My 1.8 EX is also 5 years old in a week or so. It's just had its final pre-paid service.
We bought it a few weeks after getting married. Since then, we've moved house, acquired a dog, made a baby, done up the new house while living in a caravan on the drive (whilst wife was pregnant, not recommended), made another baby and I've changed jobs and started a new career. The car's been pretty much our only constant and was utterly reliable the whole time. It is not quite the longest I have ever owned a car, but it will be after another year. I am still not bored with it, which is a first for me as I've never lasted this long without being bored of any other car. I still think it looks futuristic both inside and out. I have no intention of changing it, although admitedly it's now getting a bit small for our needs! I'm not even tempted by the 2012 9th generation model to be honest, as I can't conceive how it could possibly outstyle this one (and if I'm wrong, then it will have to be spectacular).
Without a doubt, it's the best car I've ever had. Not a perfect car by any means, but certainly the most fun!
