Mercedes A class or a GT86/BRZ if I could afford it, lol.

If I had same budget but no Fords I would have probably looked at a DS3, Civic or Mazda 2/3 (depending on what they would have been like without Fords input).

I get the feeling I'm going to be a bit like my Grandad and be a stick in the mud for Fords though - just thinking about the option of a a RHD Mustang in the future... Mmmm.

Before this, I had the Kia Cee'd, and would have probably kept it, or switched to a newer diesel version if it wasnt for the opportunity to get the CMAX, and the much needed space / auto combination.

I have a 1992 Celica GT4 RC.

If I were to buy another car (and could afford it) I would get a Toyota GT86 TRD Aero.

Would have to swap the wheels out tho. Nobody wants Prius wheels!

Depends on many things. Similar budget, then a Skoda Octavia VRs.
Larger budget, then a BMW 5 series (possibly a 535d).

Bmw 530d estate will be my next car, although I am enjoying the focus so much I will run this through the winter

In my job, I am fortunate to get to drive quite a few different cars from the VW Group range. Most suprising in the range for me was the new SEAT Leon - arguably a better car than the Golf! My favourite is the latest A3 though... I'd have one in a heartbeat!


After all that, I always get back in my Focus and smile because while it has it's faults, it's my baby :wub:

I've have just swapped cars to a Volvo V40, still would have another Ford in the future though as I am a Ford fan at heart. The Volvo just has a more luxury feel to it and a big engine!

I used to drive a Subaru Imprezza Turbo that was proably the best car I have ever had, raw power and awesome road holding round the bends. 


When I win the lottery however it will have to be something with a prancing horse on it!

My last car was a Fiat Punto - loved it!! Crackin' little motor - wouldn't say no to another Fiat one day (except the 500 in any form!!)

Other than that, not really sure. I do love my Focus (and my other half's Fiesta lol).

My Dad wants a Galaxy (somehow Mum's instructions to look for a SMALL runabout has evaded him). He currently has a Hyundai Matrix.

Id like a blue 1999 Toyota Levin BZR AE-111 Black Top
With a set of 17" Volk TE-37's
Almost bought one instead of the focus back in 2010 but glad I didn't as the focus is more practical for my needshttp://www.flickr.co...03094/lightbox/
