    New Brit on the block!

    Hello from Manchester, England!! I've joined for some tips and information, and a little chat along the way.

    Currently driving a 2001 Renault Megane (so that's one major issue identified right there), which I don't want to do anything much to, as I am holding out on finding a decent Nissan Silvia Turbo and do any serious work on that. It's still going to take me several months to pay this wreck off, but whilst driving it, I want it to be comfortable and one of my comforts is music, though unfortunately, this is where things have become.... rather annoying. The reason why I will tell you later!

    Other than music, I enjoy archery, windsurfing, rock climbing, mountaineering, kayaking, computer gaming (mainly driving ones) and learning new languages.

    So, see y'all around!

    Z

    Nice to meet you. Take everything you read around here with a grain of salt. Do your homework here and everywhere else you can, and make educated decisions.

    There are great guys here, but there are douchebags too.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Call me mad, but I am quite partial to the old late 80s Silvia

    You've never heard of a nissan silvia? o_O

    Its the japanese version of the 240sx basically, but came with the SR20DET instead of the crappy KA24DE. Front end is different for the S13 and S15.

    Its an SR20DET, not TT. TT would indicate a twin turbo motor.

    In your Manchester scrubs,

    You speak with accent that know one can stand,
    You're ugly fat bastards with shit on yer hands,
    In your manchester scrubs.

    If I had the wings of a sparrow,
    If I had the arse of a crow,
    Id fly over man U tomorrow,
    And shit on the bastards below.

    We don't carry bottles,
    We don't carry lead,
    We only carry hatchets,
    To bury in your head,
    We are the supporters,
    Fanatics every one,
    We all hate Man City,
    And Leeds and Everton,
    We are the kings of Europe,
    The pride of Merseyside,
    We'll fight for no surrender,
    We'll fight for Shankly's pride,
    We hate Tottenham Hotspur,
    We hate Chelsea too,
    But most of all we hate the shit,
    Who play in royal blue.

    1-0 down
    2-1 up
    Michael Owen won the cup
    With a top class Paddy pass gave the lad the ball
    Poor old arsenal won fuck all

    Welcome you limey bastard!

    If' you're looking at the 2001 hatchback edition, it drives worse than it looks and getting even the most simplest of parts, it's an expensive nightmare!

    A quick run-down of the problems I've had since I've had it.

    Spark plugs have stopped working
    Seat hight adjust handle broken off... without anybody even touching it
    Starter motor has died... 3 times
    Motorised window cable has snapped, 200 ($306) to get it replaced.... smeg that!!
    Boot (trunk) locking mechanism seized
    Central locking system failure
    Rear suspension broken in half
    Chassis suffering from severe corrosion

    I think I will stop there, you should be getting an idea of how naff this car is!
