Okay, i feel like im faced with a dilemma...
i bought my 5 door astra as i thought it would be good for getting all my band stuff in the car, which it was okay... a little smaller than anticipated, anyways, my point is, im getting a boot instll in the car, and there will be next to no boot space left, and i cant get to the tyre well.
so now im considering a second car for my band stuff and work on my astra, to get it how i want.
im considering an astra van... beside the fact i dont know if my parents would let me keep another car on thier drive, i need to know some ball park figures i could expect to pay on a second car...
im thinking a 1.7dti astra van... there will be no modifications, but i have 0 ncb even on my main car, i only started driving this year, so i need some kind of idea what i would expect to pay on the van... what else would i need to take into consideration for costs of a second car?
tax, insurance, mot, yearly service... am i missing anything?
if i could get it fairly cheap for a second car i might consider it, although it seems like alot of bother...
at points like this i wish i had a company car or just didnt have my astra, and didnt want to mod it.
would it be cheaper to do this when i have 1 year ncb and im 21 (later this year - hopefully).
what are my options?
the reason im worried is i might be able to get all my gear in my astra, but i will have nowhere for a spare wheel, not even the back seats when i have my guitar stuff in the boot.
i will have tyre weld for shorter journeys, but longer ones i want to be able to chuck the spare on the back seats... which i wont be able to do with guitar stuff in, so this is why im thinking a second car as a van might be the way to go, but i dont want to have to pay stupid amounts for it.
argh... dilemmas all the time.
