I've never been into new cars and have been perfectly content driving older wheels. A diet of retro Minis, VWs, series Land Rovers and quirky old Citroens have kept me mobile since I passed my test.
This afternoon I had a spin in a new C5 estate. I was a scream, like something Tomorrow's World would have predicted we'd be driving now back in the 70s.
I had a notion when I next need a replacement car to go for something German, but my mate had just bought this three year old 2.2 Exclusive which has all the toys for a tad over £5k. That represents a mahoosive depreciation from new, but is perfect for a shrewd used buy.
I think the C6 would be even more of a left field buy, but slightly less practical than an estate.
