The Learner Driver should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
What are you driving this year and what would be your dream road car?

So what are you currently driving? If you could swap it for any road car at no cost, what would you choose?

As a learner driver, you can probably imagine what I'm driving so I won't even go there. As for my dream car it has to be an Aston Martin DB9.

My mother has a VW Gol 1.6 (NF). Great car, very comfortable and silent.



My dream car would depend on what I would wish to do.

To have fun, a Miata or GT 86.

To carry my family to a long trip, any C-segment car with some 150hp, be it a Ford Focus, Peugeot 3008 or BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.

2014 Jetta 1.8 tsi is the current car.

dream car...such a hard question!!!

hard to get practicality out of my head so wouldn't go for anything too extravagant but that said, just the other day i saw a 2017 (maybe 18) Jaguar F Pace with a matte black finish in my parking lot and found myself thinking that this is the car i want to be driving around in this summer!

My daily drive is a 2012 Ford Falcon XR6, I really like it, but a new BMW M2 would be very nice...

I drive my dream car - a Caterham R400. Lottery win or not , it's still the car to drive for the simple joy of driving . It would be joined in my lottery funded dream garage by a Singer 911 , a Ferrari 275GTB4 (as much to look at as drive ) , an Elan Sprint. a Gordon Keeble GK1 and an Alfa Duetto . Oh - and a Macan for my daily drive .

Veyron, 918 , P1 etc - grotesquely complex , obscenely priced and so heavy.

The issue is the 'just one' - it has to be versatile.
Currently a Volvo V70; no expense replacement? Probably an Overfinch RangeRover.

Currently driving my first car, a '92 1.6 NA MX-5. Unfortunately it's rusting and rotting away. Sadly, I won't be able to keep it on the road.



Current dream car? I am realistic. Current dream car would be a 996. Just any, really. Lightly modified, just like Jethro Bovingdon's.

Daily drivers are a MINI and a Honda FRV (don't ask). Dream car is a Ford RS200 - I was 10 when group B was at it's height so you can imagine the impression the cars made

Real world , one size fits all car would be a Macan - I need some offroad ability
If I didn't - no brainer really - some iteration of 2wd 911 .

I'm looking around for an auto Vauxhall Corsa for my wife. The last Corsa we had was a fantastic car but I'm not so sure the current variants will be so reliable.

Current Car = Vauxhall Meriva, it is awful!
Dream Car = 49 Mercury with a big block and a roof chop

My first ever rally I went to was the 86 RAC. I caught the train to Yorkshire from London, and was picked up by my psychopathic friends in a 240 Volvo which took off at 100 mph towards the forest. We walked about 5 miles in the dark to a stage that was supposed to be closed to spectators. About a 1000 other people had not got the message either.
The Sky lit up about 2 miles away from the leaders spotlights and the exhaust backfires sounded like an artillery battle. Then the cars started coming past and it was spectacular. A Lancia went into the ditch right in front of me, flipped on it's roof, and the brakes set the grass on fire. I was expecting someone to call the fire brigade, but instead everyone ran out of the woods, set the car on it's wheels, and it took off with a roar.
It was just brilliant, and I am so lucky to have seen those beasts before they got banned.

Which variant and year did you have? Was it an auto as well?

What's wrong with the Meriva? Are you looking to get something to replace it?

It would be easier to list what is right with it! It is a company car with 125,000 on the clock. Maybe it has had a hard life and this one is a dud, but I suspect they are all nasty.
In no particular order, the power steering cuts in and out, the heater is useless, the rear doors won't lock, the radio does not work, the rear wipers don't work. All of which could just be bad maintenance.
You can't plug something into the lighter socket and put a coffee in the cup holder
It is completely gutless, I got burned at the lights by a diesel punto.
It handles like a dinghy, constantly trying to put me in the hedge or ditch at low speed, and above 70 it floats all over the place.
Added to the fact that it looks horrible, I am not in love with it at all, but it does beat walking.
For 25 years I have always bought cars with high mileage, and for example my last Golf was ready for another 100k.
No wonder her sister Zafira decided to burst into flames in self disgust.
I will probably get an S type Jag as my next motor, you can score a real deal on a nice one.

Oh dear that is quite a list of problems. I have the pulling left issue on a Clio amoungst other issues like the sunroof lets rain in.

Which old golf did you have? I'm hoping to get a cheap one, either the mk4 or 5.
