    My current steed.

    Only the 4th car I've owned, but it's probably the best.

    First car: Mk1.5 focus 3 door 1.6 petrol
    Second car: Mk2.5 Focus ST3 (what a noise!!!)
    Third car: Audi a4 1.8T B8 Avant (I bought a house, the ST had to fund some of the deposit )

    I have no idea why mine is not showing up
    Someone left a note on a piece of cake in the fridge that said, "Do not eat!". I ate the cake and left a note saying, "Yuck, who the hell eats paper ?

    They're super marmite and you either 'get' them or don't. I've actually got a full set across the whole rear windscreen of the car now, and an aero functional front splitter with tie bars. Most people don't like the look any more, but hey ho. It's my car, it's not for other people.

    Rear slats like that make sense in a 70's supercar where they keep the rain off the rear engine which is worth the reduced visibility. I'm struggling to see an upside here though.

    Because it looks fricking awesome.

    I'd have a big old GT3 style wing on the back of that though.

    They were designed back in the day for coupes to keep sun out the cabin. Tint film wasn’t invented. Look at 70’s/80’s Mustangs, Jap Z’s and AE86’s etc. This is a nod to the past that’s all. Doesn’t effect aero hugely since it’s a dead zone, and those that do on the side are pretty small.

    Told you they were Marmite

    As for a wing, I’ve got something coming as a test but I’m not sure if it’s going to just be sold on.

    Plenty of people don't like it, but glad you do.

    It's had a few other mods.. namely one of these, an overpipe and a remap to suit

    Re: Car Showroom v2.1

    I just drive a little car ( suzuki ) and this thread seem to be for people that identify with their ride, mine are just a way to get from A to B
    And bare in mind as a Dane i suffer from buy 1 car pay for 2 as set forth by the idiots we vote for.

    I do identify with some cars, my dream car are the Marauder as seen on Top gear,,,,,, no super / hyper cars in my future not even with a Uber lotto win.
    I might buy a nice sports car with a big lotto win, and a expensive one too, but it will have to be a old one from back when they made good looking cars.
