    How about these:

    The "are we meant to be impressed" award for the youngest members with the longest list of cars owned in their signature?

    An award for the longest list of worthless mods in a signature?

    The "what's that smell" award for the most outlandish power claim?

    The "Timex" award for the most unrealistic 0-60 or 1/4 mile time claimed in a signature?

    The "Ministry of miss-information" award to the one who posted the most wrong information?

    An "English language for Dummies" book for those lacking in the basic form of the English language, including punctuation, grammar and use of 'txt talk'.

    The "Musical" award for the poster who blows his own trumpet loudest?

    A free wheelbarrow for the poster who spits the dummy the most (to help him/her carry their pet-lip about)

    The "Cotton wool" award for those who get insulted and upset about anything and everything?

    The "Uber-chav" award for the person with the worst styling mod?

    The "Internet expert" award for the person who posts the most information as gospel, but who's level of expertise extends to changing an air filter with the help from his mates!
    *Also qualifies for the "what's that smell" award for claiming 15BHP for fitting it - but you can only win one award, sorry!*


    And my favourite award:

    The "I really don't give a **** award" to the Moderator who manages to upset the most fragile people? (Me, obviously)

    I think you have that one in the bag !!!

    BTW ESS - that a C4 or a C2 you've got? A colleague just bought an 06 997 C4 in Basalt Black, so I've now had my first spin in a 911. Up until now, I just had to believe all the hype.

    What a machine - incredible amounts of grip from the 4WD and the huge tyres. We were out on some rough B-roads in heavy rain and the thing just stuck. It really is built so, so well, and that NOISE! I was well impressed..... you must be loving it.

    Ahhhh........ one day...... :sob:

    Why thank you...I try! ;)


    C4S.
    Turbo spec suspension and brakes, wide body (a bit like it's owner!), turbo spec interior etc...
    But with GT2/3 style wheels, the factory Aerokit, factory Sports Suspension (Bilstein Sprint dampers, 20mm lower progressive springs, different ARBs, different geometry), factory Sports Exhaust...



    I was the same...
    Always thought they couldn't really be that good. Then drove one. And spent the next year working out how I was going to get one...

    It's by far the best car I've ever driven.
    Maybe not the best built, or with the best interior, or the fastest, or the most reliable...but for involvement...it's the shizzle.

    I don't care that it's deemed to be a penis extension by others...
    Or that most don't like yellow...

    I get the same buzz now from driving it as I did the first time I ever drove it. And that'll do for me.



    I am loving it...
    The 997s aren't as loud as the 996s with the Sports Exhaust...not sure if your colleague has the Sports Exhaust or not...but mine is uber loud!
    And not just loud...a perfect note. :hubbahubba:


    Go for it...
    You'll love it. :)

    ESS,

    In the picture of your car is that a black mk2 golf that your parked next to,

    i,ve seen some pictures from international and saw that your car was parked next to a black mk2 with an s3 engine ?

    its owned by a bloke in Elgin i think

    Not sure if it's a Mk2 or a Mk1.
    The stripes look Mk1 ish...

    Yeah, a black Mk2 with an S3 wngine, now on Porsche wheels and with Fox headlights.
    It's up for sale at the moment...


    That's the one...
    Matt from Elgin.
    He's a top bloke...he's been down at GTI International the last God knows how many years.

    That pic was taken in 2005 at a Star Performance Dyno Day (by Icy...not me...I can't take credit for shots like that!)...and Matt had the Golf down with him...so it could well be his car.

    You really do have quite a spec there !

    No, he's not got the sports exhaust, but it still sounds great!

    ...... then, in stark contrast, I have to go back and drive my weedy 2.0T lawn mower :huh: !

    I think an 'awards' thingy is not a bad idea,,, got to watch the eggshell ego's as Ess Three say's....... But what the hell, I'll get over it if I don't win!!

    A good way to do it would be for the mods to selet the catagories, then members can PM or post who they would nominate, then put all the 'nominations' in a Poll for an open vote.:)

    Sounds like a good idea, would be nice to hold a competition each month for the nicest cars on the site, the "people" elect whoever wishes to be in the voting camp. ukMKIVS hold this sort of competition each month
