    Peugeot 107 - long term bangernomics

    That's the plan anyway... My recent purchase; Peugeot 107 Urban, 59k miles, 3 owners (the last since 2010), and compared to others I've seen, it's a gem. Apart from the one dink at the base of the OSR door (which I plan to leave as is) and a couple of bumper bracket fixing issues (very easy...

    A weaponised Ford Escort RS2000...

    I put a couple of stills of this beast in the "Cars spotted" thread, didn't plan to but had my GoPro with me on the day so filmed what I could in case I could make anything of it...and the new 7 Black excelled, stability, lighting, and especially the sound, both inside and outside of the moving...

    My first time driving RWD with an LSD

    Oh my, what a difference. I had this done a week ago so have gotten to grips with it a bit more since I made this... Predictable, consistent, and lively sums it up...and that's in the dry. I'm looking forward to getting it out in the rain :ROFLMAO:

    Buying used iPhones?

    I need to get hold of an iPhone, 6 or onwards, for as little money as possible. I've seen many retailers selling 'pristine' phones for circa £150-£200 which works for me. Before I jump in and risk getting burned...does anyone have any first-hand experience or recommendations of where I should...

    I kicked a Skyline's ass part 2

    Not strictly a 'Skyline' I know, but this session was like a trip down memory lane... ...and part 1, filmed 10 years ago ? on a very poor 4:3 potato... :ROFLMAO:(y) I am so loving this thing :love:

    MarkCup's BMW M140i

    Having got thorughly fed up with continual dealership visits and a Focus RS that always had something wrong with it I finally cried "Enough!" and managed to find this peach. It was registered in March 2017 (the exact same day my RS started rolling down the production line!) and had 10,060 miles...

    I'm beginning to regret buying the RS...

    ...not from the way it drives...but because of Ford's monumentally sh*t ability to build an engine that works!

    Ford Focus RS mk2

    After a year of trying I finally got to have a go in one, what a thing they are...I can see why there's so much love for them...and also why mk2 owners tend to not love the mk3 LOL

    Goodwood's 76th Members' Meeting

    RS - Feel the Need

    Along with uncertainty and a mssive PITA there's also a big nod to the CS old-timers in here. Thanks to @ForceIndia for the inspiration :up:😂

    Ford Focus RS : day 151 : Ford v BMW, the RS...

    Ford Focus RS : day 101 : Trackday noise test

    A surprising result (in comparison my 172 Cup was 89db) and a useful piece of advice from the marshalls...

    Ford Focus RS : day 94 : The perfect spec RS?

    This one hurt a little...spending this many miles on bumpy roads with the dampers firmed up is not recommended...and all with the usual side order of cringe. :up::up::up:

    Day 80 : The RS beats them ALL!

    It truly does...and not a spreadsheet or even so much as a mention of data anywhere. Plenty of cringe as usual though.

    MarkCup's 2017 Ford Focus RS

    Hyundai i10 review - LOL

    With my Fiesta ST gone, my Focus RS currently somewhere unkown en route to my dealer, and with nothing but a hire car to entertain I took a critical look at Hyundai's shoebox. Oddly I'm quite enjoying it!
