    Want vs Need - Ding Ding Fight! Round One

    Do we really need a fast car?Near my home I see a Ferrari at least once a week driving along the road, it uses up more petrol revving the engine than I use in an entire week yet I always ask myself, do we all really need fast cars? In a previous article I talked about the increasing congestion on the roads, so why do we strive to get one of these bad boys?We want one. We want the flash Porsche and the big Jeep. We want to live a life of luxury and if we can afford it, then why not? When the Ferrari drives past I think '

    That person must earning so much money to be able to afford that! But oh what a sexy car.' It looks good, we feel good when we are in sitting behind the wheel, and why shouldn't we? We must have something to look forward to! We all work so hard to make our quality of life better so we can enjoy it. However, with luxury today there is a huge cost! Can we really afford to have our own Porches with fuel bills going through the roof? New car sales have slumped according to the BBC and don't set to be rising anytime soon, are people thinking twice about speed and now considering global warming and opting for efficiency? Will fast, slick cars be a thing of the past and the new 'speed' be 'zero emissions'? It certainly looks that way, 4x4's are getting taxed out of the exhausts with them being in the higher tax group for emissions, our more energy efficient cars being taxed from £0, and these are cars that are also exempt from the congestion charge. We here at Auto Europe do an entire range of luxury cars, so if you fancy saving money, rather than buying one, why not hire one for that weekend road trip you were planning?Next Week... Round Two

    Do we really need a car at all?Are we really better off by bike...
