New car!

After owning my Audi A4 for 3.5 years, it was time for a change. With the arrival of Dog #2 it was a bit of a squeeze in the back of Steph’s Polo for the two of them, so I needed a car with a bigger boot.

After just 4 days on Autotrader, my Audi was gone…a sad day indeed. But just a few days later and I’ve got my replacement. I would have liked an Audi A3 Sportback or even the Volvo V50, but I just can’t justify it really so I went for a top of the line (except the ST as I really don’t want a 20mpg, group 20 insurance car) year and a half old Focus…which works out a hell of a lot cheaper than the A3 of V50 (unsurprisingly).

Focus

So far I’m really happy with it, it drives surprisingly well, the 2.0 turbo diesel really flies and it handles brilliantly. I must admit that I do miss the refinement of the Audi, but I don’t think I’ll miss it in the long run. Now I just have to see if I can get the dogs in the back!
