    Had this between 1998 - 2009 (the red one), bought as standard but I heavily modded it with body kit, alloys, suspension, heavy duty clutch, exhausts with decat, air filter, ECU, boost controller, lightweight flywheel and crank pulley amongst other stuff.
    It was crazy fast and still miss it to this day.

    A few more to add to "our" 39-years of Lotus stuff (#9, #10, and #11) and RS3copilot's previous post:

    My/our first car was a Rover 60, don't ask, purchased for £50 and sold for £50 a year later - here in a "don't take that or you'll get a smack" courtship photo:


    1959 Rover 60.JPG

    A 1964 Triumph Spitfire, mega fast in the day, really: relationship was getting strong here so off to the woods... :whip:

    1964 Triumph Spitfire.jpg
    Swapped the Spitfire for a 1967 Triumph GT6, great engine but the gearbox kept shredding 2nd gear, and that rear suspension tuck-in still had a mind of its own, however, still holding on to the "copilot" and married now... :yahoo:

    Judy and GT6 #10.jpg
    The GT6 (and RS3copilot's Spitire (love, eh!)) was swapped for the Lotus Europa Twin Cam in 1972, see previous....

    Numerous "company-provided" MG Montego Turbo's followed, including this one, "kissed" under Spaghetti junction, lol:

    MG Montego.jpg
    Took it back to Longbridge and swapped it for a green one...:yes:

    But back to "provide your own cars" and a fabulous Carlton GSI3000 supported the Lotus Elan Sprint and Plus 2:

    GSI3000a.JPG


    GSI3000b.jpg
    But after 10-years got bored and went S3; this, I thought we'd be keeping forever - and then Stafford Audi had an RS3 demonstrator, tsk:

    P1010258.JPG
    But then, alongside our still "current" RS3 and TT we needed an ambulance so back for another A2 but this time a 90bhp TD1:

    A2 TDi.JPG

    Brilliant car, but got bored with that after a while - the TT and RS3 DSG was just oh so much more - and so we went for a supercharged/turbocharged 185bhp/7-speed DSG A1 - what a cracking car, on smooth roads... :blink:

    P1030554mod.jpg

    Then just recently, tired of the "ride" the A1 got swapped for an SQ5; not much difference I'll grant you, but the SQ5 is sooo complete it beats both our current TT and RS3 for everyday use: I can strongly recommend a 2016 Aud SQ5, gob smackingly brilliant, just sayin'

    Really nice thread, really interesting seeing what other people have owned. As I've only been driving for three years my post will be a bit on the short side.

    Current, although up for sale 2.0 TDI A3 kitted out with options:
    IMG-2351.JPG

    Previous A3 1.9 TDI, loved this motor, easily the most reliable car out of the three:
    P1040105.JPG

    Aaand my first car, Golf 1. 6 FSI SE. Had quite a few problems with this troublesome car:
    MYWHIP.jpg

    Only a few cars so far but I'm excited for the coming years to see what's next.

    I've had some wierd and wonderful cars in my 13 year driving career:

    1) 2006 - First car, the obligatory Corsa. It was a 1994 1.4 8v and very slightly quicker than walking, cost me £400 and gave me 18 months of trouble free driving:
    (not my car, but similar - black bumpers...)
    corsa.jpg

    2) 2007 - a 1997 Peugeot 306 1.9 DTurbo. 92bhp of diesel power but felt like a spaceship compared to the corsa:
    306 1-1.jpg

    3) 2007 - Slightly newer Peugeot 306 DTurbo in black, I only had this a couple of month:
    306 2.jpg

    4) 2008 - First RWD: a 1996 BMW 318is Coupe, only 10bhp less than the 320i and considerably more economical.
    bmw.jpg

    5) 2008 or 2009 - Not to everyone's taste but I regret selling this car. Back to the world of peugeot, a geniune Dimma kitted Peugeot 306. Started life as the 2.0 16v S16 but ended up with a 2.2 Diesel from a 406 with BMW 330d VNT turbo, Mercedes AMG injectors, Porsche Boxter brakes, running roughly 250bhp and 550nm torque, it was a bit of a beast.

    306 3.jpg

    6 & 7) 2011 - Bit of a change of direction here but went for a 2006 Chrysler 300c 3.0 V6 diesel and a 1996 Land rover discovery 300tdi with off-road tyres, lots of fun, shame about the chrysler:

    chry.jpg

    jlr.jpg
    8) 2013 - Downsized both when i started working further away and had a 60 mile/day commute - a 2011 Citroen DS3 in yellow, 60-70mpg but aged like an old leather suitcase, i got rid when it was 4-5yr old and it felt like a 15yr old car:

    citr.jpg

    9) 2015 - My first brand new car, 2015 Skoda Octavia VRS diesel, loved it - here it is parked next to my girlfriend's abarth - also a great car:

    skod.jpg

    10) 2018 - The reason i ended up joining this forum, 2010 Audi S4 in Sprint Blue. Crashed it last week though so just waiting to see if it'll be repaired or not:

    Umm just a couple of the "old" cars I had if buses count lol
    Must try to find the Mk1 Escorts, Mk1 Gti's e.t.c. Countless SRi's and then into the quality era of Audi's and a Renault Sport Spider thrown in for luck!
    I probably only have a handful of pic's for the 20 years plus history.

    I've only been driving for just under 5 years now so I haven't owned as many cars as most of you, only just onto my second!
    The first car was a 2006 VW Polo 1.6 Sport. Quite a fun and nippy first car I think.
