    100% find out what damage was caused to make it Cat C before parting with any cash....

    I'm assuming the 8P is really cheap due to it being a Cat C car?

    The 8p looks gash next to your S3 IMO (which is what you seem to be asking for), but obviously it'll never be a diesel. If it were me I'd be searching for a well looked after, well spec'd 8p diesel.

    Ok, but you must do mega-miles to offset that cost!

    If you are incapable of managing your own finances, or making your own decisions, then car ownership probably isn't the thing for you. Maybe let the wife make your decisions...

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Get rid of the ****ing beetle for christ sake!


    Do not swap that car!
    Your s3 is worth what it is till the end of time, and worth a million smiles!
    The 8p is an old one, and granted the 1.9tdi is a decent lump, the car will be worth £8.50 in not very long and the only way you'l get a smile is if your mrs washes it naked.


    Put the s3 on a limited mileage policy.
    Sell the beetle for something diesel.

    I think you know it already but no point switching cars unless your going to be happy with what your swapping too, like if your coming from an S3 you want at least sport, if not s line spec on the 8P.

    I'm pulling your leg mate , to be fair I get a wikid deal on insurance. I've got a company fleet policy which being only 23 yrs old it's priceless and my insurance broker is a relative so i get an unbeatable price.
