Just to balance it up -

Jaguar - Most models still have that unique feel and now very well engineered. X-Type is much better than people reckon. I predict the XK to be pretty amazing.

Alfa - Okay, still quality issues but Ive seen many cars pass 100k without skipping a beat. Terrible aftersales and residuals remain a problem. Stunning cars that hit the button, I really hope they survive.

Ford - Dont laugh, they have a very strong range these days that are much better than their image.

Honda - Shame about their old man image coz engineering doesnt get much better.

Aston - Droooooooool, not much more to say. I want.

Ferrari - Always stunned by just how capable these things are these days, flash git image is prob though.

Of course there are individual models in other ranges.

Ferrari – Simply stunning cars, although I think they have lost their way with their current styling, definitely not the most beautiful cars they have ever produced.

Jaguar – Some really nice looking cars, which I think, have a certain presence about them, more so than BMW’s and Mercedes.

Alfa Romeo- by far the best looking range of cars within their market sector with some superb engines.

Aston Martin – Back where they belong, again some beautiful cars that sound out of this world.

Lamborghini – Steeling a bit of thunder from Ferrari at the moment, with a great range although maybe a bit too similar in looks IMHO.

Range Rover – Pure Class IMHO, their market sector has been flooded with loads of “wanna-bees†in recent time but they are still head and shoulder above the rest, especially with the recent change in styling.

I have two angles, firstly i like cars that dont break... the Honda's of this world.. but i love driving Italian cars as long as i can leave them where they break down and drive something else home...

I like cars with soul...

I liked the mark 1 Escorts. I also liked Vauxhall Chevettes. That was the last Vauxhall I liked.

It's a shame really to see how the British auto industry has gone down in such a short period of time! Rover being the most recent example of failure.

German manufacturers managed to stay ahead of the new competitors, mostly from South-East Asia(Japan, then Korea).

I am not sure that French or Italian manufacturers were much better though. It's just that their homeland markets were more captive.

My 8yo Primera just sailed through its MOT at 128,000 miles with front pads and 2 new tyres.

Jaguar: not a single duff car between WWII and the "new" S-Type.

Citroen: never afraid to pioneer new technology. Traction Avant, 2CV, DS, CX, GS, AX all outstanding.

Alfa Romeo: who cares if they (used to) break down. Just LOOK at them.

Ford: a few duffers in the range, but Focus and Mondeo both class leaders and superb to drive.

Aston Martin, Bristol, Bentley (not that shite Continental GT): well, a Gentleman has to drive something, old boy.

Porsche: except the Cayenne, obviously.

Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, ISO, De Tomaso: see Alfa Romeo.

Honda: ace engineering, too good for granny! (Styling and interiors a bit suspect

)

TVR: safety? You calling me a poof?
