    FB, FC or FD?I also like the S2000. Underrated car that has great potential. Already holding around 240HP? Also considering that it's smaller than the average cars, it's performance must be staggering!
    FD!
    The S2K is just brilliant!
    Agreed! Yeah it's around that figure! Pretty impressive for a car of its size really!
    It'd be mad!!! It sounds great too!

    I also prefer the FD, along with one of RE Amemiya's bodykit on and with RPF1's And yeah, and the prices for S2000's are pretty cheap. Think you could get them around 6K or above?

    anyone else interested in car detailing? waxing polishing etc

    i tried to get into it, i bought simoniz hard wax from tesco which is meant to be great only that i didnt know it takes like 5 days to apply lol

    i bought ultimate compound (which is meant to be a modern t cut) to remove my cars swirls but it didnt do much at all

    so now im just gonna give it the regular wash and demon shine spritz since i dont have time. I got a pot of dodo juice car wax which is meant to be great and easy to apply and im also planning to use the ultimate compound again when i do have a day to spare.

    Yup I sure am!

    Detailing is an art and a very satisfying one at that too!
    It takes me around 4-5 hours to fully detail my car (wash, dry, clay, Polish, wax, touch up).
    I love it!

    Ultimate compound will only work with a rotary polisher and cutting pad. Otherwise it's useless to you.

    Meguiars are probably the best detailing brand (well actually AmmoNYC is but that's American only).
    I personally use AutoGlym as I got a load of heir products for free!

    Am I the only one that thinks new BMWs are ugly af? Apart from the X5 and 5 series. I feel the rest of the range look terrible.
    Honestly love the previous generation of BMWs. I'm one of the few that believes Bangle's designs really were just ahead of their generation. Love all the cars from the previous gen, though the front of the 1 series does look a little miserable

    (Original post by Themini)
    E60 models are beautiful. My dad still has his car and even though its just ticked over 130000 he wont upgrade. He just doesn't like the new BMW shapes.
    Yup, any 5 series from that era with an M sport kit just looks amazing.

    (Original post by dhr90)
    Anyone else not understand why BMW still have that mpg dial instead of putting it on an lcd readout? It just looks a bit dated now.
    (Original post by Themini)
    The newer generation uses LCD bars and the 7 series has always used them 02- onwards. I personally think its a timeless classic and I like it..just like their standard white and black dials. Good old vacuum gauge. Lol each to his own I guess.
    Personally agree with the second poster. The dial was just snazzy and I prefer having it there over an LCD readout.

    Would agree with that re the previous 5 series, the current one is much more subdued, but has its presence due to its size.

    Really like the interior or Range Rovers these days, far nice than the Q7 etc.

    I generally dislike changes in design but gradually accept them and begin to like them. It's worth bearing in mind that cars have to be designed to look good in five years' time, not today. I hated the pre-LCI 1 series F20 when it was first released but after the LCI was released, I began to love the pre-LCI.

    I think the current 5 series looks rather confident and sophisticated but I'm not happy about the front of the 3 series, and even more bothered about the fact that it wasn't fixed with the LCI. Headlight clusters flowing into the grills with the grills extending outwards just doesn't work imo.

    Range Rovers have brilliant interiors, though I've never sat in one and doubt I will for quite a while. The new Q7 has an interesting modern interior but I still don't know if I've rid myself of my idea that anything made by the VW group is too dreary to think about, which I formulated based on their cars up until very recently.
