Don't know if this has been picked up on yet, apparently the same deal was available on the Dodge Avenger a couple of weeks ago: Should be able to get one in 3 years time for about a grand! http://www.broadspee.../kiaspecial.htm

I don't know how they can get away with saying that, it's a 5% discount.

I don't know, I guess the 'list' price is £15 odd grand so you are getting 2 for one but a bit daft when one car can be bought for 45% off.

:shock: I bet they've got minicabbers battering down the doors. This was discussed recently betwixt myself, Mr Seth & Mr Torsten... just HOW cheap could you pick up a brand spanker at the moment... Good time to have some cash & a secure job (of which I have neither)

Of course even with a secure job and cash (Idon't know anyone with either) why would you buy a piece of shit modern car when perfectly good cars can be picked up for what is in effect the price of a reasonable night out....or less! I have not actually driven my modern company car for days now because my autoshite collection is giving me reliable joy!

Well that is a very valid point. Horses for courses really. Though at this time of year the increased likelyhood of a fully operational heater, and a quiet relaxed drive home after a day mooching about some desolate, windswept shit-hole is much moar tempting!

I have to say - its getting to that point in the year now where my 40 mile commute isnt looking quite so rosy on the bike. Sure I can get to work in half the time it takes one of my girls, but i arrive sodden, frozen and developing piles.

I would even love a Rialto so long as it had radio 4 and a working heater.

Is the Landcrab/Princess the only example up to now of a transverse straight 6?

The 6-cylinder S80 makes the Epica the grandson of Landcrab

Apparently that has the world's smallest manual gearbox, just what you want on a straight 6 :roll:

It can't have. The one on my lawn tractor is smaller.
