Hi, congrats on new website, hope it works well. I'm looking to change an '05 Toyota Rav 4 for a 7 seater, but don't want a boring looking rectangle type car! Any ideas for a decent 7 seater that looks good as well, maybe '07/'08, max spend €15k. Thanks.

I've seen very few few on the roads and cannot find a test drive report on it. Do you have any info on this car please?
My budget is up to €20,000 as well as the scrappage allowance.

Hello, I drive a 2008 1.3-litre diesel Astra with a six-speed gearbox on a fairly normal driving pattern: start, stop, traffic-jams etc. and M50 motorway driving (in which I use the cruise control). What sort of fuel economy should I expect?

I have a E39 BMW 5-Series. The car seat is basic and quite uncomfortable for me. I am quite heavy. Is there any budget options out there for seat replacement?
I have an 2008 Volkswagen Passat 1.4 TSi petrol that I find excellent. Is there any indication from VW about turbo petrol engines in the new Passat due at the end of year?
More generally do you think turbo petrols will be a growth area?
I think they are excellent alternative to diesel which a lot of people are buying on dealers recommendation without being fully convinced of, with regard to smooth power delivery?

Thanks for your reply to my previous query regarding a recommendation of buying under scrappage. I test drove the Fabia today and was impressed. I would love to know the exact model you refer to. Is it 60- or 70hp and is it Classic or Ambiente?

I'm interested in buying a new Kia Rio, diesel, using the scrappage deal. What is the best price I should expect to get? And would I be better dealing with a main Kia dealer as opposed to an Opel dealer? The main dealer is a 40-minute drive from me.

I am buying under the scrappage scheme. Which of the following would you recommend: Skoda Fabia, Ford Ka, Hyundai i10 or Renault Clio?
My budget is €10,000 and I want something that will last another 10 years! Most of my driving is around town but I don't want anything tiny!!
