Need a cheap diesel shitter, as my fuel costs are crucifying me at the moment, all my expendable income is going on fuelling the Golf.

Ok, know its a tall order, needs to be taxed and tested, have a turbo so can at least pull the skin off a ricepudding and cost not much more than £500. I dont mind dents etc, just not in red (evil colour) and not a Renault.

If anyone knows of one can they pm please.

Has to have a turbo or I will kill it through sheer frustration, and me and ebay dont get on, dont even have an account. Looks like the hg has gone on the golf now, damn it, can do without it.
And cheap insurance, Im about to get stung for about a grands worth of bills, insurance, gas and electric etc, am desperately looking for another job as, £100 expendable income a month isnt gonna cut it with this, stress levels rising, stupid cars.
The saab is cheap as at the moment!
Not to insure though!!! Its getting to the point where the barge will be made into many little pieces, has to be cheap on all front, yes I know im asking for a miracle :shakehead:
SO you want a cheap turbo ...........why does it need turbo if you need cheap as well?

I think you need to ask yourself which is more important.

Low insurance/running cost/Turbo big engine?
Turbo because a diesel wont pull the skin of a rice pudding and I do 600+ miles a week!! Saab is a sporty car not a family wagon, so wont be cheap. And seeing as Im only getting 35mpg in the golf I am getting ass raped and Im not liking it. Mate has a passat, had it mapped, he can still get 70mpg!!!
sorry i didn't get back to you about this i did ask my wife about what they had at work and she said all she knows of is THIS

Thats the company she works for they may have more but its looking like they aint that cheap. the puma is gone that's on the site (my wife owns it now lol)
Fingers crossed am going to look at a volvonk this evening, priced up insurance for the year, its an extra £11.63, (now I know Im getting old!!!). Thanks anyways hun, appreciate the time.
