    Got my fist n/t at 25 years old, now 31 and had two n/t dsm and now proud owner for almost three years coming up in April of a 97 awd talon tsi. Around me is nothing but Hondas. I had a Honda but didn't last to long because of my love for DSM. Ppl can go the honda route like everybody does but I will stick with my unicorn of a dying breed and keep it alive.

    Bought my first DSM (N/T 2g) when I was 16 in 2002 and my 2g GS-T in 2006 when I was 20. Still have both cars and I'm 28yrs old, the N/T is the ole' reliable DD when the GS-T is down for mods or maintenance... :thumb:

    Well, since everyone else is posting there age, I guess I kinda will also. Let's just say I'm closer to 40 than 30.

    Anyway I started off with a 1.8 :coy: that I got in Dec 1994 (at least it was brand new even if it didn't have any options). I got the GS-T from the original owner in 2001, and still have it. I thought about selling it a few years back, partly because I got tired of kids wanting/trying to race me all the time which got pretty annoying, but I kept it. After getting married, I realized I may never have the chance to own a "sports" car ever again. I've only put 20 miles on it the past 5 years.
