    Too poor to buy a proper M car.
    Mid-life crisis.
    Doesn't care what a car looks like on the outside / is blind.

    My 7 year old diesel Civic estate suggests I’m an OAP, but my S2000 suggests I’m an boy racer. It’s very confusing.

    ETA: It’s funny that the ****** in lowered, 4D plated German hatches that think driving quickly in a straight line makes them clever, are cutting me up in the Civic but want to race the S2000 :rolleyes:

    I’m probably shagging or planning to shag your wife, girlfriend….or mum (or dad if you bought the green one).

    At this moment my wife and I are in Lincoln Nebraska at the SCCA Solo Nationals autocross campionsip, 1500 miles from our home in Florida. We drove here in our 2016 Scion FRS that we competed in. It is covered in about 100hp worth of contingency (sponsorship) stickers and just screams "I'm a teenager that wants to race you, your children and your pet!"

    In reality I'm 49, she's 58, and pedal-mashing in a straight line between stoplights would be about as exciting to us as a quilting contest. And while the car sits about an inch lower from the spec-suspension we all run for the class, it looks most agressive when it's packed full of our extra set of wheels and luggage...and probably couldn't outrun a minivan if we wanted to.

    In my wife's car (Honda CR-V) I look like someone who has given up on life.
    In my car (BMW 650i cab) I look like someone who visits a petrol station a lot more often than you do.

    59 plate Alfa Mito in red. It's done 113k miles, I've done 80k of them. It has been my first and only car (so far). At this point it's worth so little I'm tempted to just run it until it goes pop. I get 44mpg on a motorway run.

    What does it say about me? Don't really know to be honest. I'll let others decide.

    It's amazing how much mine (2016 Roadsport, ex academy car so in race trim with roll cage etc) gets when I fill up at a petrol station. Not all the fellow owners I meet have beards - I do however)

    I dread to think what my old, scruffy, diesel & covered in dog hair Volvo estate says about me. - At least I don't have a beard... :o
