Heres my 48mpg speed rocket! She sounds a bit lumpy (when at a stand still) at the mo but has seemingly got quicker (DMF)? Only wished i'd gone for the estate! Not enough room for the bikes! She's a quick one. Anyone guess what she lapped at? I know the cost! Scrubed two fronts (Goodyear F1's) and nearly shot a set of pads! ups :oops: made up for it by getting t~#ted somewhere nr Spa!

:wink:


lapped as in nurburgring? 11 mins?


!st lap was 11:24 2nd 13:42ish third i sh~t myself and considered it could be a very long walk home. :shock: Parp!

My current ride is a VW Touran which is far far far too modern but its free and so is the diesel thanks to work!

And as you may probably guess from my username i also like my jap cars.

These are my retro rides and yes 90s cars were the best!

The car that started the craze: 1993 Gti-R, Mint in every way, melted a piston and spent ££££s on the engine only to have it 50 hrs to get written off by some drunk swiss on the wrong side of the road!

Image



The second of the obsession: 1991 Gti-R, previous cars engine swapped in only to spin a shell and crack the crank and fubar the block! bought another engine and modded it to about 300 bhp

Image



The Third and final: 1992 Gti: Coverted it to Gti-R power personally and had lots of fun trying to put 330 bhp to the floor with only front wheel drive! side exit exhaust too! :twisted:

Image

Image


I sold it not long ago and i will be getting another one!

I'm into jap cars as well, would be into older cars if I had more time

Image
1993 Nissan 200SX S13 - pearlescent blue - running stage 2 (C.270bhp) - for sale as soon as it's been serviced


Image
1994 Mazda Bongo Friendee - white over silver - 8 seat MPV/camper


Image
2001 Lexus GS430 - silver with beige leather - unmodified 280bhp V8

(only the Nissan is our actual car but the other two are near as dammit)

Finally got round to posting a pic of my Retro ride. May not be glamourous, but has proved to be a decent buy and happily carts my bikes around at decent speed in the surprisingly spacious boot! :) Only downside is the terrible fuel consumption. :(

Mine seems quite economical by those standards, returning a whopping 23mpg on average! Mind you that's when I've got the Mrs in the car, otherwise the figure decreases significantly! ;)
