I'm developing a hankering for the Peugeot 306, though a part of me says no. The Peugeot is available very cheaply here, and there are quite a few of them. It also fulfills my crazy requirement that the car I drive not be available in America.
However the car seems very plebian. The interior is high quality, but it feels a little too middle class European socialist, devoid of character, and made with midlevel office functionaries in mind as they tootle along the crowded and small highways of Europe identically at the same speed. It looks dehumanising.
Ok maybe not. If I can just find a deal on Chevrolet Lumina coupe v6 model.
What about a Citroen C4? Really interesting car, and not as plagued with problems as previous Citroen/Peugeot cars. Or an Alfa, or a Euro Civic.
Just my two cents. Oh, and welcome to Dubai.
