    What would be your dream car ? BMW 3 series/Vauxhall Monaro. And realistically Vauxhall Corsa/Ford Fiesta. Was looking to buy a Peugeot 106 but the pedals were really badly positioned for me and I got cramp in my leg!

    BTW, El Chueco probably doesnt earn that much! He just has parents that can afford to give him wicked cars like me.
    I'm actually thinking of getting the powers that be to swap my maserati with a cl600 sv biturbo, but these italian supercar manufacturers don't tend to like giving german counterparts to their drivers...

    When did you get your license ? 2 days before my 18th bday - could have put a downer on it but luckily i passed
    What car do you drive ? Ford Fiesta 306
    How much did it cost ? Duno coz it's the rents!!
    Do you think it was worth the money you paid ? hmm, i guess...it gets from A to B (don't know how much it cost)
    Any good/bad points about your car? YES! Bad Point - we have no power steering and the fiesta steering is VERY heavy, or ours is....my bro had one but his was fine?! Maybe there's a prob with ours. Anyway, you get used to it, and it's a good workout! - just a major prob if you need to do a maneuver quick. Not the smoothest drive - i was taught in a Ford Focus...mmmm, nice
    What would you give your car out of 10 ? 8, it's fine, nothing special
    What would be your dream car ? A silver hydrogen run car - eco-friendly and silver looks good and re-sells for most money

    When did you get your licence? July 2004.
    What car do you drive? A red (I'm a girl...) five-door diesel J-reg Peugeot 205.
    How much did it cost? £350, if I remember correctly.
    Do you think it was worth the money you paid? Easily.
    Any good/bad points about your car? Nothing (so far!) has gone wrong with the enginey bits, which is always rather nice. It's small and easy to drive, despite not having power steering (so overrated! I learnt with power steering and occasionally drive my mum's posh Volvo, but I'm just a weak little girly and even I can manage to turn the wheel myself), fairly recognisable (bright red, and, ahem, "customised" - it's been bashed a couple of times (not by me), and has a twisted arial). I have lovely new tyres on it, which my daddy bought me, and a decent radio. Bad things? Electric windows would be nice, as would a slightly easier to open sunroof and proper heating. Oh, and the gearbox can be a bit stiff, but it just needs coaxing.
    What would you give your car out of 10? For a cheap little car, I think it's pretty good. 8, maybe 9.
    What would be your dream car? A red Triumph Spitfire. I love those things.
