    Best: Skoda Rapid Convertible, brilliant on trackdays and accelerates like a rocket from the lights, great for pulling chicks n'all.

    Worst: Pagani Zonda, no room for a wheelbarrow and no spare parts kept at Halfords.

    Best would be my current BMW 135M. An amazing motor. Makes me smile everytime I hoon it around the local lanes.

    Worst by far would be a 2002 Audi A4. Possibly the most boring and depressing car ever made. Nothing went wrong. I just never wanted to drive it.

    Here's me thinking the S-type Jag had a Mk10 stylee boot unlike that Mk2 that Regan drove.

    One of the most enjoyable and quirky cars we have owned would be the Fiat Multipla which we still have even though it is twelve years old.  Without a doubt the worst car I owned recently was an Audi Q7. I knew it was a mistake as soon as I drove it home. Big, ostentatious and frankly vulgar. I traded it in for a Landrover Discovery which somehow manages to be big without being offensive.
     
  7. I always double check what I buy so I dont mess up that often.
    But I love my Ford Kuga that I have now.

    Best car by a long way was my 1989 Sierra Sapphire Cosworth. Kept it for 6 years and in a moment of madness P/ex it on the worst car I've ever owned, a 2004 Rover 220 Turbo Coupe. If that was the sort of un-reliable rubbish Rover were making, then no wonder they went bust!!!!!

    If were allowed to bring vans into the arguement, then for reliability and value for money, my 2006 2.5L Renault Trafic(brought new), would be a close second to the Cossie.

  9. If its vans or trucks then it was my beloved Toyota High Lux truck. Never let me down and broke my heart when I sold it.
    Loved that truck.

    "I hit a cat with your car on the way home." said my girlfriend.

    "Was it a black one?" I laughed.

    "No", she said, "it was a big yellow one with tracks instead of wheels.

    I'm surprised anyaone would admit to owning a Vectra. It's like confessing that you vote Liberal....
     
  15. My Zafira is s***-hot.

    And, what's wrong with voting Liberal?

    anyrode back to topic, yes littlemonfromdarnnsarfff, the boot was slopey like a mark 10 unlike morse's jag, but it had the same front as morse's, it had 2 petrol tanks and you switched over the petrol gauge from a toggle switch on the dash,

    vans? I've never had a bad van, just lucky I guess each one I've bought, as been the best so far.
