Mazda daily now too.

Post by minisaki » Sun Nov 04, 2018 7:24 pm

So this weekend I decided a 4th car was in order as we simply can't cope with just 3 :roll: :lol:
To put into perspective I have my RX-8 that many of you will know and my lady also has an RX-8, both 8's are simply our hobby and a good weather weekend car. We also have a Clio that we use as a work horse / long distance car being excellent as it's a wee diesel and showing around 60MPG. Earlier in the year my work yard was moved from a 5 min walk away to 11.6 miles. :x #-o Through summer I have been cycling but as temperatures have decided to dip to -5 and starting work in the dark and also finishing work in the dark I decided (mainly from a safety point of view) I also needed 4 wheels for work. The hunt began :roll: I had a very tight budget of 1k and wanted something half decent for it, although when the budget's that small you don't expect much. I was looking around when I remembered one of our own members was selling his first gen Mazda 6, it was over budget but decided to ask what price he'd give me with a "friends and family" discount. I was pleasantly surprised when he said he'd let me have it for 1k. A couple of days later it's mine and I'm pretty happy with the car if I'm honest and well worth 1k. If it does me a few years I'll be happy. :thumleft:
