I sometimes HAVE to use the works BMW 325 Touring (not sure what E number it is, itsmon a "64" plate) but it has an absolutely horrendous interior-in particular the hard plastic steering wheel, which the one on my 1994 Citroen AX put to shame.

F31. The E's have long gone.

 

They all have leather rim wheels, even SE base models.

Well, our F31 has no leather on the steering wheel. It really feels awful-horribly textured, hard, cheap plastic that doesn't reflect the brand that they have built. I would defy anyone to say it feels good.

I was in a 12 plate 320d the other day (Uber) with cloth seats and proper base model trim - only ever seen leather in them even in rentals.

Wasn’t very inviting!

I'll get a photo of it. I doubt that someone has swapped the steering wheel f from their personal car for the one out of this. Happened on our V6 Vectra SRi when someone took the Irmscher rear exhaust box off of it and swapped it for a cheap 1.6 exhaust box. I've remembered now that it was a nice car-abused from day one for 120,000 miles with no trouble before it got sold off.

Possibly but petrol might put them off, maybe. It's worth £2900 fixed as a Cat S so it needs to be bought, fixed and on the road for £1800. Black doors should be common enough.

Just seen another chocolate Mokka looking very nice - a brown interior too in what looked like leather. So brown is back? It's taken 40 years.

As above, there does seem to be a lot of Mokkas about. The Vivas have clearly risen rapidly in price, the salesman I got mine off did say at the time they were going up £500 very soon after, and clearly they’ve gone much higher than that now.

Finance on the scooter is up next year I think, once paid for I might buy a new Corsa.

I like Saabs - basically Vauxhall's underneath, but just feel much different, even that little bit special. Didn't stop them going out of business though. 

 

 

Wasn't that because they took a Vectra, said "this doesn't meet the Saab standard", then totally redesigned it! Cost GM millions by doing that so they pulled the plug. My 93 sport wagon drives nothing like a 1.9TiD Vectra estate.

 

Saabs always sold, could easily have been the premium end of the market for GM, took most of Saab's tweaks and improvements, especially the handling, over into the Vaux/Opel range and kept Chevy/Gaywoo as the Dacia level brand.

abused from day one for 120,000 miles with no trouble before it got sold off. 

 

Why would anyone in his right mind sell a car that gives no trouble?

Oh wait. This forum, innitt?

Didn't mind the Vectra C interior one bit apart from those phenomenally stupid indicators. What the fuck were they thinking. 

 the  canbus  double push  ones ... 

drove a  corsa with them in 02  when it was new thought they  were crap ,  i'm now driving an 09 corsa that has them and  in a coupel of weeks i got used to it
