    My grilfriend wants to get rid of her 206cc, problem is she is not sure what she wants next. She has about 10k to 12k to spend and has to be a supermini. She is really doing my head in now, and after a few of my suggestions (mainly cars from the VAG group) she still can't decide.

    Could you post some thoughts on what you would buy in her position so I can keep my sanity.

    Cheers

    new Mini I assume would be the best to go for by far.

    Either a Mini Cooper/S (not VAG i know), Lupo GTi or Polo GTi. All good cars!

    My wife has a Cooper S. It's a cracking car - almost as good as an Audi. The performance is OK and the handling is excellent. You might struggle to get one for 12k though.

    Cheers,

    I think you should go for Mini /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif. It is a great car which is suitable for misses. At least, thats what I think.

    Just thought I'd tell you guys that my sister has a Mini Cooper S, and it drinks Optimax like there no tomorrow, thirtier than my chipped S3 anyway /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif. I'd go for the Lupo or Polo GTi's personally, or even a Seat Ibiza Cupra... then chip it to 200 bhp for personal use over the weekends /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif

    My girlfriend currently has an R-reg Clio 1.4 which she seems to manage to make move faster than an RAF Tornado on reheat but she's just got a new job earning £80k pa (jammy!) so I suggested a new car might be in order and asked what she might want.

    Came the unexpected reply: an early 1970's Porsche 911. Apparently she thinks they are cool. I am actually vetoing the idea on health and safety grounds! Perhaps an early Boxster instead.....

    That is exactly what i was going to suggest. She needs to at least consider it and take one for a spin. Cracking little cars.

    Well there...you see! You're girlfriend is OLD School...Really cool! I love the idea. I had a porsche 913 (1969 model I think). It was very nice! But now, try to convince her to get a 993 turbo, for nice weekend trips /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif

    Took the misses to test drive a cooper today and there is some very bad news. She wants a cooper s. Very nice with good spec including the 17" wheels and leather. Thanks for everyones input.
