Rolling Rolling Rolling....

So what's new in Greg Land I hear you ask?

Not a lot, sad to say. I'm still waiting on the paperwork from the council for my new job. Fun the waiting game isn't it? Yeah, right...

However, I WILL need transport to my new job (when it finally starts). It was with this in mind that I set forth last weekend on a Great Car Expedition. Pretty much to see what I'd fit into... because I wanted a small car you see.

Now as many of my friends on here are American they are probably going "Small car? No problem! why I can fit a small rhino in the boot of my small car and still have room for the barbequeue to cook it on!" Well yes, thats all well and good in a land that has lanes as wide as some of our roads, but in europe we have a slightly different definition of a small car.

Namely that it should be small.

Anyhow, with our micro, mini, super-mini, and the standard compact class.. there are quite a few small cars to choose from. The main reason I wanted a small car was for insurance reasons - smaller engine, less expensive, cheaper to insure. However I also just wanted one because, well, it was smaller. I was never too happy with the Rover (RIP) because it was, while nice, a squat fat car that was pretty large - especially for UK roads.

So what car to go for?

Well we (myself and the parents) looked around all the usual suspects - Peugeot, Vauxhall, Renault, Daewoo, Nissan, Fiat, Kia.. etc etc and the one that eventually won out was... Nissan, with their new Micra. Click that link to see the details of the  model I'm getting, or just look below to see it in its "Aruba Blue"  Pearlescent metalic paint glory:

Pretty isn't it?

That got into the garage today, and I probably won't be able to pick it up till monday, damnit. Guess I have to play the waiting game again for a bit more...
