    Do you find yourself getting attached to your car? Or do you just not care.

    I've been thinking about getting rid of mine lately but every time it comes to actually going to a dealership to look at a new one I can't bring myself to do it. Not a particularly good car, 13 year old Polo with 60,000 on the clock but it's been really reliable since I sorted one initial issue out and I really like it. If it had a value of more than about 500 quid I might be more willing to get rid :lol:

    You have sex with your car don't you. I've seen TV shows about people like you.

    You disgust me.

    Yes mate. Reet in the hot exhaust pipe.

    It's not like that though, I'd just feel dead guilty and sorry for it if I ever got rid.

    Laughed when I got rid of my golf. The Audi dealership agreed a price for it without seeing it. The massive shitbox.

    Got a 2007 mini cooper s on 162,000 miles that breaks down if you look crossways at it. Should have binned it years ago but can't bring myself to do it. I run 2 cars as I needed something reliable that wouldn't chuck it on the way to work :oops:

    Probably won't given I live in Newcastle like.

    I'll probably opt for a relatively new one this time as well.

    If it's part of a national network you could be buying it from anywhere across the country.

    I could and have in the past changed my car a couple of times a year .No matter what I get I always get the urge to change it after 6-8 months.

    just scrapped a 16yrs old 1.6 Fiesta i'd had 13yrs. toyed with the idea of putting it through another MOT, but it was time to go.

    replaced with a Mazda2 1.5 Sport.

    18 year old Alfa 166 with 270k on the clock had it since new can be quirky as f&ck but drives like a dream I'll be devastated when the time comes
