New Car Shocker

10 September 2014 - 05:41 PM

Well I picked up my new car last week. No, it's not a ford but I'm happy with it. I test drove the majority of hot hatches and it came down to this and the Fiesta ST. This just felt a bit firmer and raw than the ST, and it takes off like a scalded cat. Yes the Fez has great things going for it, but this takes me back to basics and really does feel raw.

Managed a cracking deal through partners scheme also and got a massive discount.

Anyway......enjoy (or hate)

New Car...bits Going Up For Sale...

He guys...

My relationship with the ZS has now come to an end. I take delivery of my new steed in a few weeks and I'm taking some bits off and selling them. I'll go into detail in the for sale section but they will be collection only I'm afraid...

Been nice on this forum, and I will stay around ;)

Youtube Funnies

Thought I'd start a little light hearted thread for YouTube crackers...

Probably not work safe though...

Anyway, this had me in stitches recently so enjoy...

Car Short List

20 May 2014 - 03:12 PM

I'm terrible with cars, and have had the ZS since January only, but it's leaving me wanting still. Love the looks and handling, but need more excitement (on 4 wheels).

As some of you know I've been looking at the Clio RS 200 edc, the Megane RS 250, ST Fiesta and now I fell in love the weekend when I accidentally went car shopping in Cambridge...

The new Focus ST. I've never really even entertained the idea, but the 4 door actually makes sense with me although I would prefer a 2 door. It would have to be the deep blue st3 version. I am going to make a point of test driving all the cars on my list but I really did fall in love with the Focus. Although I told the better half that I'd be keeping is one at least a year, I think I might have bent the truth a tad.

As of next week, my test drives commence ;)

I'll report my progress back and write up each one, according to me :)

8 Legged Freaks!

Washed the car yesterday and check fluid levels etc...

Noticed that the back of my engine bay is now home to several large spiders...just behind my expansion tank. Cobwebs everywhere!

Never had this before, will have to 'move' them out, as I don't want the little critters setting up a permanent base in the vents etc.

I !Removed! hate spiders!

I suppose they have good taste in cars though...
