i was thinking he would steal it, but that sounds right too
With any luck soon I should be the owner of an ex police Morris Minor 1000.
Quote from Klutch :Sheesh. thats "Raw" and "hardcore" for you guys? :/

Noooooo, please read Mr. I made a shit video of a doughnut so I'm cool.

I'm looking to sell the Golf to fund something more Raw and Hardcore.

If you read it properly then you would of known that.

I did put a deposit on a RB25 powered R32 Skyline with 400bhp a couple months ago, but the sale fell through. - Thats no bullshit either, I actually have the receipt here with me.

Bawbag - I am actually a member there. Only made a few posts. I'm guessing your a member there then? HERE is my profile there.
Nice, yea i've been on there for over a year or so, though only have abour 100 posts since I only just got another golf a couple of months ago.

Tidy car, shame they didn't do a V6 TDI though.

Nawww, did i make you angry?

I know, i can read quite fine.

As above, it seems you're the one that needs to learn to read, i was referring to Skylines and silvias as being "raw" and "hardcore" not your silly little golf.

Congratulations, thats almost an every day occurrence in australia. Sux2bu
I think the point Klutch was making is that a Skyline isn't "raw" at all.

A 7 on the other hand... one day, one day
So what is "raw" exacty?

Btw Niall if you like your VW why don't you just go for a AUQ Mk4? With a remap and a few mods they hit 240bhp quite easily. Sounds like fun to me...
Quote from Bawbag :So what is "raw" exacty?

Certainly not a mildly modified skyline or silvia, i cant be on the road one day without seeing 2 or 3 of them, and thats on a bad day.

my perception of raw and hardcore is something thats a track based road car. (Stripped interior, Rollcage, Built motor, yet still retains road registeration and is driven ont he road)
The most hardcore you can get is in a Suzuki alto do you know how scary it is going over 160 KM/H in one of those?
That car should not be road legal its lethal and scary.

But thats quite leasurely and cruising when driving normally, the opposite of a raw/hardcore car.

When you take it beyond cruise it becomes lethal that's how hardcore it is.

IMO hardcore is the basic car without any rubbish in it just raw basic engine body seats wheels you get the idea.
It is sort of similar to your vision of raw but still slightly different, but i get your idea of raw which would make my dads car very raw since it has stripped interior and roll cage.
On a completly unrelated note, brother got his license back today.

LET THE SKIDS COMMENCE!

See that's what I am against racing on the streets and doing things like long drifts and burnouts and doughnuts on the streets.
Quote from Klutch :This video should be of interest to you, then!

Sadly the music is what I refer to as horrible and the action isn't even that great...
Still very illegal and dangerous but it seems you cant be convinced so I wont even try.
And no I don't find burnouts on totally deserted and empty parking lots dangerous.
Hiphop isnt everyones liking but you call Pendulum and Prodigy horrible?
Quote from Klutch :Hiphop isnt everyones liking but you call Pendulum and Prodigy horrible?

Yes there also horrible..
You have terrible taste in music.

Awww maaaan. I was sooooooooooooo close with my car being raw and hardcore
it's okay, mine isn't boosted




yet lol

I still have a LOOONG way to go, I have a lot of parts to get and gotta get wheels at some point in time.
XCNuse, still liking that car? I'm searching for a car and it's in my list of prospects. Problem is, there isn't too many of them around me to go see.

No laughing as I show my age here, but Mazda3, Ford Focus, Jetta, Toyota Matrix (and Pontiac version), Corolla, and similar cars are all in the list. Just looking for a work runner with some room in the back for the kids, but something like the Toyota Matrix or even the Mazda3 hatchback would go a long way on replacing some miles on my wife's little SUV, which is the main "family" car, when we are all together.

Trying to hunt an example of each down to give the general car a test drive to weed any out. Thus far I think the Focus will be weeded out due to weak engine and Jetta will more than likely be weeded out due to fuel mileage from what I am seeing.

XC, how much Ford is in that Mazda. I'm not too happy with my wife's Mazda Tribute being basically a rebadged Escape. It's 3 years old with 60,000 miles and it's failed the last 2 out of the 3 total state inspection. I've got more money wrapped up in this Mazda than I have in the last 500,000 miles of my 4 Toyotas and a Nissan I've owned.
I absolutely love my 3 to death every time I get in it.

As for what you compared it to; focus is out, it has so little power, what's the use. I was honestly quite surprised because I just recently heard how little even the Focus SVT has..

Jetta is good; they get phenominal gas mileage... or should I say can?
Jetta is a common car, its nice, nothing wrong as far as I am aware.

I can't say how well it competes against a matrix or though, I haven't been in one of those yet, but they do produce the same power; I have no idea how much trunk space they have though (i'll get on to that in a second)
Pontiac vibe is a mean looking car, I kind of like them.
but for a larger liter engine .. it doesn't go as easy at the pump according to True Delta's real gas mileage ratings: http://www.truedelta.com/fuel_economy.php?session_code=0


I really just hate to sound against the others and pro Mazda.
But here's a comparison about this car. (this is assuming you get the hatchback, and not the brand new ones)
2.3 liter engine; produces a rated 156 ponies, and it is pretty accurate to all of the dyno sheets I have come across.

Gas mileage: being a hatchback it is of course heavier, and also in the US market you can only get the 2.3 liter model (or in the new ones up to 2.5), doing highway only traveling if I try I have managed to get up to 38 mpg... Which for me personally is absolutely astonishing.. the car is rated at a HORRIBLE 22/29. I have YET to get down below 30mpg even in city driving.
Also note mine is manual; I don't think the weight matters with automatics these days like they used to though.

What all can I stuff in the boot?
Roommate and I discovered this one unintentionally (or did we?) We fit in a 50" plasma tv in its box, and with the rear seats down, it fit perfect; wish I had the dimensions of that box.. but it was HUGE.

The most recent news is in 2009 there were more sales of 3s in Canada than there were Civic.. which is possibly a good thing? It's popular either way. Sedan more than any other though.

Speed 3; well.. if I had the choice I would for sure get the speed, it's a hatchback, its badass.. it's basically the top of the line as far as FWD turbo cars on the market.. still. It is the king in its position; if you're reading reviews and they mention torque steer.. they have 0. I don't know why reviewers seem to have issues with it, but.. it has almost no torque steer at all.


Okay; as far as what is Ford in the car goes.. Every car anyone buys will have some sort of issues, that's just the world we live in, nothing is perfect. The only common issue is the passenger side motor mount will go out. Mine went out the day I drove it off the lot. Everyone's seem to go every 50k-60k miles. That's ford for you. It costs about $60 to replace it, and it took my dad and I about 15 minutes. If you're worried, there are aftermarket mounts that will run you just over $100 and I haven't heard one of them break yet.

Oh, and here is the picture of the tv box in my car.

It is no surprise it has become a popular car. There aren't to many problems with them, they get astonishing gas mileage, and very comfortable to sit in, in all places.

Other than the motor mount breaking there are few issues i've seen around on the forum except for people throwing CELs from modifying. I mean motor mounts go out in all cars; they're made to supress vibration.. nothing like that lasts forever.

If you can get a deal on one, go for it, I can't come up with one reason not to.

I get my short throw shifter in tomorrow.. woo wooo!! It'll feel nice to have that baby installed.
