I passed my test in 2000, no need for a car when I was at university.

Since then my list is very short, I like to keep my cars hahaha :lol:

Ford KA
Ford StreetKA (ordered from new before they were released and got one of the first ones in the UK, I LOVED it!)
BMW 1 Series (Ex demo that is a fantastic car, infact it is my husbands day to day motor now.)
Kia Sportage (Great quality car, 2gen design looked nice and had little problems from it, ran it for the full 7 year warranty period.)
Porsche Macan (BEST CAR I'VE EVER HAD :P )
Sal

It’s car number 19 in my 23 years of driving and I’ve been lucky to have some very nice and fast cars but this deffo sits top of the pile for all round appeal and wow factor. I’d like to thank this forum for some great advice and I plan to keep contributing and building my knowledge base here. Not the best photo but it needs a good clean after a 330 mile drive home from Porsche Solihull.

Cheers,

Scotty

Congrats Scotty

Cracking car, I bet this one will be a keeper (at least a year ??)

Got me thinking about my motoring history.
Been driving for 52 years and over that time I have had the following cars.

Not necessarily in the correct order:-

Austin Healey Sprite
Mini Marcos
Mini Cooper S
MG Midget
Mini 1275 GT
Triumph Spitfire
Lancia Fulvia Coupe
Porsche 911T - proper air-cooled job
Capri 3.0S
Ford Sierra estate
Ford Fiesta
BMW 318iS
Morris Minor saloon x2, convertible x1
VW Golf GTI x3, Scirocco, Golf Tdi
Mazda Mx5 x2
BMW Mini Cooper
Audi A4 x3,A3, S3
986 Boxster S
718 Cayman
Macan GTS
Skoda Octavia Scout - for dogs and supermarkets
Macan Gen 2

To be honest some were a waste of money, some - 911, Cooper S, Lancia Fulvia, I wish I still owned.
