    Now we are all here because we are beetle fans, but what would you drive if you had to get something more practical or just a change.
    I will be keeping my bug for as long as i can but the wife wants a change and has seen a very nice passat cc, so her bug may be going soon.

    Depends what I needed.

    I have to say I love driving my Defender so a new Puma engined CSW for ferrying the family round, or if I had a load more money a new Range Rover Sport.

    If I needed a 4 door car and money was no object I'd have a Porsche Panamera.

    Hmm I'm not sure. Wouldn't mind a Porsche (who wouldn't?!), or something like a Mustang - that would be pretty cool!

    Although, as 2 of my Newbies are work cars, I'd probably have something like a DS3 or A1.

    We have 4 cars at the moment. The NB, a 1302 Cabriolet (resto project), a T4 Caravelle, my T3 Syncro camper.

    But I have a hankering for another sportscar so another 911/914 or a Triumph GT6 would be nice.

    Love it! I saw a Daytona one this week and thought it was one of the best colours they do them in. They're such a pretty car.

    Would have to be a T4, would be much more practical than the beetle but sadly I can't afford one right now :( before I bought my bug we looked at a Nissan note, glad I persuaded hubby into getting the beetle instead.
