Situation - My girlfriend is 19 and has just quit uni [B)] and started a full time job [:D]. Shes on reasonable money and has got about ?10k to spend on a car. Shes got 2 years no claims and a car worth about ?1000 to part ex?..

She would like a cabriolet with room in the back for her friends?

What would you go for and what are the main competitors?

I've tried to push her in the way of the Beetle 1.8T or the Mini?

Is there any other car ive overlooked? a C3 maybe?

Would the 1.8T be too expensive on insurance?

I deffo dont want to take her down the 206cc or citroen route if i can help it!

The A4 would be a little bit on the big size for her and I think the 306 might be a little outdated although I agree it is nice!

Is there nothing similar in size or price to the beetle?

A golf cab lol!

I dont know why that hadn't crossed my mind! I'll put that one forward to her later but i think the Beetle will come out on top in that battle as the 1.8T engine is just far better!

I've just been searching through autotrader and theres nothing really!

A mini and a beetle are at right at the top of her budget i think she'd be very lucky to get a mini under 14k.

Surely theres a gap in the market for a 4 seater girly cabriolet!

A polo cabriolet would have been perfect!

I'd love her to get a beetle!! But try talking cars to her!!

Complete pain in the bum!

Im going to reccomend a mgf in a minute if she doesnt stop dragging this out!

There is something wrong with every car we look at!!

"Oooh I didnt like the air freshener in that car"

"I wasnt keen on the beeping sound when you locked the car!"

Arrrrrrgh! Just buy a bloody car!!!!!!

I know buddy so would I but shes annoying me that much that I will reccomend an MGF next time we go to a garage!

I hope the head gasket goes and she has to fork out alot of money!!!

I'll probably regret saying that tomorrow but shes nagging and whining at the mo and comopletely doing my head in!!

If she wasn't so damn gorgeous she'd have been given the boot!

"WOMEN!!!"

cant live with em.... cant live without them...
