Re: A Potential Newbie!
I can say I really loved driving the GTV 2.0TS, it's not slow and the handling was divine. Really comfortable throwing it around tight British roads, and the 16V is great on the motorway.
Sure the 3.0 V6 will be faster and sound great, but you have a lot more weight over the front which affects the handling (and I think they eat front tyres too, no?). Also from previous research I think 25mpgs out of the V6 is optimisitic.
If it is a post 2001 car you will get hit on the road tax (they are Band G I think), so if you do go for a V6, get a pre-2001 car so you get the flat tax/congestion charge banding! Next year band G cars will cost £400 a year in road tax!! (Whereas the GTV 2.0 is band F = £205).
It wouldn't surprise me if in future all car related taxes related to carbon emissions...
