      I drive a car that's in front :D
      Hope it's not a Corolla or Auris built between 2001 and 2009?

      It is mate! 51 plate Corrolla :D



      I wish, but I can't fit me 3 boys in that :)

      This is what I'm hoping for next year if I play my cards right:

      I'd really like one of these....very popular though and hard to find a used one for a reasonable price.

      Check out the price of a used Jeep in the UK, bet you could buy a new one for the same money as a three year old car over here.

      Wouldn't surprise me....it seems all American cars carry a high premium over your way. Of course, most of us yanks can't afford British cars either ;D

      Yea I paid $4.14/gal for Premium this morning. That's about as high as it's been in a long time. When I was in high school (admittedly a long time ago) I remember it being $.85/gal. Those were the days ;D

      I don't even look at fuel prices anymore, I just go fill up, pay then sit in my car and weep before pulling away.

      There's no use worrying about it honestly, nothing I can do to control prices and I'm not going to drive a Prius so...oh well.

      I had a mad moment and bought a Wrangler 4.0l convertible. the hood took about 30mins to put back up. I also had the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee mobile arm chairs both of them

      What was the wrangler like to live with ( apart from the hood ) was thinking of getting one as a second car.

      Just leased a VW Toureg for myself and a Range Rover Evoque for the wife....sounds fancy but the sals you can get over here in the US and the fact that i can get a tax break on both due to our work means that it works out to be a steal!

      We got a Wrangler Unlimited (4 door) a few months back.

      I love it. Ride is a little rough, but love the convertible factor and the fact that it would  go anywhere I'd ever ask it.

      Why did the U.K. get an awesome version of the Ford Escort? The 80s and 90s Escorts were complete, 100% sh*t. 4cyl, no power, ugly sh*t boxes that constantly broke down. The only good 90s Fords were the 5.0 Mustang and the Taurus SHO.

      Replaced the 80's and early 90's hooligans car, the Sierra cosworth, more of a homage to the 80's 3 door Sierra Cosworth..
