First purchase was the TS55 REBQ with guide rail and accessory kit.

Second purchase was the MFT3, here in Australia for far more than what you pay in the USA. RRP is $AUD1275 = $USD1183  [sad]

more systainers for me, festo didn't make the tools or they were out of my price range for the use they got so I had to buy makita or similar and hide them in a decent box  [smile]

CXS which was after I told myself (and my gf at the time) I wouldn't buy another tool from Festool because of the price. Since then it's gone downhill.

Or uphill...

I wish I could remember! [eek]  The last two years have been a GREEN blur! After the CXS, it 'might' have been the T18+3, but I truly can't remember what was #2.

Cheers,

Man it all started last summer with a RO150. Then a RO90 and a bunch of sandpaper for both. This year it all went...downhill   ;). A new Kapex (to take advantage of the 10% sale they had back in March), then an MFT3, the OF 2200 router then the MFK 700, the OF1400 and LR32, the Carvex and all the extra bases... it has become a blur for me now...I know I have spent well over 6K on Festool this year alone and do not regret anything. And to think I was one of (ignorant) critics of this company a few years ago...

Out of a wealth of curiosity, and a spat of boredom.... I went back to all my purchase invoices to see if I could answer the original question.

Success!  The second Festool I bought was an ETS 125 Sander one month after the CXS first purchase, and thereafter I found I needed a better ShopVac/Dust Collector, and that's when the Green Disease started in earnest! [scared]  Not Kidding!! [eek]

after buying a TS55 REBQ-Plus-FS, I looked through the website and there was most "special offer" ...

... I bought a MFT/3.

Well, hey Chrisprols, welcome to the FOG forum. 
Looks like you're on your way with some good Festool kit.  It's been  a long time, but I think my first/second purchase was not quite identical, but similar to many others on here:  a Ts75 saw, the old style MFT table, and a CT vac
I see you're from France so:  "Bienvenue!"

added PS to the other members:
I couldn't help but notice the post above the last one.  Whatever happened to the blue elf guy--does anyone know?  He seemed pretty gung-ho about the whole Festool brand and very enthusiastic to detail all his purchases.   I don't recall seeing any posts by him recently.  Did he flame out and got hooked on some other type of buying spree?  I do remember that he had some amusing threads--has anyone kept in touch with the guy?  It'd be a shame for Festool / FOG to lose the captain of its cheerleading team.

ETS 150/3 for me.

Needed a finishing sander. Thought it would be good in the future to have a finishing sander finer than a Rotex 150 in the future.

There was a deal for 100 discs of 160 grit paper for free with the deal, normally $106 down under.
