High Hopes for Learner Driver
She recently told me that she wants to learn to drive again. My initial reaction was surprise as she's been adamant that she never wanted to drive and had given up. We spoke a bit about driving and the subject of what car she might like to drive if she passes her test. To my surprise she said, "I like the Civic Type R". I was quite taken aback by her choice of car but she then said she wouldn't mind a Leon Cupra R either. Most people that know their cars will know that these are both quite powerful hot hatches that most first time drivers couldn't afford to buy, let alone insure.
