So after my mental breakdown I got rid of my fancy cars and things, and have been running around in an oldish Vectra estate that a friend sold me for 900 "quid" - it's been to the moon and back and is a rough old dog but it's great for ferrying the dog and bike
I miss the feel of big German steel though; something with a bit of class and style would be right up my street - currently I'm looking at BMW 750is on the trader and I can't believe how much they depreciate. I know why they do; high running costs and for such a big car are not very practical. However I would probably only put 3 or 4 thousand miles on one a year; no advantage in getting a diesel; the insurance is also surprisingly cheap.
Has anyone run an older (6 or 7 years) big motor, and can you offer any advice?
PS look at what you get for about 8 grand!
