Merc 190E 2.5-16

Company car choice


My name is James

I own a 190E Merc 2.5-16 cossie. (which is currently for sale)

Just bought a Porsche 944S as a weekend project/ track car

Reason for joining. my company car choice.....

I wouldn't normally bother with Alfa's but when everything, inc services tax, mot even tryes are paid for, they make sense!!!

I was asked to provide 4 cars i would like as a company car from expensive to cheapish. and depending on how my sales went in the first six months depends on my car i get.

So my list was ( i like fast cars, but am very young)

1) Lotus Elise 1.6 It's 28,000 and does 0-60mph in 6.2

2) Alfa Guiletta 170Bhp Veloce with audio optional extra and nice wheels. It's 25,785 does 0-60mph in 8.4

3) Alfa Mito Cloverleaf with alot of extras costing 21,075 does 0-60mph 7.2secs (0-62mph as in brochure 7.5)

4) Skoda Fabid VRS standard 180bhp. It's 17,125 and does 0-60mph in 6.9
Chose the Skoda because it practical 5 door and very fast, and mainly because it's 1200 cheaper than a Polo GTI with the same engine and chassis AND comes with a DSG gearbox which is a 1250 option on the polo.

It's most likely they will not give a 21yr old a lotus, so im gonna end up with a Guiletta or Mito, fingers crossed not the Fabia

As a company car, don't you need four doors/four seats?
