    When it comes to motoring, we all have to start somewhere, and you've obviously worked your way up the ladder and ended up with an audi, which isn't a bad thing... love the new toy also, what engine have you got for it?

    1996 Daewoo Nexia 16v - Greenish...(Had to start somewhere- ended up in a tree!)
    1990 Vauxhall Astra 1.4 Starmist - Pearly Blue - My first Recaro's!
    1990 Vauxhall Calibra 8v - Star Silver
    1989 VW Passat GT with G60 conversion 17"s and sat about 2" off the road - Black - (Sump exploded - I cried!!!)
    1997 Vauxhall Calibra SE4 - Gorgeous Blue with Cream Leather (Turned out to be more than just 1 calibra!!!)
    1991 Audi 100 2.0E (Rare Climate control) - White - (Loss of licence and blue smoke led to sale)
    1990 BMW 525 with M20B27 conversion and remap - LaserBlue - Fast as Fek!!!

    Presently car-less (the mrs owns the 1995 Audi A4 1.8 Auto), and as the signature suggests I'm planning on another Audi 100 (s4), or may venture back to beemer and get a 535i sport, I do miss my E34!
