Out of that list... GTI

 

Having dealt with so many corolla's at toyota, the build quality didnt seem up to the over the top price tag.

86 is just boring.... and i hope you dont plan on putting weight on at the gym, or it will become very uncomfortable

The money also usually is meant to cover fuel, Tyres, insurance, rego, etc. Are they paying uou the 25k straight up? Also normally its in monthly installments and not a lump sum payment.

you can also claim part of the cars depreciation also, so realistically you could be looking at a ~$60k car

Edit- just read first post again. Just seems weird they give you $25k upfront and still pay for everything

I will be meeting with the accounts manager on the 7th October but from my initial meeting with my one up, he said insurance and rego is covered and I will get a company credit card for fuel and work expenses.

haha as much as I would love a 205, it would be sad the amount of km I'll be putting on it as it will be driven a lot. I will be visiting clients all over brisbane and surrounding cities.

That would give you a reason to buy a daily ST165...

You're getting your fuel paid for??? That's like an open cheque book. See if you can find a restored sandman panelvan or Bedford van with a LS3 conversion. It will be like a work Christmas party every day!

its a 135i

 

rwd, straight 6, twin turbo

 

does the job from getting from A to B, thats all the really need for work.

 

wheels are 19x9 front and 19x10 rear.(not sure of offset but the rear has a little poke.) vinyl wrapped roof, blacked out mirrors and blacked out kidney grills.

 

The gt4 is still more fun to drive.
