Hi all,

since I'm new here, this seemed like as good a place as any to start...

1999 Honda Civic VTi 'Jordan' (EK4)
1992 Honda CRX VTEC (EE8)
2000 Honda Civic Type R (EK9)
1992 Honda CRX VTEC (EE8)
1992 Honda Civic SiR II (EG6)
1996 BMW 328i Sport Coupe (E36)
2003 BMW M3 (E46)
2010 Honda Civic Type R (FN2?)
2000 VW Golf GTI 1.8 20v Turbo (MKIV)
2012 VW Polo R-Line
2011 VW Polo 1.4 SE
2016 VW Polo GTI

Highlights are plentiful if I do say so myself; the E36 and the MKIV Golf were two of the cheapest, most comfortable and easy-to-live-with cars I've ever owned, and the EK9 and E46 were satisfactorily bonkers at the other end of the spectrum.

I'm still waiting for that last one to arrive... We only went down to the dealership to discuss paying off the balance of the finance and keeping our R-Line as we loved it so much, but ended up walking out having ordered the GTI :roll: :lol:

Hopefully only another week and a half or so to go...! :mrgreen:

Oh one of my favourite cars, one used to drive past me when I was walking to the bus stop for school. My fella bought one I was over the moon - he sold it on my birthday :( while my hand was in plaster so I couldn't even take it for a goodbye drive :( this was 10 years ago and I still hold it against him a bit lol.

ST I think, so the Polo was in for APR Stage I yesterday and hopefully will get done in the next couple of weeks when they unlock the newest software version.

Not many mods to be honest. Pipercross Viper induction kit, HID's and LEDs, Sprayed the grills and badges gloss black, half leather interior, Irmscher Backbox, stripped the rear out for a while but it was too noisy, probably other things just can't remember.

It still looks amazing! I really wanted the LED headlights for mine but they had one without on the docks which I went for and retrofitted the Xenons :( I'm trying to find a gap in the weather to reapply G5 to my windscreen and try out Exo!

I love the Anni and you're 6n2 GTI both looked really well cared for, I don't know what it is but I have a weird affection for my first Polo (Betty) - I have a couple of plans for her like restoring the body work (usual VW rusted wings) and a couple of sensible engine mods :mrgreen:
