    Not had anything exciting or interesting before buying the Audi's but heres a couple of my old daily hacks

    2000 Xsara 1.9 D (non turbo) - kept going and going, even ran on half a tank of petrol (whoops) - never broke down, never one problem except servicing items.

    Retired at 267,000 miles due to the below





    Oops




    Bought this as the replacement - what a expensive mistake

    2007 1.5 dCi 68k - full renault history - drove it for 1000 miles and the big end bearings gave up and wrecked/siezed the engine due to oil starvation when the bearings collapsed.

    Swiftly sold for the A3 when it was repaired





    Had this before the A6 - what a step up eh?!

    1997 Mondeo 1.8 TD - most reliable car I ever owned along with the Xsara - no stupid electronics to go wrong, had luxuries such as electric front windows and a cassette player

    No ecu no nothing, just good old fashioned mechanical systems

    Retired due to failing the MOT due to chassis rot and me putting a trolley jack through said rust (oops)

    I used to drive all kinds of old bangers because I didn't have a license! including the then (in the 80's at least) obligatory Mini

    The first car after passing my driving test:
    1984 Vauxhall Astra MkII 1.3 (no digital picture)

    Then:
    The Pocket Rocket. 1989 Peugeot 309GTI 1.9 *modified*


    next was an attempt to escape the 'boy racer' image that had somehow been bestowed upon me (..unjustifiably of course ) :
    Betsy, The Flying Armchair. 1996 Ford Mondeo MkI 2.5 Ghia *standard*


    ...which didn't last:
    The Beast. 2001 Ford Mondeo MkIII 2.5 Ghia X *modified*




    followed by another attempt to get away from 'performance' cars, save the planet (& cash) and live in peace forever after:
    The perfect work vehicle. 1998 Ford Fiesta MkIV 1.2 *standard*


    ...which failed again:
    My current chariot. Elsie.

    Got made redundant and bought this beauty :D

    Sold the corsa would you believe (two weeks after it was in the scrap lol) and inherited this of the old man

    Then got a bit of money sorted and bought my Audi A3 2.0 Tdi SLine Quattro :D

    My first decent car was my brand new cupra.... I was 18 when I got her and I loved it to bits! Still miss that car now!

    Cupra



    Fr 170 Leon - Only had it a few months as had nothing but problems with the DPF Filter so sent it back and got another petrol instead



    Red Petrol Leon



    A Clio that me and the mrs got - Had it a few months and some clown decided to drive into us and write it off! - Cracking car!



    And onto my A3



    Cheers all,

    Si
    Currently Driving - 2012 White 3 Door A3 170 Quattro Black Edition with loads of toys! - It's here and I love it!

    1st car - 1978 MK1 Ford Escort 1100L (rustbucket!)


    2nd car - 1969 MK1 Ford Escort 1300 'Super', after a nut & bolt rebuild ended up as 'Mexico' spec, to this day i still regeret selling this car.


    3rd car (no digi pics) - 1988 MK4 Ford Escort XR3i with 'hot cams', Spax suspension & TSW Evo wheels (dont laugh) - Concours condition.

    4th car - 1990 VW Passat 2.0 16v GT - Tuned beyond ridiculous levels with full Koni suspension setup & 17" Kahn alloys. Finally gave up on it after blowing 3 gearboxes in less than 2 months!


    5th car (no digi pics) - 1995 MK5 Ford Escort 1.8TD - A real low point in my car owning history!

    6th car - 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Sporting - Fitted with a tuned 1.2 'Fire' engine, 125mph top speed & some serious go-kart style brown pants fun!


    7th car - 2002 Seat Arosa 1.4 TDI - Owned for 8 years & not a standard bit left on it by the end, Engine tuned to 118bhp & 174lbft torque (from 75bhp & 118lb/ft), KW inox coilovers, BMC induction, handbuilt stainless exhaust, Lupo GTI heated leather interior, fully smoothed bodywork & repainted original colour. The best car I've owned!



    Current car - 2008 A3 S-line Sportback PD170 - Totally standard (for the moment) & no pics as yet, mainly because its been in the garage so much however I think we're getting there with resolving the engine issues...
    Artimus likes this.
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....

    1993 Clio Williams No.123 (of the original 400) - mint car, regretted selling it. Refurbished alloys and even re-fitted the original head unit!



    1994 Clio 16V (my first performance car) - nice factory spec with leather interior and sunroof. Running induction, exhaust, lowered and some nice ICE (all very tasteful and subtle).



    Second of my two Fiat Coupe 20V Turbos - this one (1998) was running 300-350bhp depending on setting courtesy of an FMIC, turbo-back exhaust, aquamist, standalone ECU, hybrid turbo, coilovers, grooved discs etc etc...



    2007 Clio 197 - run on H&R springs and open induction. Lovely motor.

    Just four of about 10 performance cars that I've had. After the 197, I got a 2.0T quattro Sportback S Line special edition in 2009 as I needed 5 doors - then upgraded to my current S3 in 2011.

    1st car was a Corsa C 1.0 - i doubt you'd wanna see that, nothing special lol.


    2nd car was a Lupo GTI which i absolutely loved and was fully loaded from factory!




    3rd was my S3 8L which i sold a few months back now, finished up on 270bhp but was ready for a Stage 2 map.





    Sold it with everything but the wheels which i sold separately....





    It had Lambo brakes too (one of my best mods on it!)




    4th car which is the current and got many plans for it..... (excuse the height, grass was lumpy so it sat uneven and a bit higher!)

    Inferi Black Cupra K1
