    Lovely.

    When I no longer need the practicality of my V70 then an XF will definitely be on the shortlist, even as they age I still think they look so good. What is the boot like on yours?

    Not bad. Itís pretty long front to back, the opening is ok but not great. Depends what youííre using it for really! Just did a week away in Scotland with my wife and two kids, both teenagers and they had a suitcase each. It managed all that in great comfort and we never struggled for space or pace!

    You can pack that in!

    Beautiful scenery and car. Nice work.

    My summer daily is my 2006 MX5. SORN'd ATM as the rfl per year is twice the insurance. Robbing bar stewards.

    Hahah! Thanks, I have to agree with that! Barbour & Cygnet, TZ uniform, love it!

    Our IQ is pretty standard manual 1.0 litre, but it goes incredibly well and is the proverbial Tardis inside!

    Cygnet version would be great fun to have but at the cost of one, I could alternatively have a spare iQ on the drive!

    Only to be expected, I suppose, for one or more of these to crop up, but 'er indoors has been using this one as a daily drive and is more than happy with it. A recent request for a minor bodywork repair elicited a response, from the workshop owner ,along the lines of " we bloody hate Mazdas, they never go wrong " That is OK with me . 2010 registered, 55,000 ish miles.

    BMW 330d MSport Touring, 17 years old. It's been in my possession for about 10 years and I still love it. The engine is a peach, so much torque and the car drives so nicely. I'm biased, but I also think it still looks great, 3 series are pretty timeless in the right spec.

    I'll keep it for as long as it continues to serve me well.

    2008 Focus Estate

    Ford Focus Estate Auto from 2008, nearly 130,00 on the clock. Runs superb, the 1.6 zetec is a well built, well engineered engine and economy is over 40 mpg. Insurance is under £300 as no one is going to nick it ! with Churchill Insurance. Drop the rear seats and you can fill it full of stuff from B and Q, or take a shedload of recyclables to the local recycling centre. I've kipped in it on several occasions and apart from a bit of condensation on the windows it's fine, just don't sit up quickly in the middle of the night

    I've changed the brake pads a few times in the time I've had it and changed the usual oil, water, filters and a couple of rear bulbs, the inbuilt gramaphone sounds quite good also.
