    its a spanking motor mate, I would have refused at gunpoint to get rid of it for a dull-box.

    Get an RS4 Avant then, and she cant say nuthin!

    A picasso / zafira says "I have now served my biological purpose, and im waiting to die." or "my wife picks my car"

    LOL

    ah, good to hear it mate. Take it from someone who has 5 kids (all grown up now) - dont ever have any. Buy the car you want and never ever let the wife have a say in it.

    I once turned up with an mr2 turbo that I swapped my scooby for, and the wife went mental. I went for a drive. Nuff said LOL!

    The fekin credit crunch crap is slowing my new car aspirations cos they all want 20% cash deposit now on TOP of a strong trade-in. Its pissing me off but I will get the right deal yet.

    Good luck - and if you do get a 911, let us see it! I am torn between a 911 and an M3 at the mo....

    Mate - drive both. The M3 is great but I personally dont like the image that goes with them. Having come from a Boxster, I can certainly vouch for the fact that you need deep pockets to maintain Porsches.

    I bought the S4 as I presumed that buying an 04 plate car, it would be less costly to run than a Porsche. Not a chance. It appears that I bought someone elses problems, which i have now just finished paying for over the past six months. In all honestly, I love the car to pieces, and if I cant get very close to the asking price, there is no way I am going to sell it, and I could be stuck with a lot worse.

    I tried to PX it on Monday and got offered............13k. The piss taking c u next tuesday.
