Looks like a fun car, though.
I guess you're American by that, three of my many [18] cars were 1.4, 1.6 & 1.8

Nice buy..

I can't wait until im 17, not too long and I'm expecting to drive within the month I start learning, and I alreasy have lessons from the rents.. I've got a car sorted, and my uncle is paying my 5,000 insurance for 4 years, until im 21..

It's a Peugeot 306, 1.6Ltr, Turbo, GTI.. 4 door, EMS, FMS, ABS, Electric Windows, Air-Con, and a 600W sound system. Currently owned by my mother, she's willing to give it to be for my 17th. Once I get it, it's getting rims, and tints..
Thanks James, it's standing on my drive, the silver & chrome looking great in the evening sun.
Don't be impatient, you'll soon be driving good cars with your uncle's & mother's help, but drive carefully!.

it looks like a fun little car to drive, although not something I would personally like to drive. However, it might suit the roadways in England better than Canada.

Yes, a good description, the Audi was good, but this is better, I particularly like the stainless steel cills at the foot of each of the four doors engraved "Mercedes Benz"
I understand that Mercedes was Herr Benz's daughter.

Looks like a nice car, I for sure would take! Good gas mileage too. How is it driving, is it wimpy, or feel wimpy at all? Some smaller cars rally seem like your driving a lawn mower but other s aren't too bad.

Wimpy*, nah, not at all, higher revs in than the Audi in 1st & 2nd, but very quiet in 3rd 4th & 5th, got it last Friday, had a look under the bonnet/hood today for the first time today, unusual engine layout due to the compartment not being horizontal, but everything is easy to get at, clever how they've done it.
Could you put a pic of a silver one in a post?, thanks.

*That's a term I use!
