Having ideas of changing the rallye as the daily car...

Ideally looking for something which can easily achieve 40mpg and capable of 60+ mpg on a good run.

Have a budget of around 3000

So far I have looked at:

306 Diesels
Citroen C2 1.4 HDi
Fiesta HDi range
Fiat grande Punto

I would also consider a small car based van, or small van. Nothing bigger than a Renualt Traffic for example

Anyone spotted a car for me locally?

Been checking ebay and autotrader, watching a few things but nothing really grabbed me yet.

Budget 3000

> 2001 in the cheaper tax brackets

60mpg +

<80000 miles

So far the corsa 1.3 CDi is what tickles the fancy

Guy from work was up at bsa car auctions in Newport last Thursday and saw a 1.4 HDI 207 with 49k on clock go through for 3800, a trip up there 1 Thursday to whats going through maybe an idea, that 207 is only 68bhp but 30 a year tax and 65-70 mpg so just the ticket Smile

F/O/S wing is different colour and front bumper not lining up along with the bonnet i'd say its had a front ender and repaired badly but as long as steering, suspension and chassis are ok its all points to knock him down plus plates are illegal and rear lamps should be made illegal Laughing

If it can be got cheap enough some cyclones and standard rear lamps then tidy the front panels it will be a tidy motor
