    Ex BMW 2009 58 plate with 3k on the clock paid £20k for it with every option bar xenons and iDrive. Full M-Sport, 18's.
    Only issues I had were 2x blown window motors and the dreaded ABS Hydro Unit fault. Great car, only swapped because I needed bigger!
    How old was it when you brought it?

    6 months I think, £33k book price, was a no brainer. Lost £11k in approx 4 years of ownership, a little too much for me but hey ho.

    First car was a 1984 Austin Maestro 1.3 (terrible POS). From then I've had:

    81 Ford Escort 1.3
    89 VW Polo 1.3 CL
    93 Ford Fiesta XR2i
    94 Honda Civic ESi
    51 VW Lupo GTI
    54 Seat Toledo TDI 150
    57 Seat Leon FR TDI
    12 Seat Leon Cupra R

    Not sure if I'll get anything more powerful than the Cupra. It's right on the borderline of what is usable on a road.

    Only concern is reports on focus forums <24mpg. I don't expect good economy from a hot hatch like that especially that engine but the civic will happily see low 30s daily use driven carefully

    Love the new fiesta ST, out my price range! Had the 2.0 Fiesta ST, just not enough power and I'm not planning to spend thousands to get the 2.0 mondeo lump in that fiesta to a decent power for a hot hatch using nice quality mountune kits

    Some good deals online for the Peugeot 208 GTI too. Got a decent amount of BHP for a hot hatch and the interior is a nice place to be.

    Is this like Sheldon Cooper asking what type of computer do you have and don't tell me it's beige ?

    If that is the case then mine has 4 wheels, a petrol engine and allows me to go from A to B

    ok ok ok it's a metallic blue honda civic executive II 1.6 petrol 51 plate

    A better question might be what's the worst car you've ever owned be it reliability or an embarrassment looking back on, spinners and neon underglow anyone?
