as well as a 205 that I haven't got any recent pictures of, got these two.

 

not sure the BMW classes as interesting, its a late 93 525 TDS Auto sat on Alpina 535i springs and dampers (Bilstein B8)

 

The ZX has its project thread.

I've had a few other cars over the years at the same time as the 205, but the only other car currently is a Mk1 Focus RS with lots of custom carbon fibre trim inside & out, a forged 400+bhp/torque engine with GT28 turbo, running standalone Autronic SM4 management.  It was one of the first cars in the UK to run that power & be converted to standalone back in 2007 by SCC Performance.
 
I just need to get the time & money together to get it back on the road, but seem to find myself diverting it into the 205 instead (not necessarily a bad thing that however ;)

Not very interesting at the moment for me - very grey! 208 GTi for her and an XC90 for me at the moment. I have to say, I really like the 208 - it's pretty quick for what it is, rides nicely and seems pretty well put together. Was also a bit of bargain as it was one of the last pre-facelift ones, so was heavily discounted. Volvo is a complete antithesis to everything I love about the 205. It does have the most comfortable seats of any car I've ever had, and an awesome B&W sound system though!

I do like a nice Mk1 Focus RS and am rather liking the C20 though!

The only picture I have in the iPad, my Defender 90SW XS.

A world away from the 205 in every aspect but I love it,.

Cool thread. Some nice 'other' cars here.

I'm a bit of a car nut. My 205 shares the garage with the following:

C30 T5-R. Great cruiser - my wife's car.

16CD6675-7768-41DE-BC54-B7B7E44CF80E.jpg

Lotus Elise Sport 111 - completely raw like the 205. No power steering, no power brakes, no ABS etc etc. Love it.

43495013-0839-481E-AE8E-FDD5685FF548.jpg

1966 Volvo 122S - was my grandpas car. Painted it a few years ago, but love putting around in it on the weekends.
