Look like you went down a similar path to me! Peugeot didn't sell a car I wanted to buy after the Rallye/ GTi 6. Must confess you couldn't get 2 different hot hatches - I think the S3 was about 300 kgs heavier!

Passed my test October 28th 1999, passed my test in a 106 1.1 which was hard work. First car I got to drive on my own was a 1.6 Renault Megane of my mums, owned a couple of 1.2 Clios until I got to 21 and bought a new Clio 172 which in Autumn of 2003.



Loved that car, had it over two years and used it daily.

Entered noughties in an H reg Ren 19 1.7 TXE (I think), fast & frugal, until the HG went. Had it repaired but never felt the same afterwards

C reg Mk2 Golf 1.1 (poverty spec)
Fiat Tempra Estate 1.9TD
Rover 218 SLdT
Saab NG 900 XS 2.0, not fast or frugal, but comfy as feck. Was gutted when it put a rod through the block on the A505 at Baldock
Mk1 Primera 1.6 LX, nippy as it weighed fk all, unbelievably frugal, regularly 40-45 mpg, best was 58mpg

First kid in 02, chopped OHs Corsa for an ex-demo 9 month old 51 reg 1.8 vvti Corolla Verso, which saw out the rest of the noughties
