brilliant car

i used this car for 6 years and it has been fabulous, i'm a 25 year old and this was my first car and i'm very happy with the car as it handled well and was cheap to use and maintain. nothing went wrong except wear and tear with services from independent dealers. I'm very happy with the car but sadly now i need a bigger car with more power. don't get me wrong this car is really quick but i want something even faster.
i drive this thing every where and now it has 110,000 miles and still drives OK, honestly this car is amazing when overtaking as the engine has good torque.
however due to its age the gearbox is slow to shift compared to the newer cars. and road tax is 250 so you might want to tax it monthly. but insurance on the other hand is cheap and maintenance cost is OK.
