Whether you have been naughty or nice this year, it’s still worth asking Father Christmas for the car you really, really want to drive. There are so many great used cars out there and many of them represent excellent value for money.
Just think how much happier you will be with a sports car than, say, a pair of hand-knitted socks. And why fill a stocking with chocolate money and satsumas when a dinky little supermini would be a much better present (to yourself)?
Just remember that a good used car is not just for Christmas. It will most likely keep you entertained at least until the MOT runs out.
We politely suggest that you leave this web page open in a prominent position in your family home, just in case Santa doesn’t get the message.
Our top 20 Christmas used cars
20 - BMW M5, the super saloon
If you were sitting on Santa’s lap and he asked you what you wanted for Christmas, chances are you’d want a bit of everything. You know: supercar fast, comfy, room for all the family and dead sexy to look at. Well, that would have to be a BMW M5. The only conundrum is whether to go old school or newer school.
