Hi all...i've seen this done on other forums and thought it might be fun to have a thread going on here where us forum members can either list or show off some of the the cars they've owned before they found their way here...

Mine is varied but includes;

Vauxhall Cavalier - engine died
Rover 400 - everything died
Ford Focus - nice car, sold at 90k miles
Ford Cougar - US coupe, not the Kuga SUV
BMW 320si
BMW 320d

Fiat Punto - great car but after picking it up couldn't find reverse and got stuck in a cul de sac and had to ring the garage to rescue me!
Subaru Impreza - only a 1.6L but great all round visibility like a fighter cockpit.
Mazda 3 - current - Diesel, great range, one thing I'll really miss. For the longer trips I've done it saved 50% of my fuel costs compared to previous

I would have to pull out my records. I have owned a lot of cars, the reason being is that I drove a lot of older used cars from my teens well into my 30's. I did not get a brand new car until after I was in my 40's.

I'll post me list shortly with a few pics if I can fine them.

Varied list…

- Peugeot 106 ‘Extra Time’ 1.2 petrol - great fun, sold
- Renault Clio 1.2 petrol - dull, written off after hit in crash
- Renault Clio 1.6 16v petrol - little go cart, ace
- Vauxhall Astra 1.6 petrol - a car.
- VW Golf SE 1.6 - a car
- Mazda RX8 190hp - Amazing but DRANK fuel (and oil)
- BMW 320d M-Sport - nice motorway cruiser, turbo blew up.
- Audi A3 1.9 eco diesel - a nice enough car
- VW Scirocco 2.0 diesel auto - loved this car but couldn’t fit newly arrived kids in it.
- Fiesta 5 door thing - stop gap
- SEAT Ateca 1.4 TSI Auto Xcellence - dad bus, but a nice car to drive for an SUV.

I love this.

Ford Ka-my first car.
Renault Clio mk2.5 - great car and felt really posh after Ka.
Renault Megane mk2 - really dull.
Mini Cooper mk2 - fun!
BMW 118d coupe - great, solid car.
BMW 118i mk2 - ok in isolation but disappointing after mk1.
Audi Q3 - terrible reliability and pretty boring.
Merc c220d coupe - my favourite car but so expensive to maintain.
Merc A200 mk4 - great interior but terrible suspension.
VW Golf mk8 - gets slated but I love it. Wish they still made electric Golfs.

Short and sweet for me!

- Mk 7.5 Ford Fiesta Zetec. 1.25L & 85 BHP. A great first car but you needed to book an appointment to overtake a cyclist!
- Mk 8 Fiesta ST-3. Cracking car! lovely sounding 1.5 3-pot with around 200 BHP. Great for b-road blasts but a bit too jiggly for my commute now.

Just waiting on my V2 now!

The Born will actually be my first car, so really exciting! Yes I am insane getting a 200BHP first car.
