How long have you owned your G40
« on: February 03, 2019, 10:43:16 am »
9 years this February 10th. I will never sell it. No car puts a smile on my face as much doing 40mph or 140mph.

December 2006 for my current one. Got my first in 2002 and had a couple of different polos with G engines inbetween.

I dont use it a great deal these days and have other toys but it doesnt cost much to keep so I cant see the point in getting rid.

Nice to read some of the regulars I had no idea.!! 22 years has got to be some kind of record for any car init?

I got mine in 2007 from the my boss who sold me his 1380 mini on 1996 when he bought the polo. Came with VW FSH, 40,000 miles, £600 mates' rates. He'd bought a Clio 172.!
After the first silly crash the new GT body had no rattles, no mods, lovely, quiet, smooth at 120.
2 years later I had a seizure driving home in traffic and put it off the A46 somehow.

I'll never drive again but I remember when I did every time I go out the front door. I get as much fun fixing it and spraying it as I always did, I think that's the point :-D

They are the best car I've been in especially for surprising dick-driven BMW's.!!

Sorry to hear you won't drive again  :(

I barely drive mine, I get as much enjoyment out of cleaning it and just looking at it as I do driving.  8)

6 years now, dont plan on selling it either.

Most my other cars last 6 months with me, but nothing is as hilarious as the supercharged bean can!

Currently own a BMW M2 and I think once the Polo is back complete I would choose it to drive every time. those who know... know.
