    1st person I consulted when I looked at getting my 1st car was Daddy :)

    Daddy said "talk to your sister" :p :cool: She's on her second car (I've still got my first) and she bartered with the garage for a good part exchange and a bargain both times. Dad has company cars so, by his own admission, is no good at bartering and sales patter ;) Am waiting for sis to reply to my txt... *drums fingers on table*

    lol I have since learnt that I know more about cars than my Dad :rotfl:so we make our own mind up now (with a quick check with ILs on their very reasonable interest free loans ;))

    We keep looking at the picaso but then OH remembers that I would definitely bump such a big car parking it and that I'd want to fill the seats with more babies so changes his mind :p

    It is a very nice car :p and I haven't managed to hit anything when parking it in almost 3 years. :T
    (OH has managed to hit a cyclist in it - no, the cyclist hit him. :eek:)

    OH did say when we got it though, that just because we have 7 seats, I DO NOT need to fill them. (This was a year before V was on her way :D) I only need a set of twins now to fill it.

    We're thinking about going smaller this year, the one before this was a 5 door astra which I liked, but anyone with more than two children, can you comfortably fit a car seat and two boosters in the back of a normal sized family car? (Although DS probably doesn't need the booster now, he's almost as tall as me!). :eek:

    Yup.. It's a 03 Fiesta Zetec 1.4 5dr (mine is a 03 Fiesta LX 1.25 3dr) :)
  • Thats a point, when/if I learn to drive I'll have to get a whole new seat, I don't think Toby's current one will fit in the back!

    I keep trying to persuade OH to let me sell my car and learn to drive an automatic, but he thinks I should drive a manual. I'm not keen though.
