    Thought you wanted a DC2. I think it's a good choice.

    Had a mb6, ek4, EK9, DC2 now a e46 m3


    If u want the most driver engagement and enjoyment experience then go for a DC2 buddy, don't get me wrong the m3 is awesome h just can't enjoy it on the rd as much

    It would, but that's on the lower end, set aside 3500-4500 for one. Any evo you buy, newer or older, will need some kind of work doing to it, put aside at least a grand for things you'll need/ought to do to make it mechanically sound (parts are not cheap)

    There is no bad evo engine (crankwalk is avoidable with the right clutch setup), just poorly maintained ones, receipts for recent servicing are key.

    How do you find the CL9 bro, i've always wanted one.
     
  16. ben bury Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    CL9 is a great car. Good chassis for huge potential

    Went from a b16 ej8 to a S2000,


    Best choice I've ever made


    Literally the most fun car I've driven

    I want away from Hondas for a while, so tired of having to rag the nuts off it to get it to go anywhere, and it sitting at 4500rpm on the motorway.


    I think I'm going to go for something small engined but turbo next, it's the future. Fiesta ST is no. 1 on my list, great cars.

    Nowt wrong with the FK.

    no but not really a car to aspire to tho is it ? its like lusting after a scooby . . . . . but one with a ej15 non turbo in

    Non turbo imprezas sound immense! There's a non turbo r33 skyline in my estate that also sounds awesome. Slow though
