Re: What's made you smile today?

Managed to knock 30 seconds off my mile and a half time for the Army. 12:50 now, another 2 minutes 20 to knock off!

Also, new car is such fun - though it is a bit annoying how sluggish it is when the turbo hasn't warmed up yet.

Re: What's made you smile today?

Is it bad that ive been looking and checking the costs on getting a Fiat Bravo on finance.

A 1.9MultiJet 150T Bravo Sporting on finance would be a repayment of 138p/m over 3 years with upfront of 1.5k which would be the P/X of the Astra.

Insurance would go down from 780 that im paying for the Astra down to 420...

yes thats bad, drive the astra for 3 more years and put 138 a month away in savings account, after 3 years you will have gained money instead of lost and can go buy the same car for half the money with only a few thousand miles on it from a mobility auction

Yeah your right

I guess at the moment the milage im doing is annoying me in the Astra as it goes through 60 of Petrol every 5 days, and thats only 375miles on average, and thats trying to be economical. when i got the Astra is was doing 100miles a week so 60 lasted month.

Fuel costs are crippling, sooner the gov does something constructive the better seen as 50% is tax.

Fuel around me ranges from 129.9 to 139.9
I know that supermarket petrol is apparently not as good as the texaco etc stuff but as long as my car runs fine and its cheaper then im not too bothered. The "posh" petrol is around 140.9!
Edit: forgot to add my smile. Insurance for my (hopefully) new car is only 300 more which is still 400 cheaper than if I got insurance on my own instead of multicar policy with my mums car
