Car boredom

June 22, 2006

At the start of the year I sold my pride and joy, a Nissan Skyline (see pic below).

I replaced it with what I thought was a practical alternative (cheaper to run) but that would still be fun and inspiring to drive, a Civic Type R. All the reviews I’d read on the Civic were great and said it was a real drivers car. Having had it for nearly six months I’d have to disagree!

It’s not inspiring to drive, it feels small, bouncy and slightly unstable at higher speeds so I’m going to change again.

I’m considering a Subaru Impreza WRX as an alternative, it would seem a good compromise as it’s a smaller engine than the Skyline, slightly better fuel consumption and 4wd (so safer in the winter). Now just need to find a good one!!
