The Leeds crash was a bit fraught: the car I crashed into was being driven by a giant of a man who was quite cross that I'd totalled his new Audi. I think I was a hair's breadth from him killing me. Never mind.

Which is all well and good. the problem I have is that you seem to think that everyone else should be interested by it all. The very fact that you want to explain your interest in cars on this site makes you no different from your average religious nutter.Sorry, did you notice this was a thread about cars?

First car == Current Car == 1.0 Toyota Yaris T3. Bought it new when I got my first job out of uni. If I actually went out of the house these days it would be time to get something nicer, as it is I'm thinking of going car-less soon.
