    Citroen Xsara 1.4, Cheap as chips as it was someones trade in and the dealer couldn't wait to get shot of it. Spent £500 in repairs though as the last owner didn't do anything, interior is immaculate, can't say much about the bodywork. Someone scratched the driver and rear passenger doors in the supermarket carpark this morning. Oh well, this is why I won't buy a brand new car!

    I think lots of people did! I changed mine as well but not to a Civic Type R, to a VW Tiguan Sport

    Yep, changed mine as well, ended up with a brand new Skoda Octavia Estate, it was cheaper buying it new than buying the same model 3 years old

    2007 Audi A3 1.6l

    Had it about a year now, only 35k on the clock and still feels like new. Previously had a 1.3l 2001 Fiesta.

    Still got my 1984 XR3i Soft Top.
    Just gone straight through 'another' MOT ;-)
    It's just a shame that the road tax costs more than the insurance!! :-0

    I ordered an Audi A4 in March - still waiting for it to be built on the 27th June which should take up too 3 weeks for delivery. I am just going to tell them to keep a hold of it and get it on the new reg plate on the 1st August.

    Still plodding around in my '98 Honda Accord 1.8 Sport. Damned quick and tends to drink the fuel a bit quick around town, but 110,000 miles and still going strong. Never had a fault other than human caused (father in law snapping a wishbone strut when skidding off road, me blowing a speaker when listening to Tiesto a *smidgen* too loud etc). Don't intend to get rid until it does start playing up though. But echoing someones comment before, I'm getting to that age where insurance is around the same price as tax and the car's book price is lower than either!

    You could just go to Wolfsberg and collect it and have more fun or go and pick one from the automated tower stacker carpark thing which looks great fun

    There's nothing like a long journey...whacking the cruise control on, at say 70mph, and sitting back and enjoying the drive!

    Everything about this car is sweet!

    And it is the first car I've ever had where the stereo controls are on the steering wheel!

    (Talk of not being paid enough....I only got it because of help from my Sister!)
