Pete's next car thread, looking for suggestions


Pete

Recommended Posts

Right, as some of you know the Mondy is pretty FUBAR'd and with no response to my follow up email to the warranty people, I'm on the hunt! The plan is to chop it in and top that up to c.£5k with my tax rebate. I was toying with the idea of fixing it, at least I'd know it was running perfectly, but in all honesty I've been bored with the car for a while now so that wouldn't last too long.

 

Not too bothered about derv's anymore as for the small amount of mileage I do, I may as well get something nice. So far I've looked at ST170's and Civic Type-R's. Would appreciate any feedback on these and any other suggestions :thumb:

Will check AutoTrader for 5er's in my price range :thumb: As for the Supra Mike, I really cant see myself in something that modded these days :unsure: I'm 28 lol

 

as said, that's just an example of one that I know of and as just sold

 

plenty of standard ones around in the same price range. Good-looking car, solid 3.0 inline 6, good spec for the money
