    I drive a delightful M Reg Fiat Tipo. Looks awful but handles like a dream, suspension is surpisingly stiff and it's light for a car with a 1.4. Pity the brakes are pathetic though. And the electrics are knackad, the petrol gauge randomly flickers so you're never entirely sure how much fuel you have and the front left headlight often goes dim so you have to get out and kick it. And the drivers side mirror is held on with Duck tape.

    All in all a quirky car that can be driven into hedges at speed with minimal damage.

    Blue Audi S3, no tho not so handy for carrying tubas, think need to go for an S4 estate next time! Pretty fast, 210bhp, 4WD, not insurance friendly, not pot-hole friendly, just 25mpg and DEFINATLY not for going thru hedges at speed!! ;)

    Black Ford Mondeo 1.8 turbodiesel 4 door sedan (previous model). Engine power is awfull, and the car is starting to need regular repairs (it's 8 years old with 190000km), but all in all, I'm not complaining...

    You should have no complaints... Beneath the bonnet you have practically the same car as the Jaguar S-Type...

    No, it's the old 90hp TD engine (the Duratorq), not one of the newer TDCI Common Rail diesel engines (like used in the S-type)

    I have a Jaguar SE and it is a dream to drive - all you have to do is steer it!

    Also have had Mercedes, BMW, and Porche in the past, but I still prefer the Jaguar SE as it is the daddy of them all

    I drive a Citroen Saxo!!

    W Reg, navy blue, 1.1, 3 door - not bad for my first car! Haven't crashed it yet, and in a couple of weeks I will have owned it for a year! :)

    What does "w reg" or "s reg" mean?

    I drive a K-Reg Volvo 440Xi. It's a shed on wheels. But it gets me from A to B. Mostly.

    Once I qualify as a driving instructor I'll go for something a bit more, um, less, brick-shaped...

    The year in which it was made.

    The lower in the alphabet it is, i.e. A, B the older it is.

    W = 2000 i think... etc...

    04 Renault Clio, metallic blue, very girly, goes well, particularily on the motorways. Doesn't handle hitting badgers quite so well.

    Well at the moment we've not got letters anymore.

    a typical # plate is: RA05 LMA

    the first two letters are where it's from
    the 1st number is either a 0 or a 5, 0 if it's in March, 5 if it's August?
    and the second number is the year, i.e. 5= 2005.

    The last numbers are random! :)
