I wasn't going to bother with a thread as I only picked this up for a bit of fun following the sale of the S3 but some of the Mini fans might appreciate it. It is July 2005 R53 John Cooper Works with 59K miles from new and a full service history. JCW Tuning kit (with certificate) (Exhaust...
 
Hi all, Been a while since I posted on here, think my last post was back in 2015 with my FN2 Civic! I sold my FN2 and changed to the later, 2015 FK2, brilliant machine which brought me 18 months, and many miles of great driving. Since selling the FK2 2 years ago, my car history admittedly...
 
Been a hot second since I posted on RMS so I thought I'd post a bit of a mega thread of the current daily/project. Sold the Leon Cupra R in May 2019 for good money, but needed a car to drive, wife had parked her Lupo GTi at a friends farm since she got a spanky new Arona FR, perfect excuse to...
 
So, after quickly realising that I’m no longer in my twenties and that I really miss the refinements offered by slightly more modern and better equipped cars, and subsequently randomly offered this car a deal for the Corsa, I jumper at it. Now I know there’ll be people who’ll scoff and perhaps...
 
Hi just had a bit of time an I finally got some decent pictures of my CRX so I thought I’d post them here. A mate of mine spent an absolute fortune on this car stripping it right back an doing a full bare shell respray, it’s a low mileage example an it had no rotting patches or anything he just...
 
Just getting a chance to post the new daily. Got it in early September, 2019 30 miles on the clock. Few good options as well 👌
 
I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but, well... here goes. I've long argued against starting project threads as I take a long time to do anything. Years, in fact. But, one thread for the whole lot might move at a pace slightly above a snails, so here it is, one big project thread. So...
 
Hi guys, haven’t been on here in ages but thought I would show you guys my newest car. 2006 Toyota crown majesta (not an avensis😂) 4.3 litre 3uz-fe Factory air suspension with after market controller 19x9.5/8.5 Work eurolines wheels Full lip kit courtesy of the last owner in japan Vip dash...

New to me, 1972 Landrover Series 3, was originally a 2.25 diesel which has been changed to a 2.0 Perkins prima. Tax and Mot exempt. No major plans other than tidy up wiring etc and just enjoy it, will be mainly used for checking sheep, taking the dog out and shooting. May do some light off...
 
I've always wanted to own a Mk 2 and never seemed to get round to it until now. I had been looking over the last year or so online and asking around but to no avail. I put a bit more effort into it and went to view a couple and just found disappointment each time. Then by chance i found a guy...
 
So yes, I caught the bug well and truly for Boxster a few years ago. I picked this one up in Jan 2019, at the time I had a Lapis Blue 01 model ( Porsche Boxster 3.2 S 986 )so how did this one come about? Well that Lapis one impressed a couple of friends enough that they went and got their own...
 
Since there was a bit of interest in this, have had most of the items for a few years but hard to find the motivation to actually start doing it, so here goes. Currently making a mid engined 20V Turbo Mini, it need a fair bit of work so I decided to mid engine it as I always wanted a turbo Mid...
 
Bought this afew weeks back after selling the Cupra and getting another Shepherd pup needed something with a big boot to daily. Ex PSNI Skoda Octavia Scout Had all belts/water pump plus clutch done at 70k only has 82k on it atm. 8v Pd140 engine which actually pulls really well and uses the...
 
Picked this up from @richie_mck at the start of October. A 2006 Mini Cooper S - it's done the rounds on RMS I believe having been previously owned by @Coog worked on by @Wild Thing and then owned by a friend of @Alan B It's got right spec for an R53 being a late model - LSD and stronger/more...
 
Getting mad deja vu here but been tonight and collected another E46 Touring. Took a notion a few days ago and went to on to see what was about, found this gem up in Belfast. 2002 E46 325i M54 Manual 78k genuine miles Full service history Immaculate condition @JH86 piloted it home and I think...
 
Decided about 6 months ago I was going to update the jeep after we got married (December) - so a week after the wedding I sold our E70 X5 and began searching for an F15. Options wasn’t a huge criteria for me as long as it had reversing camera and all the usual spec you come to expect. I wanted...
 
So my affiliation with Vauxhall continues and after being let down last weekend to buy a vx220, the wind was still up me to buy another project. So looking about the classifieds and seen what looked to be a super clean mk3 astra 1.4 merit. So onto the phone and offered him bad money and a deal...
 
I may have hinted at it before but since I sold the defender ive been after a proper workhorse project that can really do some heavy lifting. I wanted something with a 7T GVW cool and could handle a cummins pushing some proper poke without imploding. Capable of moving vechiles without a trailer...
 
So I’ve always wanted one and with the wedding being postponed I decided to bite the bullet and buy one. After looking at a few locally here I widened the search and found one in England at Saxton 4x4 England. Talked to the dealer and was happy so booked the flights with @Paul RS abs flew to...
 
So we are back again with another E60 after the last one which was a total disaster AlpineF30’s Bargain Basement E60 530d Picked this up today and very pleased with it as my new daily to put the M3 in the shed over the winter. Drives like a brand new car and has been well looked after by...
 
2 years after selling the oval, having a brief flirt with something modern (ish) with the ST i just couldn't deal with not having something to tinker with, so the ST went up the road and i thought about a project. Sorting out the Essex v6 in the Landrover reminded me how much i enjoy it and my...
 
Hi! I've been on the lookout for a new daily recently. Duties to include a 6 mile each way daily commute and picking the kids up on the way home. I had thought of a wee Audi A2 as something cheap, cheerful and a bit different. I was open minded though and spurred on by my boss I started...
 
Have this we car for years now and have only recently got back to working at it! Started life as a red base spec 1.2 expression bit has been white for 6 or 7 years the red top was already in but took it out to paint the bay here's some pics Here's how it sat a few months ago After a bit of...
Picked up this on Friday evening and popping my RMS members car thread cherry with a few photos. Came from England at just under a year old with 8k miles by a family member who I've just purchased it from. Spec is brilliant with nearly all available optional extras: 2008 Audi S5 4.2l V8 45k...
 
Picked up tonight. 06 STI widetrack with 61k miles. Clean everywhere bar the engine bay. I'll do a few bits to it I'm sure but here it is.
 
This one has been a long time coming! Bit of background first. When I was 15 I had a summer job and had really wanted a mk2 golf. I bought a big bumper tornado red 8v gti. My dad used it for night navigation rallies and I then bought a classic Fiat 500 before I turned 17 to drive. I drove...
 
So after lurking on here a couple of years decided to finally make an account. After having driven slow cars all my life (MK2 Golfs, MK2 Polo, SDI Golf), I decided for my 21st i'd buy something abit more 'fun' I always had a MK5 GTI in my mind, and always hated the MK4s, but after trawling...
 
I bought this last year unseen and unheard. Bit of a gamble but it paid off. It certainly made Christmas exciting! Always wanted a v12 7 series and at the time this was the highest spec one on the market Registered in 94 the last year of the e32, this one was sold by Paragon House, hence the...
 
So after 2 hours sleep I got a ferry at 3.30 am yesterday morning and so the journey began! About 250 mile drive to Huddersfield and the guys at SSC really did make it a special day. I've never had a car dealer hide the car under a cover and play music while doing the reveal before :joy...
