iv been going through a lot of sh*t lately about how much the williams is costing me. im 21 with a claim and a group 18 car. maintenance costs an arm and a leg too. so i decided i needed a new car with warranty.
i booked a test drive in the clio cup today thinking for sure that when i left id have bought one. drove the cup and loved it while i was in it, very quick, handled like a dream but it lacked a bit of something, not performance wise though. i felt too high in the seat and the pedals are wayyyyyyyyy to light for me. i was offered 3k part ex and very nearly bought one. but i declined and said id think about it cos of the huge (£1887) insurance cost. went home and thought about it but it just to much wonga for me to have a decent lifestyle cos of having to run a house to.
so i pondered on what else was available, and then it occurred to me there was something else on the market iv slated and never even been in one. so i went to my local citroen dealer. checked out a VTS. abs, metalic, all the toys, free insurance all for 10k on the road. this alone had wet my appetite so i needed a ride. what a top motor, serious grin inducing sweet spot in the power band that goes through 7k, great handling and awesome steering feel, not as fast as the cup but great fun and the bang for bucks is unrivalled. the free insurance is so tempting.
both cars lack the character of the williams. paul m warned me about this the other day, when your in your williams you feel special for some reason but i cant really afford to keep it.
not sure what im gonna do yet, gonna sleep on the saxo(not literally) but i may keep the willy. just wish it had free insurance and a 3 year manufactures warranty!
