This is a bit of a read... Volkswagens MkV Golf, in 'Match' trim, has to be one of the greatest hidden gems of modern automotive history. Having bought one off Jo's father around four years ago as a stop-gap, it ended up becoming our sole family car when the girls were very young. Yes, it was...
Porsche away and 5 series for daily duties had been torturing @RobsWRX for ages for this 1998 fto in manual Plans are tidy bumpers , headlights and spacers for wheels
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...
So After spending the past 8 months in Japan on the train and just viewing cars, I have now bought a car. A 2007 350z Nismo, not the best photos but there are so many cars in the garage its difficult to get a good angle. Car had 80k miles, FSH and you can see from photo how clean the engine bay...
So I finally went and got another Jap turbo 😊 longed for another one for years since selling my damson purple s14a. With the prices rocketing up I thought if I don’t buy one now I probably never will! went and looked at various manual Jap turbo cars that were available locally but they were...
It’s done!! Thanks again to everyone that helped me out in the M4 prices thread :cool: Going back a couple of weekends, I parked on Boucher outside BMW, nothing unusual about that, we look at cars all the time with no intention of changing and walk up and down like muppets dreaming. Making a...
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...
Well here we go again, 3rd time I've found myself being pulled back into one of these. After having the Octavia Scout as my sensible car for the past year I started a new job which came with a company van, fair to say my arse hadn't even warmed the seat of the van and the Scout was sold to make...
Well most of you will know this car pretty well! Decided a few weeks ago that I would move my 535d on and go back to a hot hatch. After looking for 197's, clio 200s, type Rs I contacted @Woodcutter too see if he still had his S3 for sale! Turned out he did and was a gent to deal with...
A number of years ago I rented one of these and thrashed it round the Nurburgring. During induction and general 'ring training the rent4ring instructor said that all those in the room taking a Swift for the day will never look at one in the same way again. He was right. So it's no surprise that...
So with my old man not getting much use out the Cayman S to the point I drove it more than him this year he was on the hunt for something a bit more refined and usable. He came across this 2016 640D M Sport in Glacier silver with just 13k on the clock. Call was made Friday to BMW Aberdeen to...
So been a few years in the wilderness in terms of cars, took a random notion one day that I wanted something with a bit more pace so the search began. Couple of weeks of hunting looking at all manner of cars, few calls, few videos and a viewing later and I had decided on a 540i, nice and...
Over the last few years a lot of people have been asking for a thread on my 2010 Galaxy Titanium X but I don't the RMS massiv are ready for something like that right now. Back in 1995 I was walking to school one morning and a red F355 came ripping up the Lisburn Road; I watched open mouthed as...
So this is a members thread I’d always dreamt I’d be able to do but honestly & secretly knew I’d never be able to. Here is my 1986 JDM (done Irish) Twincam. Black on black with 13’ mini lights. I’m sure most know the info now from podcast etc but I’d always wanted on since being 14/15yrs old...
Well after 9 months it finally arrived and I must say it was worth the wait! Allegedly it was the seat material that caused the delay. Won’t bore you with the details but I specced the colour and DSG box and so glad I did. The box is a smooth and effortless drive with enough power to keep me...
This is a project that i started with my Dad 14yrs ago, it was bought at a classic auction in mullusk just as the hammer dropped... complete notion by my dad, he has fancied one years ago after he wrote off his V8 MG BGT but ended up with an V8 SD1 because my sis had just arrived! So here is...
Some of you will know my car history and think "what the hell?" as it's the last car you think I would buy. It's a 2007 Kia Magentis. So with my car getting restored, the plan was to buy a cheap sub £2000 car to drive while this was happening, and over the winter when I SORN it. I wanted a...
For some the ultimate dream car is the Ferrari, Porsche or the likes, for me since I was a teenager it was a simple Honda S2000. It has always been a dream of mine and finally it became a reality. Probably just a convertible for some, for me it is everything I love about cars. I was sad to see...
Bought this from Ashgood Porsche in London last February just before the first lockdown. Never got round to doing a members thread until now, @Cooper finally wore me down! It’s a 2010 Carrera 3.6, with the all important options of manual box, PSE, Sports Seats, Sports Chrono, and rear wiper...
Imported this and got it delivered last night after a few months of waiting on delivery from Japan and Swansea, never had a Subaru before but thought try one, I’m told this sort of model with the DCCD widetrack is a fairly good job. have gave it a first clean and other than that I haven’t took...
The big Passat wagon finally died for the last time about 4 weeks ago so I didn’t have the want or means to try to throw more at it for it to happen again so had to bite the bullet and go for something a bit newer with a warranty. Didnt have the luxury of a massive budget and the recent...
Posted a few threads on here in recent times changing begeeen cars but 1st love was my old E46 M3 which I had to sell due to personal circumstances in 2013. Then tried an E92 M3 which was good but didn’t 100% gel with it - 15mpg around my short trips didn’t help either lol But needing 5 seats...
Bit of a difference from my usual MINI threads. @Wild Thing had a V50 2.4 D5 years ago and always vowed he would have another at some stage. I quite like the look of the V50 and the practicality of it, so I was all for the idea. On a casual browse through the classifieds, this popped up. So, we...
Hey guys so I got this wee (massive) gem yesterday. 42000 miles and would like to start tidying it up.. First will be getting the car completely checked over a good thorough clean. Would like to sort out some of the bodywork and refurb the wheels.

Been quite a few car changes for me over the past 6 months as I wanted to tick a few boxes. Have wanted an M4 for quite a while, when they initially came out I loved the look of them but after plenty of seat time in @WSM car I wasn’t a massive fan of how they drove. Mostly that was because I...
So I took a half-notion last week and put up a wanted ad for a 'Westfield Chassis' as a winter project.....An hour later I did the deal on this. (this is the photo I received from him pre-purchase lol) It was collected by Bartlett Transport on Wednesday from Derby and I received it at 9am...
Well folks thought it was about time to throw a thread up for the we Sol Based in NI was imported in 1999 iirc then bought circa 2003 Spec 1993 original JDM Spec Manual transmission non LSD :( JDM B16a Transtop AUX fogs Gathers Speakers Storage bins etc Stolen first time from a Tesco Car...
Bought this car on a whim in the early part of the year, it has pretty much lay out the back of my house ever since, with only the odd scoot around town to keep it ticking over. It was part of a classic car collection on the Isle of Man, the owner had amassed a huge variety of stuff in a bid to...
Hi folks, After selling the mighty S4 and the bike getting rid off... I decided to buy something a tad different to my usual fast motors. Always wanted one since a kid due to the touring car racing etc Ideal for summer trips with the family and baby os mountain of extras :laughing: 2004 V70...
