    Ownership Verified: The £480 Lexus

    I'd say you got out of this pretty lucky. Is anything besides the bumper (and possibly a few clips) broken? He could've done way more damage to your car. And you will be paid by insurance to fix a previously broken part. Also: I had to Google such a thing, but I've never seen a caravan towing...

    The Positivity Thread aka "Today was a great day because....."

    Will definitely do!

    The Positivity Thread aka "Today was a great day because....."

    I thought about posting it in the "Simple Pleasures" thread, but it's not a small thing in life that's about to happen for me, it's quite big to my eyes. Also, it's not happening today, but some two weeks from now, but I still figured it'd be worth a post in this thread. In two weeks I'm...

    Easy one. Buy the Diablo SV (for future value and those looks), drive the Muricélago LP 670-4 SV (as a requiem of that glorious Bizzarrini V12) and burn the Aventador SJV (as an impressive piece of tech and engineering as it is, sorry, it's the least impressive of the bunch). 4-cyliner boxer...

    Ownership Verified: The wait was long enough: leviathan's Tesla Model 3 Performance

    As much as I don't like the Model 3's design (mostly comparing it to the IMO beautiful Model S), I am very much impressed by its technology. If I were in the market for an electric car, it'd be on the top of my list. Looking forward to reading more about it!

    Other Random Car Sightings [Photo Required]

    Okay, this time something more substantial: Excuse the crappy photo (it was taken inside a moving tram), but this car, even if beaten down a bit which you probably can't see on the photo, seems to be the only original-condition 200SX RS13 in Zagreb. I've seen this car before, and there was...

    Ownership Verified: Wake me up once your turbo spooled up - Meet Scotty, D-Fence's supercharged Mini

    Those eyes are a nice touch, did you do it yourself or did someone else did it previously?

    The "Song Stuck In My Head" Thread

    Listening to the Killers album by Iron Maiden, this song got stuck in my head.

    Ownership Verified: My 1988 Lancia Delta HF Turbo

    Damn, this car is tasteful. I'm also glad you're saving a non-Integrale Delta, I don't think I've seen one in person since... actually, I can't remember if I saw any, except for maybe in a scrapyard. Perhaps I've seen one or two as a child, but I can't remember seeing any at the moment.

    Other Random Car Sightings [Photo Required]

    On paper, and maybe even in a photo, it seems awful, but you just have to see the car to appreciate the colour. Besides, that generation of A-class was the most handsome one in a conventional sense. (Even if I prefer the OG one design-wise, which I know was factually a piece of crap, especially...

    Other Random Car Sightings [Photo Required]

    I've been pondering whether to put this here or in the green hue of awesomeness thread, but I don't feel like bumping a thread that nobody posted in for over a year. Anyway, it's a car I spotted in my neighbourhood. A green Merc A-class. I'm usually not a fan of green cars, less so of modern...

    Ownership Verified: That time FinalGear bought a Munich Roadster (MX-5) to drive from Germany to Finland

    Red interior would work beautifully with a Silverstone exterior. That's been one of my ideal combos ever since I saw this Miata. (Which I was a big fan of back in ca. 2015-2016. My automotive modification taste has changed since.) But it works in general as well, especially on roadsters. Works...

    If You Were a Car, What Car Would You Be?

    I'm thinking Alfa Romeo 156, probably with a twin-spark engine. Somewhat good-looking, a bit idiosyncratic, Mediterranean at heart, but a bit sloppy and not exactly reliable. And somewhat cheap. I could go on and say not as desirable as it once was, but then, the 156 is still desirable, just to...

    Buy the Merc, drive the Bimmer, burn the Volvo. (Even if I like the Volvo, sorry, I just had to burn one and of all the three it was my least favourite...) Porsche Carrera GT Enzo Ferrari Bugatti Veyron

    Ownership Verified: That time FinalGear bought a Munich Roadster (MX-5) to drive from Germany to Finland

    Good, because I like the silver on the NA myself, even if I usually prefer quirky period-correct colours. I'm also in favour of keeping it original, so there's that as well. I do understand that, I'd want the car to be road-worthy ASAP as well after waiting for so long.

    Ownership Verified: That time FinalGear bought a Munich Roadster (MX-5) to drive from Germany to Finland

    Nice to see an update on this, I've been following this project from the very beginning and this is actually the earliest project car I remember following on FinalGear. It's definitely nice to some good progress on it, and I'm really looking forward to future updates. Two things I am curious...

    Ownership Verified: Meet Karl - 1974 Opel Rekord

    So standard problems for such old cars, it seems. Nice to hear that there is no rust! I'd personally keep the hubcaps, but then, it looks great either way.

    Random thoughts.... [Tech Edition]

    I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the Technology Help subforum, so I figured out this doesn't need its own thread. I'm buying a new monitor, as my laptop has an utterly miserable 1366x768 TN screen, but decent specs otherwise. What I want is an IPS screen no bigger than 27" and of...
