    You are only as old as the woman you feel.

    28.

    My 8V S3 when I get it will be my first "proper" fast car. Had mainly hot hatches since I was 20 like Mk5 GTI, MINI JCW (second generation), 120d, 130i M Sport and a rather shocking 08 plate Polo GTI which was so bad I asked for my money back after two weeks.

    My S3 will be my 8th new car in 11 years of driving. Wasted thousands lol - but was worth it!

    Yeah, PCP. Insurance was £660 for the year with 6 points. I had a Corsa for a few years after passing my test, and then bought a A3 2.0 TDI Black Edition which I kept for 3 years, followed by a Golf GTI which I kept for <2 years and now have the S3. All new. I said that I wouldn't buy another car (after the Golf) until I'd bought my house, which I have, so I felt it was time to treat myself again. All paid for by myself. I don't know why people are so surprised, @ 23 (nearly 24) I've been working for 5+ years out of college

    God, didn't realise we had so many rich young chaps in S3's ;) I'm 33 and I could never have afforded an S3 in my early 20's as had mountains of Uni debt to pay off!

    It's pcp that makes it possible you can get a lot of car for certain deals. 21 year old Lads on 20k a year are running round in new M3s, AMGs etc. it's good if your happy with not owning the car and living at home with parents, I think I'll look into pcp for my next car.

    got to be sensible at least once in life, I also made sure it had a garage so I had room to store a car safely!

    I have 5 years no claims. I would have more but I've cancelled policies mid term a few times when changing cars as it didn't make financial sense to change the car on the existing policy.

    weird, audi insurance wanted a laughable £997 for me despite 25+ years driving exp, 25+ years ncd and a naughty ts10 3 points

    Quick check via confused.com and hey presto £270

    Audi insurance staff must be on drugs

    crikey, you guys either live/lived in a shed or bought a long long long time

    my first house in 1999 was a 3 bed (well 2 bed with a converted loft for a 3rd bedroom that was mega tiny at 10ftx10ft) and cost almost 4x a standard s3 sportback manual - same house is 10x-12x now - the joys of living in berkshire

    wow, ive been driving 25+ years and driven fewer cars
    Ford Escort 1.6GL - 1 year
    Ford Fiesta XR2 - 1 week as a heap of rubbish
    VW Golf GTI Mk2 - 6 years - great fun, alas VW destroyed the car until the mk6
    Peugeot 205 1.9GTI - 6 years - best car ive had - strong a cornflake packet, modded to 170bhp and £000s spent on upgrades, drove like a go kart and pretty nippy
    Peugeot 307xsi - 11 years - current car - most reliable car ive had oddly - strangely better than the 308 that replaced it and as good as the current 308 imo

    tip run car
    Ford fiesta 1.25 - 1 year - just sold

    often drive the wifes cars
    Peugeot 306 1.4xn
    merc a class - current car

    Yep I've been a bit silly with cars over the years. Was paid a very good wage from early twenties so it was inevitable really that I'd waste it on cars!

    Odd to hear about your poor Audi insurance quote. Currently pay £340 per year on A1 185 BE and it will be going UK to £411 a year for the S3. That's with 3 points for the Mrs and my 3 windscreen claims. Both with 6 years no claims.

    I think a lot of cars are like that, my Peugeot 205 1.9gti got off the clock at approx. 145mph I guess when I was a young 35-36

    you would think 25 years ncd would help, sure ts10 doesn't help but that's my first traffic offence in 20 years on the worst design roundabout ever (yes, traffic lights on a roundabout = pointless)

    NCD usually peaks at 5 years with up to 75% discount. After this additional years of NCD make very little, if any difference at all.
