Hello! On broettonavarro's profile ( I've found his entry about the cars he drove... and it looks like a good idea to me :) He allowed me to use his entry to make my own (thank you!), so... here it is :)

Last update(s):
- added link to Mitsubishi L200,
- added link to Ford Mustang,
- added Citroen C4 Grand Picasso (to "driven for less than 50 km" category),
- added Lexus LC 500h (to "driven for less than 50 km" category),
- added Lexus LC 500 (to "driven for less than 50 km" category).

Driven for more than 500 km:

- 2002 Toyota Yaris 1.0 Terra (5-door) - my mother's previous car. Less than 40.000 km mileage!
- 2003 Ford Mondeo 1.8 Trend X100 (4-door) - previously my father's car, currently mine :)
- 2011 Ford Mondeo 2.0 Trend GoldX (4-door) - my father's current car
- 2013 Hyundai i20 1.2 Classic Plus (5-door) - My mom's new car :)
- 1992 Peugeot 205 1.1 XL (3-door) - my second car (apart from 2003 Mondeo). Still not in great condition... but provides quite a lot driving fun ;)

Driven for 50 km - 500 km:

- 2002 Toyota Yaris 1.3 Luna (3-door) - replacement vehicle from Toyota service (my mom's Yaris had a small accident and needed new rear bumper and left-rear fender)
- 2003 Toyota Yaris 1.0 Terra (5-door) - I was driving with this one when I was in driving school. It's after face-lifting, so the engine has only 65 PS (our 2002 Yaris has 68 PS)
- 200x Chevrolet Aveo 1.4 16V (5-door) - in driving school
- 200x Ford Fiesta 1.25 16V (5-door) - in driving school. I liked this car a lot! Really nice car, the only problem is, that it didn't have sensible place for left foot. This one was after the face-lifting.
- 199x Peugeot 205 1.4 "Winner" (3-door) - my friend's car. The "Winner" special version was only offered with 1.1 or 1.4 engines in white or red (this particular one is red) and had special 5-spoke alloys. My friend's car has also some other changes, for example rear brakes from 1.6 GTI :) Really nice car.
- 2014 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport - first I was driving it during car dealer's test drive. Now... well, I'm using it when I'm told to do something in the city (or even in other city) ;) Model after the face-lift. With F-Sport package looks quite good (apart from this stupid rear window...). I have to say, that after driving it over 200 kilometres, I like it even more than before. Especially the seats. But I still think that it could be more comfortable (it has 17" wheels).
- 2014 Lexus NX 300h F-Sport - as above - my first drive in it was just a test-drive (although I was already working at Lexus dealership). But I was also driving it sometimes when there aren't other cars available. Apart from the new RC/RC F, this is the newest Lexus. The 300h version is of course a hybrid vehicle, with 2,5-litre inline-4 petrol engine. Good interior quality, very good handling. Perhaps not the most dynamic ~200 BHP car, but still pretty good (NX 200t with 2-litre turbocharged engine will be much better). Great design IMO!
- 2015 Lexus GS 450h Prestige - test car in my work. Extremely comfortable and quiet, but this is exactly what you can call a "sleeper". Why? Because it has... 345 PS and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 6 seconds.
- 200x Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 8V (77 PS, 3-door) - this car belonged to my fiances brother. The interior isn't the best in terms of quality, but it's pretty spacious. Very decent handling and performance, despite low engine power.
- 2016 Hyundai Elantra 1.6 CRDi Style (4-door) - borrowed from car dealer/test drive. Pretty good to drive (nice engine and gearbox, pretty good suspension and steering), but there were some ill-conceived schemes.

Driven for less than 50 km:

- 200x Chevrolet Aveo 1.2 (5-door) - there were two such cars in my "driving adventure", both on driving exams... They were newer than Aveo 1.4 16V from my driving school and were after the face-lifting, but this 1.2 engine was just horrible...
- 200x Chrysler Neon 2.0 SOHC 16V (4-door) - really nice engine sound here! And this particular Neon has some Dodge SRT-4 suspension parts in it.
- 2008 Kia Cee'd 1.4 16V (5-door) - it's car before the FL, so the engine has 109 PS; after the FL the output was decreased to 90 PS
- 1997 Fiat Punto 1.1 SX (5-door)
- 2002 Fiat Punto 1.2 8V SX (3-door)
- 200x Fiat Punto 1.9D (5-door) - car from my driving school, although I've driven it not on my lessons, but few years later. REALLY tired car, but... it was fun :D
- 1992 Ford Escort Mk6 1.4 8V (5-door)
- 1996 Ford Escort Mk7 1.8 TD 70 PS (combi)
- 199x Honda Civic VI 1.4i (90 PS) (5-door) - this car belongs to my friend's father. Pretty nice, I liked the interior very much!
- 1998 Renault Laguna 1.8 16V RXE (5-door) - first generation, but after FL. It belongs to my friend. It had cheap "chinese" HID headlights, but now they are replaced with new halogen lights :)
- 199x Opel Astra Classic 1.4 8V (4-door) - almost no equipment at all and only 60 PS, but overall - not bad :)
- 1996 Opel Vectra 2.0 16V CDX (4-door) - it was a bit "tired", but the equipment was almost complete - the only things it didn't have (of course, from original optional equipment list) was the sunroof and automatic gearbox...
- 1998 Daewoo Tico SX (5-door) - this particular Tico was... well, rubbish :D
- 199x Fiat Barchetta (convertible) - it's owned by driving school where I was learning! :D
- 2000 Alfa Romeo 156 1.8 T.S. (4-door)
- 2003 Fiat Albea 1.2 16V HL (4-door) - it also has less than 40.000 km mileage!
- 200x Mercedes-Benz C200 Kompressor Classic (W203) (4-door) - although it was the "Classic" version, it was equipped with almost all options&extras, including xenon headlights. Probably the only things it didn't have, was the leather upholstery and automatic gearbox. The manual gearbox was 6-speed.
- 2004 Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (4-door)
- 2012 Peugeot 208 1.2 VTi Active (5-door) - car dealer's test-drive
- 201x Ford Fiesta 1.4 Trend/Trend SVP (5-door) - as above. This one was pre-FL
- 2012 Ford B-Max 1.4 Titanium/Titanium X (5-door) - as above
- 2012 Toyota GT 86 (2-door) - as above. FANTASTIC car! I love the gearbox... and the engine sound...
- 2012 Toyota Yaris 1.33 Sol/Premium (5-door) - as above
- 2012 Hyundai i20 1.2 Classic Plus (5-door) - as above. I really liked it, it was MUCH better than I expected!
- 2012 Abarth Punto Evo (3-door) - as above. Quite good car, but I have to say, that the engine is rubbish. Well, maybe "rubbish" isn't a good word here, but it drives like a Diesel, almost complete lack of power above 5000 RPMs...
- 2012 Skoda Citigo 1.0 (60 PS) Elegance (3-door) - as above. Quite nice to drive, but the suspension could be better on harsh roads.
- 2012 Audi A1 1.4 TFSI (122 PS) Ambition (3-door) - as above. Comfortable AND fun to drive, but some optional equipment is way to expensive.
- 2012 Renault Clio 1.2 16V Authentique (5-door) - test drive, but I borrowed this car from my neighbours :)
- 2013 Renault Clio Grandtour 0.9 TCe Expression Alize (combi) - car dealer's test-drive. Very easy to drive (maybe a bit too easy ;)), but I liked the engine there.
- 2013 Skoda Octavia 1.4 TSI (140 PS) Elegance (5-door) - as above. Very spacious. It was also well-made and surprisingly fast.
- 2013 Renault Captur 0.9 TCe Intens (5-door) - as above. Quite good and has some nice equipment, but it drives not so well as Clio 0.9 TCe.
- 2013 Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost (125 PS) Trend (5-door) - as above. Apart from the engine sound, it drives almost like a "normal", naturally aspirated car.
- 2013 Citroen C3 1.2 VTi Selection (5-door) - as above. I liked this one, but I have to say, that it isn't very spacious and the suspension is not as good as the one from Peugeot 208.
- 2013 Opel ADAM 1.4 (100 PS) (3-door) - as above. FANTASTIC fun-car! I'm not a big fan of its design, but driving it in the corners... I want it, and I want it NOW.
- 2013 Kia Carens 1.6 GDi (5-door MPV) - as above. In general, really nice family car, but I didn't like the engine because its lack of power just under 3000 RPMs.
- 2013 Chevrolet Aveo 1.2 (86 PS) LT+ (5-door) - as above. Nice car to drive and really good equipped, but in my opinion they should replace the 86 PS 1.2-litre engine (A12XER) with the 87 PS 1.4-litre (A14XEL) which can be found for example in Opel ADAM. A12XER just hates going up the hills (but also likes high revs). I can only imagine, that 70 PS version of it, the A12XEL, is kind of a horror.
- 2013 Fiat 500L 1.4 Pop Star (5-door) - as above. Really spacious, and surprisingly fun to drive. But this particular car had one problem - the 6th gear wouldn't work...
- 2013 BMW 328i (F30) xDrive (4-door) - as above. REALLY fast and great to drive!
- 2013 Skoda Superb Combi 2.0 TDI DSG (combi) - as above. It's hard to believe, how HUGE this car is in the interior, especially in the rear. The engine was really quiet and DSG worked perfectly.
- 2013 Volvo S60 T3 Momentum (4-door) - as above. T3 is the least powerful petrol engine available in S60 (it's a 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine from Ford, it has 150 PS), but I can only say, that it was really nice to drive. The engine sound was great, interior quality was really good aaaand suspension was just extremely quiet!
- 2013 Lexus IS 300h Comfort (4-door) - as above. That was for me the first ever hybrid car to drive... funny, it goes (and sometimes even sounds) like a tram :D Unfortunately, the interior quality is not as good expected; not only BMW is better in this category, but also Volvo.
- 2012 Kia Optima 1.7 CRDi XL (4-door) - as above. Very nice car to drive, especially the engine is good (dynamic and with nice sound). Some of the materials used in the interior could have been better, though.
- 2013 Dacia Duster 1.5 dCi 4x4 Aventure (limited edition; 5-door) - as above. Really nice looking version of Duster, I liked it quite a lot. Unfortunately, in this version All-Wheel Drive is available only with this 1.5-litre Diesel engine; 1.6-litre petrol engine is available only as 4x2.
- 2013 Ford Kuga 1.6 EcoBoost (150 PS) Titanium (5-door SUV) - as above. Fantastic looking car and really good to drive. Interior quality could be better, though.
- 2013 Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6 THP 155 Exclusive (5-door MPV) - as above. Nice looking and with really well-made interior. The gearbox wasn't very good though.
- 2013 Chevrolet Orlando 1.8 LT+ (5-door MPV) - as above. Maybe it doesn't look so great, but it was nice to drive in it. Dynamic engine, very good gearbox, plenty of space.
- 2013 Abarth 500 (3-door) - as above. Basic version, but goes very well. In my opinion it's a better car than Abarth Punto.
- 2013 Peugeot RCZ 1.6 THP 200 (2-door coupe) - as above. Great car, I liked it very much. Nice engine sound, plenty of power (traction control is a must :P), well made and very well equipped.
- 2013 Ford Ranger 2.2 TDCi 4x4 XLT (4-door pick-up) - as above. I was quite surprised, how nice it goes on tarmac - almost like a "normal" car! Of course, it's not that comfortable, but still I liked it :)
- 2013 Toyota Corolla 1.6 Valvematic Prestige (4-door) - as above. In my opinion, it looks... well, bad. But the ride is surprisingly smooth and quiet, and the car can be also quite dynamic. Big surprise!
- 2013 Opel Cascada 1.4 Turbo (140 PS) Cosmo (convertible) - as above. Based on Astra, well equipped and quite nice to drive. Quite good gearbox.
- 2013 Mazda 6 SkyActiv-G 2.0 (165 PS) SkyEnergy (4-door) - as above. Comfortable and nice to drive. Some of the materials in the interior could be a bit better, but still - very good car.
- 2013 Volkswagen Golf (Mk6) Variant 1.6 TDI (105 PS) Comfortline - car used as "people-carrier" in emergency road service, where my friend works. Only 5-speed gearbox and not all materials are as good as expected, but it's quite nice to drive. Especially the engine runs well.
- 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLA 200 Urban (4-door) - car dealer's test drive. Quiet and comfortable, even the double-clutch gearbox runs almost like an ordinary automatic.
- 2013 Nissan Note 1.2 (80 PS) Acenta (5-door hatchback/MPV) - as above. Not bad car, has plenty of space. Interior could have better materials, though.
- 2012 Mitsubishi Colt 1.3 Inform (5-door) - as above. Surprisingly good to drive - simple, dynamic and quite comfortable.
- 2013 Audi A3 Limousine 1.4 TSI (140 PS) S-Tronic Attraction (4-door) - as above. On the rear there could be a bit more space above head, but apart from that - great car. Fast, comfortable and quiet.
- 2013 Skoda Rapid Spaceback 1.6 TDI (105 PS) Elegance (5-door) - as above. The engine is quite noisy, but it's not a big problem. Comfortable and better to drive through the corners than Octavia or Superb. I quite like it, despite the interior made entirely from hard-to-the-touch plastics.
- 2012 Skoda Fabia 1.2 TSI (85 PS) Ambition (5-door) - car that my friend has bought in December, 2012. Pretty nice to drive, good gearbox (but only 5-speed).
- 2009 Ford Focus Mk2 FL 1.6 TDCi (90 PS) Silver X (?) Turnier (5-door) - another's friend car. Quite dynamic for 90 PS, good handling, but could be a bit more comfortable.
- 2014 BMW X5 M50d (5-door SUV) - car dealer's test drive. This thing is almost like... flying fortress. 381 PS, 740 Nm - it needs only 5,3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph. When you are pretty sure, that your speed is about 100 kph, the X5 goes actually at 150-160 kph...
- 2014 Opel Insignia 2.0 CDTi (163 PS) Cosmo (face-lift) (5-door) - as above. New Insignia looks in my opinion better than the previous one. Drive is very nice and smooth, I liked the "sharp" and precise steering.
- 2014 Peugeot 308 1.6 THP (125 PS) Active (5-door) - as above. Quiet and comfortable, with well-made interior. On the other side, it could be more spacious (especially on the rear seats) and more dynamic.
- 2013 Kia pro_cee'd 1.6 GDi L (3-door) - as above. surprisingly comfortable and quite dynamic. I've tested some time ago Kia Carens with the same engine and there it was rubbish ("power lag" under 3000 RPM), but in pro_cee'd it runs very nice. Also, quite good gearbox. Some materials in the interior could be better though.
- 2014 Hyundai i10 1.0 Premium (5-door) - as above. small car with very good looking interior. The engine is dynamic enough in the city, but because of the long-ratio gearbox it's not as fast outside the city. Quite good equipment and price.
- 2013 Hyundai i20 1.2 Comfort (5-door) - as above. Yup, I've driven it some time ago (but it was 2012 i20 Classic Plus), but today was the second time. Why? Because it's one of the possible choices to replace our Toyota Yaris, and today I was driving it not only with the dealer, but also with my mom. She also liked it very much. She likes the i10 too, but i20 probably has the old air conditioning refrigerant - R134a. i10 has the R1234yf refrigerant, which is MUCH more expensive if you have to refill it and is REALLY dangerous if the car is on fire.
- 1998 Renault Laguna 1.8 8V (90 PS) Alize Phase I (5-door) - my cousin is going to buy used car. Yesterday we were off to look at this Laguna. It's from 1998, but it's not after face-lifting. Over 277.000 kilometres of mileage. But it was in surprisingly good condition - there are chances, that my cousin will buy it. :)
- 1996 Toyota Starlet 1.3 (75 PS) (3-door) - I'm not sure, what trim level is that (it has no revcounter, but it has power windows and two airbags). Over 240.000 kilometres of mileage. The Starlet isn't in perfect condition, but it drives quite well, although it needs new shock absorbers. Also, steering near the neutral position is quite imprecise. Other than that, I liked driving it. My friend said, that the engine used to be more powerful some time ago, but it still runs nice and smooth... and responds REALLY quickly to accelerator pedal.
- 2014 Skoda Yeti Outdoor 1.4 TSI (122 PS) 4x2 Ambition GreenTec (5-door) - car dealer's test drive. Quite nice to drive and pretty fast, but it's also quite tall - it's easy to notice that when driving through the corners. Some plastics in the interior could be better.
- 2013 Opel Corsa 1.2 16V (85 PS) Graphite (5-door) - as above. definately not good plastics in the interior and poor gearbox, but otherwise - nice car. It's quite surprising, that it's more dynamic than Chevrolet Aveo, which probably has the same engine. But Aveo has much better gearbox, so it's hard to choose better option here.
- 2014 Ford Transit Connect 1.6 TDCi (115 PS) Trend (4-door panel van) - as above. Smaller than standard Transit and new Transit Custom, but bigger than new Transit Courier. Quite comfortable and dynamic, with surprisingly good steering precision, but on tarmac in bad condition the ride is... "jumpy". It would behave better with some load.
- 2013 Mitsubishi ASX 1.8 DI-D (150 PS) 4WD Intense (5-door SUV) - as above. Another "pocket rocket" from Mitsubishi - this engine is just fantastic! The gearbox could be a bit better though - when quick-shifting, it is possible to choose wrong gear. Good ride quality, but there was a bit of understeer on a fast corner. Passengers on the rear seats have not so much place over the heads, but enough for legs. Good car! And you know what? There is also "Ralliart" version which also has 150 PS, but it has 2,2-litre DI-D engine (from Mitsubishi Outlander)... Holy cow!!
- 2014 Honda Civic Tourer 1.8 i-VTEC Sport (5-door) - as above. Really good to drive, quiet and well made. Dynamic engine and good gearbox. Some materials in the interior could be a bit better, but "instead" of this, the upholstery is really nice - better than average. The main drawback is limited space on the rear seats, mainly for the feet - the reason for that is the fuel tank, which is located under front seats. Very clever "MagicSeats" system!
- 2014 Renault Scenic 1.5 dCi (110 PS) EDC Intense (5-door MPV) - as above. Not very dynamic, but probably sufficient for most owners. Quite good dual-clutch gearbox - a bit too slow in manual mode, but in automatic it was pretty good. Comfortable and quiet ride, nice interior. Unfortunately, this car is vulnerable to strong wind.
- 2014 BMW 320d GT xDrive Luxury (5-door) - as above. It doesn't look so good and sporty like "normal" 3 Series, but it's VERY good to drive. Spacious, comfortable and quite dynamic. I liked it.
- 2014 Mercedes-Benz C180 Exclusive (4-door) - as above. New C-Class looks IMO very good on the outside and GREAT in the inside, interior quality is amazing. There could be a bit more space on the back seats, as well as in the boot (the reason of this is of course rear-wheel drive). Quite fast, but I'd preffer the C200 (184 PS; C180 has 156 PS). Very nice to drive, good gearbox - maybe not so good as 8-speed automatic in BMW, but for sure much better than dual-clutch DCT in Mercedes CLA.
- 2014 Mini Cooper S (3-door) - as above. It definately isn't my favourite generation of modern Minis in terms of design, but... damn, I didn't expect, that it's so fast. 2-litre turbocharged engine is very powerful in almost whole rev range. Great steering and handling, but of course it isn't the car you would call "comfortable" (but in Green and Mid settings it isn't that bad). Overall? Really good car!
- 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0 CVT 4WD Instyle Navi - as above. Pretty good car, even the CVT gearbox was quite good (even in "manual" mode). The engine could have more power though. Plenty of space (especially on the back seats), nice and comfortable. A bit vurnelable to side wind, but still a good car to drive.
- 2014 Mercedes-Benz S500 L 4MATIC - as above. Finally! Mind blowing fast and surprisingly agile. What also was quite surprising - the comfort is not-so-fantastic on the front seats, which was probably caused by 20-inch wheels. The rear seats, however, are... more comfortable than your sofa in front of TV. Fantastic! I've also checked how the massage function works (the "hot stone massage") and... well... it definately works, but it's so strange, that I've turned it off. :D For now, it's also the most expensive car I've driven. Over 50% more expensive than BMW X5 M50d... O_O
- 2014 Volkswagen Polo 1.2 TSI (90 PS) Highline (5-door) - as above. Face-lifted version. Really good small car with nice, comfortable interior. Engine is quite dynamic between ~2000 and 5000 RPMs, but has a noticable lag (turbo-lag?) under 1500-1600 RPMs. Ride is surprisingly comfortable on 16-inch wheels, but I'd choose 15-inchers. Good front seats.
- 2014 Jeep Cherokee 3.2 V6 4x4 Limited - as above. The new Cherokee for sure isn't the most pretty car on the market, but otherwise, it's a very nice car. Good quality interior (ergonomics could be better though) and plenty of space. The engine sounds pretty good and is very dynamic. 9-speed (!) automatic gearbox needs some time to warm up to change gears smoothly and manual-mode is... well, not so good when driving fast. Still, good car to drive.
- 1997 Opel Corsa B 1.2 8V (45 PS) Swing (3-door) - my friend's car, she bought it recently quite cheap. The Corsa has not very good brakes (there's a need to press the pedal quite deep), bad clutch and even worse steering (very loose and without power steering), but... still it was quite fun to drive :D The engine is of course not very powerful, but on the other hand, as a 45 PS unit running on LPG, it really can drive quite fast in the city and outside of the city. Naturally, the acceleration isn't rapid, but still pretty decent. Also the engine sound is nice. Ride comfort? Quite good! If only the car was in better shape...
- 2008 Suzuki SX4 1.6 VVT 4WD Premium (5-door) - car of my girlfriend's parents :) Even though there is a new model on the market (the SX4 S-Cross), this generation is still in production (as SX4 Classic). This particular car is very well equipped (e.g. 4 power windows, automatic aircon, keyless entry). Unfortunately, materials in the interior are pretty hard, but they are at least very well assembled. The drive is nice and smooth. Favourite thing in the car? Probably gearbox - even though it feels a bit like in computer game, changing gears is pleasant and precise.
- 2008 Dacia Logan 1.4 MPi Access (4-door) - my cousin's new car (he still have that 1998 Renault Laguna, but he's going to sell it). The car is in better condition than Laguna, but has almost no equipment at all - only front power windows, power steering, ABS, one airbag, Pioneer CD player and LPG. Clutch pedal "catches" really high, but apart from that, the ride is really quite nice. Also, the engine is dynamic enough for such car. Overall - not bad!
- 2014 Lexus IS 300h F-Sport - another IS 300h, I'm using it sometimes in work.
- 2015 Lexus RC F - 5.0 V8, 477 PS, fantastic engine note... and damn, this is FAST. 0-100 km/h acceleration takes 4,5 seconds and it can loose traction even on 4. gear (out of 8)! What's more, it looks much better for real than on photographs. Yup, I could definately have one of those. :meow:
- 2015 Skoda Fabia 1.2 TSI (110 PS) Style - car dealer's test-drive. Feels a bit like VW Polo, but... better. Quite dynamic, very nice steering, comfort is good as well. Of course, interior's quality is a bit worse than in Polo, but it's much nicer to look at. Overall, really good car.
- 2015 Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (150 PS) Turnier Titanium - as above. Well-made, although I think that some of the materials used in interior were a bit better in previous Mondeo. Of course, there's plenty of space for passengers. Engine is really quiet for a Diesel, and still quite dynamic. Traction could be better, but handling... Yep, handling is superb! I don't really know how it's possible, but I think, that new electric power-steering is more precise than hydraulic power-steering in our 2011 Mondeo. Still not as precise as in my 2003 Mondeo, but nearly as good. I'd like to have this car, with petrol engine. :)
- 2009 Honda Accord Tourer 2.0 i-VTEC - I had to take it and go to vehicle control station. Pretty good car actually - looks nice, dynamic enough and with good gearbox. Interior could be made from better materials though.
- 2000 Opel Astra G 2.0 16V (3-door) Sport - I was driving it when checking its condition, because my friend wanted to buy it. It turned out, that car is in very good shape (apart from worn out brakes), although it has covered... 270.000 kilometres. She bought it. :)
- 2015 Lexus NX 200t F-Sport - petrol version of the NX. More powerful (238 PS vs 197 PS in NX 300h) and much faster. It's even possible to hear blow-off valve when being outside. Apart from IS 250 (because of the engine) and CT 200h (because of comfy, good-looking interior), it could be my another favourite Lexus!
- 2000 BMW 316ti Compact (E36) - recently bought by my friend, who previously had Peugeot 205 1.4. Very interesting car, because technically it's in few aspects similar to BMW E30, styling is of course normal for E36, and the engine is 1.9-litre from BMW E46. Runs really nice (especially the engine is good - surprisingly dynamic and with nice sound), but it needs some minor repairs and improvements.
- 2015 Lexus RX 450h F-Impression - another new test car in my work. Really fast car (almost 300 PS), but steers like an oil tanker. In terms of comfort - same as GS 450h, extremely comfortable!
- 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser 150 3.0 D-4D - test car from our company (although not particularly my dealership). Not fast and with terrible handling on tarmac (Lexus RX 450h is like a go-kart compared to Land Cruiser), but well, this is a proper 4x4. Unfortunately, I couldn't test it off-road.
- 1991 Lexus LS 400 - yup, first gen LS! My boss has bought it. Apart from 2014 Mercedes S500, this is truly the most comfortable car I've EVER driven! Just fantastic piece of machinery!
- 201x Infiniti FX50S - I've driven a few kilometres in it. Powerful, but interior quality and ride comfort could be better.
- 2015 Lexus CT 200h F-Impression - our another new test-car at work. New equipment level - not as "rich" as F-Sport, but still quite nice.
- 199x Toyota Supra Turbo - this car belongs to one of the chiefs of my job. Unfortunately, it has 4-speed automatic gearbox and too big wheels from Lexus IS F, so to be honest, it isn't so comfortable nor so fast as you would imagine. Still, great engine sound and very nice interior!
- 2015 Lexus IS 200t F-Impression/IS 200t Prestige - our new test cars. Faster than older IS 250, but only 4-cylinder and with - to be honest - not so good 8-gear automatic gearbox. Previous one (6-speed in IS 250) was better. Still good cars to drive, especially the top version - Prestige.
- 200x Lexus SC 430 - very "lazy" during a typical drive, engine even doesn't rev above 2k rpms. But if you put your foot down and SC gets a kickdown, it seems to be REALLY fast. Very comfortable and quiet ride, surprisingly precise steering (but power steering helps a bit too much). Overall - surprisingly nice car! But it was one of the latest ones, as far as I know, older cars were worse (because of other gearbox etc.).
- 200x Saab 9-3 TurboX XWD - one of the second-hand cars available for sale in my company. Unfortunately, the car has many problems - for now many of them are sorted out (engine block was changed, cooling system repaired and so on), but all-wheel drive system still doesn't work and brakes are pretty much hopeless. Furthermore, it has automatic transmission (I'd preffer manual here) - it's in good shape, but a bit too slow. Anyway, the car itself is not slow, oh no... 2.8 V6, turbocharged engine produces 280 PS!
- 200x Lexus GS 300 (S190) - client's car with ~250k kilometres mileage. Not in great shape (still better than that Saab above!), but the ride was still VERY smooth and engine works perfect. Very quite car!
- 2015 Lexus RC 200t - new test car in my work. Drives almost exactly the same as IS 200t. Nice car, but still I'd preffer US-version with 3,5-litre V6 engine.
- 2007 Toyota Yaris 1.4 D4-D Terra - this car belongs to my friends mom. Faster than I thought, but overall I preffer our 1st-gen Yaris :)
- 2016 Ford Mondeo Vignale 2.0 TDCi Biturbo (4-door) - car dealer's test drive. Best trim level available in Mondeo plus most powerful Diesel engine. Unfortunately it was only front-wheel-drive (quite noticable torquesteer), but apart from that - really great car. VERY quiet and comfortable (but I'd choose 18-inch wheels; test car was equipped with 19-inch wheels).
- 2005 Opel Astra H 1.9 CDTI Cosmo OPC Line 2 - friends car, after chiptuning (from 150 PS/350 Nm to 180 PS/420 Nm). Surprisingly comfortable and surprisingly FAST. Probably not only quicker than 210 PS Mondeo Vignale, but also quicker than, for example, Saab 9-3 TurboX. Plus good gearbox... and a bit of torquesteer.
- 200x Lexus RX 300 (or 400h?... naah, I think it was non-hybrid) - forgot about that one earlier. I've taken it for vehicle inspection (something like MOT in Great Britain). As far as I remember, it had a problem with the handbrake, but apart from that, it was in very good condition.
- 2015 (MY2016) Lexus RX 200t Elite Business - one of the last Lexus cars I was driving while working there. Although "Elite" is in Poland basic trim level ("Business" is kind of special equipment package for Elite), it's extremely comfortable (despite driving on 20-inch wheels; basic Elite has 18") and very well equipped. I love alcantara-like interior! Engine is more dynamic than suspected, but of course it's no match for the old RX 350. Unfortunately, it needs plenty of fuel - not less than RX 350.
- 2016 Lexus RX 450h Prestige - car dealer's test drive. Although I'm not longer working at Lexus dealership, I still have opportunity to drive some cars from time to time ;) "Prestige" is the highest trim level in Poland. Almost complete list of equipment and 313 PS (previous generation had 297 PS). Better handling than in the old one, but rather surprisingly it feels a bit... slower. Still, great car.
- 2011 Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi (115 PS) Trend Kombi - friend's car, recently bought. Just ordinary Focus we all know and like ;)
- 2016 Fiat Tipo 1.4 16V (95 PS) Lounge -  car dealer's test drive. I was quite surprised, how good it is - really nice interior (for its price, of course), good suspension, REALLY good steering system... Nice-sounding engine (I'd prefer more powerful one, but hey, this 1.4 is the cheapest, most basic option).
- 2016 Mitsubishi L200 2.4 DI-D (181 PS) Instyle A/T - as above. In comparison with Ford Ranger, much more powerful (but sounds a bit like a Diesel engine from 1990s). Really fast, even though it has 5-speed automatic gearbox. Quite comfortable even without any cargo, but on light off-road the suspension is really hard. A bit better steering system than in Ranger.
- 200x Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi Hatchback - forgot about it. I drove it a few years ago, this car belongs to one of the members from Ford Club Poland and is after chiptuning (I don't remember any figures, but it might have something like 160-170 PS). It was very fast in comparison with my petrol-powered Mondeo 1.8 16V, but was less comfortable and offered less fun (IMO), because of too big (/too wide) wheels.
- 2008 Alfa Romeo 159 SW 1.9 JTD (120 PS) - recently bought by my brother-in-law, it will replace Alfa Romeo 156 1.8 T.S. from 2000. The car was tested on dyno and - even though it is not after chip tuning (or any other tuning) - it has almost 140 PS instead of stock 120. This particular example is in very good condition and drives like a new car. Really good suspension and steering system!
- 2016 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Ti-VCT Performance Package - car dealer's test drive, woohoo! In Europe, the Performance Package for GT is offered as standard. The car was also equipped with Premium Recaro 2 package, which includes Recaro sport-seats (surprisingly comfortable, but without heating- or cooling systems), sat-nav system and rear parking sensors. But most importantly, this particular car has... 6-speed manual! It was my dream to drive a V8 car with manual transmission and I have to say, it's fantastic... Goes like hell, sounds like one, too! Engine loves all revs, from lowest to highest ones. In terms of interior quality, Mustang is... no better than Fiesta (in fact, better equipped versions of Fiesta have better quality materials than Mustang), but somehow it's still a very nice place to be. Well, at least if you are in the front - the rear seats are almost as cramped as in the Peugeot RCZ - Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ is much more comfortable in the rear! Still, fantastic car - powerful, with good gearbox, well equipped and with great price tag. Love it!
- 2017 Hyundai i30 1.4 T-GDI (140 PS) 7DCT Premiere Luxury - car dealer's test drive. Third (newest) generation of i30. Although I'm not a big fan of the design (it's OK, but there are quite a few better-looking cars), it's very good car. The interior is a nice place to be in. Good engine, almost impossible to hear inside the car while idling (and still very quiet during actual driving). Unfortunately, 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (7DCT) could be much better - it's good when you drive leisurely, but even in "Sport" mode and after turning from automatic to sequential, it will change gears itself before rev-limiter or when revs are too low. Also, kick-down doesn't work as it should (for example, instead of changing 3 gears down, it usually does it like "1 gear down-2 gears down"). I'd choose manual gearbox because of that. But apart from that, I still think that new i30 is very good.
- 201x Citroen C4 Grand Picasso 1.6 HDi EAT/ETG 6 (automatic transmission) - friend's car, unfortunately I don't know what trim level it is. Exactly as I remembered from C4 Picasso 1.6 THP, the interior quality is really very good and the ride is comfortable. Automatic transmission is OK, but doesn't really like dynamic driving. With this engine, car isn't fast, but driving it is actually quite relaxing.
- 2017 Lexus LC 500h Launch Edition - car dealer's test drive. As far as I know, there are only 50 cars with this trim level in Europe. LC 500h is a hybrid version, it has 3.5 V6 petrol engine and electric motor, which gives us 345 PS. It also has new type of transmission, much better than standard E-CVT in other hybrids. Quality is absolutely superb, ride comfort is very good (even on 21" wheels!) and the car is very fast... and needs less than 7,5 litres of fuel/100 kilometres if you are driving "normally". I love it!!
- 2017 Lexus LC 500 Carbon - car dealer's test drive. Carbon trim level is a bit cheaper than Launch Edition, but anyway the equipment is superb. LC 500 has the same 5.0 V8 engine as RC F and GS F, but with different software and gearbox (10-speed torque-converter automatic instead of 8-speed), also the intake and exhaust systems are completely different. Sound is ABSOLUTELY SUPERB, one of the best sounding V8 I've heard in my life. Definately would buy one, if I was a millionaire :D

- 2015 Rolls-Royce Wraith - even more expensive car than RR Ghost. Immensely powerful (over 630 PS!), but I only had chance to move it around garage. Anyway, rear-hinged doors are something that I can't truly understand - maybe they look kinda cool, but IT'S NOT comfortable to take place in the car!
- 2015 (2016 model year) Lexus RX 450h F-SPORT - only moved it few times and took it to the gas station, so I can't really say anything about driving for now, but I already like this car. Fantastic quality interior, not only in F-SPORT trim level, but even in base "Elite" version!

I hope I haven't forgot about any cars... If I have, I'll add them later :)

FrogsterPL's Profile Picture
Current Residence: Kedzierzyn-Kozle / Krakow
Favourite genre of music: rock, blues, soul, funk
Favourite cartoon character: Hmmm... Rico the Penguin? :P
Borrowed from :Lew-GTR: :)

1. You started to play videogames at the age of...?
Not sure, but it could be something like 5 years old.

2. First game you ever played?
The oldest games I can remember are for example Lotus III (we never had Amiga, our first computer was a PC with Pentium MMX) or... Literki-Cyferki (Letters-Digits;…), educational game for kids. :) (Smile) There was also some kind of Formula 1 simulator, but I can't remember, which one. Graphics were much worse than in Lotus III, with only few colors (black, white, pink, lightblue).

3. First console you owned?
PlayStation Portable. Still got it, I'm using it quite often. :)

4. Consoles you own/owned?
See above.

5. Your favourite genre(s)?
Racing, platform, RPG

6. Favorite game character(s)?
Jazz Jackrabbit, Sonic the Hedgehog

7. Which element(s) in games is/are most important for you (story, graphic etc.)?
FUN!! Also music, realism/physics, partly graphics... story is also important, but not in every genre - for example, even though stories in Need For Speed series are pretty dumb, I just love NFS :P

8. You don't care about ...?
On-line options. Of course, I've played online many times and I still do sometimes, but single player mode (or for example split-screen) is far more important for me.

9. Prefer PC or Console?

10. Your current 3 Fav games?
Only 3? Oh well, I dunno... Maybe Need For Speed: Porsche 2000, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Euro Truck Simulator 2?

11. 3 Games you didn't like...
Hmmm... Nah, I give up. Of course there are many mediocre or just bad games, but I don't really stick to them long enough to remember, which ones were bad. :P

12. One game that's totally overrated in your opinion?
New games from Need For Speed series... (especially from Hot Pursuit from 2010)

13. Ever played an online game, if yes which one(s)?
Maybe not "only online", but there were some games I've tried this way. For example: Jazz Jackrabbit 2, Need For Speed: Porsche 2000, Need For Speed: Shift, Shift 2 Unleashed, ToCA Race Driver 2.

14. What do you think about ...Tomb Raider?
Played only for a few minutes, maaaaaany years ago. I don't really remember anything worthy to write it down here.

15. ...Tetris?
Played a few times for sure, but not my favourite game.

16. ...Sonic?
I love Sonic character, TV-series and soundtracks, but games with him were always a bit too hard (/too fast! :D) for me. Especially in comparison with Jazz Jackrabbit.

17. ...Spyro?
Whaaa? No, I don't know it.

18. ...The Sims?
Nice game, but in most cases I was just building nice, huuuuuuge house, played for a few in-game days... and that's it.

19. ...Legend of Zelda?
Never played.

20. ... Assassin's Creed?
Few weeks ago I've bought Assassin's Creed II. Nice graphics, great dialogues, but controls are just horrible for me. Maybe beucase of the fact, that I've played over ~600 hours in Oblivion and even more in Skyrim... :P

21. GAME OVER!!!
Trying again, but only a few times. Sometimes I'm searching for help in the internet (for example solutions on YouTube), sometimes I try again few months later... and sometimes I uninstall the game :P

22. Game(s) you'd love to see?
New "classic" Need For Speed. No shitty tuning, bunch of stupid in-game people, great out-of-town tracks, fantastic music, even more fantastic cars. With NO Nissan GT-R or Bugatti Veyron on the list, they are everywhere!

Also, The Elder Scrolls VI.

23. Game(s) you're waiting for at the moment?

24. Tag some gamers here, if you want to.
Nope. If you want to do such journal entry, just do it. :)

Today I was driving for the first time in Lexus RX (it is our test-car, hybrid RX 450h in F-Impression trim level). Overall very nice car (but steers a bit like a container ship), ride comfort is just immense. It's also damn quick car (it has 299 PS). But it was quite funny for me, when I saw other hybrid car in front of "my" RX. Why funny? Well... apart from being a hybrid-powered car, there are almost no similarities between those two. Just look at this photo...

RX-Smart by FrogsterPL

Yup - Smart ForTwo mhd (micro hybrid drive). Smallest hybrid on our market versus one of the biggest. I have to say... RX is MUCH faster Meow :3
  • Listening to: AC/DC
Hi! I'm sorry for being offline for such a long time, but I have a good excuse for that. I could say only about very poor internet connection, but there is also another reason... my new (and first) job! In Lexus dealership! :D Currently I'm there for "test period". I'm responsible mainly for ordering parts for new cars and for checking all new cars for damages or just dirt, before we can give new Lexus to our customer. And for two days our dealership was probably the only one in the world, where it was possible to see at the same time not only the Lexus LFA, but also the all-new Lexus RC-F (with 477 PS 5.0 V8 engine). :D
