    That's right who likes a modded car and a PC, I do.

    I have a none standard scooby and will post some images as soon as I've cleaned and polished it.

    My car is water cooled and so is my PC :clap:
    My car is not standard but you'd never guess?

    What does you car have in common with your PC and why?

    Its funny, but untill now I had never thought about modding a car except maybe alloys, but now I look at my motor and keep thinking of things I could do to it.

    If I do any mods on the car they will be subtle, maybe some dashboard tweeks, bl00 led the dash maybe.

    My car has 2 LCD's (one 14in, one 5in) and so does my computer

    My car goes fast, but is a hog, so is my PC

    I have windows in both

    I have neon in both

    I have great sound in both

    I have DVD, MP3 and Wireless Lan in both (Wireless lan in the car to download mp3's while parked in the garage)

    My car has 4 wheels, so does my PC

    I have power windows in my car, and my PC...

    I have a steering wheel for both (usb for the PC)

    Both have been "overclocked" (My car has a Kenne Belle Supercharger and chip)

    Neither of them were stock for more that about 2 minutes...

    You know you've got a problem when your car's air-cooled and your Pc is water-cooled.,..

    Hehe, same reason I went for the 5-door it was easier to persuade 'er indoors. Is yours an import then ? I'm assuming it's an STi 5 or 6. If it is I hope you've had a re-map done unless you want to see no.3 piston popping out the scoop ! Jap imports don't like UK fuel.
    Mine's a EU import and I've been in a pitched battle with Subaru Benelux over trying to get the Prodrive Performance Pack fitted in the UK, but they're saying it'll void my warranty - even though the kit is made in England they're insisting I take the car back to Belgium and get it fitted there. I'd much rather Prodrive in Banbury fitted it than some dodgy Belgian greasemonkey ! If I don't get any joy I may just go for EcuTek or Motec ECU and a decat exhaust (much cheaper than PPP) but then it really will be bye-bye warranty. :(

    Got nicked last night for speeding 46 in a 25 :waah:

    Taken some pics of the car, will post this week.

    Should we have a scooby pics section or bungit in with all the rest?

    I'm more opposites with them.

    My PC is fast.
    My PC is cool in the summer.
    People are jealous of my PC.
    My car has never crashed.
    My car goes for miles without maintenance.

    Hehe believe it or not that interior pic is from a Skoda, and if you think that's bad you should see the bodykit and external works. I posted pics if it at OCS forums but can't find the links now (obviously :( )

    Spawny - looks like you are going through the same self restraint problems as me - 6 points in 6 months :waah:
