82 polo 1.1 GL When it started which was not often!
Not counting several company cars and the wifes cars.
Mini Cooper S 55 plate facelift model.
For those who moan about the harsh ride of a FR on 18" wheels all I can say is its like moving to driving a Jag in comparison!
Seriously though, I loved the Cooper S but day to day driving it returned 25 mpg. The FR Tdi does just a smidge under 40mpg so nothing like what the figures say but still a major improvement. Oh and the Road tax is lots cheaper too. Strange thing is though it feels faster....
Oh and very impressed with Igor23 running an abarth. Serious respect due.
Why oh why are italian cars so crap?
3 cars back I had an
Alfa 33 Sportwswagon 1.716v 137bhp. Weigh 999kg.
Went like stink (occasionally) but had no brakes to speak of and nearly killed me a few times
Never ever ever again will I buy an italian - unless it has a trident on the front!
None, this is my first car
