Yeah still have the Integra. haven't seen anything I like that looks like more fun. Supercharged DC5, RX-7 FDS3 and high powered 180SX still on my list though.

What are you driving now then?

Nice one :D ATR Recaro's are some of the comfiest I have ever sat in. It's a brilliant choice for a family car.

The guy at work has those baby Recaro's for his twins, expensive but ace! Only the best for your kids ;)

Those wheels look in spanking condition.

Yeah S2000 is a good choice too, made the missus test drive one the other month as a possible car for me to buy and her to insure and drive as a daily so I get to play in one when I like, nearly there in convincing her.

Get a build thread up :thumbsup:

Cheers :thumbsup: I think its a good choice but the wife hates driving it and prefers her 307HDI...which is perfectly fine with me :)

I must admit the recaro baby seat is a little over priced but I always wanted a matching baby recaro if I ever had a son...so the wife bought it for me as a present :)

The only thing I don't like on the S2000 is the standard wheels, they look lost in the arches!

Thank you for the comment on the wheels :D I took ages refurbing them and was very pleased with the results!

I am a bit of a picture whore so have kept all of my pictures from day one so i will make a build thread this weekend!

i'm getting on fine, on my forth fiesta since the si. where was it rotten? all the back end pretty much made a fiberglass innerwheel arch when the old one fell out on the ns/r. Still we had a pretty good drive back from south wales in her and it actually drove quite well.
