its a 1991 toyota celica for those who don't already know
was my first car and i owned it for nearly 4 years
was the 2.0 Gti model which i spent too much on!
My S3 was the replacement for my (much missed) 2004 Alfa 147GTA:
An earlier highlight was my 1999 Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo LE:
1.6 Pug 307
This is the one directly replaced by the A3:
Mk3 Golf GTI - 175bhp
Then these went on.. 7.5 fronts 9's rear

Had a mk2 before that, but that was a budget first car project

Previous: 25th Anniversary 1.8T 0824
Before that: 306 GTi6
Isnt that the TI in congleton Robin??
Ive always had brand new cars: and was a Renault man till i test drove an A3...
First was a '03 Renault Clio Dynamique
Second was '06 Megane Dynamique
Then my '59 A3 S-Line Black Edition
Had my T4 while the my wifes golf got chopped in for the A3 with the intention I would get rid of the Volvo later and keep the A3 while she got her company car.
As it turned out we got rid of the Audi first for the BMW and kept the Volvo on until her new Golf company car turned up a couple of months later.
Before my A3:
(Golf GT TDi 115BHP standard Sitting on BBS RSII's slammed on Eibach Pro Street S Coilovers, massive sound install all done by me, headrest screens, Kenwood 8220BT, sub in the floor MB Quarts 8" all round amped with a DC LVL 4 and DLS amp for some lows. Remapedto 180BHP with a decat and panel filted. Miss it A LOT!)
(Golf SE TDi Fully loaded only had it for 6 months)
I had a 306 XTDT before that as my first car but it went after 4 months because I wanted something more German...
My Old Car
My Current Car
Missing a few,
I had a VW Passat 2.0 TDI 170
(I had it in the picture taken on the left, the guy who bought it off me lowered it and added new wheels on the right)
Next was my S line Cabriolet
But sorry guys left the A3 fold for the A4
so far you win sir!
1.4 16v polo had 120hp which for a car its size meant silly fun.
Old Car A3 1.8
Current Car S3
Snap on the FD2! Had mine for a year but could not get on with the uncompromising suspension/dampers
Erm, lets see, I replaced my 8L S3 with an, erm 8P S3 and I'm just about to replace my 8P S3 with an erm, 8P S3.
My old MX5. I love these cars still, but no room for the boy unfortunately!
After a paint correction via DAS-6 and Menzerna, finished with PB BH and Collinite 476s
I am replacing my RX8 of 6 years. first German Car I am going to Own, (not got it yet, tis Ordered)
My Previous Car - Probably the fastest, best sounding and most reliable car I have had! In away, wish I still had it!

Some pics of my first 2 cars - need to root out others and take some decent pics of my current car during facelift conversion!
First Car - Seat Toledo V5
My 2nd car - the 1.8T Quattro Go-Kart
I then went to an unreliable 8L S3 (need to find pic(s)) for a short time before buying the 3.2 S-Line - rubbish pics as it currently stands (subject to conversional change!):
