    @Fowlers Focus, I live in one of the lowest insurance rate areas in the UK.

    Its actually cheaper for me to insure my vehicles where I live now than when I lived in Cornwall!

    1976 Mk4 Cortina 2.3 V6 Ghia purchased 1984 – not a bad first car, only had 13k miles

    1982 Alfasud TiX (special edition for the UK only) purchased 1986 – great little drivers car, looked great and went very well, riddles with the brown stuff though

    1983 Capri 2.8 injection, early 5 speed model, purchased 1988 – cardinal red with obligatory stripes on bonnet and sides, also full body kit

    1989 TVR 2.8S purchased 1991 – entry level TVR at the time, a very happy 23 year old and miserable girlfriend who got jealous

    1991 TVR 400SE purchased 1994 – now we’re talking, a proper TVR based on a 3.9 Rover V8 engine. Wedge shape didn’t suit everyone and become dated, but I think they look great (and sound amazing as these were pre-cat)

    1994 TVR Griffith 500 purchase 2001 and still own – still scares me, 340BHP in a 1100Kg car with no electronic aids, ABS or even power steering equals lots of fun

    2004 Audi A3 sport purchased new for company use

    2004 Audi A4 sport purchased 2006 again for company use

    2006 Golf Gti Mk5 purchased 2010 – great cars and return to form for VW

    2008 Golf Gti MK5 purchased 2012

    2009 BMW E92 335i coupe purchased 2014 – great car, lots of power and better to drive than the Audi which I sold it for. Fragile though, low mileage car suffered with expensive gremlins and cracked wheels which BMW knew about and did bugger all about.

    2011 Audi S5 V8 purchased 2016 – ultimately disappointing, looked and sounded fantastic, but felt lethargic and dull as dishwater to drive. Drank fuel for fun (averaged 19MPG)

    2017 Focus RS purchased new, I’ve seen the light!

    @scott.t cool you owned a Fiesta Supersport. This was always the car I wanted to be my first car as when I was 16 there was a black one in the garage I worked in being repaired for ages after it had been in a front end smash. I was hoping to buy it when it was finished but the owner ended up keeping it and I ended up with a Morris Marina. BTW Supersports are really rare and a mint one could be worth as much as early MK3 RS Focus now. When I was 17 good ones were about £2500. Did you keep yours?
