What car did you come from?

1981 Kadett D 1,3l
1984 / 1987 Kadett E GSI (5 different cars)
1987 Kadett E Cabrio
1995 Calibra V6
1999 BMW E46 328i
2006 Ford Focus ST MK 2
2013 Ford Focus ST MK 3
2019 Hyundai i30N (since 3 Days)
 
2001 Honda Accord LX - still have it, runs perfectly
2008 Dodge Caliber SXT - mostly reliable, two +$1,000 repairs throughout ownership

As well as the I30N performance I also own a 1994 Toyota GT4 ST205 WRC. It's a 2 litre turbo 3SGTE engine making around 240bhp with 4WD. This is the car that got Toyota banned from WRC for cheating :oops:
The example that I own was the original Toyota press car. Clarkson drove it on TopGear and it appeared in several of the motoring magazines in 1994. I have an original Toyota press pack and copies of the magazines. Nice to have the history with it :) She's currently in for a full respray. View attachment 5415
Here is the link to Clarkson driving my car in '94. He went with the Cosworth on price!


Looks would have swung it for me to be honest. A mad looking work of art versus a box on wheels :cool:

Driven: too many to count. Was a technician for a few different dealership brands for many years as well as a few small shops in between so I've been around the block so to speak. Most notable mentions that I can think of off the top of my head: 997 Porsche GT3, 1st gen Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi R8 V8 & V10s, Audi RS6, Audi RS4, a few Skyline GT-Rs, a few R35 GT-Rs, etc. etc.

Big fan of the Stagea, or any high performance 'longroof' for that matter. Good that you kept it ;).

I absolutely love it! I don't think I'll ever get rid of it to be honest, I was thinking ahead when I bought it. Nobody can tell me to sell it and get a practical family car, it is one! Lmao.

Just one that's show-car quality (it's currently in the body shop getting restored+repainted) with 700+awhp and all supporting mods :D. But I can still fit a 6 foot table in the back and haul it home!

Nothing quite like the shriek of an off-its-head RB26. Can't think of a better way to get the kids screaming on the way home from Ikea.

Nissan Navara N-Guard
i30N

I'm still driving the N-Guard atm for work, 2.4litre twin turbo diesel with around 190bhp and capable of doing 46mpg....it's a beast.
 
Wow everyone has already had so many cars on here. My history is basically a 2015 Polo bluemotion, which was actually pretty cool as a first car, really comfortable, low consumption just way to slow :D
After that I temporarily drove a 2008 Audi TT 1.8 TFSI from my parents and I guess now I'm here.
Saying the I30 N is the best car I've ever driven is probably a bit vague but it definitely is.

Honda Civic 1.6 16v (british rover)
Clio 1.9d
