How many cars since 2008

Last night my mates wife was having a go at him for changing his car so often. We then decided to count how many and decided that the last 4 years would be a good time span as on average that's how long "normals" keep cars.

Me = 8 (counting all cars in our household as I pay for them)
Friend = 18

I thought this might be a good question for here. I bet palmnuts wins*


*no prizes will be given to the highest or lowest figure

I've had 3 different motors over the last 4 years..

- 1.0 Polo
- 1.6 Clio
- E92 335d

I won't be changing for another 2 or 3 years as I'm more than happy with my diesel.

Oh, must we play this game again . There's another thread similar to this from a 1 or 2 ago...

When are you counting from - November 2008 or January 2008 - could have a serious effect on figures

I remember that thread Roger. It was just a general car history thread Started by Peter I think. This is more a how many in a given time span thread so that I can show it to my wife to prove I'm not as bad as you lot.

I think we should count from start of the year 2008.

Since 2008. And well... That's my entire car history! I bought the peugeot in 2006. So...

I tend to mod the car when I'm bored, rather than change the car. Less stressful! Less a$$holes to deal with too .. .

Ahaha...

I still feel that I've done OK. Each car better than the last. Hard trend to continue with though now without spending serious money..

Jaaaaaaaag tempting for the next one, but not the right side of 30. I couldn't live it down .

Because I'm old. If I start to think about modding. I realise I'm probably not that happy with it and it's time to move on. I also hate having to revert a car back to standard before trading it in.
