    I only had a 1.2 16v (like it makes a difference) clio before my S3. Had to drive it again last week when my clutch pedal broke, I'd forgotten how much fun it is totally thrashing the nuts off a car and how chuckable it is, still it can't cover ground anywhere near the speed my S3 can mind.

    well I took it to a very good Honda approved bodyshop, so the labour rate was quite high. Honda parts aren't cheap either. The cost of the repair was about £7000, so they decided to write it off instead.

    It's better they did as I got my money back after a year of ownership. if it'd had been repaired I would have had trouble selling it. I bought it back anyway as a CAT D and sold it on.

    i had a renault 19... :blush: and i had litterally run it into the ground.. I didn't really care about the car, and i got is cheap.. I had to take it to the big scrap heap in the sky, after one of the bearings went on the universal joint from the steering column. made a horrible crunching sound when turning the wheel, and trying to park in a spot, the front end bounced up and down...

    1st car was a 206 1.4GLX company car raged it silly. In 3 years it had 2new gear boxes, loads of brake pads, 2 new sets of discs (front only), about 10 new tyres. A respray on the left side. Was totally fu*ked by the end.

    Then had a punto 1.2 16v active sport. Loved the car for about a year. Great fuel eco and for a 1.2 it was nippy. Then the car began to sqweek and the exhaust broke. Never again

    And now my A3 1.8 sport. Love the car. Wish it had AC and was a turbo but hay you can't have everything

    My last car was a R5GTT. Loved it, owned it for 10 years and spent silly money on it. Had the engine rebuilt once, top end twice! Modded virtually everything on it, had it resprayed in the original tungsten grey but never changed the looks apart from smoothing the bumpers and changing the wheels. (Always felt that standard looks subtley improved is the way to go)

    There is a mk1 turbo2 going around near where I live now. Looks and sounds awesome :hubbahubba:
