    Im a technician and i cant really afford to run a car, ive spent about £500 in parts for my mini in just under a year!
    So far ive replaced:
    front Pads
    Front subframe (hit some oil, hit a curb)
    Track Rod Ends
    Fuel pump
    Plugs
    bottom Ball Joints
    Suspension arm
    1 wing mirror (it fell off at 70mph)
    fuel breather
    X2 unsealed headlights
    X2 back brake cylnders
    Back Shoes
    Rear Fog lamp
    1 Alloy wheel
    x3 yoko a539s

    just off the top of my head.
    Its all fun though


    Anyone else want to add pictures of their cars?
    Has anyone got any classic/sports cars?

    Damn right!!!! My mate built one of those a while back. He was going to go for 2 bike engines but decided he'd probably kill himself and stuck to a sensible v6


    This is my baby





    Got some coilovers coming in the next few weeks so will get a fair bit lower than it is now

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    cool, pictures?
    do those 17" wheels rub on the arches, or have you got spacers/low profile tyres?

    Every time i think about fast cars, i think about getting an old mini clubman and putting a 16V honda vtec in it, 180bhp as standard, 240+ with a turbo ...
    might sell my car at when im at uni...

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    Currently driving a GT4 but have had a range of cars in the past, Turbo'd JDM Integra, Accord Type R, Focus 1.8, Mondeo 1.6, Fiesta 1.6/1.1, Astra 1.4... erm think that covers most of them and the worst by a mile was the Astra.

    PICS ARE HERE............

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    Being from the Antipodes, I *really* miss my old Holden Commodore.
    The closest thing here is the new Vauxhall VXR8. But at £35k it will be a long time before I get one...

    No, not a turbo Was far too much money to run and insure one in my 2nd year driving. Quite fancy one in a year or 2 though. Problem is they have "turbo" after the name which make the insurance mans hands rub together with glee. Then add to that "import" and hes laughing all the way to the carabian!
    Probably have to wait till im closer to 25.


    Coilovers are a relatively unknown make called K-Sport (D1 in the US iirc), but their reputation is growing fast which can only be a good thing!
    Should get them on soon, only been 5weeks since they arrived
    Damn weather, rained everyday for 5weeks barring the last couple of days. Typical as im off to york this weekend so wont be fitting them then either

    kearton> monaro? you can get an LS1 powered CV8 one for £15k now. I'm holding out for a VRX though as they have the better brakes already fitted (worth £2k) and a better nose. £500 on a quickshift and you're ready to roll.
