What car do you drive (or did you just order)
« on: November 04, 2012, 11:20:53 PM »
Okay guys...

As in The Netherlands a Litre (0.25 Gallon) of petrol is 1.79 at the moment (About two times more expansive then in the USA, so stop complaining) and our previous car was a total loss after a massive accident where my girlfriend came out the VW with just a few scratches we are about to order something more economical:

Seat Mii. Limited @Mii edition.  And it does 20 kilometres per litre (or 60 miles to the Gallon) with a heavy right feet.

How come? The car can't have been used that much as it is raining all the time in the UK.  ;D

I've bought a manufacturer new Volkswagen Golf VI last January with nearly every interior equipment that's available - from Bi-Xenon lights over automated parking functions to the premium onboard computer.

It exactly fits my parking garage, so that's why not a bigger car and due to that garage I was able to skip the auxiliary heating, as well as the big navigation system that gets stolen extremely often.



I've ordered the small 1.2 turbo gasoline engine with 105HP, making it possible to have 4.5-5.5 litre/100km at 130km/h but still goes fast enough up to 210km/h on the Autobahn. Perfect car with low running costs (important for poor University students) and still safe and fast driving.

Had a Nissan Micra 160SR until August this year, but it has been declared total loss by the insurance company after a car crash... Looking for a new car now... ;D

Well, she's a little bit less fuel-efficient than the car in the original post, and her 6.0L engine alone is about as large as some of the cars mentioned in this thread ;) , but here's my GTO (Holden Monaro for the Aussies, Vauxhall Monaro for the Brits)

I live on an island with basically no roads so I don't own a car anymore.

Prior to moving here I had -
1 x HSV (Holden Special Vehicle) R8 Clubsport - to play :-)
1 x VY S pack Holden Ute - to tow my jet ski
1 x 2009 Mitsubishi van - work :-(
1 x BMW R1150RS motorbike - more play
1 x Harley Davidson 1200cc - because I thought I needed one...I didn't
1x Yamaha GS1300cc Waverider jetski - even more play

Registration and Insurance for this lot kept me poor

And now I get around in one of these as I keep holidaying in Philippines :-)

I'm currently driving a 2yr old BMW 320D Efficiency Dynamics but will be getting a new car in a few weeks time. (i've already done 55,000 miles in 2yrs)

This time I've ordered a Nissan QashQai Tecna 1.6litre Diesel.

The BMW is great (it does 750miles with one tank when driving 80-85mph or 1200 kms when driving 130-140kp/h)
but as I've got a 6month old boy it has become a bit useless.. The boot space is too small so that's why I've gone for a larger car.
