Hey people, was having a conversation with my old man about becoming a taxi driver as I love driving.

He thinks that the taxi companies provide the car but im sure you have to choose what car you want and get it kitted out.

Im im right I would choose a 166 or a 156.

Thought welcome :D

There's a bottle neck on my way home. Cars on the NS parked 1/2 on road, 1/2 on the pavement, double yellows on the OS. There was a bloody taxi there. It was a blue, big spokey alloyed 3 series estate taxi for the oncoming traffic around it onto our side of the road. :mad:


You can practice being a taxi driver by removing any one bulb from the front and the back of your car.

Another hint is if you pick up a reasonable female 'fare' don't get that engrossed in the conversation that you pull up and stop at green lights.

Or drive along with the rear window down in a downpour until they mention that the back seat is getting wet.

:eek:

How old are you Smallville? I got the feeling you were pretty young - I can imagine that it will be very difficult and very expensive to get insured as a taxi driver if so.

Not because the 156 isn't capable of it, i don't want someone yaking in the back of my bella

This thread is fairly old now ;) maybe not as old as the OP though :lol:

IIRC the OP bought a Subaru Impreza Wagon for his delivery business. I think there was a thread in the Motoring Images Section :)
