If you have any pics of it then that would be even better!

Hmm don't know about best, obviously I'd have to say the Fiesta ;) However the worst would be a toss up between a Seat Arosa and a Mini One...Rubbish!

If I had to toss it up, I would say that I am struggling between the Focus and the Cee'd, I am leaning to the Focus, might have been a pain in my !Removed!, but it was a very good car when things werent going wrong.

If only I had bought its sibling that didnt have everything wrong, I could say I wouldnt have moved away from the oval...

So my answer is the 1.6TDCI Focus MK2 2005. had it had no faults, and the DPF didnt cost a fortune to replace...

However as far as the Cee'd is concerned, I sometimes forget that I am not in the focus... Until I look in the boot and realise the loss of space :(

Dont really know where to start. There were a few really good cars to drive, not necessarily reliable though.

In the 80's it was a Nissan Sylvia 1.8 Turbo. Great to drive and was probably one of the most reliable cars I had. Less reliable but still fun to drive was my modded Mk3 XR3i.

In the 90's it was, and dont laugh, a Rover 800 Vitesse Sport Lux. Fully loaded, ivory leather etc and a very lively 2 litre turbo engine. Fantastic for gluiding up the motorway. Probably the most comfortable and fastest car Ive owned, however very costly to get repaired. (1700 for a headgasket).

Since the millenium it has to be the Alfa 2.0 TC Veloce Sportwagon. This one was unusually reliable for an Alfa. Fabulous to drive, especially when you hit 3000 revs. Lastly the last two Focus's, purely for their reliability, as I have not even had a bulb to change.

Best would be my dads E92 M3 Dakar Yellow Edition, but couldn't drive it propper due to being in a small car park and no driving licence. But had a few chance's to open her up :D

No due to having no licence yet like i said, but my girlfriend and me took it in turns going up the strip with my dad driving it. Only place i have driven both of the BMW's is a car park near where i live, but its got a nice straight in the car park. So had a good chance to open her up then :D

But for people intrested in the time we got, 13.1secs @ 107.4mph going up the strip was are best time :)

Yes it's a lovely car.
Santa pod is always the best show for the year i think for the BMW side. Let me know if you do plan to go up i may also go on the same day, would take my fiesta but don't drive yet so i will be going in the BMW again but still a good day :D

Hopefully the time should be much better if he still gets the ESS Supercharger fitted at the start of next year. But then he is in two minds of selling.
