    This was my first little car! Got it when I was 17 and then it fell apart half way through my 1st year at uni! So had to get something to drive around in, so got the A3. Original plan was to get a GTi after uni but that's not happening now.

    2006/2008 - 52 Peugeot 206 1.4 LX, Platinum Silver

    2008 - 04 Audi A3 8P1 2.0 TDi (140) Sport, Mauritius Blue

    I now have this (being a family man!):


    This was my last car...


    ...which replaced this (amongst others):





    The Audi is a great car to own and use now that I have different requirements, but it's not a patch on the handling, noise and looks of this lot!

    Yes - Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo. This was the second of two I owned, running in excess of 325bhp courtesy of some extensive modifications by the previous owner. Low weight too.

    Even the standard car was incredibly rapid: 0-100 in 14 secs. I never had the modified car timed, but it was definitely in Audi RS territory once on the move.

    The 750 SS and the blue/silver 900SS went for 65,000 and 20,000 respectively recently. all the bikes were restored by me and there we a few others as well but i dont want to bore people,
    I am going to put a post on the general thread about the restoration of the NCR race bike soon. :-)
