    2018 Fiesta ST with the performance pack. Launch control is fun.

    Enough performance without costing a furtune to run.

    4 Series Gran Coupe M Sport and a Seat Arona.

    No issues with the Beemer and next to none on the 3 Series before it; a sensor and a spark plug.

    Bmw 520d

    * is doing my nut in the now, boot has seized shut, one of my window wiper arms has decided to come completely off, low profile tyres are forever needing * replaced and I think I have a hole in my exhaust.

    Might put a few quid into tuning it up but MOT and insurance is up in july so might get rid then, I'll think about it...

    I've stepped back from buying expensive cars at the moment. I'm saving up for something a bit special.

    The car market is slowing and I anticipate the car finance market will take a bigger hit soon enough. I'm hoping some car prices will come down, but It'll probably just be the plethora of diesel German cars.

    had it for over 2 years now, no issues, felt like a big upgrade on a * corsa thing.
    am not into this stuff, would rather see free public transport like they have in such incredibly rich countries like Estonia.....
    once this is introduced in Scotland - cars can go tae faek in my books

    I had zero issues with my old bmw 330d the engine was bullet proof and could take a hammering.

    Currently knocking about in a saab 9-3 TTID Aero, had it over a year now and put some stupid miles on it and its only ever needed tyres.

    That tends to be my way of thinking... It's a bit of metal why would anyone spend 1000's on something that will rust. I guess it is why I'm going for a BMW or Audi - can still get some money back when I sell it on

    Mind would have been a lot worse if It didn't hit the steel crash plate just in behind the bumper.
    How did I hit the bollard, reversing into a well marked out parking space that some idiot put a 3ft steel bollard at the front off, couldn't see it in the mirrors just the white parking box lines. Really need to start putting my faith in the parking camera more. Cunty Cunty *

    I've not had a shot of the new ST yet. The new normal Fiesta is a really good car. The ST should be good fun.

    Do they all have flat shift fitted as standard, or is that an option?

    The GT86 is a cracking little car. They are great fun.

    A lot of people completely miss the point of them and think purely about acceleration figures. They are a little thirsty and need worked a bit even for normal driving.

    I bumped into a guy from Leeds who was a season ticket holder heading to the game at Hampden vs Aberdeen. Surely not eh?!

    I drive a golf myself, cracking motors. Automatic as well, nae * about with clutches and gears.
