    Default I am back!

    Well after a lengthy break I am glad to say I am back

    So I went from an Astra H VXR



    To a Civic sport while I got a bike license and bike





    I then got rid of the sport for an Integra Type R UKDM



    I then got rid of the Integra for a Civic Type R FN2



    I traded that in after 4 years and picked this up on Wednesday and I am over the moon with it!



    Cant wait to get back into the meets and stuff, hopefully the West of Scotland region is still as active!

    Welcome back, I really hope your Region is more active than ours in the West Mids, cos this Area is dead..............

    Cheers man! the FN2 was a good compromise for cost of insurance till the bike insurance came down - what is the K8? My cousin had a 600 and now 1000 gsxr but not sure what models, the rest of us all had 600RR's in the end

    West of Scotland was great back in the day, I ended up being the regional photpgrapher - I will need to dip into that area and see who is about. The type R community was appalling to be honest

    Before the Astra I had a 1.8 Corsa C SRI in black as well, I have truly broke a streak The Astra H doesnt really come in a proper black now anyway? its almost a dark grey?

    A true poet

    I do prefer the new Astra, its very well spec'd - I mean I dont think there is any options I doesnt have - not that I am aware of anyway...

    The Astra H had a miltek catback, filter plugs and mapped - stage 2 but cant remember the figures

    The Civic sport was fairly standard apart from the coilovers

    The teg had 4-1 manifold, AEM CAI, HKS powerflow cat back, coilovers, lightened fly wheel and race clucth - not sure on power but standard they were around 190 bhp and with the gearing it kept up with a modified EP3

    The FN2 had a miltek, ram intake and some cosmetics and wasnt mapped but it was 201 bhp

    And the new astra is 276 "standard" but it doesnt appear to be...
