  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    I think I’ve reached a point where the full fat AMG/M/RS performance models no longer interest me because they’re out of reach, both financially and in terms of accessible performance. Models such as the C43, S4 and forthcoming M340i start to make a lot more sense as a compromise between daily usability, performance and desirability. And if I was looking for performance thrills in a non-daily driver I’d want a proper sports car, not a tuned up saloon.
  2. Mutt Motorcycles

    Looks like something Richard Hammond would like. So it's a no from me (not that I'm a biker of any sort, let alone a proper one). Talking of which, what's that Indian notHonda thing you can buy new for about 75 quid? Seems like a better deal to me.
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    Some people are paying waaaaay too much for their tyres...
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    Bollocks. Buy an RS6 and live in it.
  5. RS3 - Saloon!

    What you really need is an Alpina B3 touring!
  6. RS3 - Saloon!

    When you're ready, ask Booster if he can help with a decent finance deal on a pre-reg car. I kind of owe him a sale after I bottled out of an M3 a couple of years ago... There's one or two M3 Competition Packs out there in Long Beach Blue. Different to San Marino - more sort of turquoisy then purply - but stunning in the flesh.

  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    That's not going to have done his tracking any good.
  9. Brabham Are Trying To Crowd Fund Their Way Back To F1

    In entirely unrelated news...
  10. Insurance costs?

    I bet they don’t fall if you just take the renewal offer.
  11. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    The only vat they have is full of massage oil. Apparently.
  12. RS3 - Saloon!

    You’d have to get used to your bum twitching if you buy an M.
  13. 944 Turbo S - Project Time

    It's like a work of art. * but only in so much as he's no fecking idea when he's finished.
  14. Gibson Motorsport

    Pretty sure I’ve seen the Gibson Chevron in action. It is, not to put too fine a point on it, fücking awesome.
  15. Boxing thread

    He should **** off to WWF or UFC or failing that a ****ing circus.
  16. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    I recognise the rear of that RS4... although I remember it being smaller/further away.
  17. 2018 UK F1 TV schedule

    The brand new Official Formula 1 theme is here! Instantly forgettable. Sounds like it's been ripped from the theme tune to The Day Today.
  18. Electric cars. And tax?

    No government has ever taxed something with the intention of stopping people doing it.

  21. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    How many thousand pounds is the carbon look centre console?
  22. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    Probability? (And you told me...)
  23. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    Y'know, I'd keep it on those rims. They suit it perfectly. A nice hint to those who know their 911s that it's not a boggo standard car. Maybe put some more track day focussed rubber on the spare rims you have and swap as and when?
  24. New BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

    I kind of want to like the AMG GT 4 door, but, well ... it's hideous.
  25. New BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

    They've put the bloody grille on upside down again.
