Well, perhaps, I don't often try overtake because I know I can't, unless I'm on the motorway, when the Mazda goes like a train. I'm used to it so I won't notice it in that respects, and it's just something you've got to get used to, in England afterall. If I want anything with any power, it costs through the nose to insure, I know there are other alternatives, but when I'm not paying for the car, those are out of the question.

On Topic, looks like I need a new rear tyre, Mum comes home in my car today saying 'what have you done to the Mazda? It feels all jittery and like the back was sliding around on the way home...' So I walk out to have a look and there's a MASSIVE screw in my 2 week old tyre... Cheers Mum...

Trust me on this you're going to notice it. 5 seconds is a big difference. 0-60 in 17 seconds is just too much, and I like slow cars...

Perhaps, but I'll be happy with whatever I get, and now it seems the Polo has a contender for most likely, and that is the Renault Megane Extreme 1.4 (the one with the fat ass) woop woop

possibly; i know wear is less an issue since we upgraded the suspension to lose the understeer. but even then it's still harsher on the tires, even for normal driving.

Actually he's done with that job, he's back at his mother's place in PA and now have access to a computer. He hates UCP now, too.

And I spent the day giving advices to this poor broken man so I don't feel too bad stabbing him.

Not really a purchase, but just traded in 40,000 points in Citibank rewards for $400 in J and R gift cards. For a new set of speakers and the 35mm prime. Just received the cards in the mail.

I've just bought a pair of classic Puma Speed Cats, $56 CAD. So comfy, and perfect to drive.

nice. love the speedcats. i have some puma driving shoes that i swear by. i also have some puma speeders, not outright driving shoes, but they do a damn good job as well.

i just ordered a slab of granite for counter tops, and arranged the installation.
