Even at that it'd be a sight cheaper to own overall than a £15k car. Don't fancy the fuel costs or insurance though..... Personally, I think the Peugot 308SW 1.6 110 eHDI is an ideal 2nd hand buy since the new model came out, and the late 507 or 508 with high miles are great value too, falling into the £6k-£7k bracket for the 508 with some haggling. How anyone defines Prestige is arguable though. BMW are a prestige brand, for sure, and Minis are certainly not as common as Ford Fiestas.
