  1. Well it certainly impresses me! Love having more go under the right foot and also has that irresistible burble. Fuel economy is obviously not as good but the fun I have on the back roads more than pays dividends. Might upgrade to an STi in the future when the power just isn't enough but more than content with it now
  2. Greetings to all! I was a member on here for about 5 years from 2006 onwards. I bought a basic 5 dr Mk 6 looking like this : http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/My%20Car/Escort5.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/My%20Car/Escort3.jpg Over the years I put some effort into it and it ended up looking like this : http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/My%20Car/IMG_1807.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/My%20Car/IMG_1809.jpg I eventually felt the need for a bit more oomph and got an Impreza : http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Uxbridge%20Auto%20Show%2018%20Jul%2010/IMG_2757.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Uxbridge%20Auto%20Show%2018%20Jul%2010/IMG_2764.jpg The escort was sold in March to a guy in Ruislip (near to where I worked) and saw it parked outside his house on numerous occasions. From about July onwards though, I didn't see it around So basically I'm posting this up to see if anyone has seen it around or even owns it now, pictures being a big bonus. Any help appreciated!
  3. I am definitely behind Kniterider here. I always put English wherever I can as my nationality but find it annoying when you get the online forms asking for your country and you are only given the choice of 'United Kingdom'
  4. I hope he has permanent scarring for that. Bull fighting should be banned - they provoke the bull before the fight by stabbing and spearing it, then send it into the ring to be stabbed again for the audience's sick pleasure and then kill it after the fight. I wish him a very slow recovery
  5. Gotta say that I loved the Powerflow on my old car. Noisy on acceleration (noisier if you were pushing it) but a lot quieter at constant speeds
  6. Really looking forward to this album. Saw them at Reading festival in the past and the atmosphere in the crowd was awesome!
  7. May I suggest Subaru Obsidian Black. Love it on my car
  8. I was gonna say, not all of us are beemer weiners. Some of us have gone further East!
  9. ...but only if you chnage the sideskirts for cabby ones
  10. Pics from today, with mate's ST170: http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_2021.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_2023.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_2025.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_2030.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_2031.jpg Rufio - There's no saying what i could get next, it may very well be a Mk1 RS! But I'm sure I have a boxer engine in my car, unless I have a Mazda! Jay - I will more than likely be going to JapFest and similar shows like JapShow etc Si - Already on Scoobynet now, browsing around the For Sale sections for what I might want. Already knew about the Blob eye tag, was looking for this car and ignoring any that contained 'bug eye' in the title! (not my favourite look )
  11. Si - cheers mate, very much appreciated. I'm sure there will a few things I will enquire about Marshy - PM'd
  12. Only thing I have done to it so far is the car mats! I want to get some mud flaps next, but moulded ones not silly big rally ones - seem quite hard to find at the moment. Can't see myself spending too much on it but may get some Prodrive alloys in anthracite, an exhaust system and maybe a splitter on the front. Si - I love it when it's clean, especially in the sun with the gold flecks in the paint! I definitely notice it The Escort was sold last week and the guy picked it up on Monday. Was sad to see it go, seeing as I had owned it for 3 1/2 years, but fortunately he lives just down the road so get to see it every now and then. Hopefully it stays in the same sort of nick, although his girlfriend may be learning in it...
  13. Cheers guys. I absolutely love it. It doesn't have the PPP (Prodrive Performance Package) on it like Si's did but it's still got the grunt. The engine is rated at 225BHP
  14. For the past few months I have been looking around for a new car. I was torn between a Focus RS and an Impreza STi (had a thread on it), but I eventually settled on the STi's younger brother, the WRX. I was really picky with what I wanted, especially one with under 50k on the clock and in black. Finally I found one: http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_1948.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_1949.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_1956.jpg Annoyingly, due to insurance, I couldn't drive it for about 3 weeks and i was itching to get in it! Excellent condition, 44k miles and goes like stink! Fully valeted and with brand new rear brakes from the dealer too! I also bid farewell to my old Escort on Monday , so took a few photos of them both together, plus had my parent's and brother's cars too: http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_1973.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_1975.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/IMG_1977.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_1988.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_1989.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_1998.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_1993.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_1991.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_2001.jpg http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z151/Richie_Si/Subaru%20Impreza%20WRX%20-%20the%20new%20car/Family%20Cars/IMG_2003.jpg Now time to visit the petrol station (again)...
  15. No but someone local to me in London so I get to see it every now and then, you know, keep an eye on her
