    What spec is your MX5? the one we're picking up on Wednesday is a S-special with the LSD and extra bracing and Bilstein suspension, its the 1.6 too.
    Shame it's the 1.6, you're going to want to do the 1.8 swap eventually. But good job on snagging the LSD, makes a whole world of difference with the feel of the car. With such a short wheelbase, the open diff just doesn't feel near sporty enough to me.

    His Miata is the R package, one of ~47 made in 1997.

    Well actually we spoke to a couple of specialists who advised the 1.6 would be the better engine for track use (which is what it's going to be used for) as it's only a fraction slower than the 1.8 and it is a more free-revving engine than the 1.8 so better for forced induction mods which will be coming down the line.

    Yea first on the list is to lighten and strip it out, roll-cage, buckets etc and new suspention depending on what quality the Bilsteins are, then at some point it'll be turbo'd.

    A family friend got a new car and gave my brother and I her 2003 Toyota Corolla. It's pretty basic, though perfect for a first car.

    It sure beats using my mother's Uplander, which has worse gas mileage and a ton of blind spots.

    My friend had one of them as her first car. She care for it, therefore reversed into (many) things as a form of measurement rather than bothering to actually park and manoeuvre.

    Whose hating on Miatas?

    Thats my miata.

    I can safely say that I enjoy driving my miata more than my rx8 that I had before. Its not nearly as fast, but I love my miata very much.
    I mean, this car was great. But not as much after this.

    I'm certainly not. I wouldn't advise a first-time driver get one, but they're excellent little cars designed by a team that sets out to do just one thing: Build a car that provides pure driving bliss.


    I want to buy one. Probably will once I have a steady jerb. The Ford is a wonderful thing to have, but it corners about as well as the Queen Mary, and I live out in the country with sooo many delicious apexes that are just begging to be clipped.

    They're pretty sweet little cars.

    If were to repaint my car(it has it's chips, scapes, and has been keyed.), i think i'd go for the same Rallye Red that it is already.

    Also, who does this?



    It's had that since i got it though. I actually haven't damaged the paint yet, that i am aware of.

    A graphic representation of the amount of Mustang sticking out on the main road I use to get to College.

    I find it strange that you think the Mustang is so ridicilously wide.

    The Vauxhall Insignia is one of the most sold vehicles in the UK and it's 1,856 mm wide. The 4th gen (99-04) Mustang is 73.1 in (or 1,857 mm) wide. I think the owner is just overly cautious (or not very good at parking).

    The Mustangs been the only car to cause a problem and its parked there several times.
    Perhaps they were being overly cautious though (you'd think they'd be good at parking considering its an LHD car in a RHD country).
    I don't recall there ever being an Insignia ever parked there, but I would remember an Insignia being parked there if it caused an obstruction.

    It's probably either an inability to park properly or an overly cautious driver. The math puts it no wider than the average car in the UK.


    Also, parallel parking when you're on the curb side of the vehicle is a bit wierd. I can park just fine if I'm on the street side, as is the norm, but if I try to park on the curb side I always end up three feet out in the street. If it's LHD I wouldn't be surprised if that's at play as well.

    Unfortunately, because I have to drive cross country, I must retire my camry (front suspension is shot and the back is well on it's way, plus it's driving way too hot for me to be comfortable driving through the Mojave desert). I'm picking up a 2007 Corolla tomorrow afternoon and my brother is inheriting my blue Japanese econobox. He was a good car to me, and he will be to my brother *salute / play taps* Pictures forthcoming when I get back from the dealer tomorrow.

    Because I hate HID's to death. Xenon, LED and HID should go to fucking hell.

    Plus, white rims and yellow headlights go well together imo. I think it's cool because it's a bit misplaced. I can see why people wouldn't like it.

    Yay for oregon, home of dirt, and the color green. I'm an oregonian too, and our cars are never clean. They get dirty so fast, we don't bother washing them.

    LEDs are great. They use next to no power and last forever. I want to retrofit LED marker and tail lights, though I will keep my sealed-beam headlights.

    LED looks like pure crap. It's so ugly and doesn't belong on any car. The only car it looked good on was the R8, and now EVERY car company uses it. Ford, Audi, BMW, Hyundai and so on. It's a fucking ugly fad and people are gonna hate it eventually.

    Yeah, put it on your air powered horse wagons and fart powered trains then. Keep it off petrol cars. Car styling from 2010 and afterwards has just been going downhill.

    Edit:

    "Let's make a 700 (or so) horsepower Lamborghini with a huge gasguzzling V12. Let's also make some power efficient headlights. That's nice."
