Pics of my new car!

My new 2005 plate Renault Clio 1.2 Expression (75) 16V

Picked her up on Saturday, Auto windows, Auto wing mirrors, Radio steering wheel stalk, ABS, Power Steering, Sunroof, Driver and passenger airbags, Central locking, Key fob to open and lock, alarm, immobiliser, CD player etc etc

Lots of mod cons Although most of them wont impress some of you, i had a 96 fiat punto that was dying before i got this so to me this is like brand new!

So happy

Anyway, heres the pics!

And a 4 hour car journey for some alloys with little tread doesnt seem worth it

Sounds like you've been absolutely ripped off, no wonder you don't want to talk about it.

Carcraft offer desperate people expensive finance then find a car to go with it. You are probably paying, over the duration of your agreement, many times more than the value of the car.

The interest is high, but it obviously would be, but this will last 2-3 years im thinking, then ill peobably do a part ex for a newer car, but at the moment, im paying nothing out, im 19 and im driving a nice car! Thats all im bothered about, i dont think about money.. I think about happiness and this does the job!

Im paying alot but im on the credit ladder now finally after a huge struggle because of fraudsters!

Im happy!

If it's "only money" then kudos to you, you must be awfully wealthy .

Meh, im on a nice wage, so i dont mind paying out, if i strggled with money then i wouldnt have but id like to think i can hangle this comfortably.

You only live once, id rather get what i want then suffer, im just gonna be paying out for it for 5 years which is only the downfall but atleast ive got a car! No problems with transport now hopeflly! My Punto was on its way out.

No, you are 19, you've shacked yourself up with a really really bad loan with horrific interest, and you are driving a bottom of the range generic Clio.

Had you done some research first, or perhaps asked advice from others, you could have been driving an actually nice car - perhaps a better Clio if Clios are what you like - and paying perhaps THOUSANDS less for it.

Companies offering ripoff finance for crap cars prey on people like you. You can't go through life with that attitude or you'll end in a mountain of debt to finance the purchase of a load of material junk.

No you wont - you are in massive negative equity, the car is worth considerably less than you owe on it, so you cant get rid of the car without being left with a huge loan and no car?

170 x 60 months is 10,200 - 10k on a 4 year old base model Clio. By using your brain a BRAND NEW Clio costs less than that.

And the funny thing is despite this complete and utter failure I guarantee somebody from the OcUK OMG ITS HIS MONEY squad will be along to tell us we are all nasty and that he obviously knows what he's doing..

You'll still be paying 170 a month when its a crappy 8 year old 1.2 Clio thats falling to bits!

Please tell me you didn't pay over 3k for it.

It's not really a 'nice car' is it? It's a cheap first car that wasn't cheap, nor was it your first car.

Good way to put a downer on things but ive thought about it, i know how much im paying, i know much much less i could have got it, but then how much harder would it have been to get it.

I wont be getting any more finance theres no reason to and the only reason i would is for a car or a house..

Meh its expensive and its not the best Clio around but its what i want and im happy, i thought about it before i signed the paper work, i thought about how long my apoprenticeship is, how long itll be before i decide to more out etc etc n thought "why not"..

I work loads and i feel like i get nothing from it, 2 jobs and an apprenticeship, a full day at col (9 til 7) and i just wanted to work towards something and here it is

Now enough about that as i just want to focus on my car

of all the places to go and buy a car

To those in the know... what are the early repayment penalties on these type of finance deals?

If he's intending to save and pay it off sooner than the full term, assuming the penalty isn't too severe, it might not be quite as daft as it first appears .

We cant really focus on your car because quite frankly, its rubbish. I mean look at it, its a bottom of the range Clio with no kit and crappy wheel trims. I'm not normally one to rain on people with crud cars because hey not everyone can afford a decent car but you've just spend nearly ten thousand quid on a 2005 Clio so frankly whats the point in putting sugar coating on it?

This is a candidate for the biggest EPIC FAIL of 2009. Infact you can tell its a huge amount of FAIL because nobody has come in here to flame me for being nasty yet and that normally happens within 10 minutes of me not being complimentry about somebodies finance deal. Heck even Gajin isnt telling me to pipe down.

Seriously, what on earth are you thinking!? What part of your brain told you this was a good idea?

Would this have been worse? With the Punto as scrap?

Ok, it's a bit ugly in my opinion, but...
