How old is your daily driver?
« on: June 15, 2020, 09:28:23 pm »
Haven't been here since I sold the S2 (sadly) a few years back...
Had a few vehicles since, but settled on a couple of daily drivers for the family that are 25 and 28 years old. I just like 80s/90s Euros, and have never had significant problems (apart from the S2 that got tired through neglect while I had other priorities for a bit).

...so, who here is running a VAG (or other) daily that's 20+ years old?

Well, one day the 85 urquattro will be my daily.
But until then my partner's 2012 Swift is doing the business :)

It doesnít really qualify as a daily or vag, but finally got out in the 1993 m3 and had a absolute fun time at Taupo alongside many many gt3ís. I think I even had more fun than them (driving like I stole it).

Good to see there's a few old beasts still getting a daily run. I do miss having running the S2 at Taupo and passing modern GTs of several times the value :)
