Opel Corsa B 1.0 - It was a great car for beginners and only cost 250€. But it only lasted one year.
VW Golf 4 1.2 - Great car, I also drove quite long, until someone drove into my side and fled.
BMW E46 323i - A very nice car. Unfortunately a few children just jumped on the street. When I was trying to avoid them I lost my grip and crashed into a wall.
Opel Vectra C 2.2 Direct - engine failure :rolleyes:
Opel Astra H 2.0 Turbo - Sold to buy me an N.
Hyundai i30 N - :cool:

I’m hoping to buy an i30N shortly, tossing up, between it and the FK8 Civic Type R.

Anyway here’s my previous list of cars, most having been modded. I’ve got a family now too so some cars have been a bit of a compromise between performance and practicality.

1989 Toyota Corolla SX
1995 Toyota Corolla
2001 S15 Nissan 200SX
2005 Peugeot 206 GTi 180
2006 Mazda 3 MPS
2010 VW Golf GTI
2010 Forester XT
2012 Lancer Evo X
2016 Ford Focus RS
1995 Mazda MX-5
2018 WRX STi
2018 Octavia vRS wagon

The vehicle looks very cool, and was ahead of its time. As you can see, it has an important safety feature, a lap belt.
First i am thinking i wear a racing harness :). But after closer inspection i believe it is an fastening for a type of leash o_O.
Nevertheless, by my smile you can see that I already had something left for sporty cars back then ;).

Nice thread! Here are mine:

2013 Ford Fiesta ST - amazing car. no issues. a few small accidents normal for a new driver.
2014 Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy - extremely rare and good looking but had more issues than I can count.
2016 Infiniti Q50 2.0t (I don't know what was going through my head) - solid car but ride was too firm for the class and the technology was too outdated.

Traded in the Q50 for my i30N 2 weeks ago. Couldn't be happier!
Here are pics of all 4 cars:
