    Ron, there may be some i800 left around but that 2.5 litre diesel engine is a bit of a stinker, the economy is not good.

    Are you looking to go bigger than the Alhambra? if so you are fishing from a small pool of expensive van derivatives, the VW Shuttle is the pick but the AP increased this quarter and even in SE trim you would only get steel wheels, Alloys are an expensive add on.

    Auto or Manual?

    Peugeot Rifter/Citoen Berlingo LWB 7 seater, More space + better economy.

    When my auto was involved in a crash I was given a Hyundai i800 as a hire car. It was the only auto they had. Boy was it big. Difficult to find parking space big enough. Being black with tinted windows kids called it the gangster mobile while work colleagues called it the pimp mobile.

    Loved it in the end. Wish I had a family big enough to justify buying one. Proper eight seater for adults.

    Ron, the other option is providing the Alhambra still fulfils your requirements, extend the lease, mileage dependant you could extend for a further two years.
