    I’ve had access to literally 100’s of cars over many years when I worked in the motor trade and a Mk2 Golf GTI was one of the very few cars that I really bonded with. I literally stole it for about 6 months until someone remembered that it existed.:laugh:

    I almost bought a Mk2 GTI a couple of years ago, sometimes I wish I had as it was a nice one but at the time it was going to be a daily and I didn't want to ruin a genuine rust free car by doing 10k+ miles per year in it, they're great cars though :thumbs_up:

    I've got a Skyhawk with that movement in. Not planning to wear it until spring when the time will be right again as I can't be bothered googling how to put it back the hour!!

    Choose time mode, pull out the bottom RH button, use the top RH button to select the hour and adjust the hour with the bottom LH button :tongue: I have to google the manual every time the battery dies, takes 1/4 hour just to set the time and calendar :rolleyes:

  3. I like this, it's a new one in my collection. No texture and it's a 24 hour dial so it takes a bit of getting used to, but its clear and easy to read, and way below £500. The bracelet is pants though, if I keep it and get on with it I may purchase a better quality solid link bracelet for it.



    EDIT: Seiko Samurai can be bought with a white waffle dial which looks great IMO, around the £500 mark

  4. Been driving since 2015..

    1994 Mini Cooper 1275 - still own it, currently having nut and bolt rebuild (accidentally bought a supercharger to bolt onto the original engine :thumbs_up:)

    2002 MK4 Golf 1.6 - cheapest motoring I've had, great cars

    2007 Saab 9-5 Aero Saloon - Absolutely the best value for money in regards to luxury and power, fantastic car

    2001 Saab 9-5 Aero Estate - Bought as a project, got it roadworthy spent too much money and sold it on for a loss :laugh:

    2005 Mk5 Golf 2.0 Petrol - Bit better on fuel than the Saab was, and needed to save a bit of money due to recently getting a mortgage


    Hopefully I'll get something a bit nicer in a couple of years time once the moneypit Mini is on the road
