I'm not into flying round corners - that's why I like the C5.

If you fly round corners up here every likelyhood you will plough into something agricultural, arboricultural or equestrian.

I'm going to be boring but this is what I'd go for, a late low mileage Nissan Note, seems to have all that's needed, low or zero road tax (depending on model) comfortable, long warranty and some huge unproblematic miles on some of those on offer.

The 1.5 diesel would be (may still be) my choice.

Sorry but not in my sights at all, they are too ugly for words. The only 'Nissan' I would contemplate is an Infiniti Q60 (had to look it up, couldn't remember the name).
All the rest are just horrible.

They're transport Steve not decoration for the driveway. :-D

All the good looking cars went out the window when Brits decided that German and Japanese was the way to go.

True enough but there are degrees of ugliness.
I will admit though that I am not fond of the looks of the Civic.

A bit dear for a Mk1, I paid less than that for one of my X7 estates 104k miles.

Yes, it’s hilariously overpriced. £800 tops is what one of those is worth these days.
