    Insurance killed my hopes of having a good first car!

    First car - Toyota Yaris 1.0 lol lol (I tried so hard to kill it but it lasted all the abuse I gave it)
    Second car - Mk4 Golf 1.4
    Third Car - 2001 Seat Leon 110
    Fourth Car - 2005 Passat 130 Highline
    Current Car(s) - Mk4 Golf 130 // Mk2 Golf GTI 16v

    It's definitely much better now than when I started lol

    My first car was a VW Golf IV 1999, drove it for a very long time, a good car, the engine as if eternal. My current car is the Renault Kwid. In many regions, it is not available, and no one knows what kind of car, so I will attach a link https://autoportal.com/newcars/renault/kwid/ . And now thinking about a car for my wife. Average price, like Hyundai i10. Maybe you can advise something.

    My First car was a Toyota Celica 2lt ST Liftback

    My Current car is a MK4 Golf GTI 1.8i 20v Turbo.

    Was always a fan of the old Fords, Owning 3.0 s Capri, Modified 2.0i Mk2 Escort but after buying my first MK4 Golf, which was a 2.3 V5
    I have been hooked on Golf ever since.

    Sorry, spell check changed it, Renault 19 chamade, the booted version, it was my dad car first, failed its first mot on exhaust rust, and had trouble getting one as the saloon was not so common then.
    My clio van got the William's front end with facelift bumper and interior, 16v wheels and even rarer Rsi sideskirts, grand little van.
