Any car you regret letting go?

So, what has been your favourite or most memorable car that you have owned? Any you regret selling?

I almost cried getting rid of my Alfa 159 TI Sportwagon, it was my dream car, looked great and mapped was 200 BHP. Whilst the 500X is missing some of the toys (auto wipers,lights and heated seats ) it's a lot more suitable for my needs in the narrow lanes of Somerset.

Hopefully I'm not going to regret the 500x but we shall see!

My ABARTH Punto Evo. 200BHP / 300NM and completely black as night.

After 5,5 years of great fun I had to trade it for my current 500X Lounge.
The 500X is a great car and his has not dissapointed me thus far.
But owning an ABARTH is just, well, very petrolhead like.

Is this why you are planning all the mods you are doing!

I've moved from my Giulietta to the 500x.
Always wanted a red Alfa.
Waited years for the reliability to make it a sensible option; couldn't face it letting me down!
Still, in the 500x, half the dashboard and the Multiair engine are lifted straight from the Giulietta, so I'm feeling ok about it so far.

Was the reliability alright with yours in the end then?

yeah, didn't miss a beat in the 3 years I had it.
Only changed as was about to be 3 years old and didn't want car out of warranty
500x deal was so much better than what Alfa dealer offered
Really sad to see it go, but simple economics swayed me for once!
