Hello all,

Just thought I'd introduce myself... My name's Pete , and I live just outside Glasgow. I currently drive a WRX and an Elise but I'm in the process of looking around for a replacement for the WRX (fabulous car, utterly untouchable on the right road, peerless chassis and an astonishing engine) as I fancy a change.

I' ve looked at BMWs (sorry if any of you have one but they don't do it for me. I want to like them but they are way too common and just seem to lack any personailty), and everything else I could think of below about 10k and nothing grabbed me except the 156...

So I'm looking for a sub 10k 156, ideally a Lusso (is that the one with leather and cruise?) in a strong colour (I like red and dark blue), ideally a 1.9 jtd as I'm trying to get my fuel bills down after the WRX . I've looked at one 2.4 but it was a bit tired, hugely toquey though and handles well considering - I think the 1.9 uses less fuel though...

It seemed like this forum may be a good place to start...


(PS if anyone wants to px a 156 for a wrx I could be your man )

Re: Hi.

Hi and welcome. Remember if your going to get a Lusso (for leather and cruise) save around 600-700 for that all important suspension kit, you'll need it as Lusso suspension is very soft, and if you want a car that handles well don't forget about this when buying the car. Go for the 2.4, you won't regret it.
