    Prelude Paintjob

    It's a 4th gen Lude in green, and when I got it it had a fair few body imperfections, in the form of scratches and mini dents. I'm thinking of repainting it electric blue with a black bonnet and spoiler. What do ya think?

    How many gears does a car need

    I've got a 4 speed auto box in mine and it's not as bad as i thought it'd be on the motorway. Could do with a 5th though definately, maybe even a 6th. Hell let's go the whole hog and chuck in a 7th lol. Would be nice to cruise at 90 under 2k revs.

    Supercharger or turbo

    Forgive my naivity, but what do you mean when you talk about headers? I know i read about them, but can't for the life of me remember what they are lol.

    93 2.3 Prelude auto.

    Well i bought it, and at £300 with only some minor minor body damage (a few little scratches and one little dent and nearly no rust at all) a few minor wiring issues and nothing wrong with the running parts, i can't really complain. My first decently tunable motor. I quite like the auto box to...

    93 2.3 Prelude auto.

    Right, i'm buying one of these and i want to know what i can do with it. Someone told me i can make it into a vtec with not too much work. I've taken this with a pinch of salt, but i want to know if it was possible. Thanks.

    Experiences of accidents

    Lost control of my old Rover 45 doing 40. Front wheels lost grip and the front end drifted right. Being a n00b driver I've gone full lock left trying to straighten the car up. All of a sudden the car grabbed grip, span round left, went backward over an island and into a lampost. Only had third...

    Flashers beware

    When letting someone go at a junction i tend to step out of the car and ACTUALLY flash them. It's good fun, i recommend you all try it.

    New scale for Torque

    I'm voting for how long the wheels spin when you dump the clutch from standing, lol. Could also measure SSFPDALC (*split seconds from pedal down at light change). C/a (Clutches per annum). When it comes to torque with tools, I think expletive per minute should do the trick. And why all the love...

    Fuel Filter

    Been trying to change the fuel filter on my car, but the nuts around it are rusted shut. I'm going to keep spraying it with WD40 over the next few days and try again in a few days, but has anyone else had this problem? How did you solve it?

    It's not really worth the time. I'm losing so much faith in this car idea. I'm saving money while I decide what to do. think I'm going to go for a BMW 318. At least I can get parts for that, not to mention rear wheel drive.

    Where to start when a car wont start

    Don't get me started on the AA. Apparantly five call outs from a recovery service that costs an absolute bomb entitles them to say that I have "exceeded my yearly limit" on callouts and that I now have to pay a £93 surcharge every time I call them out for the remainder of my time with them. I...

    What would you spend £3000 on

    =[ I'm relatively new to all this, lol, just taking a stab at it. I like the 3 series and I can pick one up for under a grand, so can't be bad with a 3k budget.

    What would you spend £3000 on

    BMW 318i, full breathing kit, turbo conversion and a remap. Easy peasy 300bhp.

    Are you silent or chatty when driving

    Depends on my mood. On motorway drives I like to keep talking so I don't start to feel drowsy, hence my huge phone bill when i do long drives alone, lol.

    Colouring stock alloys

    My mates getting his 55 2.0 Passat TDi Sport 17" stock rims done white by them, so I might wait and see the results. If they're any good I intend to thoroughly throw a few handfulls of cash at them. I'm trying to find a good bodykit shop round here. It's annoying the crap out of my as google...

    New government (lower) speed limit plans?

    Maybe Jay Walking laws should be bought in against Pedestrians, who feel it is their god given right to walk out across the road, irregardless of what's coming, expecting you to stop, despite the fact that us, the drivers, are paying all the tax for the concrete they are treading on. If...

    Colouring stock alloys

    Anyone know how I would have to prep the alloys if I were interested in coloring them? Want to do it DIY as opposed to getting it done pro. Thanks.

    My exhaust fell off tody =D

    Yup yup. Going to be giving the car a full once over on my next day off to make sure everything is correctly attached so I don't get and mishaps again.

    My exhaust fell off tody =D

    So I was driving from my friends house when I heard the exhaust start scraping. As I was looking for somewhere to stop I heard a thunk and one glance in the rear view made me chuckle as I saw my exhaust spinning. The rubber mount had split and caused it to just drop off. Luckily it came off at a...

    Teaching my Bro to drive properly

    I've only just been taught the error of my ways in this respect. Since found out that over 3500 my car sounds absolutely beastly! Can't wait to get a better exhaust manifold and back box, sports cat and giant muffler tip =]

    First attempt at major body mod.

    So I have a Daewoo Espero. It's a piece of crap, but I'm using it to learn on. Where it' been debadged at the front there's some minor damage, and behind this section sits the Radiator. I'm looking to cut a section of this metal ouit and put in a grill to increase airflow into the engine bay and...

    The only words I could use to describe what I'm feeling are against the terms of service.

    Police mobile speed check...

    Surely if you slam on the brakes and claim there was a cat, they're going to slam into the rear of you, insurance wise it's automatically their fault, they get proven to have been driving too close to you, they look like idiots and you get a nice big payout from the Police insurance =] That's...

    Has anyone had any experience with this company? I've sent off for a quote on a basic remap and a suspension kit. Was just wondering if anyone had any experience with them, and anything to say about them, either positive or negative?

    What car should i buy?

    :amazed::D I knew something! Yay! lol. So back to the topic of the thread, does this Daewoo sound like a good idea? Can't really go wrong for 150 quid right?

    What car should i buy?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but my friend used to own an RX8 and I'm 99% sure it's 650cc per rotor, making a total of a 1.3 engine.

    Police mobile speed check...

    It seems they try and deliberately make you drive worse, and I can't understand why, short of them getting commission for giving people tickets, but then I don't understand why I got let off with what I did. Thing is though, if you've written signs saying do not stop and repeatedly told the...
