    what the ferk is that? lol.... looks like a Kia to me? we looked at a Kia sorrento, the 4x4 things. Very very well specced, its just getting over the name. I decided that i didnt want another vectra, after having 2 already. Nothing against them, its just im bored of looking at the same dash since 2002.

    As you know I went for a V70 in the end as I found it to be the ultimate estate car. I also considered an A4 avant and 3 series tourer but both had too small boots. The V70 rival for us was the saab 9-5 estate but in the end the Volvo dealer came up with the better deal. At the car supermarket (where we are getting the V70 from), we also looked at a Nissan xtrail, zafira, mercedes C class estate, Passatt, Kia sorrento, Ford Maverick and Nissan terrano but the V70 was the one which ticked our boxes. I hope it lives up to what im expecting of it.

    I was so close to one of them (in orange!!) but the wife didn`t like it, and I was 50/50 with the VXR, there really isn`t anything it between them imo ...

    I've got a real thing for Alfas at the moment. They certainly seem to be getting their act together.

    Plan is in twelve months time when the Vec is three years old, the Missus gets either a Focus or Astra to replace her Fiesta and thus becomes the driver of our 'family' car.

    Me? I'm in love with this.


    Failing that, the GT is a close second.


    Fancy a diesel version of either, with the same engine as in the Vec. Essential that either one is in Alfa red with tan leather interior.
