    Hehe I'd rather not say

    But yeah racing will always be enjoyable :yep: And electric cars will probably offer higher levels of performance so it won't all be bad
    Aw no! I'm super curious now!

    It sure will be!
    Well there's that electric Mercedes SLS they had on Top Gear. It was quicker than the petrol version.
    There will just a lack of noise

    And yes, we are in agreement.

    I used to be a massive jdm fan. Currently I'm really into euro and particularly the UKDM. I've come to realise that as a first time driver insurers wont insure me on anything decent with a Honda badge.(About £4200 fully comp on a bog standard 1.5 civic) I absolutely love minis though (hence my name ). Love the classic minis, new minis the whole lot.

    My JDM list used to be-
    Honda integra type r
    Honda NSX
    Honda prelude
    Toyota Supra mk2 onwards
    Toyota Celica GT4
    Toyota Sera (factory gullwing doors)
    Nissan skyline r32- gtr 35
    Nissan Silvia (240sx) - s13-s15
    Nissan march super turbo (turbo charged and supercharged small kei car)
    I love kei cars, Daihatsu cuores, Suzuki cappuccino, Honda S800, Honda beat
    Subarbus for being ever practical
    Mitsubishi evo 4- evo9
    Mazda rx8 (fast to drive but you don't really feel it- used to get about 17mpg when we had it)
    Mazda rx9

    More than anything , i'd love to really start working on my cars. My current mini is a first gen car and its about £800 to insure fully comp, its unbelievable how cheap these things are to insure.

    What are you currently driving? What jdm cars you into?
    Ah ok then, it's my current obsession.
    Ah okay then. There are many interesting cars in those markets!
    No I discovered that too! It sucks doesn't it!
    It does get cheaper for your second year though! Mine halved!
    The classic Minis are awesome! I'm not so keen on the newer ones tbh, but they are great cars!

    Ah excellent! That's an awesome list!!
    Now I shall wrote one:

    Honda Integra Type R
    Honda Civic Type R (mk1-2 of the Type R)
    All Nissan Skylines
    Datsun 240Z
    Nissan 300 ZX
    Toyota AE86
    Toyota Supra. (Mk3)
    Mazda RX7 ( My favourite car)
    Mazda Miata (all generations)
    Mazda Eunos Cosmo
    Mazda RX8
    All Subaru Imprezas
    All Mitsubishi Lancer Evos
    Nissan Silvia (s13-15)

    Your list is pretty damn cool!!

    Ah that would be awesome!! You should defo start doing that!
    Whoa that is cheap! Wow!

    I'm currently driving a 1.2L Fiat Grande Punto (don't laugh haha). Looking at getting a mx5 as a second car, not sure which one though.

    I've never ridden a bike and my parents won't let me. I need to move out before I can do that unfortunately! I really want to though!

    Trust me I used to have a fiesta before the mini, they're great cars. I used to think the new mini was a girls fashion accessory but drive one and you'll understand. They stick to the road and they're really quite powerful for what they are. I got the bog standard One and that thing beats most cars off the line because its so torquey down low. I never have to change gears on hills etc. I mean not that I would speed but I'm told that at 100mph the revs are just over 4000 for a 1.6 engine that's remarkable, and i have no doubts in my mind that the same engine with the super charger in the S can reach 150 easily since the redline is at 7000+

    As for mx5s they rot. They are rust buckets so if you buy one make sure you have it inspected first. The sills and wheel arches go quite badly and the roofs need attention.

    I thought so. We sure are!

    Have you seen what they've done in F1 over the last couple of years?

    Ah kexcellent! Valeting is very enjoyable!
    It does seem like a nice MPV! Can't go wrong with Toyota tbh.

    Very nice choice! (I saw one a couple days ago). Those are all very true! Plus it's not too expensive either (for a sports car I mean).

    Very practical car! Very reliable too!

    Ah nice one! Are you confident?
    I wish you the best of luck!

    Ah fair enough then.
    One word describes what they've done: Dominated!
    They've dominated F1!
    Pretty impressive really!

    Ohhh okay! Thought you were referring to rule changes and what not.

    But yes, they've really hit their stride and not deviated since!

    I learned in a Fiesta. I like the old Mini but it's more the styling of the new ones that puts me off.
    Yeah I thought that too. So many girls have them.
    Ah that must feel nice then?!
    Gotta love that torque! It's non existant in my car haha!
    That must be super useful too!
    Hehe That is actually rather impressive! You'd expect it to be way over that!
    Yeah I would imagine so! Gotta love superchargers too! That whine is awesome!

    Yeah I've seen people who've bought them and then realized that it's made of rust!
    I shall get it fully checked before I buy it.
    Is that a problem with them all or was it just MK1's which were prone to rust?

    Thanks mate.

    Ah I see, no one knows what's going on with the damn rule changes!

    That's very true! They're being caught now though!
    They're feeling the pressure!

    Very nice indeed!

    That's good to hear!
    Ah yeah that's understandable! The waits are always so long!
    Ah well, at least you won't do them again!
    No worries!
