  1. Safest bet is to stick with premium then, probably what most of us are running anyway. I'm just hoping they leave that alone, even if the price jumps a bit as a result. Maybe an old wives' tale, but isn't Momentum artificially pushed to 99 RON by using bioethanol anyway? Probably safer to stick with BP/Shell premiums, but I get that can be a pain. I do get a bit bored of having to drive 20 mins away when there is a petrol station in the village XD Had that issue with my old 185 and it only ran properly on V Power... CS is a UK model, so should be ok, though with a stand alone I'll set it for 97 RON.
  2. Nice one, looking good! Mine arrived too, really quick turn around. Just need my car back now XD
  3. Got my Bronze and Silver on the way. I probably should get the car finished now XD
  4. Toyota are currently offering "high miler" stickers to people with... High miler Toyotas. https://mag.toyota.co.uk/high-mile-club/ I think it's a nice touch!
  5. Sent you a whatsapp, I've always wanted a set of these and have a decent wheel place in the town here :-)
  6. Maybe put in the "cars for breaking" or "car parts" section? Just a thought...
  7. This just makes me think of Motorhub. Definitely something dodgy there XD
  8. Really well put, totally agree with this! Seems companies are happy to dish a load of power into hot hatches, but not into coupes. Shame really.
  9. That's about to change, the new Yaris GRMN looks like the real deal and the specs are decent.
  10. "The development code of this vehicle is 086A[4] and its main production names 86 (pronounced "eight-six" or Hachi-Roku (ハチロク) in Japanese, but more commonly pronounced as "eighty-six") or GT86, reference historic Toyota front-engined and rear-wheel drive sports coupés and hatchbacks, in the form of: the 1967 2000GT (Japan's seminal fastback coupé whose design cues adorn the 86 and which was also powered by a 2.0-litre engine); and the 1983 to 1987 AE86 range (renowned for its handling and drifting abilities). Toyota also referenced to its first sports car, the Sports 800, given that both this car and the 86 share a boxer engine layout,[5] as widely used by project partner and 86 manufacturer, Subaru." Good old Wikipedia! Whether it can be trusted is another thing. I didn't know it was also related to the engine layout. Totally fair, if I had £26k I would certainly not be happy to spend that on a GT86. Though to spend £4k on a G7 GT and then keep the remaining £22k... much happier!
  11. I always feel a bit sorry for the 86, gets so much grief and seems people have COMPLETELY missed the point as to what it's about. It's a nod back to the old 86 from the 80s, low power but amazing balance/handing and super fun to drive. The handling is on another level to the Gen 7. Not really sure why people bring speed to the equation either, both cars are slow (stock). No one buys a Celica/86 for speed, so many cheaper/same price options with vastly more power and "speed". It's all about the character, nothing beats our cars for that! Obviously at current prices you get a lot more car for your money with the 7... but in 15/20 years I'm not sure which will stick in the memory more.
  12. Is there anything that can be done to change the final drive on a 190 box?
  13. THIS^ Not sure why anyone would buy a 140 now when a 190 is about the same price.
  14. Remind me to never bring you along when going to see a new car then! Sounds like you managed to buy a proper dud.
  15. Around me I just leave stuff out the front of my house and they always disappear. Do you get any rag and bone trucks drive around you? Otherwise you can probably go to the tip?
  16. In answer to your question, someone that couldn't afford a Supra. I went there ;-) (Waiting for the tide of butt hurt). In all seriousness they are all so different. Gen 7s seem to attract the younger lot, Gen 1s the rich lot, GT4s WRC fans and then all of the old Gran Turismo fanboys from the 90's with Gen 6s. (Look at me stereotype)! I'm 27, work for a video games company and should probably "fit" into the Gen 7 category, though I listen to Phil Collins and think I'm Crockett from Miami Vice in my Gen 5, so... What I really like about the club is the variety of backgrounds and interests without your usual amount of dick swinging.
  17. Happy 1 Anniversary EasyRight89!

  18. 7k gets you an immaculate ST205 or ST185 CS, with change to spare. Or a 190 with loads spare to mod it to shit. It can also get you a decent Evo or Scoob, so it's just silly money.
  19. Well my car is a bit of a mess and looks a bit chav/rice (until I sort it out), but the day I got it, my neighbor was shocked, "WOW, you've got an Aston Martin?!?!?!" Sadly I was bought back down to earth when my other neighbor said, "is that a Vauxhall?" Maybe he meant the Calibra... in which case that's ok!
