Its a good runabout to work and my girlfriends, I get petrol free, dad pays for insurance, and the car is very cheap.

Is that your actual car in the photo or just one that is the same? If it is your car, surely you have to pay more insurance because it is left hand drive, and you need to pay the registration charges to get it registered in the UK?

My Vauxhall Astra is surprisingly economical even though it hardly ever sees the centre of London and spends most of its time outside my house, at the supermarket or on the motorway.

Hey, don't knock small cars, I've had several in my time, years ago with me it was cash flow when I was first married, I live in England & there's no shortage of large cars in the franchise where I get mine, which were a Passat then an Audi A4, now an 'A' class Merc, [I downsized cos I had difficulty getting out of the A4, high sill] they sell a fair quantity of the top of the range Mercs including the very latest 'S' class sports, with auto fold-away metal roof, soft-close hood, trunk & doors, a neighbour of mine bought himself one last month in silver, wow!!
Then you mention Europe the home of the Volvo, have you seen their latest XC90, starts at 33.950?, then there's the S80, 24,995 a cousin of mine has one [that's the rich side of my family].....shall I go on?
