    Snapped couple of quick pics. It's very difficult colour to capture. Most pictures you will see will be way too blue. There is significant greenish tint to it.

    Hm, I don’t usually name my cars. Except my CRX, that was a “dumpling”. Doesn’t translate to English very well, in Czech it’s also used as a nickname for something small and cute.

    I guess the nickname would fit here as well.

    The M2 looks shorter than it is because it’s so wide. The length is pretty much identical to the e46.

    And the sound, OMG the sound it makes. The optional M Performance exhaust is worth every penny (350000 pennies).

    LOL guys, stop trying to name my car. It really doesn’t need a name.

    Here is a picture with the wagon, you can see how the phone camera messes up the colour.

    I'm fortunate to have a company car (Subaru Outback 2018 Diesel) so that allows me the freedom to own something a little left field.

    After many years of driving family stationwagons I finally obtained the means for something nice. The real goal - a 993 series porsche - was out of reach so I settled for this.
    That sounds frustrated but I am in no way. This is such a great little car with fantastic design lines, and the technical setup is just great. Still can't believe it. I love it!

    Welp, after selling my E39 back during the summer I was on the lookout for something new as I just don't feel right owning "just" two cars :D

    Finally, 3 weeks ago I found this little fella for sale for a great price in Germany:

    1.jpg 7.jpg

    Now some of you probably now think I've completely lost it buying an old french tin can (which it really is... :odd:), but bear with me here...

    It's a 2000 Clio B RS Phase 1, sporting a 2.0L engine with 169 bhp. It's light, it's got a short wheelbase so it's nimble and it goes like hell. Plus it's got a sports exhaust system and the sound is absolutely fantastic :eek::drool:

    I've got quite specific plans for it after I register it properly here in Austria. More to come in the near future :mischievous:

    @Espial that looks totally rad! Don't let @PASM see that or he might steal it from you for his new ring toy :lol:

    That's a lovely looking ph1. Check out Pure Motorsport if you fancy lightening your wallet on upgrades!

    I've got a ph2 182 and it's a lift off oversteering hoot!

    Coilovers, 190hp, and then a quaife diff going in over winter. They're great track cars.

    Thanks for the tip @_r_p_m_ The things they have do look nice... :drool: Those prices tho :eek:
    Your Clio looks good too :dopey:

    First of all I'm thinking about Bilstein B14 coilovers, anti-roll bars, polyurethane suspension bushings and a set of 15" OZ Ultraleggeras with Yokohama semi-slick tires. Later on I'm looking at a new set of sports brake discs and pads. Sadly the regulations in the race series don't permit any changes to the engine and drivetrain apart from the air filter, clutch and exhaust system. Also the regulations state the car still needs to be street legal with the modifications which can a problem due to ridiculously strict vehicle examinations here in Austria. :rolleyes:

    They're just no fun at all! :irked:
