Well I’m sure you have missed me guys, I sure haven’t missed you lot! I joke of course – Honestly, from April right up until the present my calendar has been pretty busy. It’s been a mix of Final Projects, Exams and Placement Interviews. I can now safely say that it was all well worth it as I have now finished my second year and getting ready to begin a year of hard work in industry.
So for the first time in my life I am going to be among the working elite and get a taste of what the daily grind is all about. You can get complacent being an easy going student and not having too many worries apart from when the next project deadline is. So I now have to start thinking about more ‘responsible’ issues, how will I commute between home and work? by car, train, plane, or hot air balloon? Well after much thought I think I have come up with it! (trust me on this one because the hot air balloon idea was top of the agenda until I released how big these things were)
The humble Car seems to be the answer, but what car you ask, because there are plenty out there to choose from! Well, first of all it has to be economical because of the stupidly high fuel prices right now, what with the middle east uprising. It has to be good on the insurance, and above all value for money. After spending copious amounts of time researching and visiting dealerships I have my eye on a Skoda. Honestly this is no typing mistake but Skoda have pleasantly surprised me. This is why I have my eye on the new five door Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo 1.2 70 bhp. Not only is this hot hatch easy on the wallet but it comes with all the modern trim that you would expect in a high end car, leather accents dotted around the interior accompanied by red stitching gives the car a sporty yet high end feel. Even the dashboard, although being the standard injection moulded plastic it still feels of VW German quality. In its standard form, the Fabia is boxy and nondescript, but with the glitz of the black gloss trim, the smoked headlights and the dark 17-inch alloys, it does take on much of the aggression of the sporting vRS. The red Fabia, in the land of the supercar, even turns a few Monegasque heads.
