I miss my last two cars:

 

2011 BMW 335xi Coupe M-Sport Package (6SP Manual with the BMW factory ECU update) - I miss this one the most

2013 BMW X1 - Not so much

 

Traded the X1 for a 2013 VW Jetta TDI 6SP Premium Package

 

Besides the 335... this is my favorite car... ever.

Just got a BMW F30 (2013 3 Series).

I wanted a 5 series/F10 but wife complaining about mileage and age for the same price. Hell its not like were talking 100,000 miles here, only like 45K miles on the 5er vs 10K on the 3 series. Then again the 3 is newer vs 2011 on the 5. Still the 5 was loaded with pretty much all the options available. :cry:

In any case, happy wife, happy life so 3 series it is .... I will buy a 535 maybe next year so there's thar... shhhh don't tell her! :devil:

Congrats. I just sold my F30 335i yesterday :cry: The 3 is much more fun to drive than the 5, because of the weight. Mine was also fairly loaded - loved all the technology features - especially the HUD!

2013 Chevy Malibu LTZ

2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R (636)

After putting the Yoshi R77 pipe and link pipe on my bike.  Major differences now is I have new levers and red 90 degree valve stems

My family's lease car at the moment is a 2014 (64-reg) Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

I like it; much better to drive than the 2012 Mercedes B180 CDI SE we had before, got that nice futuristic electric motor noise and extremely better fuel economy - lucky to get 40mpg out of the B-Class; I'm regularly hitting over 100mpg in this (don't know the exact figure, as it stops at 99.9mpg). The Mercedes had a better entertainment system, though (unlike MMCS, it could actually pick up the track information of what was playing from my phone).

Inherited an 02 Acura MDX, similar to this:

My first SUV - so weird to have a behemoth on the road. Underpowered (240 HP), but very smooth and ridiculously quiet.

My daily driver is a 2006 2.2 CDTI Ex just turned 60k miles and had a stage 1 ECU remap.

 

20140806_171308_zpsof5krnno.jpg

 

EX trim spec inc dual sunshine glass roof, Honda audio upgrade inc door tweeters.

Sadly doesn't have the Bluetooth/Sat nav option.

 

Everything stock apart from air intake upgrade and a stage 1 ECU remap to hit 200BHP on rolling road.

Best £200 I've spent on the car.

It now eats Civic Type-Rs and still hits 55MPG :p stock it was quick and nice torque, more torque and acceleration since the remap and slightly less turbo lag. If I stick at 65mph in 6th with cruise control on, 60MPG is the norm.

 

Toying with Type-R lowered suspension but id need a specialist to recode the stability control to compensate for lowered uprated suspension, rides hardish as it is so I'm hesitant tbh. I also want to replace the front grille, my model has the all glass with chrome type reflectors, the Type S grille fits, but has chrome trim, I want it with black/silver metal trim. Fitted bridgestones on each corner.

 

I Love it!

 

I also have a 97 Saab 900SE Cabrio (lux spec) tan leather 2.3i 16v in Dark green metallic.

Your car is more than your house ? (assuming that was taken in your driveway)

No, what makes you think that?


Oh the reflection is the house across the street from me.
