my new car!

nothing dranstic or fantastic!
ive had it for about a month now (cliffy knows of it)
me (and my dad) have got ourselves a 2001 Peugeot 307 Rapier (top of the range!)
it has a weedy little 1.6L engine making 110bhp (it has got a little poke!)
32mpg, and this is exactly what it looks like, apart from the black plastic is actually body coloured and the steering wheel is on the right side!)

we did have an MG ZT-190 2.5L V6 which was one hell of a car! (we returned it 2 days later because of insurance, tax and fuel costs! that did 19mpg urban!)
sounded nice too!

Really, 19mpg is considered a lot there? Here it's about average, maybe a bit above average urban.

Congrats on the car though!

no, 19 is considered pretty poor here!

Yeah, but 66% of every gallon you spend on gas goes to taxes (in Canada it is 50%, and in the U.S. it's close to 25%).
