    no its not that lpg is 48p a litre dont understand it myself i think its maybe the a4 is smaller and feels nippier especialy when the turbo kicks in with the cheap lpg its working out about 45 to 50 mpg monetary equivilant which is very good for a 2.8 quattro

    I know how you feel, for some reason I just don't like my A3, i'm thinking its because its an auto and i'm sure i've gone off diesel .. i'm looking a Focus St's Astra VXRs or possibly an A4 either cabriolet or saloon. I'm bored of black too.

    I miss my old Golf..

    Spent £6k tricking it out but the 1.4 engine was just too slow for me.

    But the attention it use to get - loved it..

    I miss my old 1.4 206. My first ever car and it was really fun to drive. I was gonna keep it till I had to spend 600 quid to repair the exhaust and engine. So decided to get rid of it. But I do miss driving a petrol occasionally.

    My number plate reads VX51CKY

    One of the people I work with suggested it might be worth a few bob.

    VV51CKY is worth £2200!

    What do you think?

    Worth paying the enquiry fee of £20 to find a current market value?

    I'd need to buy another plate to repalce it if I sold it which would eat a fair bit of the cost!

    thoughts!

    Spent months hunting for a CRX Vtec years back, found one local,drove it, didnt like it much, foolishly bought it anyway, because it took ages to find. Not the wisest thing I ever did.:think:
    Was Ok I suppose, but only kept it a few months and traded it for a Corrado losing a load of money.

    I had a 1999 toyota corrolla and loved it, sold it to buy my last Audi and i've missed it ever since, should have just kept it for a second car.

    Not sure what your plate is worth Andy, but what has it got to do with 'anyone regret changing their car'? lol

    What didn't you like about the CRX Vtec(I'm guessing you mean an EF Coupe model as opposed to the transtog EG model)? Great machines, I wouldn't mind one as a runaround, but unmolested ones in good nick are hard to find like you say.

    I regret selling my Mark 2 Golf GTI, even till today!!!

    Stupidly PX'ed it for a Mark 3 GTI, always thought the Mk2 was so much better in every single way!!

    Oh well, hopefully one day soon, another Mk2 will sit on my drive :)

    Yeah MK2 GTI 16v was the nuts interms of speed, pissed on my MK3 GTI which prompted me to buy the 1st of number of VR6's, lol.

    But not once have I regretted selling any car, as much as I loved my treasured S3 everything has its time & pastures new, each car I get wiser with apparently, lol, my love affair with vag cars started in 97/98 & havnt looked back since.

    Yeah, the wedge shape one with the glass tailgate, in Red like this one.

    [​IMG]

    Was just too gutless, too peaky, couldnt get comfortable in the seats, wheels were too skinny so grip was iffy particularly in the wet.
    I traded it for a MK2 Astre GTE16V at the time, which had the usual, Induction Kit, Exhaust , lowered & Uprated, 16" Wheels (Yes 16"!!) and the Astra felt quicker.
    Should have kept the Astra really.

    The CRX looked great though, and still does IMO, and was much more premium than the Astra.

    If you are looking to get one I would try the seats first to make sure you can get comfy in them, then change the wheels, and try and get the Jade bluey metallic colour like this one.
    [​IMG]
    Then you would have a cool little car.
    Watch for rust though, I had my rear quarter painted twice because of the dreaded tinworm!

    Good luck

    Paul

    I sold my Sapphire Cosworth to get an S3 and I don't regret it, but I do miss the speed!
