I knew it was a Seat because of the big badge on the back, had to google which one.  Apparently a Leon estate, sometimes seems to be an Exeo?  Anyway, the one I spotted today was in this fabulous turquoise metallic with not-stupid wheels and just looked really nice.  It's one of those cars where all the photographs make it look like a knock-off Audi while in person it's quite a smart bit of design.  Anway, I didn't know they existed until today, so here we are.

Its a leon estate, my daughter has a 15 plate one the exact colour as that one. It had those wheels o it until I wrote off my leon so she took my nicer 17" wheels which had new tyres on and those wheels went away on my write off.

An Exeo is a rebadged Audi A4 with a different front end.

Exactly the same.

 

Generally obtained by sponging morons cashing in on grandmas/fraudulently obtained Motability allowance.

 

I work at an all Vauxhalls are Shit dealership, and we have a queue of the above waiting for Grandlands.

Yes we've had it before and I made a wisecrack along the lines of 'in 10 years time it'll be called the Poundland'.

 

As it has made a re-appearance may I be permitted to make the following wisecrack?

 

Grandland?

I had no idea that these existed until I saw this photo in the Jury Service thread.

 

Girlfriend's dad had a Taunus though.  He really wanted a Mustang but could never have got away with it.

Ironically he was the town's Ford dealer until he sold the business to his brother.

An American oddity, why do things like this get imported to this country?

The epitome of US styling, the 1990  Chevrolet Corsica.

Fortunately at $800.00 asking the owner should lose money  :-(

They normally arrive via American military service people who bring them to their base I've found, I used to see a lot of old USA stuff around air bases back in the 90's.

American bases are NOT PERMITTED in this country, they got told to f off years ago . They got upset for a while.

That Chev will have been imported by someone who fell in love with the styling. His wife has probably withdrawn services until it has gone from the driveway. ;-)

I understand that technically the USA dosen't have any bases of it's own in the UK anymore - they're all became RAF properties but almost exclusively used by the USA. RAF Lakenheath is the only one from which the USAF still flies, but, for example, the massive spying operation at Menwith Hill (RAF Menwith Hill) is still going strong. There is no attempt at keeping the secret...

It was supposed to be £38k, but they lopped £5k off after launch.
