    Starting from my 1st car when I was 17, now 32 and still counting:-

    '82 X Austin Mini City "Cooper Look-a-Like" 45bhp
    '89 F Toyota Carnia 1.6 16v 95bhp
    '94 L Vauxhall Astra 2.0 MK3 Convertible 115bhp
    '97 R Subaru Impreza 2.0 Turbo 208bhp
    '98 R Golf GT TDI 110bhp
    '00 X BMW 330d 184bhp
    '05 Ford Focus Zetec Zetec Ti-VCT 115bhp
    '07 Seat Leon Cupra 240bhp:lol:;):D

    A right mix of cars, the least liked was the Focus as it didn't feel special at all.

    She was probably jealous (of not having a penis).

    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!
