Well, did the deal today! Couldn't find a blue one with decent mileage, condition, etc, and a black one has come up - it's absolutely mint! It's a July 2007 in Panther Black so I have bitten the bullet and gone for it. I love the blue, but black is close 2nd, and she looks great in the metal!

Hopefully get her next week - can't wait! :D

I know hoy you feel dude, similar story with me and my first girlfriend many years ago.

Best advice I can offer is that it will get better with time. Stay positive and believe in yourself and you'll pull through!

Get out there and enjoy yourself for a while, play the field while you can! ;)

I had briefly considered the saloon, but they are far harder to get hold of. Also, with an 8 month old daughter and a black labrador, the hatch is hard to beat for practicality!

By Bro in Law is one of the top men at a local dealership, so I am fairly confident that I'll get pretty much as good a deal as I can hope for. I'll still haggle though!! My thoughts were that with car prices so low (especially the Mondeo, which depreciates from new like a stone) and high demand for the Avensis in the south of Ireland, I can pretty much take advantage of a high trade in against a low purchase price, with the added benefit of the high spec & performance.

Cheers Rikos, I agree - every time I see the blue I think "Yes - definitely blue" I just can't wait to get the deal done so the decision is made! :)

Yeah, I've been searching the Auto Trader site non stop looking at various pictures. So much so that my brain feels black and blue :wacko:

Every time I sway towards black I see a blue one and change my mind back again. It may be more common on an ST, but as you say, black is common on all makes and models (including my current Avensis).

I've more or less decided on the blue, although I may have to wait longer to get it :angry:

Have you got one yet? If so what do you think of it? I've been loyal to Toyota for years, and am a little nervous about the jump to Ford.
