02 ford ranger is my daily driver/work vehicle, it’s now on its third engine and second gearbox:rolleyes: but it’s good enough for throwing tools in and dragging stuff round.

Then my weekend/family car that the Mrs usually nicks (cos she destroyed her fiesta!) is a X5 with the 4.6is v8 engine, just for its fuel economy:ROFLMAO:

How does the 4.6is differ from the 4.4?? They are both BMW V8s no?

I think those are the same mechanicals as Mrs Fred's Skoda Octavia 1.9tdi. My little Fabia estate is also 1.9tdi, but based on the Polo although it seems bigger.

Good motor, sh!t cars. I had about 6 inches of exhaust pipe, it made a beautiful turbo whistle and it would roll coal when taking off. It got a lot of confused looks.

Lexus 450D
Land Cruiser 70 series for work
Mustang GT Sunday car
GS1200 for fun and to blow the cobwebs away.

I like cars particularly V8s, I also like the thrill of a bike which is why I have a GS
Pictures? Remember I don't see a lot of the models regularly that you have over there

I'm lambing so this is my rig at the minute. Suzuki KingQuad 400 manual. Bought new in Jan 16.

Main vehicle for me is my SWB Iveco Daily van. 55 plate I bought 10 months ago.

I really like it. It's got a tow bar so can do everything I need. I did have a LWB one, but wrote it off in the bad weather.

Wife drives a Citreon DS3. Very nice sporty little hatchback.

We've got a PHEV Outlander on contract hire as a family car. A pure indulgence as I'd never had a new car before. It's going at Xmas and I won't be replacing it.

I drive a dodgy little Peugeot 307 shitbox that my sister gave me when she inherited my late uncle's Hyundai UAV - getting on for 200k miles but costing v. little yet

and a Ford Ranger that is for towing and longer distance stuff where the car isn't fit for purpose, last of the 3.0 4 pot diesels

Farm hack in a canam commander or the standard Honda CTX200 farm bike, or a mountain bike, or shanks's

Weekend bike CRF450R7 with low hours
