Bit of a mind dilemma going on here!
Expecting our first child soon, and given the fact that I generally cycle most places (work included) I end up feeling like there is a huge lump of cash sat on our drive most of the time, namely in the form of this:
54 plate Civic type R.
To be honest - I'm not that 'into' driving any more, and really fancy something not too sluggish, but with 5 doors, and probably an estate (we've a pretty big push chair - you should have seen the wife trying to put it into the back of a fiat 500 to 'see if it would fit'!).
Most of the driving we'll end up doing will be longer distance (to folk's houses with kid etc) and shopping, and was thinking along the lines of:
Toyota avensis estate
Focus / mondeo estate.
The civic's great, don't get me wrong, and with the rear seats down can easily fit a few bikes and gear in it, it's just that I'm not actually too fussed by the (very fast) speed of the thing any more!
Shall I sell and get a more sensible car - bearing in mind the re-sell value will be between 8-8.9k, which I'd probably dump straight back into the new car?
Oh what to do!
