What do you drive/ride?

Post #1 by Jam0r » Thu Jul 24, 2014 10:17 am

Previous cars include

Fiesta 1.0
Just rubbish.

Fiesta MK4 1.4
Heavily modified, was running a 1.7 Puma engine after the 1.4 died. 4 pot brakes, KW coilovers, stripped out and bucket seats. Man those were the days.

Volvo C30
Company car, 1.6 thing which was very comfy but stupidly slow and the doors would ALWAYS close on you whenever you opened them. Looked nice though and the seats were stupidly comfy. Would happily cruise along for hours in that thing and the looks were very Marmite

Fiesta ST (again modified)
Went through various states of tune including being supercharged and producting 267bhp and 211lb/ft. Was a beast but was worried about it blowing up the gearbox so changed over to Mountune and ran their MR200 kit instead before selling it.

KIA Ceed GT Tech
The current chariot, 1.6 Turbo with 200bhp and 266Nm. It goes fairly well, has a spec list to rival the space station as they say (cruise, xeons, nav, heated seats + steering wheel, reversing sensors, reversing camera, recaro seats, etc) and drives really nicely. Comfy enough for the kids in the back but handles well enough and gives plenty of grip when i'm on my tod. Remap only will see 240bhp and 330Nm so that may be on the cards in the future.

Previous cars/bikes:


86 MK1 MR2.
All stock, only changes being aesthetics, was bought when I was 15 and wasn't put on the road till I was 18 :)

Had nealy everything done to it, new archs, respray, engine transplant etc. Spent a small fortune, sold it shortly after for a deposit on my second motorbike :(

Probably the thing I most regret.

First motorbike, VT125 (honda's baby cruiser) refused to get a pop pop bike so got myself a 4stroke Vtwin. Nice bike and would hold 70 fairly well, was part ex with my second bike just under a year of owning (passed test, 14hp wouldn't cut it)

Onto my VT750, was the new face lift model so looked the dogs. Nothing much to say about it, done me well till I trashed it :O lol.

Celica GT as a stop gap, only had for a few months and made money from it. Bought as a non starter, nice and cheap. All it needed was a new battery and the brakes changed :) Bloody nice car, steep insurance though :o

Last but not least, my last bike. CB600F Hornet. New face lift model, so had the fireblade type exhaust. Sold just because I got bored, wasn't as comfortable as my old bikes only difference I got wherever I was going quicker, a lot quicker lol

Errr.... *scratches head*

1st car - Skoda Estelle - Biggest pile of shite I've ever been convinced to buy, but it did prompt me to adopt the policy of never accepting advice on what car to buy from my brother.
Morris Minor
Sherpa minibus
Renault 19
Rover Sterling (lovely, 2.5 V6 automatic, lazy man's car, suited me)
Ford Escort
Honda Civic Aerodeck (Pearl Black with all the upgrades, automatic)
Current car - Honda Accord CDTI Aerodeck - loving this motor

I like cars, I've just never been in a financial position to really push the boat out. I prefer to spend my cash on other things (Beer, video games etc.)

Vauxhall Astra is the only car in the house now :(

I sold my beloved Audi A8 4.2 a couple of months ago and not missed it enough to get something to replace it in truth.

96 plate Toyota Corolla GTI - This car was sooo much fun
98 plate Mondeo 1.8 - boring!
98 Plate Honda Civic Coupe - 1.5Vti - fun

AFTER MARRIAGE:
99 Plate Honda Civic coupe - 1.6 - meh

99 Plate Ford Fiesta - 1.3 - (needed this so missus could pass her test!- twas like a kill in the goolies :( )
05 Plate Audi A3 (Brand spanker :) ) but 3 door so had to go when kids came along

Nice one nick! - Even though I have absolutely NO requirement for one - I'd love to have one of them mitsubishi 'trucks'.
Something about them is just appealing to my male hormones. Tis a MAN's ride. 8-)

Shame my missus would smash it on her first trip shopping - she already complains about our passat being a barge :(

Ohhh how I miss thee and I want another now. The problem was, every module in it was going wrong and each part was a flat out £700 and £700 to fit and it was a money pit :(

Just picked up my new Wheels at BMW Welt in Munich and drove it down to Italy. Love the car. Its a Diesel with more torque than an M4 and sounds like a growling tiger(thus more throaty than the petrol version) :D . Estoril Blue II with red interior. Now where is the free speed-limit roads in Italy! NO need to overclock it hehe.

Nick, I love the L200's and really wish I could have one. My uncle used to have one and it was stunning both visually and to drive :) love it!

I currently drive a Ford Mondeo 2.5T, all stock currently but I plan a re-map once the warranty has expired
