my beloved 147 has to go!

bad point-i have been told this week that i am to be given a company car so my beloved 147 has to go and i'm gutted!
Good point-i get to choose what car so i have ordered a new 156!
i would have loved another 147 but it's too small,nevermind hopefully the 156 should prove to be a worthy replacement, right??
any thoughts on my choice would be great-selespeed or manual etc.?
anyway if anyone wants a 147 give me a shout!!

If its a company car, check out the percentage of the list price taxed according to the CO2 emissions. This may affect your decision on engine size.

If you chose the 2.0ltr, personally I'd go for the manual because I couldn't trust a Sillispeed.

Best of luck!

agree with Damian - 2.0 L manual. seems the new JTS engine is a treat.
get the sportspack suspension & momo leather (with seatheaters), too. i love the center armrest on my 156 as well.
sat-nav/connect only if you really need it.

Whats wrong with the selespeed guys? I drive a 2.0 ltr selespeed and it's like drinving a F1 car. There is no comparison to manual and i'll neva go back to that outdated system of changing gears. Nothing beats the feeling of jumping down through and up the gears with my pinky finger only. The world at my fingertips!
