    AGP SS - Almost 4 years old - 2nd August 2008 !

    It's been pretty faultless 2 years with me - aside from the usual little things - and still got 1year warranty left (5 year warranty was a pleasant surprise when I bought it as I had no idea they'd done that). 

    Best car I've owned (along with my sadly missed Lupo GTi).

    I think I placed my reservation order/deposit about four years ago this month. Didn't see a car for a while though :whistle:

    My Cars 4 years old on 25th November this year.

    Not had any problems with it at all (touch wood) apart from having the ignition barrel changed but this didnt stop it driving or the performance.

    Overall the best car iv ever had and im really struggling to see what i would upgrade to as i love the exclusivity although the MPG are starting to hurt the pocket.

    Also mine has only got 16,000 miles on the clock, wonder if anyone can beat this for 44 months old!  :)

    Ha ha!  4 years on 30th, booked a pre-holiday check and a MOT... then broke a spring, then got a puncture.  All sorted b4 hols though (big THANKS to all the offers of springs).  New springs, new tyre, hols driving around France.

    Despite some little flaws, I still love it: tried to pass a 40mph Korean thing today on a twisty road with limited space and he/she/it accelerated up to about 55 by the time I was alongside.  Van came ‘round corned ahead... so stood on brakes, nipped back in behind Kia or whatever, no “sweat”.  If I tried a stunt like that in another car I’d be paste.

    Thanks Abarth!  I'm still trying to find its limits (but I hope I never do).

    Hi,

    Mine is 4 years old on 1st August, well probably about 2 weeks ago as it sat in the showroom for 2 weeks before I picked it up.

    Just given it a polish, service, MOT, new tax and insurance certificate for it's birthday, oh and a new front anti roll bar bush to stop the horrible clonky noise. Looks and drives like new again now.

    Off to mid Wales in it tomorrow so will be filthy again by Sunday for sure.

    Great car, will keep it until it turns to dust, hopefully not for a few years yet.

    Thanks

    Duncan.
