Thought it would be fun to start this thread so I will get the ball rolling.

I currently drive a 2004 Audi S4 and in December get my new 2005 model RS4 Sedan. Smile Smile

Rover 416. Bought it on the day they went into liquidation! What a plonker! No, seriously it's much more reliable and economical than my last one which was a Vauxhall Cavalier. I can get twice the mileage out of it which means I can go to the airfield twice as many times on a full tank!

That's gotta be a plus!

Saab 9-3, new in September 2004. Previously was a company car - Citroen C5.

The Saab's fantastic!! The Citroen was okay for 18 months, then it had so many problems that weren't able to be fixed by the dealers, it was unreal - glad to be rid of it in the end.

A black Vauxhall Astra 2.0 DTi CD estate, with the rear windows blacked out to keep me dog cool.

Not a common car here or in the UK (There were less than 100 imported to Aus, and there's literally only a handful in the UK - there should be a few getting around NZ though, Ned), I drive a Eunos (Mazda) Cosmo. It's a sleek luxury coupe with heaps of leather, electric everything, and a twin-turbocharged triple rotor engine. Smile

My car is a 2 yr old black Volkswagen Golf (only 1.6 though Sad ) but I can still drive it VERY fast Wink It is okay for geting me to work in Stratford upon Avon. It isn't bad, but I would prefer a NEW Golf GTi, or even more preferable a Merc. (BLME has got his own toy - a BRAND NEW Triumph Tiger - with panniers and top box Cool )

Now one month old Renault Clio, black, 3 doors. Comfortable, fast, reliable and it's got everything i could imagine. Pretty darn good for a second car i think.

I have a 1994 Chevy Camaro, Z28. I purchased it thru a US Army program while I was stationed in Germany. They had it delivered to me in Bremerhaven, It is about an 8 hour drive back to my base south of there. What a wonderful car to have over there and drive around the autobahns in. Not many BMW's or Mercadies passed me. It was a bit of an oddity as well, got many a look. Still have it 11 years later with 166,000 miles on it. It will still go 130 mph and its paid for as well.
Also have a 99 Chevy Silverado 4X4 extended cab Pick Up that I just paid off a few months ago. 120,000 miles and a great ride as well.

I haven't got one but I can borrow one. Let's say that the car from James Bond would be great!
Flying, driving and floating... What do you want more? Very Happy
