My loved and much missed Golf VR6, I loved this car, The final stage of is build was nowhere near long enough,
A combination of a dirty road and some idiot pulling out without looking in his mirror ended the cars ( and very nearly my) life,

My Corsa GSi.

Blood sweat and tears went into this over five/six years. Only bought the S3 as I wanted something more grown up to use as a daily drive.

Couple of months before it was about to get the 2L pulled out for a turbo motor it got towed off the drive and never seen again.

My precious, beautiful, perfect 205 GTI :(

I've had 40+ cars in 4 years, but this was the only one I never wanted to sell. Given the choice I'd swap it back for my A3 in a heartbeat with no questions asked.

The day Prawn and I picked him up -

My 356 Speedster, and I still have her to play with on sunny days :thumbsup:

In fact I delayed buying my S3 by 3 years to get the Speedster first, so from that you can work out that my S3 is only #2 in my car list.

My previous steed, got rid last May.
Dreamscience remap to 275bhp, and a nice 5 pot growl through a Magnex resonated cat back.
If money were no object I would still have it (18-22mpg).

Sold my Impreza RA to buy the S3,worse thing I ever did to be honest, OK so I don't have to use ear defenders and I have leather seats but it's just soooo boring.

Impreza had launch control, antilag, adj centre diff, Andy Forrest mapped, huge brakes and lots of other nice bits.

Without hesitation my 335D M Sport. Chipped and immaculate. 360 hp 640 Nm. Loved that car. Have I made a mistake? Remains to be seen......

My 2008 Honda S2000 GT

I really miss this car, but it broke my heart keeping it in tip top condition whilst being my daily driver. I'll def get another one. I like my S3 but it's just a machine. The S2000 definately had a soul :(

These are my 2 previous cars, equally my favourite.

A 110 gttdi golf, chipped, lowered with eibach dampers and springs and rolling on tt comps. Was a nice car for my age, great on fuel and admired by many as it was proper clean. The only time it let me down was when the engine try escaping because some pillock didn't correctly tighten up the upper engine mount bolts and they sheered in the block. The car went to my brother, then a mate bought it and still has it!

I then downgraded to the gti6 to free up a bit of money, but this turned out to be a wicked car, bought it with already sorted suspension, and it really was well sorted, the closest thing to a go kart iv even owned. Wasn't bad on fuel either. Kept it for a year and sold it to buy a van
