There's plenty members, who've had plenty cars in the time they've been here. So feeling nostalgic I thought a wee trip down memory lane would be good to see.

So as the title suggests. Post pics of the cars you've owned in the time you've been on the forum.

I'll start it off and try and get mine in order as best I can remember, but i'll no doubt forget something.

When I joined up I Had a 2001 Audi A4 B6 that I didn't even take pics of cause it was just a mile muncher. I also owned a mk3 Golf GTI 8v that a very good mate had owned for 7 years before me.
Image
Image

I sold that and bought a standard Mk3 GTI 16v that went through a few interiors, grills, and sets of wheels
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Put the Mk3 back to standard and swapped it with a mate for a tatty MK2 GTI with Vr6 transplant.
Image
Image

Gave it a tidy up, then my mate started having issues with the Mk3 so I done the right think and swapped back :(
Image
Image
Image

Got bored of messing about with the same old mk3 so left it sitting down the drive and bought a B5 A4 1.8t sport to tidy up.
Image

B5 was in a sad state of neglect but ran well and i onlly bought it for something to play with and tidy up.
Image
Image

I then bought an B5 V6 Quattro for the interior and carpet
Image
Image
Image

And put them in the T sport
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then before I'd even lowered it, I got impulsive and done a deal with the B5 for a Mk2 Golf GTI 8v
Image

I ploughed fair chunk into this car and as with the black mk3 it went through a fair few interiors, sets of wheels, and other changes.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then sold it on and dug the mk3 back out
Image
Image
Image
Image

Black mk3 oil pick up pipe went and starved the 90k engine of oil, so that got put to the back of the drive again and I bought my Red GTI back from the guy i'd sold it too. Sadly not in the same condition.
Image

Threw suspension, wheels, and interior from the black one at it
Image
Image
Image
Image

Sold it and bought a Mk4 GT tdi as i was bored of Mk3s and doing a load of miles for work.
Image

Lobbed eibach springs on and bought a set of LMs which i got powdercoated
Image
Image
Image

Once again, swapped with a mate and got another Mk2 GTI 16v which was in need of some love.
Image
Image
Image
Image

And set about tidying it up along with the usual lowering, panel replacing and a bit of paint
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Decided I was done with Mk2s. sold it, instantly regretted it and bought another Mk2 Vr6 project.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Started to reverse the 90s mods.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I only owned it for a month or so before selling it on to buy this Audi A8 sport that i'd been after for a while.
Image
Image
Image
Image
bought 20s and got them powdercoated
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Sold it. Bought a Mk5 GTI that had been skelped with the wrong end of the styling stick.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I got the front and rear bumpers painted along with the side skirts, swapped out the single din headunit for a 510 bought brand new BBS Vz (pescarra but wider and lower offset) and got a center silencer onto the stainless exhaust.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


I still have the Mk5 but this is my latest car. Bmw E46 330ci Clubsport
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

There were a few motorbikes in that time too but there's no need to see them here.

That's me up to date from 2008-2016. Theres a good few interiors and sets of wheels that never made it onto here, But you no doubt get the idea, i'm not into show cars, slow cars or low cars, I just like buying something and gentleman sausage about with it doing mini restos and little touches here and there.

Get some pics of your cars up folks. It doesn't have to be as long or detailed as this. I'm just sitting at the pc listening to tunes anyway so these few hours trawling photobucket has flown past.

Some thread mate.

I think Big G may have owned the SVAG slag Audi B5 V6 you had. Never realised you were an owner of it too.

Thought i would chuck mine up here.

joined the site back in 2009 when i bought myself a mk3 golf vr6, was stock apart from a set of 40mm springs (no pics of it like this) so i stuck a set of jamex coilovers on it and a straight through decat exhaust

Image

Image

i then stuck a vento front end on but left it matt black

Image

then a set of 16" bbs rx 1

Image

Image

then decided i prefered the mk3 front end and sold the vento front end to dougievr6 (RIP big man)

Image

Image

sold the car to a mate and bought my first mk4, a stock GTI TDI

Image

Image

instantly got rid of the tractor like ride height

Image

Image

got an anniversary kit fitted and some paintwork done on her

Image

Image

Image

she then had a milltek turbo back decat exhaust fitted with tdi downward tips, a k&n panel filter and a stage 1 map done at star performance which took her up to 187bhp & 300lbsft of torque.

then i fitted a set of 17" audi 6 spokes off a TT

Image

Image

and then a set of 18" millie miglia twists

Image

Image

fitted an allard intercooler hardpipe kit

Image

and then done a swap with a lad from wales for this

Image

Image

fitted a 3" downpipe and decat and then fitted a polished charge pipe courtesy of gb1 on here

Image

fitted a set of black 18" RS4 7 spoke reps

Image

Image

lowered it on some weitec coilovers in the snow on boxing day i may add

Image

Image

and went a run up to loch lomond a fortnight later and got some nice shots

Image

Image

Image

Image

then the clutch went and i fitted a sachs organic clutch, jabbasport smf and a quaife atb diff then got this badboy fitted

Image

Image

Image

managed to find an original set of newly refurbed original ronal rims with brand new michilin pilot sport 2s and spent 20mins on each wheel with a white tyre paint marker

Image

Image

a rolling shot

Image

and the last one i took before swapping her :(

Image

for a bora pd130 highline as i needed a mile muncher

Image

Image

Image

it had a striaght through decat exhaust and remap......... but had this

Image

so i stuck on the 18" RS4 7 spokes i had previously on the leon and got a machine polish done

Image

Image

Image

fitted a genuine oettinger front grill

Image

and got a new tailpipe weled onto the exhaust so i could fit a replacement lower valance

Image

Image

and then sold it and ran about in a horrible green subaru impreza gx sport wagon for a month (no pics) and then had a subaru forester XT that was decent (no pics again) but it wasn't me, so i went back to my roots and got another mk4, this time a V5 170

Image

Image

never done much with that apart from remove the centre resonator and fit a green cotton panel filter and then keep it clean.

it did make just short of 190bhp on extremes rollers though which i was chuffed with

Image

then i sold that and ran about in a vectra ls for a few months while i got some money together and bought this

Image

Image

Image


a 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX 300.

stuck a big 3" straight through on it with a 4" exit

Image

fitted a fuel pump and a cosworth panel filter and then had it mapped to 280bhp / 315lbsft

another clean pic

Image

then fitted an sti pink strut brace

Image

owned that for just shy of 2 years then sold up and went back to my VW roots again and bought my current whip

Image

Scirocco GT 2.0 TSI

i have owned this for 1 year and all i have done to this is some LED light upgrade and fitted a set of sill protectors.
may remap it at some point in the future.

hope you guys enjoyed the post

Lol. I'm not quite as bad. And have a few pics which have 2 or more cars at same time.

I joined in 2006 when I bought my first Golf GTI:

Image

A few mods later...

Image
Image

While that was being done, I bought an A3 for the daily duties... 2.0 TDI

Image

The Golf was then ditched for something with more traction... A V6 4Motion.

Image

Which wasn't as fast as the old Golf, and drank like a fish, so swapped for something with more power... Audi S4 (4.2 V8)

Image

The A3 was then swapped for something newer. An A4 2.0 TDI Avant Auto

Image

Then another A4. This time a Black Edition B8.5 Quattro...

Image

Image

Didn't like it. Particularly the terrible fuel economy. So swapped it for my first BMW. A 335d Touring...

Image

I then took another mk4 in px for the S4. Only had it about 24 hours...

Image

In the meantime, I had a few different motors for various duties...

Including a mk2 GTI...

Image

A Polo CLD I ran on Veg Oil

Image

A 4.6 V8 Range Rover

Image

And a Passat 1.9 TDI (130)

Image

And then bought a BMW 330i Touring...

Image

Another P38 Ranger Rover, this time with a 4.0 V8...

Image

And then swapped the 335d for something a bit bigger. My current 530d

Image

Which still isn't big enough, with the growing family, and family duties, so bought a Seat Alhambra (2.0 TDI)...

Image

So that's only 15 cars in 10 years. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Good stuff lads, thanks for sharing. :bigthumbs:

Carl and Rico, you two should chip in with Baz and AL-z in hiring a call centre in India for a week to manage your timelines :haha: Get them done tho cause I guarantee you'll smile and some of the memories of what you got up to in those cars come back.

Mine would've been much longer too if it hadn't slowed down. In the last three and a half years I've only had three cars, still owning two of them.

I want a project now tho :laugh:

Audi coupe 20v, early 7a engine in pearleascent white
Image

Then it got a black friend

10v coupe quattro. Ng engine,bodywork in really good condition bar 1 ripple/dent, interior was black leather, black carpet and headlining iirc. And all dash bulbs worked.
Image

Image

Image

I had to sell that after 5 weeks due to a bathroom flood :(    I regreted having to sell it. A lot, then the house insurance paid for the flood and I had money to buy another car.......


Then there was 2 again

Image




RL=http://s9.photobucket.com/user/audi-hibby/media/My%20Car/Black%20CQ10v/DSC03959.jpg.html]Image[/URL]

Image

The fwd got stripped and bailed. The 20v quattro became an ongoing project.

Next up was a b4 80 avant tdi
Image

Then a 80 quattro 16v saloon. A model never introduced to the uk. We think this one came from Republic of Ireland then Northern Ireland then here.


Image

And then.....


This got added to the to do list
Image

And then


E30 318i auto
Image


Then someone gave me a shot of a dridt car so I got an E36 323 saloon
Drove this on the road for 2 weeks, welded the diff, then wrote it off after 4 laps drifting.

Image

Then I sold the e30 with this thrown in the deal.
E36 328 sport on the right. It had been robbed by some scrote hence me getting it in a deal, previous drift car on the left
Image

Then my banger driver mate spray painted it for me, the white is goushold white gloss £4:99 for litre from b&m bargains store thined down with v-power petrol then sprayed through a normal auto spray gun. Green is a colour match, made to order from b&q.
A glass cheque build.
Image


Then i got a 54k mile e36 328 that had had a front end smash/half repaired and alarm fob lost for much cheapness. Fixed it up and drifted it. Crashed it, fixed it, and its now sitting in my yard awaiting abuse

Image


Then I got a Mobility Scooter. Still have this
Image


I liked the mobility scooter so much I uograded to a half sized american chopper replica
Image

Wich got swapped for another toy that i still have
Image


I took this as a trade. Kept it for a while, done (naughty swear) all with it and sold it on, 2 months later I got a scrap mk1 with great engine i could have used as a donor :(

Image


An e30 I still have ready for a donor engine.
Image


Both of these still with me

Image


And this i still have this for the Edinburgh potholes.
Image



Probably missed a few

Been here a while.....

Back when I joined, I had this.....only a 1.8 5v but was fine for the time. 1998 A4 se with black cloth and Bose sounds

Image
Image
Image

Had many sets of wheels on this, A8 comps, RS4 reps, Nuvolaris, then the black A4 5 spokes, then this happened...
Image

Also had this...1998 A8 2.8 auto with black leather comfort seats
Image
Image
Image

Which was then sold for this...1998 A8 2.8 sport auto with leather recaro interior
Image
Image
Image

which was then taken to SVAG one year when it rained a bit...
Image
Image

And then was sold on due to a knackered box

In the background, had this as well...1986 80cl 1.6
Image
Image

and then cleaned up and had a few bits added/removed
Image
Image
Image
Image

Notice the A4 on the Nuvolaris at the time (which were very rare and hard to come by back then, now every tom, gentleman sausage and harry makes reps of them) which were sold to a guy on audi sport for a lot more than I paid :secret:

Stored it away for a bit, then brought it out like this....
Image
Image
Image

(notice the sugar Mondeo, company car..only had it for 6 months and had to go back for a faulty wheel bearing...)

Then it went away again...came out like this...
Image
Image
Image
Image

And got pics of it with the next money pit I bought by that time...1985 90cd 2.0
Image
Image
Image

which I also got a set of these for....
Image

Then found these....
Image
Image

Also bought this not long ago...1989 100 Avant 2.2 quattro
Image
Image
Image

Which then blew a coolant hose on the way home and had a rotten fuel tank >_<
Image

So....then I bought this to cheer myself up a bit....1989 100 Avant 2.0E auto
Image
Image

and just trying to find the time to get at least 1 or 2 on the road for summer....also a sugar of company cars and fancy crap for the weekends

Anyway, here's a badly made pic of a chick with hooters in a mk2 Golf..If you made it to here then you deserve it
Image

Enjoy

Here is the list of cars I've had doesn't come close to the number of cars some of you had. Only one missing is a 1.1 fiat chinqento not sure on the spelling.

First car
Image
Next was this polo gt which was such a fun car and one of the few I miss.

Image

Next up came this cupra remapped to 215bhp
Image

This is the next car I miss but having kids meant it had to go.

Image

Then came the family car which is a brilliant all rounder 330d
m sport

Image

So that's it to date

This was somewhere in there too.
Image

Not all vag I know.

What a great thread.

I joined svag when browsing the classifieds for my mk2 in 2011. I promised my now wife that we'd get married and pay for the wedding before I starting sinking money into an 80s hot hatch

Clio RS 200 with cup chassis. Superb back road commuter, the car handled so well and had superb brakes, I loved it, although it was French and so was built like a French car

I bought Dino from Owen on here, to date my favourite car, and still going strong. Originally an 8v GTI, now 20vt

370z - amazing car, the 'synchro Rev' gearbox was a brilliant feature, effectively an automatic heal and toe feature for the manual gearbox. Only problem was the car was massively let down by the quiet exhaust and at the time I didn't want to spend £1.5k on a decent exhaust

B7 A4 1.8t Quattro dog mobile, absolutely loved it and a very capable all season

My current whip, 2007 S3 mapped. Super car and I may hold on to it for a while.... we shall see!

Cheers for looking

Pete

I'll do mine when I have more time - and I doubt it'll be in order of time either. My memory is decent but not that good lol haha.
