159 2.2 TI

My Brera had to go due to squashed tiny feet in the back. Replacement TI is a joy and although not quite up there in the style stakes the handling is miles better in the 159. Miss that sunroof though!

I prefer not to drive my wifes FR-V (though as suvs go it is very good) the only coupe I have come across that really worked was the rx-8 but I couldn't afford the oil!
Did you not try the GT? A bigger boot than the RX-8 and loads of room in the back. I suppose the added bonus of the suicide doors in the RX-8 counted. To be honest I sort of considered an RX-8 when I found out the missus was pregnant as I couldn't see myself without a coupe. The 159 thankfully eased those worries with how cool and how practical it is all in one cracking package!!!

Try getting a quote from an Irish company, they don't want to know if it's over a 1.6....

I did look at the GT but it felt like a step back, also I didn't like the engine choice.

My cousin (Irish) insures his car from my address but lives in Galway, saves him 900 a year (for a 1.8 mondeo worth about 2k).
