Current mods: one electric window that's fallen out of its runners, one dent in the rear right door, and a bloody mess inside.

I love my car

jeez, forgot about this thread, but had a look in my logs today and saw someone looking at my pics

that 106 is long gone now

in it's place is this:



F Reg (1989) Peugeot 205 1.6 GTi

hot hatchbacks don't come much better than this

at the moment i've stripped out the interior and added loads of sound deadening - should be back on the road in the next month or so.

as for daily drivers (the 205's my weekend car) i have a diff car every day of the week recent ones have been mazda rx-8, nissan 350z, vx220 turbo, audi a8, leon cupra r, clio 182 sport....

I finally got the new pics of my car:

2001 Honda Civic LX w/ rear spoiler
1.7L 16 valve SOHC
115hp
Mods:
JVC KD-S890 MP3 / CD player
$1000 of burton snowboard/bindings/pants/jacket/gloves in trunk, with $150 K2 boots.

Upcoming Mods:

Took this at night, but you can see the new mp3 player. Notice the awesome red cd; Rage Against The Machine Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium!


Ugly Toyota dealer license plate is gone now!




Not bad since I'm only 17 with no job I guess. Then again my parents obviously aren't scraping for money. (house is only 2 years old as of january 04)

Had my motor tweaked a couple of months back, just got round to sorting photos. Rest of car pics are on pg. 1 of this thread btw.

Not much to look at really, except the backbox with 4" pipe :



nice and shiny stainless with the Prodrive logo :



and the uprated intercooler hoses (I know, I know I need to de-gunk the engine bay !) Prodrive branded but I think they're actually Samco :



ECU has been remapped too so it now kicks out about 261bhp and 348Nm of torque at 3200rpms. The torque improvement is superb, really punchy. And the exhaust sounds mint. Now I drive through tunnels with the windows down

I like.

Power Assisted steering on the A-reg version, woah.

My G-reg Volvo 340 1.7 GL has heated seats, electric windows, electric mirrors, loud custom aftermarket sound system but no power steering.

She only has just over a month to go then I am retiring her.

I most likley have the loudest Volvo 340 in the UK, but not in the world, I know someone in the US who had a 343 with twin Cerwin Vega Strokers getting 1000 WRMS each

I'd never heard of a Vauxhall Frontera, but from looking at pictures of some they do favor each other alot. It also goes by Isuzu Rodeo here in the States.

This is my usual ride in Seoul. When I'm in NYC, I usually walk. The subway is so much money now and it's good exercise.

Well, my own car, which i don't have pictures of, is a "91" Nissan Maxima with close to 200K miles on it. I love my car, its got a V6 and still gets ~30mpg highway. and yeah, i get annoyed with all the excuses people give for driving big SUV's and trucks when they don't need them. "I like being up higher so i have a better view of the road" yeah, whatever. In case you can't tell i absolutely despise SUV's and minivans, and i don't like trucks either. I look at a vehicle based on handling, ride quality, interior comfyness (i'm 6'2"), fuel economy, that sort of thing. my next car (once my current one rusts out from under me) will probably be a 98 Maxima, prefferably with standard shift.

right...........

Rolling radius when the car isn't moving = not important
rolling radius when moving = as my car is on 15" its on the exact same size wheels as when it was on stock wheels, so the radius is no different if you knew your cars you wouldn't have asked that question.

as for the top speed its easy you put your foot on the peddle and go. it has a rev range of up to 8 grand, plus its a gti, hence harder seals in the engine and so will bear the pressure, better top speed in a 1.3 golf was quoted as 90mph and i got 110mph out of my old one on a stock engine. As we all know all speedos give a false reading as a manufacturinbg ploy, you see a high top end you think oooo fast car when actually they top out at a good 20-40mph lower than claimed by the speedo, a golf gti speedo reads up to 160mph hence 135mph was easy for it.

My cavalier exceeded the speedo w/o the governer slowing me at 109. my speedo went to 110, the 5 dashes for 115. when i topped it (porbably riding a little over redline for a few secs) the needle was bouncing a bit past the 115 mark. EDIT: by bouncing i mean it couldnt go any firther
