    Various lower model R5's then...

    1990 R5 GTT
    1996 Honda CRX ESi
    1998 Honda Civic VTi
    2001 Audi A3 1.8T

    The new A3 is certainly slower than the Civic but that should change after a remap :)

    I'm 25 years young.

    Started with a J Reg 1.2 RL Clio at 16 1/2.... started driving when I passed my test..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Moved onto a tidy little L Reg 1.4 106 XSi...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    THEN.. *sniggers*... It was approaching Summer (well, it actually wasn't... I brought it in March of 2006) a J Reg 1.6 JLX Vitara Fatboy. It had to be done really! Granted.. looking back I must have looked like a girl.. but me and the crew had soo many awsome weekends away.. just brilliant.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    (winter was drawing near... and the tyres were on their way out.. (I'd of been damned if I was going to pay for them, they're huge!!))

    Sept '06 I picked myself up (after three weeks on a push bike...) and brought myself a R Reg A3 1.8 Sport. Love it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm in dier(sp) need of the Turbo now I think (for a reasonable price..) although, the A3's coming out of the Garage tomorrow after having a cambelt change, new discs & pads, x-amount of new sensors etc.. soo... I'd better keep her for a while yet and wait for something to pop up..

    oh, and I'm 20. DOB 02/03/87. (20 last month..)

    Keep the thread going guys.. It's a good one!

    2000 Rover 25 (great handling but old man image!)
    1998 A3 TS (she was a beaut)
    1998 Fiat barchetta (great fun)
    1996 BMW Compact (rear-wheel-drift-tastic!)
    1995 Vauxhall Astra (temp car for a few weeks..honest!)

    Surely as you get older the cars get younger...!!

    Anyway, back on track now with the 2001 A3 TQS. Now comes the dilemma, remap or S3!

    i'm 27

    started off when i passed my test at 21 with a Fiat Punto 1.6 8v sporting. was totally standard but the moddin bug got me straight away. ended up having it about 16months

    [​IMG]

    Still loving my punto i moved on to my 1st Turbod car. a 97 Rosso red Punto GT turbo. came standard 136bhp but some mods, chip, FMIC, turbo back exhaust, decat took it to 180bhp. god i miss that car.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    i sold the Punto GT 18months later for £500 more than i bought it for. :eyebrows:

    Then moved away from the italian scene to my 1st Vag car. mk3 Ibiza cupra 20vt. bought it totally standar, which lasted a month then began to mod it. REVO, Coilovers, Blue flame exhaust, balck wheels. then it got wrote off when i went through a rather deep puddle :lmfao:

    here it was when i bought it

    [​IMG]

    and after the modding

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    After some tough negotiations with royal sun alliance i got a rather healthy payout, coupled with the money from the parts i sold i had a very healy sum from wich to step upwards to the s3 i currently have

    here it is. totally standard. For now:)

    this is not a good list but ends on a happy note:

    Vauxhall Nova 1.2 4dr DELUXE (17yrs old) - Oh yes and it was the saloon model! (died at 52,000 miles when i placed it meticously in the back of at the time the first new Volvo X70 Estate on stilts which was driven by the volvo UK Director of Insurance- it was a quick claim!)

    Fiesta 1.4 16v Si 3dr (18yrs old) (died at 42,000 miles when i was going at 30mph the right way down a one way street and another Si came round the corner very quick with a Police car behind and it went straight into me!)

    Vauxhall Astra Mk4 1.6 16v 5dr Hatch (20yrs old) (it didn't die in my hands as such but the ECU failed and by which time i had done 116,000 miles in it and the insurance company wrote it off)

    Ford Focus Zetec 1.8 (23yrs old) (Fantastic car, amazing handling, but i suspect the fact it need the rear blade suspension thingy replacing twice and a new gear box when it left my ownership after 98,000 miles that perhaps i was a tad too aggresive!)

    Volvo - not good - S40 - even worse - 2.0 Diesel - (26yrs old) uhm, i have no excuses left this was by far the most toy packed luxury car i have ever owned, in built phone, heated leather, electric everything, great ride quality, xenons, cruise, etc etc.... but i hated it, it had no soul and no life and sucked the life out of me and then one day i was driving by Listers Audi in Northampton and....

    Audi A4 1.8T Quattro 190ps (now 225bhp) (27yrs old) and i love it! it costs me a bloody fortune to run, i have had so much grief from it, its had new suspension, new CD player, gear gaiter covers, new ECU to name but a few but when the heavens open and the rain is pouring i can venture down the backroads and everything is forgiven, it has no toys, no leather, windy windows at the back it is just pure and simply a four wheel drive chassis with a steering wheel and an engine, absolutely brilliant!

    I'll add my two peneth.......

    Passed test in 1991 aged 17 and 2 months.
    1.1991 Ford Fiesta 1.1 Ghia (1980,Vreg) (in white with Brown Vinyl roof...nice)- Rolled end over end into a field. Unsurprisingly a write off.
    2.1992 Ford Fiesta 1.1 Sport (1980 Vreg) Quite what made it a sport god only knows!! Had a high speed shunt with a Horse Box Lorry. Written off.......Bugger
    3. 1992 Vauxhall Nova 1.2 (1984 A reg). Load of rubbish but sold it for double the purchase price.
    4. 1995 Ford Fiesta 1.1 Popular Plus (1984 A reg)....Well I was a student!!
