    Honestly I wouldn't. Unless your getting something more economic to run, selling a small car like yours that does get pretty good mpg would not be a good idea right now as fuel prices are likely to continue to rise sharply :(

    In some way I regret selling my valver for the above reasons. I haven't even got the replacement car on the road but I know it will be costing me a lot of money in petrol to run it (2 litre turbo) everyday.

    Should have asked is it your daily car before posting that!

    I went from a Williams to a Ph1 172 and it was the best thing I ever did. Standard the Willy was faster, handles better, bit more fun and connected, but the price you pay is constant mechanical worries and stress over rust. My view was that the car was getting and feeling old and had to go. Touch wood this hasn't been a problem at all, so I can spend money on mods instead of repairs.

    If you can get decent money, I'd sell

    I went from a Valver to a 172 Ph1 and I agree with Jesus - lack of worry, routine maintenance, and low hassle driving made it a cracking car not to mention savings on breakdown cover

    Standard for standard, my 172 Ph1 is definitely faster than any standard Williams i have driven (willy 3 on 54k, williams 1 No.26 110K and Williams 1 No.69 123k) Thats taking into account the longer ratios of the 172 JC5 box as well. No.26 was RR'd and made 155bhp on the day, My 172 made 177BHP on the day at the same RR and 5 minutes after the williams was tested so the comparison is reasonably accurate.

    My williams has just undergone a refresh of its suspension and an upgrade under the bonnet. The LARGEST difference between the two cars I can tell, is where the Williams feels sharp and precise (like a sports car) the 172 feels like a grand tourer in comparison - easy, hassle free, comfy, amicable. Thats not to say it cannot be fun, its just the package of the car feels a lot less 'raw' and not as 'focused'.

    Have the williams as a fun weekend car, and get a nice cheap diesel for day to day worry free commuting
