If I ever get a nice car when I repatriate eventually it'll be either the XC60 or the Audi A4 Avant.
I'm going to say it again because I think they deserve it, but the new Volvos are lovely, the interiors especially - good point.

That could easily piss the G63 boys off - if you wanted to.
That may well be the next one.

That Trackhawk looks amazing! I'll take two please! 707 BBHP and 3.3 secs 0-60mph is silly filthy.

Haven't had any insults from you in a while, which means this is a surprise unpleasant treat on a Sunday afternoon.

Tragically little attention was ever paid.

I've settled on the car and already been slaughtered for it.
I was originally asking about buying used or new, but enough mixed opinions to go with my already mixed opinion on the matter so I remain sort of mixed.

Update though, I've got my motor on Dubizzle and interest is slow. Couple of nibbles but no viewings. Only day two though.

Does not matter what you choose at the end of the day as long as your happy with it, but you know that a lot of people will comment on here as to what they think of your decision, some genuinely interested, some taking the piss, and others that just are retarded!!

Oh mate, I don't care. Half of what's said on here is clearly false ego and bullshit anyway.

Regardless, my ultimate choice is being limited anyway as the availability of used versions of the one I want are very limited.

Now to decide whether to just buy the new one whilst waiting for old car to sell or wait, see if used comes in whilst old is on the market.

Latter sounds more sensible.

Deffo the second option. Never buy until you have sold. I just made that mistake.

Obviously this car crash of words needed a few reads to understand the meaning, but **** me, you're spot on.

Yeah. My motivation to return my hire car when I bought this one was 5 weeks.

Motivation to sell mine if I have a new one will be almost **** all.

Oh I don't care, I give more than enough opinions on here for others to ignore / agree with / disagree with. It is what it is.
