    When did you get your license ? Nov 2004
    What car do you drive ? Used to be a Pug 106 (M) 1L XN, now its a Ford Escort (R) 1.4 CL
    How much did it cost ? First was £1400, second £1500
    Do you think it was worth the money you paid ? First one was a great car, not worth the money. Second one is also a good car and has lots of nicities like electric windows and an interchanger!
    Any good/bad points about your car? 106 was small which was good (because fuel economy was so damn good and it was easy to use when I worked for pizza hut delivering pizzas) but also bad because I needed to swap it for a bigger car in the escort to get stuff to and from uni
    What would you give your car out of 10 ? First one about 6, second about 7 (I think a lot of people are overrating their cars on here btw!
    What would be your dream car ? Citroen 7CV (one of them black ones the resistance used in the second world war)

    addict- why the WRX and not STI?
    No insurance group would touch me with the STI at 18, but quite a few allowed me to have the WRX. The WRX still has 230bhp and AWD, so its still amazingly quick!
    Ill probably get something more powerful at the end of the year since I will have 3 years NCB.

    When did you get your license? January 2002

    What car do you drive? Daewoo Matiz (she's orange!)

    How much did it cost? £2,600 second-hand (when she was four years old - they're now being made by Chevrolet and are about £6k brand new)

    Do you think it was worth the money you paid? Absolutely.

    Any good/bad points about your car? I couldn't ask for anything more perfect. She has a very small engine (0.8l) but is exactly what I need for driving around London. Gets up to 90-odd on the motorway with no problems, has central locking, power steering, ABS, air con, twin airbags and alloy wheels, and she manoevres like nothing else in the whole world.
    She's also physically very small (can park anywhere) but has loads of space on the inside. Does 51mpg on the motorway (about 46 around town, I think) and a tank of petrol costs £26. Excellent value for money, and she passed her MOT with flying colours.
    Only bad point is the engine size, but that only means putting her in a lower gear going up hills. Because she's very light, she's got plenty of oomph.

    What would you give your car out of 10? 10

    What would be your dream car? I already own it.

    EDIT: And she's in the lowest possible insurance group. And she's beautiful.

    When did you get your license? August 2004

    What car do you drive? 1.6i Astra Mk3

    How much did it cost? £1050

    Do you think it was worth the money you paid? Well its never let me down once, so yea, however I wouldnt pay that price for it now.

    Any good/bad points about your car? Lots of room inside (I'm 6'3"), Its relyable and was good fun to work on. Bad points would be stupid vauxhall stuff, like having to take apart near the whole dash just to remove the heater control bulbs.
