Whats The Best Car You Ever Owned?

Whats the best car you ever owned?

Heres mine, a 325i compact - absolutely fabulous car. Ran without fault for 3 years, not even a squeak, built like a tank.....just hope my forthcoming 135 is going to be as satisfying. Still see it driving around locally - jealous!

Regret selling it big time

I've always had VAG cars and my current Seat Leon Cupra R has to be the best I've had so far... going to be a bit of a change coming over to BMW!

I'm expecting delivery of a 120d coupe in AW sometime towards te end of September / early October - just hoping the leap from 225hp fwd to only 177hp at the rear isn't too much of a shock!!!

I had an 07 Rav4, and that thing was absurdly reliable, quick (264 ponies), and good on gas (better than the 1).

As far as the fun factor goes, the 1.

1995 Mazda Miata. It was basic, balanced and beautiful.

I expect my 1 Series, when I get one, may trump the Miata.

Its a tie for my daily driver. My old 2000 m5 and my 2009 135i.
My 1966 Chevy II is the one I will never sell, so maybe a 3 way tie

Ford Explorer 1996 2door 4.0L, 298000 miles and the only thing I replace besides normal wear and tear parts, was the Transmission once at 200k.

The 135i is pretty good too

Believe it or not my 1987 Rabbit GTI. 90hp and loved to redline like crazy. We've lost sight of how much fun small car can be.

My '65 Pontiac GTO has a special place in my heart. Next is my '95 E36 M3 LTW, followed closely by my '88 E30 M3.

Seats are awesome vehicles. Spent nine years in Germany saw them flying down the autobahn all the time.
