Passed my test just over 2 years ago, here's what I've owned.
04 Mk5 Golf 1.4 base model, my first car sold it a month ago.

97 NA Mx-5, bought it a year and a half ago now, paid €900 it needed some work.
Sold it a few months later for €1500, and I regret ever selling it.

02 NB Mx-5, had my father pick it up off a guy on Facebook, looked alright, was cheap but I found it had obviously got a bang, sold it 3 weeks later to a lady who didn't care 'it passed its test, can't be that bad'.

16 Golf Mk7 2.0 TDI - Bought it last month, it's a fine car, but I wouldn't call it fun.

The 2010s started with an M3 and ended with a turbo.

2009 - 2012 E92 M3
2013 - 2020 997 turbo

Sold the 997 in November and am without a car for the foreseeable future. Still had a great (and expensive) motoring decade though.

2010 i had a lightweight corsa c 2.0 turbo running 314bhp at the wheels lightweight bodywork poly windows recaro carbon pole positions custom brembos made for the car! Weighed around 900kg

Was perfect!

And as my daily I had a seat Ibiza fr 1.9pd130

Sold the corsa for 20k (as parts) in 2012 and was on the verge of buying a 996 turbo or a Ferrari f355 for 20k/35k

Bought a house with the money instead

Ibiza got sold in 2016 and bought a mk7 golf gti performance pack,

Golf gone and I’m shedding it in my focus estate whilst overpaying the mortgage (when not in lockdown)

R32 Mk5 (didn't gel)
C63 W204 coupe (kept for 4 years)
Cayenne S (victim of ULEZ)
F30 335i (low spec and didn't like Dakota)

and already changed car this decade (F80)

need to stop!

Well I've already admitted to owning BMW numbers 6 and 7 in the 2010s and not got flamed (yet)!

There's just something about them.

I think BMW and Mercedes have something that gets under your skin
Plus so many options of engines and models (plenty of large petrol options), lots of dealers, running costs are not crazy and reasonable second hand to buy

Bought an E46 330CI Sport in 2009, sold in 2019.

Bought a Honda Jazz in 2011, still own it ( it’s like stepping in dogmuck, stays on your shoes and you keep dragging it around ).

Replaced the E46 with a E60 550i Msport, this is my current daily driver ( the Jazz has been parked up for most of the year, since last April really ).

Not sure there's a decade's worth of "something" though :-)

I had 7 of them as well between 2006 and 2017(mostly loved them all). I've moved away now though and they just don't seem to grab me as much as they used to(their current cars are getting less and less interesting for me).

2003 Volkswagen Polo 1.9 TDi Sport (Most unreliable maintenance heavy car I've ever owned, put me off VW's for life)
1997 Nissan Primera 2.0 GT (Bought for a two week road trip, kept it for 18 months before writing it off)
1998 Vauxhall Omega 2.5 V6 (Technically still own but been sat for the last 7 years)
1992 BMW 525i Touring (Lasted about 90 minutes before it shat itself)
2011 Kia Cee'd 1.6 CRDi SW (Wife banned me from sheds after the three above so I had to buy something sensible with a warranty.)

E46 M3 (2009-2019) - one owner, kept in pristine condition (I spent £8k on it the year before I sold it as I intended to keep forever eek )


F06 M6GC - 2018-2019)


F80 M3 (2019-2020)


718 Cayman GTS 4.0 (2020 - date)


I sold the E46 as circumstances had changed and I was in a position to try something newer, but regretted it in all honesty; neither the F80 nor the F06 really felt like 'me' after I'd got over the novelty of the power and the new toys. I feel much more at home in the Cayman, so feel like I'm done changing cars for a while again.
