I am wanting to replace my car due to the fact my current one having little niggly problems with it.

There are a few things that I want in my car.

Air-con is a must have, and most cars that have air-con usually have all the other little things I want, so that is all I need to tell you.

So far I have a short-list.

Ford Ka Luxury. Has all the extras but only a 1.3, low(ish) insurance though.

Fiat Stilo. Preferably the 1.8 or above, insurance is actually surprisingly low for this, but reliability may be a problem.

MG ZR. Again reliability may not be great, insurance likely to be high too.

BMW 3 series. main problems, insurance and having to buy an older model because of the price.

Hyundai Coupe. Everything I need, low(ish) insurance for a 2.0 car, parts will be hard to come by though.

Anyone with good knowledge, or anyone who owns or has owned any of these cars, advice please. Or if you want to suggest other cars that is fine also.

I dont want to spend any more then 8000, and I dont REALLY want to spend that much.

A Fiesta 1.6Si

Cost me 2500 new, now it's probably only worth about 800. next year I'll be getting a loan for another motor I think. It costs me 590 3rd party fire and theft.

Especially with animal skin seats, a furry interior and twin exhausts. :)

I think he means the Fiat. Which, I must admit is tiny. But the MG is great: It's sporty, roomy and is fun to drive.

And whatever you do, don't get a Nissan Micra. I'm about 6 ft and I can't even fit in one.
