2015 - VW Up! (new)
2017 - Bicycle
2018 - Another Bicycle
2018 - BMW i3 (second hand)
2020 - VW ID.3 (new)

The biggest challenge we had is whether to get another car at all - though the i3 sold us on the fun-to-drive element so we persevered!

Vauxhall Viva (Firenza style coupe version)
Opel Monza
Pontiac Trans Am (bought it, realised I couldn’t afford the insurance, sold it back to the guy as he regretted selling it a week later)
Mk3 Escort XR3 (normally aspirated version. Awful car)
Mk1 Ford Fiesta
Mk2 Vauxhall Astra (cheap runaround as I’d got into bikes)
Mk4 Fiesta (First new car also first married shared car)
Mk1 MX5 (additional to Fiesta)
Mk4 VW Golf (New. Back to one car, wife not happy about selling the MX)
Mazda RX-8 (new. Loved that car. Oil consumption not as bad as reported. Fuel consumption horrendous)
Mk1 Ford KA (yeah one car just not enough, especially when it’s an RX-8)
Mk2 Mazda 6 (new. Replaced RX after never happy with it after accident repair)
Mk3 Mazda MX-5 (new. KA proved entropy. Wife happy again. Will keep as long as repairable, the car that is)
Mk3 Audi A4 S-Line (replace Mazda 6. In terms of expectation vs reality, the worst car I’ve owned)
Mk2 Landrover Freelander (new. Loved this as well and kinda wish I still had it, although that’s rose coloured history glasses for ya)
Mk2 VW Tiguan SEL (new. Replaced Freelander. Making way for ID-3)
VW T5.1 (van converted into camper and currently no plans to sell it)

ID-3 on order.
