    Default Your other Car?

    Hi all.
    Just want to check with those of you that have another car.
    My Wife and I just had our first child in September and now that he's becoming more alert we're trying to get him out & about a bit more.

    I currently have the Vectra - 2007 120 Sri. My wife's car is a 2001 Megane Coupe. As it is only 3 door it limits her travel. Although it's a bit old now she only bought it for £4k when it was 4 year old, and hasn't had a problem once. So we are nervous about giving up on it.

    Before we take the leap I just wanted to check what everyone else has as a second car. We would need it to be a 5 door at least, but not fussed on size. I wouldn't mind a wee 1.2 go-kart that I can go Euro crazy on and let her take the Vectra so would welcome any views or opinions.

    Realistic budget is about 5k or up to 7k for a larger car.

    Good mixture already.
    Not sure I could stretch to Beemer tbh Shineysig (ya luck git).

    A lot of double vec / sig combo's too, I suppose that's an option, just thought it might have been a bit weird, but I suppose if you know and trust a car then why try anything different. Always wanted a Signum...an elite would be a bonus, or a GSI Vec hmmm. Food for thought.
