    Default Recommend me a new car!

    im thinking of ditching the vec soon and need another car.
    i wanna get rid of the vec because it feels like a boat, its just huge, even with my uprated suspension, and engine breathing mods it still feels like a barge!!! OK its only a 1.8vvti and we all know that they are under-powered, but my little 1.4 MG ZR felt quicker and nimbler than the vec, even when it was bog standard!!

    Ok so the new car needs to have:
    4 doors
    a reasonable sized boot
    a diesel engine,
    and i have to be able to modify it.

    any suggestions?

    Skoda Octavia would be a good bet, 4 doors and a much bigger boot than the Vectra. Go for the 1.9 TDi as it is more economical to run and more reliable than the 2.0 TDi. Nice cars but not very many airbags if car safety is a concern for you, as even the top spec only has two bags. Main reason I moved on to the Mondeo (and now Vectra).

    I like the octavia, but only 2 airbags is not enough, ive got a 2 year old son and 1 on the way so safety is a big concern.
    I like the mondeo st diesel, but they're still expensive aint they, and not to mention as big as the vectra!!
