In article <>, says... >Does she drive? If she does, then your choice of car will of course be >affected by that. If not, then give her the best you can for the money you >have. The right 9000 Anni/Aero would make for a very comfortable, "posh" and >plush car. Yes she drives. But she started with her mums K10 Micra. Then she bought her own 1.1 Metro, then she had a 1.2 Corsa Breeze, now she has a 1.4 Skoda Fabia (with my assistance). Slowly but surely her cars and engines are getting bigger. But she mush prefers small newish cars than long flat older ones. She even said the C900 was very square. >My Debo begs for us to drive the C900 on long journeys - she says it's the >most comfortable car she's ever been in. I do find that a little difficult >to believe, since my Orca is lowered and has hard suspension and >wheelie-pulling torque, but she finds it a sleeper on long journeys! I've >only ever been in the passenger seat (or rear seats) when I've been to >p*ssed to drive and in that state, it's pretty *uncomfortable* - apart from >opening the rear window and listening to the exhaust :) Alison drove mine once, when I sliced my hand open. Didn't like it. Said it was too big to manouvre anywhere. And even with the early seats swung up on their highest setting (the old cam ones not the 9000 like ones) the seat was too high and the steering wheel was too big. >My Mum raves on about SAAB seats; so much so, I almost bought them the >interior from a 9000 off e-Bay, but they bought a Daimler around the same >time which is the most comfortable car *I've* ever been in. I would love to turn a full set of 9000 seats in leather into a 3 piece suite. Anniversary if possible, then I could get the electric adjust. Just need a frame and a couple of spare arm rests to make the rears into a Sofa. Could do a couple of extra on taller bases for the computer room too. >It seems both an obvious choice and a very difficult choice to make - the >9000 is the right car. I'm sure of that. You love it ... Just get the right >one to make a believer of your good lady. What about the CD model? I fancy >the longer boot makes for a more conventional looking car. Just my "couple >of coppers" :) It was a CD we had a a courtesy loaner, the only thing she really liked was the heated seats, once she had gotten over the idea that she hadn't pissed herself. -- Carl Robson Car PC Build starts again.
