I've been driving my audi r8 for more than a year now, only had to change an oil.

I really love gran turismo.

I've gone and seen all the different flavours for those now, and I'm hungry, and it's late.
I hold you responsible, Slick!

Batmobile ride

I obviously didn't buy it but when my mate put his daughter in one of those 50p rides I saw an opportunity to fulfil a lifelong dream!

9/10

I would of gave it a 10/10 but I forgot my costume.

We've had this Civic for a little while now but she drives it more than me and she just doesn't get on with it.
I sorta understand as what with it being a sporty one, the comfort is an afterthought.
I will give it another year or so and then chop it in for summat else. I personally love it but I was selfish when I got it really.
And I love Audis. If funds didn't dictate then I would have an A5.
My big bruv who is the wealthy one of the family recently chopped his Merc in for a Jag XF. It is lovely and my boy loves it.
A pwopa Londoners motah!


Mate had a civic type r (old school one, not the angular triangle exhaust one) and the ride was hard on that.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Looking at which car to buy. This'll be my first time I've spent a quite a lot of money on a car. I was originally going to get a sensible 1.9tdi A3 or something similar but decided against it as I want something fun to drive.

So was looking at getting another Turbo but decided against it as they're unreliable and expensive to maintain even when doing all the work yourself. Plus MPG is p**s poor and I will be disappointed if it isn't as fun as my MR2 was.

So I'm down to looking at something slightly sporty, can get reasonable MPG and that isn't going to increase my insurance premium by too much.

Here are 3 cars that I'm looking at, tough decision.

I'm not a fan of the VVTi's at all in the looks department apart from the GT model, only thing with this one is that it's slower than the Civic Type R.

Then there's this Civic, like the idea of one of these as they're so reliable but it's the dearest one on insurance but the fastest out of the 3.

Then finally the newer shape Civic. I'm not a fan of the rear end of these cars but it's newer than the other 2 and I quite like the front end and the side of it more than the older model.

I'm not necessarily going to be buying any of these 3 but they're close to what I want. Tough decision :(

Celica all day long, but that's just me.

I actually think this could be a great new thread. A "which would you choose to buy?" thread for such conundrums, I've always got a few things I'm looking at buying that I can't decide on.

Gotta be honest Jim I'm pretty sure I'll be going for the GT. It's a much nicer looking car, it's just slower than the Type R. I'm just looking now for somewhere to test drive one to see if it's that big a deal. My missus prefers the Celica too.

Edit- Good idea Jim, if you set the thread up I'll move my post into there.

How often do you get to really stretch a car these days? Style wins over power in my books, with cars anyway.

Valkyria Chronicles Development/Artbook - 9/10

As far as art book goes, for a single game, this is very in-depth. Along with the artwork and in-game models for the characters, weapons, vehicles and enviroment its a surprsingly wordy book too, with lots of descriptions about the things that were added in, why some things were changed and even cut entirely.
Probably one of my favourite art books to date, right next to the hyrule historia.
Time to rock n' ruin!

Seriously, civic is hideous. Is there no better car for that price?
