  1. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

    Was it any good?
  2. New pants please

    That is some serious air and hang time...
  3. New pants please

  4. A few from the village car show

    What is that?!?!?!?!
  5. GLC 63S

    https://www.caranddriver.com/flipbook/these-are-the-quickest-suvs-weve-ever-tested-so-far#12 I knew it was quick - given the GLE 63 SUV is 0.1s faster than the GLE 63 "Coupe", I suspect mine is quicker (@ 1935kg) than the 2020kg GLC 63 "Coupe" that is #1...
  6. GLC 63S

    Picked one up at lunchtime today... Money I should have saved, but hey. Will put up some pics once I take them - after it gets its ceramic paint stuff done tomorrow.
  7. RS3 - Saloon!

  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    ...and my new one is even faster and more grip (bigger tyres - and the same drivetrain as the E63S).
  9. RS3 - Saloon!

    You could go test this one:
  10. Wow! Dangerous driving indeed - they were going more than 20km/h!
  11. RS3 - Saloon!

  12. GLC 63S

    Yep. The sides of the wheel are "Dynamica"/alcantara, and the seats have the same fabric running as ribs in among the leather of the front seats. Also, just like Porsche - the front headrests have the AMG Affalterback logo (the circular one) embossed into them.
  13. GLC 63S

    Yes and yes.
  14. GLC 63S

    Interestingly the GLC 63S was regarded as the "fastest SUV in the WORLD!" at 0-100 in 3.8 or somesuch... No sure it it keeps its crown now the Urus has launched.
  15. RS3 - Saloon!

    That thought is truly scary... When I joined TSN 2004/2005ish it was because I had issues (manufacturing quality) with the .:R32, and this site was recommended to me by an independent VAG specialist. Then I won the Boxster 2 years later, starting a terrible habit of one lass, a rescue kat and a hooligan daily driver and a "weekend and holiday toy". I have been much more sedate at updating my Dailies - .:R32, .:R36 Estate, ML500 (named "Moby Dick") Toys - Boxster (987), 996.2 C4S (tweaked), mad Jaguar XKR (Salsa Red!) with black&speed packs, Panamera, C205 C63 Coupe, GLC 63S (named "Junior") The sequence may now slow for a while. Ummm, the sequence WILL now slow for a while...
  16. RS3 - Saloon!

    Something with a lot more grunt, traction, noise and intimidation factor.
  17. RS3 - Saloon!

    So hurry up and buy something Riz... I made a decision yesterday - picked it up today. You snooze, you lose...
  18. GLC 63S

  19. Post a pic of your car

    That blue highlight in the sun is superb...
  20. 2006 987 Boxster 2.7

    You will end up being able to sell your services back to Porsche as a resto-mod guru.
  21. 944 Turbo S - Project Time

    This is getting waaaay too serious... Are you going to apply the same electrickery wizardry to the 996?
  22. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    looking good!
  23. 944 Turbo S - Project Time

    That is coming together nicely.
  24. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    Lol... The only other person I know with a chimp sidekick was in an anime when growing up, and then in a Warchowski kids movie... GO SPEED RACER, GO!
  25. New pants please

    I'm sure Mr Plod would be very interested in that...
