Thread: How many cars have you owned?

  1. #151
    Just to simplify and clarify (and because I couldn't be arsed going through that extensive list.. ),
    what exactly is the update Jim?

    I currently own 3, which is pathetic / embarrassing in comparison to you.

    Oh yes, tell us a story, Jim

    I know some of it, but I'm waiting for the big reveal before I chip in with my nonsense.

    ~ Shit

    A reasonably mixed bag there.
    • Longest tenure was probably my 996 Turbo which I had for three and a bit years.
    • Favourite is a toss-up between my Boxster and the V70, both of which I had some great adventures at the 'Ring in.
    • Best built is hands-down our family Golf R.
    • It'd tie for fastest cross-country too, with the Turbo winning on the big roads and the Golf leaving it for dead on super-twisty stuff.
    • Most turbo lag goes to either of the Volvos, though the V70 might take for having more power when the boost finally kicked in (yo).
    • Most power goes to the 996 Turbo, which had around 540bhp after a visit to Nine Excellence.
    • Best sound...tricky. I loved the sports exhaust on the Boxster, but the C55 had a dirty AMG noise. I'll give this one to the Porsche.
    • Worst car by far was the mk4 Golf. Heavy, slow, thirsty and unreliable. What a crock.
    • Most missed is probably the Rangie. I wish we could have kept that.

    Ian set the rule no company cars. A few of us, myself included, included ones we paid for & spec'd, and could have bought new/leased for the same price as the company car's lack of deal cost us :D

    Total: 27!

    From NL = 3
    From eBay = 7
    From known People = 6
    New from Dealers = 4
    Autotrader = 2 (3, 911 was on AT too)
    PH / Other Classifieds = 4
    Facebook = 1

    Porsche = 1
    BMW = 7
    VW = 7 (4 vans)
    Mazda = 4 (all MX5s)
    Renault = 2 (both Clios IIs)
    Ford = 2
    Other = 4

    RWD = 15
    FWD = 12
    4WD = 0


    1. 1983 VW Polo - 1.3 GL - Bought from our neighbour. My first car :D
    2. 2000 Ford Ka - New from Ford with a year's free insurance (worth a fortune at 18 living/at uni in Portsmouth and parking on the street) - POS - Total dog of a car from day one, and nightmare with Hendy Ford Portsmouth
    3. 2001 Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Dynamique - After a rave review on Topgear and two test drives, bought new from Renault (a dealership I worked for at 16 gave me a great deal) with another year's free insurance. Great apart from the door trim fell off on day 1.
    4. 1994 VW Corrado - 2.0 9a 16v - Bought from a family friend, my dream car at the time. LOVED IT.
    5. 1998 VW T4 - 2.4D SWB 1200 - Blind eBay bid, super cheap and an adventure / total punt.
    6. 2003 Lotus Elise - S2 Sport Tourer 1.8 K series - Pistonheads, paid for an RAC inspection and took it to JCT600 in Leeds for a spanner check before handing funds over.
    7. 1998 VW T4 - 2.5 TDI LWB - A1Surf Classifieds, saw the ad and put a deposit within 4 hours of it coming online. Far too cheap and decided it was worth a punt if it was half as good as described. Sold the van 5 years later for the same price (and 60k more miles on it)
    8. 1994 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.8 RS Ltd - Bought from a friend (KurtR on here, before NL days)
    9. 2002 BMW M3 - E46 - Pistonheads, the car went to a specialist to be checked and I loosely knew the guy selling it
    10. 1990 RAW Striker - 2.0l Redtop - Ebay special, never got to drive it as it was part shared with a friend, and a stupid idea.
    11. 2001 VW Polo - 1.4 tdi Sport - SC’s first car. Sold to my parents.
    12. 2009 Ford Fiesta - Zetec S TDCI - First company car - Another POS, last Ford I'll own.
    13. 1978 VW Bay Window Camper - Tiaga Green Bay Westie - Bought from a friend (a VW/Porsche Dealer) for a crazy price to help him invest in a 911.
    14. 2003 Mazda MX5 - mk2.5 1.8 SVT - Ebay, small deposit and cash on collection after a test drive and inspection
    15. 2000 VW T4 Caravelle - 2.5 TDI SWB - Ebay, but from a used car dealership in Derby. No deposit and a deal with the mx5 as part-x (made £500 on the mx5 :D).
    16. 1992 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.6 - Total E-bay punt. Failed to sell on ebay so I made a cash offer and went to collect it unseen.
    17. 1996 BMW 328i - e36 Coupe with LSD - Bought from NL's Simon Saunders, loved it and trusted Si fully. Shame it was crashed into and written off.
    18. 1989 BMW 325i - e30 - Bought from NL. Least said, soonest mended :(
    19. 2012 BMW 116ed - F21 - Company car no.2 - UBER :D. Love it way too much.
    20. 1994 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.8 RS Ltd - Lots of pleading PMs to Steve C - Very pleased persistence paid off
    21. 2005 SAAB 9-3 Sportwagon - 1.9 tdi Vector Sport - eBay from a local(isn) dealership, went to view it and drove 10 other cars before negotiating a deal with a 3-month warranty. Warranty came in handy, to say the least!
    22. * 2007 BMW E61 530d - Lovely spec but a bit rough round the edges - Private from Poole, found on Autotrader.
    23. 2005 Audi A3 2.0 TDI Sportback - Purchased from my Sister, who we helped buy it from Audi (1 owner / low miles and very tidy). Sold for a bargain to my other sister.
    24. 2009 BMW 116i Sport- E87 LCI - Autotrader, 1 owner, FSH and tidy spec (Xenons, Logic 7 and sport seats)
    25. * Renault Clio 182 Cup - 110k £1500 Facebook special
    26. * 2013 BMW 116d DE - F20 - eBay, trader - I’d use again (http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/dealerexch...53.m1438.l2754 + http://www.fleetsalesleicester.co.uk/ ) - fBMWsh (very high spec)
    27. * 1998 Porsche 996 C2 - PH and Autotrader, lots of owners, FSH, ‘well worn’ but dream spec (LSD, Black leather sports seats, no sunroof, early, manual)

    * = Still own

    In order too :D

    An overdue update here too - a * implies currently owned.

    Good old Dad funded:

    1986 Panda 750L (rolled it)
    1992 Fiesta 1.4 Flight (handed on to my brother)

    I bought:
    1992 Clio 1.9 D (cheap commuter)
    1989 E30 320i 2 door (first proper car)
    1999 Puma 1.7 (great little thing, serious engine problem, lashed up and moved on)
    2001 Yamaha FZS 600 Fazer (first bike, not a bad way to start)
    2000 Skoda 2.0 8v (stop gap)
    1999 MX-5 1.8iS (great fun that)
    2005 GSXR 600 K5 (few nice tweaks, brilliant commuter, got chased by the Police..., subsequently stolen)
    2003 Mini Cooper S (didn't click... Needed another 40bhp, proper tyres and an LSD)
    1986 DR350 (project - never touched it!)
    1986 DR350 (spares bike)
    1996 328i Sport (brilliant thing, sold to and written off by Brando)
    2000 Caterham 7 Superlight (loved it, then ignored it)
    2001 Honda Blackbird (tweaked, quick comfy commuter but a bit meh)
    2008 Ibiza 1.4 (came with the wife)
    2003 BMW Z4 3.0 (made me smile up to 8/10s)
    2005 XC90 D5 (practical wagon - subsequently took on a lot of water directly into the ECU...)
    2014 Kia Sportage 1.7D (brand new, for the wife)
    2001 Saxo VTS (comedy track car)
    *2016 Leon Cupra 290 (current daily)
    *2017 Skoda Superb Estate 1.4T (wifeís car. She *loves* it)
    *2001 Kawasaki ZX6R

    My last post made reference to getting another bike, so glad that I followed through with that!

    Cupra would have gone and been replaced by now if I had found a buyer in late summer. Selling / getting a replacement is now scheduled for springtime.

    Partners or encounters?

    I guess it throws up the same problem as owned cars and company cars - itís all about buying or renting.....
    I've done it 'cos Gary told me to.....

    Total: 28 (30 looming closer...)

    From NL = 3
    From eBay = 7
    From known People = 7
    New from Dealers = 4
    Autotrader = 2 (3, 911 was on AT too)
    PH / Other Classifieds = 5
    Facebook = 1

    Porsche = 1
    BMW = 8
    VW = 7 (4 vans)
    Mazda = 4 (all MX5s)
    Renault = 2 (both Clios IIs)
    Ford = 2
    Other = 4

    RWD = 16
    FWD = 12
    4WD = 0

    1. 1983 VW Polo - 1.3 GL - Bought from our neighbour. My first car :D
    2. 2000 Ford Ka - New from Ford with a year's free insurance (worth a fortune at 18 living/at uni in Portsmouth and parking on the street) - POS - Total dog of a car from day one, and nightmare with Hendy Ford Portsmouth
    3. 2001 Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Dynamique - After a rave review on Topgear and two test drives, bought new from Renault (a dealership I worked for at 16 gave me a great deal) with another year's free insurance. Great apart from the door trim fell off on day 1.
    4. 1994 VW Corrado - 2.0 9a 16v - Bought from a family friend, my dream car at the time. LOVED IT.
    5. 1998 VW T4 - 2.4D SWB 1200 - Blind eBay bid, super cheap and an adventure / total punt.
    6. 2003 Lotus Elise - S2 Sport Tourer 1.8 K series - Pistonheads, paid for an RAC inspection and took it to JCT600 in Leeds for a spanner check before handing funds over.
    7. 1998 VW T4 - 2.5 TDI LWB - A1Surf Classifieds, saw the ad and put a deposit within 4 hours of it coming online. Far too cheap and decided it was worth a punt if it was half as good as described. Sold the van 5 years later for the same price (and 60k more miles on it)
    8. 1994 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.8 RS Ltd - Bought from a friend (KurtR on here, before NL days)
    9. 2002 BMW M3 - E46 - Pistonheads, the car went to a specialist to be checked and I loosely knew the guy selling it
    10. 1990 RAW Striker - 2.0l Redtop - Ebay special, never got to drive it as it was part shared with a friend, and a stupid idea.
    11. 2001 VW Polo - 1.4 tdi Sport - SC’s first car. Sold to my parents.
    12. 2009 Ford Fiesta - Zetec S TDCI - First company car - Another POS, last Ford I'll own.
    13. 1978 VW Bay Window Camper - Tiaga Green Bay Westie - Bought from a friend (a VW/Porsche Dealer) for a crazy price to help him invest in a 911.
    14. 2003 Mazda MX5 - mk2.5 1.8 SVT - Ebay, small deposit and cash on collection after a test drive and inspection
    15. 2000 VW T4 Caravelle - 2.5 TDI SWB - Ebay, but from a used car dealership in Derby. No deposit and a deal with the mx5 as part-x (made £500 on the mx5 :D).
    16. 1992 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.6 - Total E-bay punt. Failed to sell on ebay so I made a cash offer and went to collect it unseen.
    17. 1996 BMW 328i - e36 Coupe with LSD - Bought from NL's Simon Saunders, loved it and trusted Si fully. Shame it was crashed into and written off.
    18. 1989 BMW 325i - e30 - Bought from NL. Least said, soonest mended :(
    19. 2012 BMW 116ed - F21 - Company car no.2 - UBER :D. Love it way too much.
    20. 1994 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.8 RS Ltd - Lots of pleading PMs to Steve C - Very pleased persistence paid off
    21. 2005 SAAB 9-3 Sportwagon - 1.9 tdi Vector Sport - eBay from a local(isn) dealership, went to view it and drove 10 other cars before negotiating a deal with a 3-month warranty. Warranty came in handy, to say the least!
    22. *2007 BMW E61 530d - Lovely spec but a bit rough round the edges - Private from Poole, found on Autotrader.
    23. 2005 Audi A3 2.0 TDI Sportback - Purchased from my Sister, who we helped buy it from Audi (1 owner / low miles and very tidy). Sold for a bargain to my other sister.
    24. 2009 BMW 116i Sport- E87 LCI - Autotrader, 1 owner, FSH and tidy spec (Xenons, Logic 7 and sport seats)
    25. *2005 Renault Clio 182 Cup - 110k £1500 Facebook special
    26. *2013 BMW 116d DE - F20 - eBay, trader - I’d use again (http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/dealerexch...53.m1438.l2754 + http://www.fleetsalesleicester.co.uk/ ) - fBMWsh (very high spec)
    27. 1998 Porsche 996 C2 - PH and Autotrader, lots of owners, FSH, ‘well worn’ but dream spec (LSD, Black leather sports seats, no sunroof, early, manual)
    28. *2007 BMW 130i Sport - e87 - Babybmw, FSH lots of mods, few things to fix, high miles but drives very nicely and a great spec.
