Just wondered, humour me. Obviously I am a woman or would have namechanged to aboutadam. Anyway I've traded my sensible, practical Honda Jazz in for a Black Mini. Just fancied one. Will I look sexier?

That was not the reason, just had bad luck with the Honda so felt it was jinxed. (silly women) emotion.

depends which mini and what options you have on it

Oh what are options? Help! Its a Mini One. Very slightly higher running cost than the Jazz. Same age, costing the same per month, better finance deal, higher mileage but then I wont increase the mileage much. Just felt the Jazz wasn't me, however it is a great car, and felt like being reckless.

mini i say.

there is absolutely nothing sexy about a mini

really? Neither.

Minis are a bit cute and try hard. Jazz could end up saying money and highlights.

<sweeping generalisations to gazillions of drivers out there grin>

And while I'm making sweeping generalisations....

sexy? depends on what you're going for..

Jag - east end bit a rough chic
lexus - shush secret agent sex
Lamborghini - sharp and pointy city boy sex
Volvo - harrassed parent quick sex

Minis are what 4x4 owners have as second cars.

Fiat 500 is much sexier IMO - especially the very pale blue one...

definately the mini.

round here Jazzes are the preserve of retired gentlemen of a certain age.

I would've just upgraded to a civic tbh.....I had one and it was the best car I've driven and has an OK image.

I don't really think it makes much difference what you drive. Matters more what you're like.

Sexiness is not related to yuor car

if you have had a boob job then yes

you will just be able to fit less in teh boot

i think a sexy car for a woman would be

sorry cant think of one

might have said an old landrover but then thought of parsley and thyme

ClairePO Wed 03-Sep-08 10:14:28

I agree with Anna - the fiat 500's are fab.

Cappuccino Wed 03-Sep-08 10:14:39

you always get a few looks if you are driving a Luton van or a minibus ime

but that is because you are further up I think

still, you take what you can get

WigWamBam Wed 03-Sep-08 10:17:19

How is a small metal box with a wheel on each corner going to make you look sexy?

Get a Wonderbra.

lol at zippi and old landrover

I drove one of those when I was a farming reporter and I can report that they are not sexy

of course where I was driving there was no-one to see but sheep

zippitippitoes Wed 03-Sep-08 10:21:17

a scimitar

I have a real mini, it may not be sexy but it is great fun and I can park it anywhere, new minis are just a bit poncey. (biased)
