I was wondering what other cars you'd had along the way to buying the Juke, I know my car history is a rather strange Journey:

Ford Fiesta 1.1 - Petrol - used
Rover 414 1.4 - Petrol - used
Vauxhall Cavalier 1.9 - Diesel - used
Vauxhall Frontera 2.0i Sport - Petrol - used
BMW 316 1.6 - Petrol - used
Vauxhall Calibra 2.0i - Petrol - used
ISUZU Bighorn - 3.5TD - Diesel - used (import)
Alfa Romeo 157 - 1.6 - Petrol - used
SAAB 95 - 2.0 - Diesel - used
Landrover Freelander - 2.0 - Diesel - used

of the above excluding the Juke my Favorite was the Calibra, then the Alfa, then the Landy - but really excited about the Juke's arrival

there may have even been one or two that Ive missed (but they must have been very boring for me not to remember them)
and I should also mention that I was also going out for a number of years with a Toyota dealership manager - and yes he sold me my first funny

the Juke is the longest I have had to wait for a car so far - but Im sure it will be worth the wait.
PS By the way Im not that old either to have all those cars - I just love them so much I changed them every year or two - think of how much money I would have now if I had been more sensible.......but that would be boring wouldnt it
