Thanks for your views Horatio, i'll def stay away from the 8 valver then

I'll been round a few garages today, i've looked at 2 1.2's and a 1.6. I took a 1.2 billabong out and yeah it wasn't bad at all. It felt nippy rather than quick, but hey if i wanted a quick car i wouldn't be looking at a 1.2. I couldn't take the 1.6 out which was a dyna + and very will spec'd too, Sat nav climate etc

So what are the 1.6's like this one was the same price as newer 1.2 expression with the same miles but a little bit older. I am tempted by the 1.6, but is the mpg alot worse? After all i'm suppoesed to be buying a cheaper car to run

Currently in Ad.'s garage:
2002 Renault Laguna Estate + 2003 Renault Clio 1.5 Dci (80) Soon to be chipped! ;)
