    Well I was driving this....

    [​IMG]

    But in an effort to save money to accumulate money, in ended up with this.....

    [​IMG]

    It's a 2.5 and still a turbo, 230 bhp i think.... but not the same....
    But it does have seven seats, so I can go from 2 cars to 1.....
    And it can embarrass alot of other cars if I get my changes all perfect....

    Anyway I have some more important shit to pay for, for a few years....
    Then I'm importing a 99 Impreza type r from Japan..... and spending alot on it.....

    Edit:- I don't own that Impreza anymore, and it has no links with my current address... otherwise I would have blurred the plate, as I suggest anyone should probably do..

    I rather enjoy my 2015 Renault Clio RS. Her name is Francine & she makes me smile every time I drive her especially when we hit twisties :brow:. Curves in the right places & a big butt appeals but the way her chassis feels is excellent for a daily driver.

    Francine is not perfect but a new intercooler, exhaust, springs, tume & maybe some new discs are significantly cheaper than a new car. I just put 12 months registration & insurance on her so I will keep her for at least six months but a supercharged V8 has a certain allure.

    Awesome dude! i've always loved the little clio's.
    Especially the sound of the 2008 model :drool:

    Hot hatches are in general such nice cars.

    Keeping it real I wish I had saved $15K & got a Clio III 200. The F4RT is a bulletproof engine provided it is maintained. I know one that has been significantly tracked still going strong with 300,000 hard km driven. Then again a Turbo F4RT is good enough to sling a Megane round the Ring in 7.54 which puts it in with the big boys for $50k or so.

    Yeah it would not work properly so a quick edit was in order.

    Anyways if you skip it to .45 that is pretty much how my car is sounding right now :ninja:.

    Nice ride dude, just picked up a brand new 1500 outdoorsman in silver (crewcab) with the black 20" rims. Holy shit what an upgrade over my hyundai elantra! lol But the fuel economy is more than twice as bad! lol Worth it!

    Past rides:
    Hyundai Elantra GLS (170hp 6spd)
    Hyundai Genesis 6 spd (turbo modded 275hp)
    Mazda MX6 (88 5 spd and a 93 atx)

    LOVE sports cars, and the Genny had tonnes of room, but i'm 6'3 and 41yo now and require the space and comfort of a truck now! Since it's the HEMI, it blows most sporty cars on the road anyway. Also got the bench seat up front for extracurricular activities! Giggity!

    This is my favourite clio of all time....
    Williams...

    It's all about the older cars for me...

    But I am a fan of a hot hatch with a good chassis....
    Who knew front wheel drive could be so much fun...

    Guess I'll post a couple of pics of my toy, a 2015 Corvette Stingray Z51 Convertible.

    I added the Z06 grounds effects after I bought the car.

    Nothing like 460 horsepower and 460 foot pounds of torque.

    We have a bunch of vehicles:
    Subaru Crosstrek with 2" lift for driving offroad
    1969 VW Transporter (bus) for hauling kayaks, Christmas trees, and other stuff
    Toyota Matrix (something like 250,000+ miles and still chugging along)
    Plated Yamaha YSR 50

    Will likely add something else to the stable this year.

    Nothing that exciting, and it need a lot of work to be like-new again...it'll never be restored to its glory days.

    This was before painting the inside which is only halfway done, primarily to prevent further rust/rot/cancer.
