    Used car for 5 grand?

    The engine is not the only problem, everything was knackered when I got it, brakes, front right suspension , power windows, stereo.. will take a lot to fix every thing up, might as well part it out at this point.

    These guys are finally coming into their own. I was watching the TGUK Bolivia Special just yesterday(got to watch reruns), this episode is almost comparable. Humour was always strained in most of the episodes but it is getting better. A solid 9 for me.

    Used car for 5 grand?

    I love old BMWs the 70s BMW 2002 is on my list of cars to buy someday, the E30 BMWs as well have reached the point where they can be called modern classics, so any buyer has to think quite a lot before actually buying one. The fact of the matter is its only time before we see these appreciating...

    Used car for 5 grand?

    Thanks guys the Mustang and the Miata look really interesting, I probably have to widen my search a bit, How reliable are cars over 10 years old? I mean I dont want to end up getting a money pit... my maintenance on the 01 focus was on average about $400 every 3 months.

    9.5 for me, The race was epic, Glad the car won(XK120's are my all time favorite) loved the Vincent, The Camera work was awesome, especially the passing shots of the train near the coast. The Evora review was uninteresting, the FXX (yawn!) would definitely be the fastest on the track(Its a track...

    Some pretty good stuff this week, Good to see some TGUK lunacy creeping in. The Elfin cars review was pretty good, The Armoured car segment would have been a lot better if they brought along a MP5 Assault Rifle :mrgreen: Cant wait for the Pontiac G8 review next week, looked pretty funny :)
