Should I trade in my Impreza for a Mazda RX-8?

I have a 2003 Subaru Impreza 1.6 petrol saloon 4wd with approx 170,000 miles on the clock and an NCT until next March. I am looking around at the moment at other automobiles, and the Mazda RX-8 is taking my fancy. Just wondering would I be able to cut a deal with a dealer to sell my Impreza, whether it would be worth anything to me?

Can you help me chose a small convertible?

Which small convertible should I go for? I have a budget of up to €13,000 and would like a stylish automobile for a change from my 2005 Toyota Yaris. I do little mileage and would hope to buy something I will love for a number of years. I have been looking out for a Volkswagen Eos 1.4 with leather interior but these are not that easy to find. I have also looked at the Peugeot 207 CC 1.6 but am open to all suggestions.

Thanking you.

What's wrong with my Renault Laguna?

Hi, I changed the battery in my 2008 1.5 dCi Renault Laguna and now I have no power at all. It won't switch on, doors not locking, windows, or lights nothing works. The only thing that is working is the power steering buzzing and you can turn the wheels. What would have happened?
