    It says: Boy racer chav that lives at home, wears a tracksuit & baseball cap all day and loves the sound of a hole in the exhaust and ends every sentence with "like" or "innit?"

    Reality: No pops and bangs (or any other mod), sensible (if quick) driving and a mortgage to pay. Would never wear a tracksuit or baseball cap and I enunciate my words clearly.

    Yup. Am similar. 02 plate 325ti Compact... I'm certainly not young or a chav.

    Same here, Grey Avensis estate, it's been an amazing car but it is the definition of dull.

    Ours wont be going anywhere though as it's worth nothing and has been utterly reliable and cheap to run while being huge inside, i couldn't have asked for a better car in most respects.

    About to be a Merc GLE 350de premium plus so probably exactly matches me as a boring middle aged director.

    My other car is a 1969 MG midget - so again so point one :)

    Nissan Leaf and VW Golf Diesel - No idea what that says about me tbh. Frugal?

    In a perfect world I'd have a 70's Mustang or a TVR.

    Mercedes E63S, so does that make me an exciting middle aged director? As its Hyacinth red metallic I don’t qualify as an Albanian gangster or a fast German taxi driver

    I drive an almost completely standard '97 Mk1 MX5 in British Racing Green. This should mean that I'm in my 70's and reliving my youth as I don't need a practical car anymore.

    I am in fact still in my 30's (just) and now have a baby so anything other than a 4 seat car is a complete non starter... which is why it hasn't moved for 2 months and doesn't even have an MOT at the moment :rolleyes: :o

    My company car is a Leon Estate which from an outsiders perspective is probably a good fit from a social/economic view of me as an individual.

    Boring family person that needs to carry a lot of stuff about but was too tight to pay for a premium marque / big car. So yes.

    Ford Cmax, so family man who has no interest in cars.

    In reality, family man who works from home and has given up on wasting money on cars.

    As long as it gets me to the gym and golf course I'm good, costs me nowt but fuel/wear and tear.

    Presumably as I don't live on a farm my Range Rover says I should have face tattoos and sell recreational pharmaceuticals.

    Not sure what the M5 says, I quite like that it is pretty much anonymous compared to say an M3.

    A 15 year old slightly scruffy Civic.

    Probably say I'm cheap and/or poor.

    I have considered replacing it, but it's old R Types I've been looking at, which I struggle to justify.
