ANPR! Not a camera; a motor!

Post by Pondrew » Thu May 25, 2023 8:50 pm

Andy's New Pimped Ride!
Put a deposit down on the "ultimate chav-mobile" (according to my lovely wife) today. I have been very patient and waited for the right one to come along. Yesterday it did so I jumped at it.
2019 FK8, one owner, 8,000 miles with FHSH and a service plan so two more services free. Immaculate car, just how I like them.
My daughter's 17 year old boyfriend thinks I am the coolest dad in the world! :lol: :lol:

All good things come to those who wait. I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

F31 320i. Good car.
E89 20i Now fully dried
Z3 'free litre'. Project and a half. Complicated!
Mazda3 sold
Tatty old R56 Mini Cooper. Money pit!

    Dear oh dear.
    Well, it's obligatory to be wearing one of these at any time when you're behind the wheel of that family car on steroids:

    Yes and no!
    That is purely coincidence though. I am a pretty cool dad (only if you are a 17 year old boy admittedly)! :lol:

    The looks are not important. The car is universally accepted as one of the best cars to drive, not just hot hatch, in modern times. It weighs less than the Z4!

    You were supposed to say "but ETTO" to be polite, John. :D
    Luckily, as you well know, I am not one who cares about 'niceties', so fair point. :thumbsup:

    Nice car mate, a great choice for 'chav-mobile'. Just don't start dressing in a tracksuit looking like Tim Westwood :rofl:

    on a serious note, white honda sports cars have always looked amazing to me. My brother still has his forever car in a white s2000, and there's no way he'll part ways with it. I hope you enjoy it :thumbsup:

    RUN DMC Stormtrooper Spec. I'm not sure why, but I quite like that. Think its the balls out approach of Honda on these.

    The thing that I don't like are the three trumpet tailpipes - just think they look fussy - and I'm aware the entire car is quite extreme - but you don't see them when driving which I'm sure is an event in these. Have fun :driving:

    Indeed! The Japs have never been afraid to go all out with their design. The 'normal' FK8 is quite different to other mainstream cars IMO.

    I used to own a Mitsubishi Evo over 20 years ago. That was a brilliant car and have missed it ever since. Hopefully this can replicate those days a bit! :thumbsup:
