right ive always got 2>3 cars one for best (the zed :angel: ) and one to run round in (td mondeo) and one to sell . i wont to change the Mondeo which i use for shopping and things . now the mondeo is nice , its lowered 80mm and has 17" five spokes on its very clean and debadged, but it has to go , ive got £6 >£7k to spend on a replacement ,

Question is wot should i get , i like 4x4s(as a second car) and have seen a very nice fat boy vitara by me on a R reg mint £5.5 k and it looks the nuts and its silver like the zed , anyone got any ideas , thought of a scooby doo to ;) insurance isnt a problem so im just stuck for ideads.

There's a very nice Honda CR-V round by me, black, tints, aloys, lowered, de-badged etc.. might be worth considering, certainly over a vitara.. :zip:

i read and herd on a Car TV programme (quentin wilson i think) that the steering gets boll*ck'd when u take it near a speed bump, not too sure what it was tho... it i'll be in the tinternet somewhere..... personally, 4 what u want to do... Jeep Cheeroke 2.5TD Limited.... had one as a T-Reg and its awesome on and off road ability.... plus u never see any done up... u could be the first !

If you want a phat boy 4*4 go for a Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution. it has the 3.5l V6 out of the FTO with the MIVEC head, 280bhp and looks like it has just come in from the Dakar!

If you want the Vitara then go for it!! I had an L-reg fat boy - bright red, loads of chrome & huge wheels - looked mint!!! Got rid of it cause I couldn't keep it going with petrol at the time lol! :cool1:

I had a 1.6 phat boy convertable, cool in the summer freakin cold in the winter, looks the muts nuts, but i got fed up with the "all show no go" situation. I say get a mitsu 'animal' crew cab... with all the bling.

For 8K how about a nissan x trail? they are the best 4x4

Or a subaru forester ?

I first thought you meant something silly like a caterham!

what about a toyota rav-4? my mum had one of the original shapes, and the 2.0 litre is pretty nippy, handles well all things considering, and they have room for 20" s under the arches, theres a well nice piccy of a black one on project kahn's website, plus it'l run pretty much for ever, and they quite cheap to now i think!
