I didn't realise this had been done before... ok... what about funny stories then.

Kremmen, I forgot to add that I too have had a Citroen C5 loan car from work 2 years ago, really funny thing happened with the suspension one night when I got home. It wouldn't drop the suspension from a hill climb and parked up it looked like a silvercross pram!!!

1990 Ford Fiesta Popular Plus Hatchback 1.1L - Great little first car, lasted me 4 years.

1997 BMW 318iS Coupe 1.9L - Spent thousands on this baby - I was young - looked and sounded the bo**ocks.

1998 BMW M3 Evolution 3.2L - I had wanted one of these babies since the first time I spotted one on the road- best car I have ever owned - pant wetting performance and sexy (if now dated) looks.

2001 Lexus IS200 Sport - My current chariot, very sexy looks, great standard equipment, shame about the performance and mpg.

Plus a few runarounds in between and some that I can't remember.

These are all sort of in order 1st to last Had particular fun with the Cav V6 (4x4 Doughnut Machine), The Grandad (My first Rear wheel drive Hmmm Drifter!) The Accord (Had this onto 18's) The Vovlo was a beast! Full s/s Exhaust Rims and Coilovers. Real Touring car! (I would have another Volvo if I get rid of the Lexus!) Obviously The most fun to drive was the Cossie, Purely cos The ***** end would come out when you floored it in a straight line! Loved getting the ***** out round the roundabouts as well. It's the most fun i've had with my pants on!
