some people seem to change cars more often than their clothes

in my 40 years (omg!) of motoring I have only had a...

Morris Traveller - including woodworm

Austin Mini - green with a white roof (reg 1944 FD - if only I'd kept that)

Sunbeam Alpine - white, and generally with only 3 working cylinders

Vauxhall Viva *2 - both run into the ground, when they used as much oil as petrol

Opel Manta * 3 - one crashed by son#2, other passed to son#1

E30 325iSE - sold to pay for the M3

E30 315is (SWMBO's) - written off by son#2

E30 M3

E36 325i (SWMBO's)

errr - that's it

Cats know your every thought.

But don't care.

My only car not a BMW was a 1990 Volvo 740 SE; lots of things I rather liked about it, especially the seats; comfortable on long journeys as well.

My total comes to touching eur160k.  Worringly, the buying price minus the selling price comes to a total of close to euro80k!  Fuel for the mileage that those cars covered, at todays prices, adss up to approx euro90k, insurance comes to maybe 20k and other running costs (assuming a repair, maintenance and road tax cost of 7.5c per mile - not unreasonable) of 36k.  Grand total - euro226k over the past 15 years or so.

Assumptions - avg fuel consumption of 32.5mpg, fuel cost of euro1.30 per litre.

Hopefully Mrs D won't have a look in here to see that figure!
