LK, do you want me to get some shots of the rear seats in a BRZ? I can get in the car too so you've got an idea of the size.
I'm 6ft 2" with long legs.

MX5 gone already? Did you even get the chance to enjoy it with the roof down? Surely it has just been raining and snowing in the month or so you owned it!

Gone !!!

I did love it, and it wasn't meant to be flipped .... and with the sun is out today, I am missing it !!!!!

BUT ... I saw ££££'s, and took them.

Surprisingly, I did get the roof down quite a bit - and loved it.

SO ............. the big question ........ is which 4 seater convertible do I buy ??

My preference is the E Class ..... but the decent ones are diesels, and I'm not buying a diesel.
A3 again, doesn't come with an exciting petrol engine option (that I can afford - ie. S3)
A5 just doesn't do it for me somehow .. big wallow'y old things
3 series is a contender ..... but with their hard top - not the prettiest of things ....
M235i is just a bit gay .... Twisted Evil Very Happy

Suggestions ?

Nah, I bet it’s cracking !!!! .... and I bet it’s much better than the M135i - taking the roof off will give it a whole new dimension

Yes, let’s meet at some point - with Hugh and whatever mega-horse power car he has at the time ...

I've been in an A5 3 litre diesel and it's far from wallowy. Owner has had it mapped and it makes about 280bhp IIRC. It's impressive and a nice place to sit. Goes like the proverbial.

read a report today that said diesel sales suffered a huge slump in the new car sales figures.........not really surprising seeing as the governcunt took a huge U-turn on diesels (even though they were told 20+ years ago that particulates were seriously dangerous to human health.....twats)

There's a bit of time left for diesels yet. But yes, the has turned.

If it means more bargainy second hand ones....i'd certainly still consider them.

I’d buy a diesel for a while yet

There’s no way I’d buy an expensive diesel or brand new diesel though, at least while gov are looking at what their next move will be

I doubt a new diesel poses much of a risk. They're unlikely to increase taxation retrospectively and for many cars diesel still makes the most sense. The ones to avoid are old diesels, 06 and older, which there has been talk of banning from cities.
