    New car ideas???

    Hey people

    Im starting to get bored of my car now....had it a year and a half and had my fun and now im getting bored.....been thinking about it for a while and think now is the time to start looking, also theres more popping up looking like mine so its losing its individuality .

    I have been searching around pistonheads and autotrader to see what things catch my eye and basically I want something :-

    1) Comfortable
    2) No 2 seaters
    3) Reliable as its used as a everyday car
    4) Lowish miles
    5) Something that still stands out abit


    So any suggestions??

    I know this is a vauxhall site but feel free to suggest anything.

    golf gti, honda civic type r, focus ST, mazda rx8 or mazda 3 mps, just stay german or japenese for reliability imo
    and all these cars listed move pretty quick and can be made quicker! it really depends what ya budget is!!

    Not really a big fan of the new Golf GTI....would have a mk4 but most of them are high milers or been abused.

    Been considering Focus ST & Astra VXR....on my shortlist

    Had a RX8 before and with the miles I do theres no chance of me running it everyday.....soooooo expensive.

    Havent really looked into the Mazda 3 but know they are quick.

    I was probably thinking of going up to 13k most.....dont mind getting a loan or finance on a year or 2 old car if its got all the stuff I want.

    The VXR and ST are pretty safe bets, I wouldn't recommend a mk 4 golf though, me an my buddies refer to those as the mk bore as they all look the same until you get to the r32!

    After hearing a type R on the rolling road yesterday, I want one lol.

    Probably not very comfy with bucket seats and not the best for day to day driving from what I have heard though
