@spivonious: Change the $ for a £ and that's about the UK price -- I paid £8000 for my car and I don't consider that cheap!

EDIT : Using today's exchange rate, the UK price (on Amazon) is $17,071.09.  How much does a car cost in the US?

Average price these days is about $30,000-32,000.  The cheapest new car you could get is more like 13-15K.
