Default Getting a new car :)

Put a deposit down today on this:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-51-SEAT-L...QQcmdZViewItem

As soon as the loan company stop messing me around I'm going to be going to get it, next Thursday probably, so hopefully I'm going to have a nice shiny new car soon

nah, gonna stick with the proper diesel, im only going with a diesel cause it is a hellalot better on economy than a petrol car, having a nice turbo will help too..

the main reasons why im getting it are a) my old car is starting to cost too much b) i dont wanna go another summer without air con and c) i can get a new car, and have about 150-200 pound more each month.. need to save up enough money for next years insurance, but it should be good

Can you say torque?

And dude cars are expensive as heck over there. Not really buying but taxes and making sure they are fueled and registered and legal, that's where they get you.

cant afford a brand new car.. plus i prefer this style of the seat leon to the new style, a brand new car with the same kit i would be looking at at least 15,000-20,000 (thats $30,000-40,000 over there) id rather pay 4,000 ($8,000) and get a nice high spec car which is only 6 years old.. and 93,000 miles on a diesel is nothing. especially a modern diesel..

i love the torque of diesels.. makes them real nice to drive taxes are rediculous.. very annoying just how expensive it is, but ya cant do without a car once youve had one for 2 years.. lol..

Never heard of that type of car, who makes it? Where is it from?
