    First car on the road, the Mini! Still have it now:



    a few ****ters in between things whilst the Mini was off the road (oftne) Had a ZX 1.9D, and a 1.9TDI audi 80 estate

    then my first 8L A3, looked like this when i got it:



    then it looked like this:



    Got bored, so.....


    E36 3.0 M3 for a bit


    Couldn't afford to run it, so back to the black A3 again:



    Then decided I fancied another 8L, so that's where I am now

    Impreza RA

    I added a DCCD box with auto controller, fully nylon bushed, big brakes, Leda coilovers, simtek ECU with launch control and antilag etc. Ran approx 350 brake. Sold it as i was sick of buying new gearboxes, the RA runs a very close ratio box(115 flat out) not sure how the S3 will compare as I have yet to drive it, been sat in drive for 2 months waiting for me to fit a newfront subframe.

    I was no chav, the bmw was kept standard (14 inch bbs wheels and no tints in sight) and it was always amusing beating the barry boys in the mk1 golf, loved that car apart from the leaking windscreen

    Mine was a '94 Ibiza GTi 8v - bought in April 1997, downgraded to track car in April 2004 when I bought the S3, finally sent her for scrap in April after 14 years of ownership.
    A shot from the late 90's.


    And off to meet its maker a few weeks ago....
