Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

I'd forgotten how much fun driving in London is. Use indicators anywhere especially on roundabouts and you get funny looks. Do something as normal as letting someone out of a junction instead of advancing four feet and it's like "Invasion of the Body Snatchers".



I shouldn't get a Congestion charge ticket as I had a Vicks Inhaler with me.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Mum is part exchanging her punto for a rover 25 as the rover has more doors and a lower mileage and would be better for her.

Like any Fiat, a Rover 25 can be very nice, or a money pit, but with significantly less backup!

Have you told her Puntos come with 5 doors too?

Hmmm, I wouldn't do that, a mk2 Punto is far safer than a rover 25, plus I'd imagine it would be cheaper to run.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

She knows there are 5 door ones but there aren't any in our price range (£500) near us
She has test drove the rover and it is a lot better than I thought it would be
Its also got a new mot with no advisories

Avoid the Rovers. They are deathtraps. Get a mk2 Clio instead.

How have you figured that one out? The Rover 25 is a 3* rated N Cap and a MK2 Punto is 2* N Cap.

That would tell me the Rover is safer. And I would guarantee the Rover is also better built, better to drive and more reliable than a MK2 Punto.

The mk1 Punto scored a 2* NCAP rating, the mk2 Punto scored a 4* NCAP rating, and the Grande Punto scored 5*. I had originally wanted a mk1 Punto for my 1st car, but when I saw the NCAP result, I swiftly changed my mind! I also considered a Seicento, but after seeing the 1.5* rating, I lost my liking for them!
