I got fed up with insurance moaning if i tuned my diesel aygo, so i'm thinking of getting a second car. suzuki cappuccino is at the top of my list, but was wondering if there should be any other models i should consider??

Go have a drive in the latest revision of the Copen with the 1.3 engine in it, you`ll be very impressed.

Thanks for your suggestions. I've googled the stats for the car's mentioned. I really really like the shape of the honda beat, but they are so hard to find.

I was very surprised to read that the Cappuccino was about 2 seconds quicker than the Smart roadster Brabus (the price difference is about 5k)

The thing is, I don't really like the Cappucino's shape (a bit too girly). I was sure the Copen 1.3 would be quicker ('cos of the light chassis), but 0-60 is about a second slower.

I think I'm setteled on the Cappuccino now. If anyone takes the p1ss I'll point out that it's quicker than a 2.3litre V5 Golf gti. If that doesn't shut them up, I talk about the freudian significance of men wanting large cars ;)

Thanks again :)
