    If I was in the market for a 3-Series sized car I'd rather buy the Alfa and lose money than the BMW and lose self-respect.

    Haha, that's the true petrolhead talking!

    An interesting sidenote, did you know that BMWs in Britain are now losing money hand over fist? A BMW 318i that's had a couple of options (21,000 new, thereabouts) will be worth 14,000 after one year...

    And the BMW 760Li, as Ferrer correctly stated, is one of the worst-depreciating cars in Britain.

    To be honest I'd rather take a more stylish, individual Alfa Romeo that's already lost a tonne of money (and may make it back as a classic) than a Beemer that WILL lose a tonne of money, and is seen everywhere.

    The BMW 3-Series - Like bottoms, every arsehole's got one.

    AWOOOGA!!!

    The Chevy is gone... replaced by a Corsa 1.2 Twinport.

    I'm personally a great fan of this car, I don't want the Civic back for a while...

    I think it's a much bigger step up.

    Strange how different two cars can be that are made by the same parent company. The car with the older design and supposedly lesser brand values is actually a much better car than the one that's been developed but a couple of years ago and sold to be a 'better' car...

    Well I'm sure you can do better than a Vauxhall Corsa... And the Chevrolet, well bear in mind it's a Daewoo, 'nuff said...

    I just like the Corsa!

    And yeah, it's odd! It looks like a Daewoo... drives like a Daewoo, even smells like a Daewoo... but it's a Chevy.

    I quite like the exterior styling, but the interior... oh my god! There are much better superminis out there...

    Yeah, well, the courtesy car folks don't have anything else (apart from crappy Chevvies...)

    Otherwise, I'd be happy with a... hmm. I don't know.

    Still the Corsa that sticks near the top...

    I lend you some help, you can choose between the following:

    Fiat Grande Punto, Renault Clio, Suzuki Swift or Toyota Yaris.

    I'd honestly take the Corsa. Seriously.

    Unless the offer for a Clio 182 instead of a 1.4 Twinport was on the table...

    Well the Clio V6 is technically a Clio... That first for me then. And if I want to be sensible, a Grande Punto, looks like Maserati, doesn't go like one...

    Until the new Multijet technology arises... 150bhp from a 1.4 naturally aspirated, by my calculations a 2.0 would be able to make 220bhp with natural aspiration...?
