Hmmm Car Budget

How do you apportion your car budget?

Looks, gadgets or engine?


Lots of people here in DERV land buy the tiny engine
base model version of cars.



Personally I go for the biggest engine and then add other spec
up to the budget.

But on other car forums many people seem to go for the look/gadgets
on the smallest possible engine. (And even the 2WD version of the
Ewok, which is a heresy worth burning over in my books! )

Being a used buyer, I buy on condition and mileage.

After I have chosen a make and model that I like that is.

Tend not to worry about mileage but basically this.

It depends on what I'm buying.
No hard and fast rules.
The daily has to have:-
  1. Good MPG (35+)
  2. Lower tax band

Whatever money I have at the time dictates what I spend, though for daily grind car I probably suffer for buying cheap.
