I just spent the weekend in Oklahoma of all places!
And came across this little charmer.

Not a bad car I guess...I prefer the Murcielago myself...they happened to have one of those in the garage, bastards!
Along with a Mercedes SLR and Ferrari 430...

The color combo is stunning. It's a good spider but it's a bad GT. A fried of mine has the coupe and it's a pain in the ass on the everyday use. He has both 360 and Gallardo, and the 360 is way more user-friendly (a tad higher, bigger trunk space)than the lambo. If you want to go on a 5 day trip with the 360 you can, with the other it's more difficult..

They did say that when they get it serviced, they need to take it up to Dallas, about 4 hours drive away, I was like "excellent, a good blast" but they get it picked up on a low loader because driving it for any length of time is VERY uncomfortable!

How the other half live...

Picked up my Type-R last night. It's bloody fast!! Its a one way ticket to lost my license. 6k rpm, BWAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Its so well built, looks awesome in my opinion and all the kids in their Corsas wanna play, and I can pwn them without even using the i-VTEC y0!

It was awful driving it home. 30 odd miles back from Pennine Honda in Rochdale near Manchester in torrential rain and rush hour traffic. 60mph in the inside lane following Amanda in my 206, hehe.

I'll get pics when it stops pissing it down and when I'm not working.

Its done just under 40k

The electronic steering dooh dah s a bit odd. In my mums Jazz I like it, but on the motorway is seemed notchy. That may have been due to the fact the motorway was full of standing water though. I've not tested the brakes much as its got new pads on so im just bedding those in. The gearbox is lovely but if you hit the VTEC its hard to keep your hand off it as you're constantly changing gear to keep up .

I'm happy with my purchase, and there tons of room in the boot for the dogs when I walk them on the weekend. Fuel economy is a little worrying, but at nearly 22 it was time to get something I actually wanted.

Hey i'm 22, wish i could insure a car like that... not that i'd buy one of those specifically, would probably be a 2.8 Capri, which is probably slower but would be loads more, work that out...

Onto the car itself, i thought that generation of Civic looked a bit plain (didn't they all until the new one?), but with the Type R kit it stands out nicely, plus you can blow away chavs that have stuck the same kit and a sticker on thier 1.2, which ought to be fun.

Awesome car, Dup. I expect you to hail us with stories of the wacky adventures the VTEC will inspire.

Im parked a few streets away from work there. I usually park in a nearer car park but my permit has my private plate on which I need to transfer yet.

No leather trim. It's quite rare on these and quite frankly although it looks great, I wouldn't want it. You'd fly out the seat. The Alcantara is just as good I think.

That's the artificial leather, I suppose it is. Leather is comfortable, but it's a freezing surface in the winter and it can be hard to maintain too, or a pain in the arse should I say.

Nice bike that Waddy, love the colour.

Regarding that though, I know this bike isn't no where near as good, but my friend just passed his bike test and his dad bought him a new (well, when he got it) motorbike. It's a 'Honda CBF 250', 250cc and I've been on the back of it, it's a really nice bike. He's only 17 and when he says, 'I've got a Honda CBF 250', no-one believes him because they are quite expensive, for a first bike anyway lol.

Anyway, it's the same as this bike below, on a 56 plate with 300 miles now. cool.gif

0-60 is something like 2 seconds, probably because you can't get all the power down with the bike "only" weighing 1300lbs.

Bikes have always impressed me, but ive always been to chicken sh*t to do the test, they do scare me a little.
Ive seen bike crashes, and they aint nice.
I just think id be dead in a matter of weeks.

But they are awesome, big bikes like these anyway. Chicken chasers are wank.

You wouldn't think much of it to look at a bike, but they are actually quite technical. Same aspects as a car, clutch, brakes etc but in different places, something which I think would need good amounts of practice to get used to.

On the Honda CBF 250 (my friends bike), it has two brake handles, I thought the one on the right was the front brake and the one on the left was for the back brake. However, I was right about the one on the right being for the front brake, but the left handle is the clutch and the back brake is a little peddle on the right of the bike, just in the centre. Then on the left, you have a peddle for the gears, which is situated around the centre of the bike which goes up and down, upshift and downshift.

Confused me actually, eventhough it's probably the same on most bikes.

Sorry for jumping right into the middle of motorcycle conversation, but have you guys seen the newest generation of Skoda Fabia?

Damn, it looks butt-ugly in my opinion. Worse than the previous generation, definitely. The previous was looking at least a BIT sporty-ish, especially with some nice rims and additional parts. And this one? Looks so calm and... flat. When I'm looking at it, I get the strange feeling it can't go really fast, even with the most powerful engine.

Are they now going to apply Roomster design to all their models or what? confused.gif

For people who are not familiar with Skodas, here's how the prev generation Fabia looks like:
