My list of cars purely owned by me:

- Fiat Uno (birthday present)
- VW Polo 1.4 Open Air
- VW Polo 1.4 Twist
- VW Polo 1.2
- Cupra Born V1

If I include shared with the other half:

- Citroen Picasso (children)
- Citroen C4 Grand Picasso
- Seat Alhambra (more children!)

Not a very long list, considering I got my first car in 1998, but I think it's safe to say we like our VAG cars. The Born will be my first brand new car ever.

Subaru Impreza WRX - never really bonded with it after the classic
Lotus Elise 111s - heart over head!
Honda S2000 - Loved it but had some expenses so it had to go.
BMW 330d - Very torquey thing with surprisingly nice sounding engine
Honda S2000 - back in the game!
Ford Focus ST - but now have a child!
BMW 123d Coupe - Liked this a lot in spite of it being a diesel
Volvo XC60 - Trying to be sensible. A lovely car actually.
