    Very nice and clean. I'm not a fan of those fog lights, other than that, it looks like the ones we have here in Canada.

    cheers for the replies and yes.. Vtec Kicked in Yo! etc etc etc.. lol

    Back on topic, the fogs are actually factory options and i too prefer the look of the Jap front end but alas i have bought a UK model.

    187bhp and a 0-60 in 6.5 and handles like its on rails.

    Yes its not as fast as some of my past rides but then i wanted to experience something different. All about the handling with this car and when i take it on track and then to the Nurburgring later in the summer it will all make sense!

    My past car list is as follows for those who dont know me...

    90-Celica GT (uk)
    92 Celica GT (uk)
    94 MR2 revision 3 Tbar Turbo (Jap import)
    Pug 306 HDi (never ever ever ever buy French cars again)
    Celica GT4 ST205 (Jap Import)
    Civic VTi (uk)
    Bora TDi Sport 6 speed (uk)
    Honda Integra Type R (UK)

    As you can see i have had the powerful cars and now i want something that sounds mental at full chat and handles better than a lot of RWD cars! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Nice! I've always thought those cars would be a blast to drive.
     
  13. Bought a new toy...Thought id update you lot...

    from what?
     
  14. Bought a new toy...Thought id update you lot...

    The JDM front end is a downgrade from stock being that it makes the car look about 56x more boring.

    i think he is referring to the GT4 in my avatar...

    And yes they are great fun to drive. The sound when your at 8k+ rpm is nuts and honestly sounds like a racing car when your shifting up.

    To keep the weight light they have left out any sound proofing that would normally have been placed in a road going car and the balance is perfect. Weighs in at 1140KG and for a 1.8 it produces 187bhp so over 100bhp per litre!

    a great little vid of some info on the car...

    I wish I could find one of those in good condition. A good one will go for 15-17K CAD.

    Yea I thought you went from the GT4 to this. Why did you trade the GT4?
     
  18. Bought a new toy...Thought id update you lot...

    Needed to fund a deposit for a house we bought so it had to go.. that and the fact it was giving me 19mpg... lol
     
  19. Bought a new toy...Thought id update you lot...

    thats crazy... you know how much this cost me? its a 99 model.. £3.4k GBP
     
  20. Bought a new toy...Thought id update you lot...

    It's alright, if you like turning large amounts of gas into emissions without the side effect of horse power. It's as impractical as teh Celica GT4 and no where near as awesome.

    At least it's still red. Most Hondas of that year in the US have long since oxidized into that awful powdery mess
     
  21. Bought a new toy...Thought id update you lot...

    Handling, dude. Handling.


    and it's not just hondas that fade. red in general is pretty shit.

    i saw a 5 year old vauxhall corsa that looked about 25 years old simply beacuse it was red and had faded.

    Awesome car. Good choice too. The world of driving isn't always about horsepower.
