Glad to see a few people still here tho! It's a nice retreat from Facebook and Instagram.

I used to hate forums for the same reason I hate Facebook groups. Back in my youth all the Ford RS forums were full of absolute bellends much like the fb groups. Only really ever used this forum.

I'm definitely gonna try and get a couple of posts up on here over the winter.

What's everyone daily driving? I can't go past my ep3 but I really really want a new jaguar lol.

I am still here coming up 11 years of ownership..

Robthedoc are you still in Edinburgh ?
No mate I'm in stoke on Trent now but I'm up at least once a month. Usually try and get some kind of car meet on the go when I'm back. Usually the AP Performance gang. I'll post up on here next time if anyone wants to come along.

@jesse888 christmas tradition this year?

Stock ep3 here as my daily, always wondered about a rx8 as they dead cheap.
i think for the money they are fantastic tbh. although id not buy a car i didnt know, id not have mine if it wasnt for sam on here.

View attachment 38571 Can't beat em as a daily. Mine is stock brakes and suspension, definitely wouldn't put coilovers on. 240+ bhp and 172 fl/lbs, lsd, dc5 gears tho and a leather interior out an ep1! :D
That is lovely mate with the leather!
Mines completely stock except for a intake and aftermarket exhaust which i intend to put a standard exhaust back on.
Love it as a daily, does everything i need.
Handles very well for a standard car and has the power when needed.
Ive thought about selling it after almost 3 years of ownership but i cant think of anything else to replace it.
Taking price/maintenance other costs into consideration its cheap motoring!

@robthedoc You'll laugh! My daily at the moment is a k11 micra!
It's all about carrying the corner speed :lol:
Tbh it's a right laugh to drive, and amazing on fuel, plus saves the ek9 over winter.

Your daily is cool! But I know what you mean about an new Jag, XF? So nice to drive :drool: basically and lazy boy chair on wheels, they have cool air vents don't you think?

Still around, will admit I have literally only been briefly on here a hand full of times this year. Got stuck into drifting + modding Supercharged Mx5 and restoring my S14A the last 2 years. My EG6 and DC2 have been quite neglected over the past couple of years. Local car track days have just started up again on the island (have been on stop for years as the motorbike crowd control the only circuit on the island and they had a falling out with local car clubs) so had to dust off the good old weapons to re-educate the next generation of youths in there Financed Fiesta's and Focus STs that have littered the Island. Its a strange little island, overheard some fresh teenager the other day describing the Dc2 as some old 90s Accord to his missus!!! hahahaha

FB and insta have killed most forums. Miss reading a good build thread.
