    Guess I better introduce the new car then eh?

    Got rid of the 220 because this little beauty came up. For the money, I'd have been stupid to miss out on it.

    From the front

    And the rear

    She was completely standard bar a backbox, so I swapped a few bits off the 220 including the alloys.

    A few weeks later, I picked up a complete set of G-Max springs and shocks and fitted them over a weekend.

    Sitting nice on the lowered springs

    And again...

    I also replaced a few of the worn suspension bushes with polybushes (will do the whole car eventually) and fitted a front and rear strut brace. It's actually quite a tidy handling car!

    Had it on the rollers in May too, where she produced a very healthy 206bhp.

    tidy motor Andy, almost exactly the same bhp as mine too (got mine chipped by Revo last year, to give it an extra ~ 55bhp).

    I thought only the Coupes were turbocharged, or is this a custom job?

    What car do you have Danny? I seem to remember it being an Alfa?

    The Coupe is the most well known of the Rover Turbo's but they also released the 220 GTi/GSi Turbo in 3 door hatch form (like my old one) and the 420 GSi Turbo, of which only 250 were produced.

    Being the lesser known Rover Turbo, it makes for some interesting expressions from people in other cars who think they can "have you", lol.

    Only paid 500 for the car and I don't have any intentions to sell it (no point really, I want to mod it and won't get the money back from my mods) so will keep it for a few years by which time it should be pushing out around 280bhp. I'll then either keep it as it is, or strip it and turn it into a track car.

    The only thing that gives the car away is a tiny little 'Turbo' badge on the bootlid. I'm still in two mines whether to rip this off.

    I bought an A3 1.8 Turbo a couple of years ago. It was quick but not quite as quick as I wanted, so I got it remapped from 150bhp to approx. 207bhp.

    I quite like the 'wolf in sheep's clothing' thing too. I gave a guy in a Civic Type R a nasty surprise off the lights recently

    You got a bargain there anyway fella.

    P.S. 280bhp through the front wheels could be interesting, some sort of traction control unit might be in order there

    Torque steer can be very bad in front wheel drive cars with that kind of HP from what I have seen. Traction control is a must in those cases.

    Just decided to open this thread for the first time, and after seeing the rants about BMW drivers, I guess I'll add that I drive a 2004 BMW 325i

    2003 Infinity M45. 340Hp 4.5L V8. 0-60 in -6. The reviews are always mixed on my car, but there's only about 9200 ever sold in the states so it's always a unique vehicle on the road.

    It's big, heavy and a total sleeper. Has voice activation, NAV, Dual Climate control, heated seats

    ...oh and Air Conditioned seats too. Nice for those hot summers.

    Looks just like this one

    The car is parked for a couple of weeks. Current motorcyle is a 90 FZR 1000, soon to be sold. Too heavy for me.
