A TML Manager told me yesterday that Xenon might be on street by Oct 2008. Its currently undergoing street trials.

since i am driving a Safari as of now, budget permitting, my next logical upgrade would be the next gen Safari (if it is substantially better than the present one) or a Ford endeavour

I am definitely going back to hatches, the Civic falls short of being a perfect car in just the area where I want a car to be that much more perfect - its suspension.

Can't upgrade the suspension yet due to budget constraints and looking a the fuel prices , a diesel will score on both counts - economy and running costs, not to mention the torque.

Might hang to the Indica (my first car) and get a Polo diesel (got high hopes on it) in 2010 when the Civic's lease expires.

I'm buying a fiesta soon but the car that I always wanted to buy is an Amby. So that will be the next one for sure (hopefully HM will not stop production by then or I will buy a really old one and restore it)

A swift D! I would have already bought it, if it weren't for the horrible rattling stories, and also if they had launched a ZDi version!!

Driving a Swift VXi just 9 months old, so I am fine for next 3-4 years. Next car will be a powerful sedan in 10L+ range. Probably a Mitsu Lancer Mivec (love this car) or equivalent. And a cheap small hatch to save fuel .
