I Bought A RWD Hatchback On Instagram For £350!
Because my V6 Vitara daily driver has already let me down, I've been on the hunt for another interesting replacement.

    There is another one 316ti with the N40. My father owns one, and it's solid car. Now, it has payload of 525kg on the boot, plus another 75 on the roof (with a rack of course), and maximum towing capacity of 1300kg with braked trailer. If you want, you can easily haul 2t with it. About handling: it can cruise, supercruise, carve a mountain, and if the driver has the cojones, it can do some offroading.

    I wouldn’t ruin this one. With a bit of attention to the paint, some replacement seats and a little bit of attention, it would be super nice. You’d probably add some value to it. Car Throttle to become Wheeler Dealer?

    Did you just take a detour to enjoy the drive and have more time for the video? You passed the Jane 60th sign and drove off in one direction, then at the 8:02 mark you drive past it again in the other direction. Or at least past a wall that also says 60th where Jane could be just out the frame...
