is a decent sized engine deisel?

WHAT?! :rofl:
Seriously, I like them!
They are small, reliable, nippy, fun to drive and handle really well!
The interiors are really smart, and the fact there limited edition (500 made I think?) I think sets them apart from the whole "chav" image! :eek:
Plus the women love them! :booty:
Really cant see whats wrong with them! :drivin: :p

I had the same dilema the other month. I went for a 530D, its been chipped to 225 BHP and 500 NM.
Its quick comfortable and does 40 odd MPG!

did look at a 330d but decided it was too small

I paid just under 5k, X reg, 100k on the clock full BMW history, Leather, Satnav, TV, heated seats.

It really nice to drive, it hides it size well, on an everyday drive its not the most fun car in the world but i have not managed to get board of it yet. Its brilliant on the motorway with the cruise on.

Servicing so far has been Nil, it was serviced when i bought it, but like most cars its not expensive to service if you don't use main dealer or do it yourself (which is what i plan to do). I would say its no more expensive than an Audi A4 Tdi or a MK4 Golf TDI
