Re: I got myself a 100HP - Finally!

The big diesels HGVs have ultra fine bypass filters that extract the fine dirt so the oil stays good. They top up as necessary but almost never need to change the oil.

Wow, what's the third car you have?
My mx5 is a 1993, so I'm at 19 years average, so I guess I will join you in the que of idiots then

Yeah, I'm not sure when insurance costs finally start to drop for new drivers. Have to confess I was on my parents' insurance for about 10 years before I finally had my own policy... on a 2CV... 3rd party only...

It's one of the reasons we chose the Panda whilst my girlfriend's learning to drive- it's group 2 insurance in the UK, so about as low as you can go, and these things make a biiiig difference when you don't have many years' experience behind you.

Testacorsa's right, though, we do get a good deal on motoring costs in the UK. There was some rubbish in the papers years ago about 'Rip-off Britain', all right some things cost more (diesel), but these things even out and generally we don't do too badly.

I like the German model where it's the car that's insured then anyone can drive it with permission. Sounds much easier. But then my German friend assures me that everything is 'Much Better In Germany'

I've spent some time in Ireland where tax and insurance is soooo expensive I don't know how anyone affords to drive. Parts are so dear and limited in choice I used to wait till I went back to the UK and bring parts with me.

When my Canadian brother-in-law moved to the UK he couldn't believe how cheap car insurance is here. He promptly got himself the Porsche 944 he'd always wanted because the premium was 'only' 1500
