The delightful Ms S has expressed a desire to chop her Punto in for a sporty car whilst we're both still continent enough to enjoy it.
And who am I to argue?
Doesn't have to be a convertible, doesn't have to only have two seats, but both an advantage in Ms S's eyes.
Has to be capable of long journeys in reasonable comfort, with enough luggage space for a weekend away.
Ability to mount a bike rack an advantage, but we've got a Doblo for that
Budget will be well under £10,000, probably about half that unless she sees something she really, really likes, in which case all bets are off.
We both like MX5's and S2000's.
Neither of us are THAT keen on BMW Z3's, so they're probably out.
We've mates who've experienced the full horror of Alfa Spider/GTV ownership (replacement engines, court cases etc) so unfortunately they might be out too.
It'll have to do big miles and be kept for years, so million mile Boxters might not be the best suggestion as we don't want to spend a fortune on servicing & don't want it to get keyed whenever we park it up.
What else should we be looking at?
Many thanks in advance.
