    Ownership Verified: Teslas everywhere ... But never a red one!

    So after buying a VW Bora that then got flooded ... I bought another VW Bora (Sorry, no thread for either) which in a year I have invested around €7000 in repairs and maintenance it is still shit and has issues... I got to a point where that money is enough to pay a years worth of loan on...

    Ownership Verified: The horse has bolted. Meet the Pferdchen!

    So, the story goes that I am driving too many KMs in my 140i ... And every time I drive I am concerned about how much extra it is going to cost me, so I set a limit on the kms (52,000) meaning I have about 2500kms left to enjoy the 140. So, I started looking for a reasonably priced daily driver...

    Hey, look! Somebody on the forums actually a car with one of the worst soft top roofs in the world! Meet Monsieur Sumsemann! I actually had a go of taking the roof completely off, but in the end I ran out of motivation: So far so good! It has done 150,000kms, it's a 1.6 with...

    Ownership Verified: Something something bluemotion something BMW. It's not a 116i.

    So, I guess I can post it here now that I have it. My new Daily, BMW M140i! It's a lease which is a somewhat stupid financial descision, I know. But what ever, I end up with a 340ps 500nm car to play with for 3 years :) I added a shitload of options to see what kind of a deal I could get...

    Ownership Verified: Loose loses logic and accidentally a 1999 Honda VFR 800 FI

    So, I had decided to buy one towards the end of winter - Since I owned my VFR 400 RR in New Zealand (PIC PIC PIC) I had been lusting after VFR 750's and VFR 800's. Now I have settled down a bit in Germany, paid off a bunch of things and have a new job that pays a bit of extra money and...

    Ownership Verified: Turnin' German. I didn't realise it was this easy.

    So as some of you are aware, my MX-5 is a bit broken for a number of reasons. Mostly it relates to the fact that I had to drive the car every day for work when it was never meant for that. This meant that I suddenly needed a new car, all the banks refusing to give me and my GF money! Luckily...

    Mini Roadtrip to Ringmeet 2015 [Short German Roadtrip]

    I came up with the idea of doing a shorter roadtrip for those of us that can't justify the time or the expense of doing the gigantic 1 - 2 week trips. The dates for this will be determined once Ringmeet 2015 dates have been confirmed. No campsites have been confirmed, they are all there as...

    Ownership Verified: Another E30, Beni's Winter Beater/My Loaner.

    So, I will let Beni fill in the history of this car if he would like, but it has been his winter-beater for some years. He decided to get himself a new winter-beater and kindly offered to lend me the car until the MOT expires at the end of January! The bonet was open and it is on the ramps at...
