I bought my Abarth 595 with the intention of giving it to her when she passed her test. She passed in September last year so it is now hers smile

Ford Ka - Lasted 6 months before rot took over.
Fiat 500 - bought new in green.
Nissan Qashqai - bought for space.
She did recently say she liked the Cupra Ateca, so will likely look at them once the showrooms re-open.

In that time, I've had:

Megane 265
Fiesta ST
Megane 250 x2
BMW M135i
EP3 type R
E92 M3, which I currently have.

I purchased this to replace my X5. Less than a week later it was owned by my wife and has been her daily for the past 2 years. She loves it.

My wife has always had cars that i think most blokes would be happy to drive

Started off with
B3 Audi 80
B4 Audi 80 Sport
Mk2 Golf 16v
Corrado 16v in Nugget Yellow
Audi TT 3.2

Now rocking a Mk5 Golf R32

She is a saleswoman at the Local BMW dealer, and her demos after her probationary period were either Petrol, Convertible, 6 cylinder or a combination of the 3
420i Gran Coupe
118i M Sport
220i Convertible
230i M Sport
240i Convertible
M2
440i Gran Coupe
240i Convertible

Safe to say she likes her cars, despite the lure of a new BMW demo she prefers driving the R32.

Yaris Hybrid.

It's absolutely perfect for her needs and costs buttons to run.

She has a newer shape Fiat panda, which replaced an older Fiat panda biggrin

It's actually a very good car. Bought at 1yr old for 6k or so, interesting Interior, still looks new. It's in a blue turquoise colour & the quality of the paint used is fantastic, way better than you find on most premium cars.

Mine has no interest in cars, despite doing on average 500 miles a week! She had an Aygo when we got together, which has to be the most inappropriate car I can think of for that sort of mileage, but she values economy and easy parking more than I do. One day I attended an RTC where a golf had lost it, hit a tree then rolled into the front of an articulated lorry. We got the guy out and he was surprisingly alive given the circumstances, I said to my watch manager that I imagined in days gone by he never would have made it, to which he replied that even these days, if he had been driving something like an Aygo (he had no idea my mrs drove one) he would be dead. Now she drives a VW smile

My wife has a Clio RS (picked by me) which she loves. She appreciates nice cars but doesn't get excited about them. She really likes Jag F Types, but would never buy one as owning something with 2 seats in her mind is just madness. Even though it's just the two of us so not like we need extra doors and seats for kids.

With the endless lockdown free time available i set her the time waster challenge of picking herself a new car.... lasted about 10 minutes and she was bored.

My wife currently has a convertible Audi TT The v6 3,2 version oh she also insisted on it being a manual.
She is looking at updating it and likes the look of the Jag F-type but is disappointed that the 5Lt v8 only comes in auto.

Mine refused to get an auto. I did suggest while I hate them she should at least _try_ one to see if she gets on with them but her logic was that given how long she tends to keep cars this is probably the last time she'll be _able_ to get a manual.

This was my other half's choice of sensible 'mum' car a CLS350. To be honest it's been extremely good, she doesn't so much with it other than service it and use it day to day. Only required a new window mechanism and service items until recently as we're waiting on some camber bolts to be fitted. Excellent car for the money really.

The Mrs has a GT one of these, exactly like this as a manual and was doing about 20k miles a year in it until lockdown. She had the 2017 model before but loves the extra power, noise and auto rev matching in the new one. Oh, and the heated steering wheel laugh



I get to clean and top it up.... whistle
