Small update guys, and firstly I'd like to apologise for my blurry photos. It appears I shake uncontrollably at the moment, must be the lack of sleep!
I picked up my upper rear door trims yesterday from the Nissan Garage and the necessary clips so she should be looking her best when I get her back! I'm still waiting on my kudos grille at the moment but I'm hoping it will arrive any day now.…

Recently I've been a rubbish owner. My car has been covered in about a foot of snow, it hasn't been cleaned in months and i've not added any bits to her in ages.
I raided my stash-pile of parts and found some trick gauges that were donated to me by Carl - over a year ago. I also found a carbon facia that covered my heater controls - It was time that they got fitted.
I had to bin my double DIN Sony head unit in favour of a brand new Kenwood. It's January and the sales… Continue

It's not often I get a chance to get my hands dirty in the garage, so I was like a pig in poop when I popped over to the work shop of CMS (Carl's place).
The first job of the day was to remove a set of ported & polished heads from a blown Subaru block.
Removing the rocker cover allows access to the cams. I used a 10mm… Continue

Im sure some of you guys have some (old) posters of Japanese Imports, that are not on your walls. I asked Jimmy, the same question, and as always he answers with 'yes'. I would appreciate if someone else would send me their posters. Since I'm redecorating my room, I realized that there are no Japanese Imports on my wall, and Japanese Imports are my favorite cars. But I wouldn't mind a poster of any other Import or even muscle car. So if any of you have some extra posters that you don't need,… Continue

A big thanks to everyone who suffered the cold and wet again to meet up and have a chat.
It was great to also see a few new faces up at the ace and some really cool cars.
We had a great cruise up from the beaconsfield services despite carl not been able to see a thing due to giving his washer jets to a customer of his to get them out of trouble.
Cant wait till next month hope to see a few more new faces as the weather starts to warm up.

It's the first time since the snow has cleared, that I've had time to get to see Lola, the Subaru Impreza WRX.
She's suffered the effects of the snow and has some serious sticker damage - but still fired up first time. She needs a lot of TLC to get her track/road ready for the season ahead and who can forget, the Modball… Continue

Dr. Kay Segler, head of BMW’s M Division, told Dutch magazine Autovisie that BMW has sold every M3 GTS. In less than three months all available models have found their way to an owner somewhere around the globe. The only thing they have to do is wait… Continue

There is not really much we can say about this Murcielago inspired ATV. Produced by Japanese tuner, Liberty Walk, perhaps this is the ultimate car related toy? We are not entirely convinced so we will let you decide what you think…

Right as the GTR is going asap i decided i needed a cheap (er) toy to keep me from going insane! haha It started out with the idea of a £3k budget civic track car build but that is looking more and more like it is turning into a £5k or so build but hey we will see what happens as we go down the line!
Today i picked up my base engine for the build: A civic b16a2 1.6 vtec engine and ancillaries. Got it for £200 with a full engine and ancillaires/loom and a baffled sump… Continue

Right - I've had quite a busy couple of weeks! As some of you know my son Aidan was born on Januray 14th so I've been very busy catering to his needs! Although this doesn't mean progress on the R has ground to a halt. In my previous post I popped into my local Nissan garage and ordered my trim pieces which have arrived. I've just been to see the car and dropped them off;…

Owning your personal luxury sports car is a dream you may share with many people. The same can be said about affording one. But what is the easiest way to get one? Build your own dream car and use the family car as a basis.
That is exactly what a guy in Thailand did when he tried to transform a Opel Calibra into an Aston Martin DB9. You can see he tried to copy the lines of the supercar, but didn’t succeed really. Besides that, we were… Continue
