    Default Courtesy car.....a Vectra equivalent apparently

    Well chuffed.

    Dropped my car off to have some body work done, and my insurance company are offering a free courtesy car while the work is done. No big news there.

    Phone the company up and Monday morning arrived and a brand spanking new beamer pulled up. Delivered from 8miles covered, i've already done 150 odd in it, and I'm ashamed to say it's quite nice.....

    59 plate BMW 520d M Sport estate, coming in at over £32,5k!!!!!! Automatic, 177bhp, full leather, nav, new car smell, really impressed.

    It goes round corners so much better than my vectra it's depressing. I now understand what all those M badges do to the car, well worth it in my eyes.

    But, i also now know the stigma that comes with one, people don't let you in, never wave a thank you and consider you a merchant banker* (replace with whatever word you feel is appropriate).

    So far it's been an interesting experience so far.

    its not comparing like with like, you could get a vectra 1.9 cdti sri for 12k new at the end of the run, id rather have 3 of them than 1 bmw 520.
