A 156 or a 159 could be in budget, have you had a look at both of them? They're totally different cars. Not a great lot of options for automatic gearboxes though, the manuals are better.

Dunno about 159 running costs but my V6 156 has cost a fair bit to run... Partly my fault for paying for most of it but things like the timing belt I'd consider beyond most home mechanics!

Thanks for that.......have seen a few very nice, also, looking at the estate versions.....quite like the hatch back too.......am in no rush.........manuals are cheaper more mpg I assume.........do you know any used dealers please
