    It's a Daihatsu Sirion. I picked it mainly because it had aircon and was cheap. It's kept in a the garage and I only really use it for work and going swimming. On Saturdays, I take the bypass to the pool, so I can get the engine temperature up a bit.

    I got my new car end of march. I do a fair bit of miles (not as much as some, mind), so it's already got around 5k on the clock.

    A '97 Citroen XM 2.1 TD with 220,000 on the clock here!

    I'm a big fan of the Peugeot/Citroen diesels.

    Actually, I was surprised at how weather-proof the soft top was during that winter. The previous owner was a mechanic who kept it as a plaything, garaged for eight months of the year and perfectly maintained. I'll have it re-proofed at the end of the rainy season.....sorry.....summer, then I'll think about selling it.

    Not even the highest mileage vehicle I've had. I had an M reg peugeot 405 turbo diesel that had been a taxi at some point in it's 4-owner life and when I bought it in 2003 it had 299,000 on the clock. I gave £280 for it (£50 more than the scrappers offered) I ran it for 3 years and put another 65k on it. It needed a lot of suspension bushes and a new exhaust at one MOT, but other than that went through MOTs with no issues. It's major issue was that it ate electric window mechs! I sold it to a bloke for £400 and the last time I ran into him in 2012 it was still going with just shy of 400k but it had had a recon gearbox on it.

    yeah if you look after the soft tops they can be ok. I've had a couple of MG TF's in the past. They got a bit flappy on the motorway!!!

    I love this focus. It's not the best looking from the back, but it handles so well with the roof off.... love it!
