    My car

    I purchased this car as I have opted out of a company-car scheme.

    I previously had a Volvo S60 D5 but wanted to reduce my tax bill. I prepared myself for a much slower and lower spec'ed car but was very pleasantly suprised. The 100HP (Red T and D on the back) was suprisingly nippy around the town and keeps up with the motorway traffic with no trouble at all.

    VW does a cruise-control upgrade for £200, which has made the car perfect for my uses, and it is now a better all-round family car than the S60 ever was.

    Highly recomended if you don't set your sights too high.

    My car

    DULL DULL DULL

    It has dead steering, it wallows about, the turbo lag is awful. It's solid but totally uninspiring inside. I was so pleased to get back into my Ford Focus.
