    And surprisingly reliable. Mate at work has one and occasionally has his 2 little kids in the back.

      I wouldn't buy a Golf R/135i as a 'fun' car simply because a) They're not fun, and b) The Focus RS is probably better suited.

      If you have this freedom to buy something you actually want to drive you have to be a bit stupid. Civic R, Megane RS, Lotus, MX5 or even a secondhand Mustang if they're getting that cheap would be my bet. Or Fiat 500 Abarth if you're feeling really stupid.

          Sounds like a plan.

            Either that or try to get one of the newer higher power 2L MX5s, if you really don't care for practicality.
            Did you miss this bit?

            "80% of the km done in my RS would be by myself. I hardly ever get a chance to drive it properly (I have a 3yr old and a 3 month old). So it does the odd 2nd gear pull on freeway onramps and thatís kind of it. With two kids we are also starting to find the limits of itís size."

            Fiesta would be smaller inside than RS one would think.

                I did. But then saw the next bit where he thought 135i or Boxster.

                Tried sitting in a Boxsterís back seat?

                  Dunno if itís just me but I have driven most cars out there as Iím in the trade! But every time I drive a Toyota I always think to myself they are reliable fuckers but why do people even spend money on these things?! They are shit, no frills!

                  Spend a bit more get something better. Reliability aside they are shit period!

                    I mean one of the cars needs to be bigger than the current biggest car (RS), but doesn't need to be fun

                    The other car can be any shape or size, but needs to be fun

                      But reliability is 280% why people buy them!
                      Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                            No, one of the two has to be fun, the other useful; Ranga fails on both counts.

                              There are a raft of vehicles that your wife would be happy with. The interesting ones on the other hand....

                              Cheap boxsters are a dime a dozen and the guys buying them seem to be pretty happy with the experience. Lotus is the track day car of choice though.

                                Goes good, turns good, stops good, seats are comfy, boot is big, economy is amazing, dual zone climate, ipod, bluetooth streaming with control etc etc, colour screen, decent headlights - it doesn't have led's everywhere like a mazda, but it's reliable - it's a balance - being cheap at everything keeps the mrs happy, allows me to have 1000hp of other cars to drive - :shrugs: - when they are running


                                mum has a ct200 lexus thing - it's got the bells/whistles shit - but pretty pus to drive.
