It must look good first and then I'll consider the rest.

Re: What is MOST important in a car?

Well I have to say its performance I go for first, obviously power is important but handling is a consideration also.

I just decided not to swap my JTD 10v for a JTD 20v, instead keep the 10V and get something else...

Re: What is MOST important in a car?

I wanted to opt for Looks and Performance. But I can't so I choose looks first.

I'm not a poser. **Puts Ray Bans on**

Ah yes but if there were two of you - that would make you senior drivel man and then they could not get rid of you for not doing any work.

Re: What is MOST important in a car?

I'm not too bothered about gadgets but I voted for the interior, that's the bit you spend most time looking at

Actually, now I think about it, it's probably not, if I add up all the second glances as I'm walking away after parking, staring out of the window every 5 minutes until it goes dark after I've washed it....
