I'm getting itchy feet with the delays and summer passing me by.
Slightly fueled by visiting Lotus in the Peak last weekend 😍
I should be happy as I have my Yaris, but it's more all season than ☀️ vibes.
I probably won't buy anything now as it makes no sense for 3 months or less.
Interested to know what everyone has SPECIFICALLY purchased as a stop gap though. Not your existing cars but something that you have gone out and bought to 'fill the gap' between your old car going and the new Emira purchase arriving
Photo for attention and because i may get my Rado back from resto now before the Emira and its a v cool pic ( not mine) 😁🥰

No pictures yet but there’s a 600LT that’s been whispering loudly to me 😰

I know the Emira would an all around better option for my use-case but I don’t think we’ll be seeing any cars here this year…

I bought this....

Fun to drive (although it seems to want to kill you on every roundabout) cheap to buy and will hold its price.

Prices are a bit silly now and with another rate hike expected soon it’ll be a matter of time before they return to typical levels.

Still…🥲

expensive on parts though should anything go wrong in typical JLR fashion
 
For now, despite not having a vehicle at all since my other was stolen, I’ve decided not to buy a car for the gap, and instead I’ve rented an MX-5 out of Munich for three weeks and plan to wander around the Alps checking holy grail roads off my bucket list in August / September.

Does that count?

Defo that's v cool.
How much does that cost dare I ask?
Assume it may accidentally go around the N-Ring....
 
Couldn't stand the wait, too itchy and got this one back in March. Glad I did and enjoying it so much that I will keep it whenever Emira arrives.

I love that long time!
I need to drive one and the Emira in August and decide which is best for me I think. Maybe an Exige as well... justbin case... 😉
