Something to look forward to...
I don't have much to look forward to in my life *violins play* ... or at least that's what I thought until I found out that soon to be delivered is my mum's new Mini Cooper...

http://www.mini.co.uk/...del.jsp?model=cooper

...and in March my dad is taking delivery of an Audi TT...

http://www.audi.co.uk/...p?section=/models/tt

I'm so excited. The audi will be our first leather seated car.

I think these tablets I'm taking are starting to kick in, I'm feeling positive at last Smile

I heard in Silcon Valley mini's are becoming popular.

They've been popular here in Sapporo for a bit. Lol ... If I had jumped on the band wagon 5 years ago and imported some into the states .... Unsure

I wanna take one down a stairway Wink

openoffice + gimp + sketch ... Smile

I'm not too keen on them myself, I prefer the new VW beetle but I'm on the insurance so I won't say no to taking it for a spin Smile

I've seen a few of the mini's around here (Silicon Valley) but I don't think they're popular just yet. We still prefer large SUV's and BMW's. Although I have seen quite a few used BMW's for sale recently :)

Yep, I finally broke down and bought a new truck this summer. Didn't really need one, but what the heck! It has leather seats and a moonroof and gets pretty good gas economy (for a V-8).

Your mom's car looks like it'd be fun to drive.

Sexy looking truck. It looks like something out of A-Team :)

You don't see many trucks like that in the UK.

It cost more per month than the rent on my old apartment did. Crazy

That's to be expected from you though :)

Moi, a boy racer? Nah! Crazy

It was the white van driver who was at fault (not that I'm claiming). He pulled out on me on a roundabout, so I obviously had right of way, therefore it wasn't my fault at all ;)

Anyway...back to the horrible new looking minis ...heheh

For the mini?.....nooo I wouldn't be able to get insured on it (nor my sister probably) so we had to get the less powerful one :(

I've still got my heart set on a Honda S2000 - although the new BMW Z4 doesn't look to bad either. The TT is far too ugly Tongue

I didn't say I _have_ one, just that I want one Unsure. The S2000 is not exactly a typical Honda rice-rocket though.

If one was parked on my driveway I'd sell it and buy a better-looking car Tongue

Woooo meow Cool ...I thought you lived in a flat anyway :)

I did tell my dad he could have got a porsche boxster for the same price :) ...one of my friends reckons they are just a poor mans porsche though, but my dad reckons they are one of the best made cars available.

My dad just has an obsession for audi's though.

I had right of way...its a weird roundabout, where the main road goes literally straight over it. Its almost like the roundabout was randomly dropped on the side of the road. The reason I think they put it there was cos there is a main road that has to slip onto the other main road. Its a bit confusing...but either way, i had right of way, and I didn't need to indicate Wink

Porsche Boxters don't start for less than 35k. You can pick up a TT for 24k.

Yeah, well, I agree with your old man here. I'd go for the TT -- I really like them. I couldn't afford the insurance, though -- that is if someone would ever insure me.

Other than that, it's got to be an Austin Martin DB7 for me. :-)

Vantage is better :)

In an ideal world I'd have a McLaren road car, or if I couldn't afford the 600,000 price tag I'd go for a Bentley Sedanca
