2017 Ford Focus RS. Bought it because I had a 2 door 2008 Fiesta ST and girlfriend (now wife) said I should think long term and get a 4 door family car with a bigger boot and that could take a baby seat. I felt I met all those requirements by buying the RS. Been smiling ever since. WhatsApp Image 2018-08-31 at 09.24.36.jpeg

BMW M2.

Why? It was the perfect blend of performance and looks at the price point. It is also relatively rare on the road, so the being in "something a bit different" aspect of it was also appealing.

Proper jealous.. pic?

Now you will have a valid excuse when the kid throws up in the back seat during trips to the shop.

2007 Lexus IS 250 SE with about 187000 km.

Was planning to upgrade this year, but now will have to see what corona does to the economy

Keep it. Solid reliable vehicle. Maintain the services. Saw 1 in CT with over 500k on the motor with 3 service books still a solid drive.
