Just realised i never said hi, so here we go..................... Hi


I recently bought a Mk4 GT TDi 3 door in black having come from a Ford Focus ST170 and a Gen 5 Celica GT

The Celica really was my baby and i only let it go due to increasing rot and engine issues, but in her day she was a show winner





After that i wanted another equally quick motor but something a bit newer, so went for an ST170, but i couldn't cope with the shoot build quality after owning Jap metal, hence why i ended up going German

Here are some pics of the old ST





Then luckily i saw the light and bought this little beaty

Cheers Dan, that old Celica was a big part of my life, spent the best part of 4 years getting her looking like that only to be thwarted by the bloody rust

And Mark, don't get me wrong the ST is a cracking car for the money, but i just felt like the bumpers would fall off if I washed it too hard and the interior is spare to say the least, but on a back road blast it was cracking, although round town the stock suspension is very very crashy

welcome love the look but that tow eye makes it look like a boy racer car..... the rest looks spot on mate! you could just push the tow eye back in ready to be pulled out when needed

I know not everyone likes tow eyes/hooks exposed, but i kinda like it, so it will be staying for now, and it ties in all the bits of orange around the car

And hey, if everyone liked the same things we'd all be driving bog standard cars
