    Just a thread to share your driving experiences.

    We don't mind if it's your daily, your weekend car, a hire car or a quick blast to the shops in your mum's car. Give us a pic and your take on how it handles. All makes and marques welcome!

    RX350.jpg I'll go first - here's my current daily mule - Lexus RX350.

    Needed something with more ground clearance than the GT for winter and bought a Gen1 RX300. This Gen2 came up locally and I couldn't resist the bigger engine and fresher looks. Goes well for the weight of it.

    F11 BMW is the workhorse and dog transporter
    911 is my lil baby and is used daily
    Glanza and MR2 turbo are waiting for resurrection
    Land Rover SIII is for when I get too used to shit that works and need something to cut knuckles and make me cry

    I drive the GT daily but the missus has an 01 318 CI Bimmer for the kids and shopping etc. It got M3 lights, wheels and M3 lowered suspension too. Great big cruising wagon with all the toys.

    well at the moment i only have my Daily on the road and being in Canada i am driving a "murican" piece of shit Chrysler Concorde it really is nothing special if folk want pics will get some, but i do have a Toy in the Garage that i really need to get working on but as always lack of funds, and well i have to shamefully admit on here that i have a "Honda" .......i know :oops:...... its a 98 Civic SI with a B16a in it, i was a tech for Honda at the time and was the reason i bought it, its in "decent" shape the plans are of course to pull the engine out and do a low comp turbo build no N/A build for this, would love another GT but the price they charge over here for imports in general is outrageous.

    will get some pics this weekend but i tell you its a "murican" piece of shit i aint even gonna wash it for pics lol, as for the Honda yes its a coupe i do have a 97 ek hatch as well, over here its an "EJ" its a little rougher but my actual plan was to pull out the b series and put it in the hatch but i do like the coupe, the coupe is a 98 so it just misses being a 99-00 EM1, although it looks exactly like an EM1 only difference i can tell is the dash in mine is different from an EM1 and thats it and its got hideous and i mean hideous lexus style rear tailights so they will be getting replaced as soon as i can afford to, and being that its an "SI" model (North American type R ) it has the electric windows and nicer interior "ish" lol.

    And as for the hatch if i can find a k series cheap enough i may do a turbo k swap with that later, over here there is a lot of k engines in lots of diff models here, Acura RSX's, crv's, Acura CSX's (basically a civic with an Acura badge), Accord's, also we have the Acura RDX the older models had the k25 turbo engine was the only model to have that engine.

    My mate had the coupe with a D16Z turbo conversion. And that was a quick car. It was actually an eBay turbo with eBay wastegate, but faultless and quick.

    That's an eg coupe and it's the d16z6 Vtec sohc I do like it, I was toying with the idea of a sohc turbo build in the hatch mine is the d16y7, I have an eBay turbo (need to get it balanced) so I might do it as a tester for mapping as I've never mapped before that way if it does die fuck it lol then do the k swap.
