Some of you will have seen my thread on friday as per below:
The general opinion from you guys was that itll be a write off
If so ill be looking at getting a new motor sharpish. Ill push for £2500 minimum from the insurance company as it had the full leather pack and was in A1 condition as I bloody well looked after that car and made sure it was in superb condition.
I have looked around my area and there arent too many decent coupes for around that amount of money.
The only one id be tempted to go for is a 2.2i SE2 with blue alacantra interior. Its on for £2990 with 84 k on the clock.
Other options I have looked at:
1999 VW Golf 1.8 T GTI (150BHP) - £2500, 100k, FSH, Recaro Seats, Black
2001 VW Golf 1.8 GTI (125BHP) - £2095, 68k, FSH, Blue
1997 Audi A3 1.8 T Sport - £2650, 90k, FSH, Met Blue
2000 BMW 3 Series 318i (147BHP) - £2495, 74k, FSH, Silver
I considered a turbo but cost is an issue when choosing a new motor. I want to have similar ish power to my 2.2 but I cant go above it in terms of cost (Tax, petrol) as I am on the verge of buying my first house so have budgetted for having my 2.2 coupe in terms of running / repair / insurance costs.
Any other sensible options people? Cant really put any money towards either if I get £2500 if my coupe is a write off.
