    Tagging people who I think will like the images posted above,
    There's around £2M worth of cars there (not including the race cars)!

    Tag others if you can think of any
    My god, these are some real beauties there. Definitely put a grin on my face. I hope to go to car meets in the near future. I'm 16 atm and there isn't any from where I'm at haha.

    My favourite ones are the M4, RS6 Avant, GTR and the Evo!Is there a Japfest 3 being organised this year? I saw a glimpse of Japfest 2 through top gear and did it turn me on haha! And drive when I'm 17? I'm broke af lmao. Going to focus more on my A-levels and studies until I have decent amount of money to own and run a car. Quite a few kids at my age are already joy driving with them crappy corsas rofl.

    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!
    I detailed my car completely last week. It took 5 hours for me, especially seeing as my first time so I took my time learning the process. It was a long arduous task and quite boring but the satisfaction afterwards really makes up for it.

    I decided I'm gonna leave the UC alone until I get a cutting machine. However I used BILT HAMBER clay, super resin polish, and dodo juice orange crush wax. The results were superb at the end, great beading.

    Now I like that! Oh yeah I forgot about the GTR *facepalm*
    Not sure tbh, I don't keep up on these things currently.
    Yup I saw that too! Looked awesome!
    Oh right I see, well that sucks!
    Yeah that's probably a wize idea tbh! Best to get good results!
    Ugh damn Corsas! They should all be burned!
    I've got a Fiat Grande Punto as a first car, it's rather good but understeers like a mother****er (but I think that's the tires more than anything).
    Looking to get an RX8 as a second car next May!

    Nice one! Whoa that's rather long but not too bad to be fair.
    Yeah that's fair enough then! We've all got to start somewhere!
    Oh well I find it enjoyable to do tbh! Very satisfying and then even more satisfying once it's done!

    Yeah that's the best thing to do!
    Excellent! Just a word of advice, it's generally better to use one brand at a time but it's not that bad if you use different ones!
    The beading is awesome! Esp when it rains! You can tell the difference between waxed and non waxed cars!

    Ah yes that's true! Well spotted! They were opposite the F3 cars so I was paying more attention to them on the day haha!

    Haha there a few of them too! I've seen loads recently! Hadn't seen any for years and then I saw 5 in a week! And then loads yesterday!

    Mostly! The engine has been tuned up a bit too! Well I don't think it is! There's lots of overtaking in it! They've barely got any aero!
    F1 is the pinnacle of boring nowadays tbh!
    Indycar is still where it's at!
    I'd likely have done the same, not every day you walk past a fleet of F3 cars!

    Can't beat the rumble of a TVR.

    I'm talking about the Formula Ford supporting the BTCC package. Which is very exciting, although driving standards at Snetterton needed looking at, some appalling moves.

    Yeah that's very true! They're great to look at!
    It'd be odd if you went out and saw a load in a random car park haha! Brilliant though!

    Hmm, I love a quad rotor tbh but hey we all have our preferences!

    Yeah so am I!
    That was a lucky cameraman! But he kept filming though! Fearless!
    TOCA have now introduced race bans for poor driving after the events of Snetterton!
    Was quite disappointed tbh, got two shortened races with massive delays in them!

    It's funny how police don't even notice these people haha, and an RX8? that's a nice upgrade man. They are cheap too but insurance are as equivalent to an E43 M3, correct me if I'm wrong? Also is it the 231?

    I'm in a village outside of Bury and my Dad was supposedly taking me but he had to work instead
    I was gutted, I just felt sorry for myself and watched it on ITV.

    That's true haha!
    Yup! Thanks man!
    They sure are, no you are correct. But it costs £1500 to insure me with 1 years NCB. So 2 years will drop it to around £1000 and I'm gonna quite happily pay that to get an RX8
    It sure is! The 190 is more expensive to insure for some strange reason! So may as well get the faster one haha!

    That's a decent price to pay and run. i envy you! RX8 are really underrated. They have a lot of potential and they do look attractive. Given that, you're getting the 231, the engine displacement is higher right? Speaking of the RX8, I'm sure you're aware of the BadBul

    It sure is! I was rather suprised!
    Hehe! You'll get one one day!
    They really are, it sucks that they're underrated but there's not a lot we can do tbh.
    Agreed! Plus I love the rotary engine so win win haha!
    I think the displacement is the same, just that the 230 redlines higher (9500rpm compared to 7500 on the 190).
    Oh I sure am! Mad Mike Whiddett is one of my fav racing drivers! 812bhp 20b triple rotor, with s turbo! Amazing! Although MADBUL is my fav car ever! That this is awesome!!

    They sound absolutely orgasmic at times, but I've never been able to adjust to how odd the shapes and looks of them can be!Anyone local to/studying in Birmingham and knows of where car meets are held? I've been at uni for 2 years but never met another petrolhead

    You're going to have to look after the rotary engine like it's your baby
    :ahee: . Hopefully in the near future I'll be able to own a decent car. S2000 I'm thinking of haha. My favorite driver has to be Keiichi Tsuchiya. I mean come on! haha. I've checked up and the 231 is a 2.6 litre generally. Have you also played Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3?

    True, but i dont mind doing that!
    The sound is just awesome!

    Im sure you will be able to! Theres plenty of decent jdm cars out there and for a low cost too tbh (some of them anyway)
    Ah yes! Thats a great choice! Im sure youll get one soon!

    Shamefull i didnt know who he was. So i Googled him and he seems totally awesome! What a man he is! I can see why hes your fav!!

    Correct. Then you go and suprise people by telling them youve got 230bhp from your 1.3 haha! Because its classed as a 1.3 but realistically its a 2.6!

    Im afraid not! Whats it like?
