    This month's TG mag has just dropped through my door with the usual season preview, spoilers ahoy!

    The boys take a DS3 Racing, Abarth 500C and RenaultSport Clio around the Riviera, including a lap of Monte Carlo with some guests.
    This was previewed on the F1 coverage.
    Jeremy celebrates the 50th birthday of the E-Type.
    James races the Mini Clubman WRC against Amy Williams on her skeleton bob.
    The MP4-12C is finally let loose on the TG track.
    James drives the Aston Martin Virage.
    Richard meets the Dakar Rally team made up of wounded British military.
    Jag XKR-S vs Nissan GT-R.
    Top Gear builds a train...should be interesting.
    A mystery current F1 driver laps the Liana.
    The boys race some demolition experts to destroy a row of houses.
    Second hand alternatives to Britain's cheapest car, the £6,995 Nissan Pixo.
    Jeremy and James take some electric cars; the Nissan Leaf and Peugeot iOn, to the seaside.
    The BMW 1-M Coupe and Land Rover Evoque are tested.
    And they'll finally show Richard driving the giant armoured thing.

    second hand alternative to £7000 car? easy!

    my £3000 Volvo S40 03 reg (had it for over a year now) is miles better than most cars out there. cruise control, climate control, electric leather seats, and very reliable engine that have never failed to start.

    only spent a bit during last MOT and service to change brake disks and pads. everything else is in top shape.

    my mum got a Peugeot 1007 55 reg second hand, not as comfortable IMHO, but the car had very low mileage and everything is practically new! brake pads needed changing during MOT, but apart from that, the car runs flawless.


    you just get soooo much more of a car when buying second hand. either go for good cars such as Golf/Focus/Astra/(my fav)Alfa Giulietta or buy second hand cars that is just out of their 3 year period. going for cheap Eastern cars is just asking for trouble IMHO.

    I wanted to get one of those, then I remembered that I'm a bloke and under 25 so the insurance company assumes I'm going to go drifting everywhere despite have 4 years no claims (if you include motorbikes ;) ) Ended up getting an 07 Aygo, suprised by how good it is...

    But if insurance wasn't an issue I'd go get a jaguar :p

    im a bloke turning 24 in a few months, 0 year no claim, only £800 for me. cheaper than Golf which i also looked at. also, make of car doesn't mean anything for girls :)

    still, 07 Aygo meaning just finished its 3 year MOT-free period. perfect time to buy one in 2010. good call.
