Living at home / not suffering PAYE tax system?!?!?
They aren't cheap to run, end of, and that's coming from a household with 2 people paying higher rate tax through PAYE!
Either that or worlds changed unbelievably since I left school driving an 11 year old Golf Mk1 GTi!
If that's what they spend the majority of there money on, and or have it on tick it's quite easy. I, like many others I imagine have other interests so run cheaper models

**PAYE victim not living at home
I don't fall into either of those Warren - just worked hard for the things I have and all paid for.
Agree with insurances and PAYE though, they are ridiculous! I'm paying around £900 for insurance, with no NCB. No claims but always been a named driver to keep costs down. By the looks of things its not getting cheaper either....!
Would a 'Spotted' thread/forum be useful?
