Well there is really little to update my blog with in terms of cars
I have sold my MINI, it was something I initially enjoyed a lot and taking it on a whistle stop tour of Europe was good fun but it's not something I wanted long term ... I don't usually do small cars and as I really only want one car, it was too small to be the one to keep.
The Passat is a brilliant car and is a real tank of a thing, it feels like it would survive anything! The engine gives it real character and its huge load area has been perfect recently, its been in van mode for the past month or so.
The Audi is on loan to a family member whos Vauxhall expired and was only fit for scrap, so until I source them a new one, they're enjoying the A2. Which, once back, will be sold on as there is little use for it now.
As ever, my company car changes frequently but at the moment I have a C4 Cactus Flair BlueHDi. I'm real fan of the Cactus and had I not of been given the opportunity of a company car, I would still have the red one which I bought last year. Which incidentally my sister now owns, it covers a massive daily commute which is stacking on the miles heavily, but returns 60+ MPG, so it is ideal for her. Heres the one I have at the moment:
I keep looking for something else, as really the Audi will be gone soon and I won't be keeping the Passat long term. I really fancy a C6 and while seeing quite a selection at the Northern CCC event last weekend, that really spurred me on. Talking to their owners was a bit of a mixed bag of almost endless costs and others who had experience very few issues. A drive in the cream of the C6 range really gave me even more determination to get one, but will I take the jump ....
In other news I've finally bought my own house, which has been occupying all of my spare time over the last month or so. Despite it being a new build there is always changes to be made, decoration to be done and furniture to buy ... my Passat came is very handy there! Mind, I’m not sure if a C6 will fit in the garage, I'd best get the measuring tape out!
