okay, well the Mini option is sadly not a goer. I had the pleasure of driving the Cooper S last night and thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Great fun. Anyway, as a result, I am now looking for something to replace the Fiesta. Nothing wrong with the car, it just lacks a few luxuries that I want. So, I am chasing some ideas. Here are the guidelines;
car needs to be a bit different
I have to be able to drive it every day in peak hour traffic
it will be left in the sun all day long
it is in a public car park
it has to be air cond
it cant be so different that it will attract attention from the wrong sort
absolute top $$$ spend is 10 grand, but would prefer less
So far, I have thought of a mid 1980's BMW 3 series (not 318), a mid 80's BMW 5 series, EB/ED V8 Fairmont Ghia....and thats about it. I considered an XC GXL Fairmont with very low kms, but wouldnt feel right about leaving it all day.
So, any ideas, or feedback on the BMW's from that era would be greatly appreciated.
