    Default New Job.... New Car.....

    I have recently quit my job after realising that after a year working from home, the novelty wears off and it soon becomes a pretty isolated existence, especially for a chatty salesman like me.

    I have just accepted a new job as an Advertising Manager for a Publishing firm. Publishing is what I spent 5 years doing before and I wish I'd never left - so I am going back!

    So unfortunatly thats the end of my Vectra days for now. The thing with company cars is that on the one hand you save a living fortune as they don't cost, but on the downside you don't always get the choice. I've been lucky in my last job that I was able to choose the Vectras.

    The new job has a company car waiting for me, which is a lot smaller.

    Its a Renault Clio. (Damn it I thought, just gonna have to buy a veccy myself or something).

    But then full details came through of what exactly it was.....



    Renault Clio 2.0 Litre 16v Sport Cup Edition.

    Thats a 0 - 62 mph in 6.7 Seconds 172 BHP
    Top speed - 138 mph.

    There goes my fuel economy figures!!

    So I am quite excited now about taking posession of my little pocket rocket. I am sure that it wont have the classy feel of the vectra but hey - it'll be a fun little car.


    The Vectra goes back on the 15th March.

    Hopefully I won't be booted out the door at the same time from this place and you'll let me stay on as a lurker!!!!! Someone asked me last night if i'd join a Clio forum - my answer..... I just dont think it would be the same!!

    i'm sure you'll always be welcome round here R-man. shame the vec goes back just a few days before santa pod, otherwise you could have had a bit of fun in her before giving her back.

    good luck in the new job!

    I am, definitly. The clio will be different, but fun. I'm looking forward to having a small car again for a while! I'd be p*ssed off if I was going into a Fraud Focus 1.4 nothingmobile!

    Company cars don't cost you up front, but they sting you big time in tax -that's why I ditched mine!
    Oh, and I'd start building your relationship with your local Renault dealer -if yours is anything like the 182 that we've got on our fleet, it'll be spending a lot of time there.
    They're a fun car to drive, but it feels a bit odd after driving diesel -the Clio shoves out most of it's power above 4,000 rpm, and my CDTi has run out by then!
