I expect FULL reviews, thank you!

I know you will be guaranteed to be driving an Audi of some sort as you are very much in love with them again at the moment.

Will there be more than one or two cars tested?

An E Class convertible for sunny days;
A Porsche for road trips;
A Golf R for the city;
A Cayenne for the school run;
A Caterham for track days; and
An i10 for posing...

You really won't like it LK. Rolling Eyes

Not driven one yet, but small and 160 bhp sounds alright to me .... the instructors at the Caterhams track day said they are the perfect first track day car.

My Lotus was only 156bhp - outright grunt isn’t what these cars are about.

Lol.

Ultimately I want to get to the point where I have 2 or 3 cars .... the MX5 is either a track day keeper, or will make way for an Boxster/Cayman .... but it’s step by step for now.

Then I want a daily, which will fall somewhere better than the A3, and may end up being the in-laws 3 series convertible very shortly - which is good, because it’s a very low mileage and going to be cheap - but bad because it’s another 4 pot BMW !!!
