New car wanted

Postby Fabio » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:20 pm

Howzit gents, been prowling the forum for a couple of years now and looking for some guidance on my next purchase.

I need to get myself a car as the wifey and I have been in the states for a while and upon our return we acquired her a Fortuner, fortunately family car is sorted and it was time to get myself a lil toy.

Ended up buying a 2011 Polo Gti, but had endless issues with it and finally returned the vehicle today.

Back in the market again and considering:
Fiesta ST
Focus ST
Golf GTI
Toyota 86
Corsa OPC
Astra OPC
Juke 1.6T
MPS

Budget is around R150k-R200k.

Need it as a daily and also enjoy it a lot.

Any recommendations will be highly appreciated.

Ciao
Nico

I agree , 'ST'180 is best value for money at that price point with a lekker big aftermarket if you feel like tinkering .

Now there is a name I haven't seen in a while!!
Welkom terug maat!
Gaan kyk op Facebook na die King of 1/4mile results. Dink ST180 is beste tussen die lot. Goedkoop genoeg, lig op sous en vinnig as jy hom so bietjie werk.
1964 Ford Anglia 997cc
1972 Ford Capri 3000GT
1994 Ford Escort Cosworth (replica)
1996 Ford Escort 1.6 (plus VAT)

There is a 2012 S60 T6 R-design AWD gear tronic for sale in that price bracket.
242KW makes it a great daily as well as loads of fun to drive.

Goes back to Volvo on Monday if she cant find a new home before then.

Dankie manne.

Had a look at the ST180, might just be rotten luck, however, everytime I phone car has been sold. Lol

On that note, anyone that can point me in the direction of a decent buy?

History has proven that I am too impulsive.

Regards
Nico
