    They’re all good enough reasons.

    A lad I used to work with bought a Jimny as an “emergency” Winter car. He ended up using it all the time and still has well o’er 10 years after first buying it.

    Sent from Yorkshire wi an hint o’ sarcasm.

    Passed my test in 1997 at 17....

    1997 - 205 1.1l white tin can

    1998 - 205 1.6 GTi, was killed by a tree

    1998 - 205 1.6 GTi converted it to an Mi16, sold it to Neil in 2007 I think it was

    2000 - E30 325 Sport - second car for when the 205 was in the garage, which was a lot!!

    2002 - R53 Cooper S, one of the first 20 in Scotland... modified it a little bit

    2005 - sensible family 4 door saloon, Evo VIII

    2006 - husband made me sell Evo and get an E43 330d, I nearly divorced him, that car was dull, had it 6 weeks before I ordered.....

    2007 - RenaultSport Megane 225 Cup Lux, best car I’ve ever owned, still have it and not sure I’ll ever part with it

    2016 - R56 Mini Cooper S, biggest mistake ever, loved the car but spent more than twice what I paid for it just trying to get it to run, swapped it for.....

    2019 - R53 Mini Cooper S.... search criteria for next car is in place.
