    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.
    [​IMG]

    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.

    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
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    My 2nd car - the 1.8T Quattro Go-Kart
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    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!):

    Before my S3 I had (in order going backwards):

    Mk 4 Golf GTI 25th Anniversary 180bhp in Reflex Silver
    Mk 4 Golf GTI 150bhp (not a patch on the Anni !)
    Honda Accord 1.8 Sport (for 18 months and forced on me due to work - definitely not my choice lol)
    Mk 2 Golf GTI 16V
    Mk 1 Golf 1.6 GLS
    Mk 1 Golf 1.1N (my 1st car)

    As you can see, I've been a bit of a Dubber until now but still VAG!
