    Hey all!
    So some of you will remember my post a few weeks back about the crash that wrote my car off (boo!) *R.i.p Katie Ka!*
    - leaving me off the road for a few weeks and in desperado need of a new car.
    Some of you will also remember my rant about natwest (grr! lol) So as it is, we didn't take a loan out, and have had to dig deep, work hard and pull what we can together!

    I'm officially back on the road..
    Meet Clio-Patra! :D
    Shes a Renault clio, 1.2 dynamique in silver. Alloy wheels, cd player, electric mirrors, windows, central locking, black interior, sunroof.. full service history, 1 owner 72000 miles on a 52 plate. For £2690 a fair bit better than the £4000+ we were looking at for the citroen c2 i'd had my heart set on :(

    But i'm super pleased.. !!!

    What do you think?

    I feel i should embelish eves post lol...

    Wrote off our Civic around 3 weeks ago hit a patch of oil on the road exiting the M74 :( ( we think )

    Soooo we decided ( ok I decided ) we needed a bigger car what with children and grannies you need that extra boot space lolol....

    After much messin around by Arnold Clark we finaly wen to Evans Halshaw and bought a Mondeo Estate Ghia x a car and a half luxury personified with leather interior and all the flashing shiny bits i could go on like our clio owner and post spec ...ohhh ok

    2.0 ltr TDCi turbo
    Full electric kit if you wanna adjust it just press push or pull a lever or button
    Air Con rapid demist ( 12 Secs )
    front defrost heated windscreen
    6CD Sony blah de blah
    Electric front and rear windows

    I could go on but wont...

    4 hours after driving it from the showroom ( 5 grand lighter in the pocket ) the electrics began failing :(
    Turns out it needs a new instrument cluster whatever that is...

    Not bad for 4 hours of ownership :(

    xxx

    The joys of motoring :)

    Leanee89, oo i do like your car.. im not a fan of yellow but i likes. :)
    i would have loved an 09 plate c2 on finance, or a 2006 model .. but for now this was our best option as moving out and saving for a mortgage is our priority really.


    glad you like clio-patra, i thought the name was fab, my wifey thought it up!! lol

    - p.s i always drive safley, she drove into me, not the other way round!!! LOL
