When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

My neighbour has that Aston (or similar - I can't tell them apart these days!) but it's a coupe - a something or other 'S' in the same colour. Sounds like a Formula 1 car when he goes out!

Yes - I own the car I always wanted.  Sure an R8 would be nice, but I am happy with my Golf (and it drives better than an Audi of course! lol!)

We have a couple of very boring cars.

However, this one I am collecting in 10 days is NOT boring! The photo is the dealer's not mine though, I hasten to add!

joker97: what's the fuel consumption of the Nissan (and what grade of petrol)?


It drinks 95 and I get about 8.25 km/l (23.3mpg) in a combination of around town and semi rural driving. Pure open road is better - up to about 27mpg.

It's the 3.7l V6 with 330ish BHP. Amazing engine, really refined and lovely car to drive.

Cheers - N
