Re: TUESDAY

afternoon. just got back from 'Torque GT' in south Devon. four hour round trip. they import and sell JDM performance cars. i test drove an EVO 5, you know,,, just to see what they are like.. but didn't like it. i felt like i was in Darth Vaders tie-fighter
also drove a version 4 Type-r it must be said that the difference between my UK and the JDM Type-r was night and day.

it's got me all excited about getting a new car. the car i went to see was quite pricey for the age. it was not in as good as condition as i would like - for the money they were asking for it. it had just been imported and had no history, so not really for me.,, here's the car.. http://www.torque-imports.co.uk/cardetails.php?c=180

the car seemed to run well, but there were lots of little issues that added up.

Re: TUESDAY

it was nice, but not nice enough, lots of small niggles that i was not happy with. i may go back down there before long. there were more cars to try. i think i caught them on the hop, as they asked me if i had an oppointment, because they had planned to shut up shop to go and collect a customers car from southampton.........oops! but at least i got to see the cars before they had chance to cover anything up on them.

Re: TUESDAY

you can get it if it was imported from new or early in it's life but of course not if it was imported a couple of months ago

anyways, a big problem i had with the car was it had a japanese service sticker in by the drivers dash board side showing the last service. it was April 2006. the car had done abot 16000 km's since. Even the the bloke at Torque GT looked a bit shocked after he had pointed out the sticker to me.- i bet he wished he hadn't now. he made out that the car had probably been sitting around waiting for auction,,, but even so, i would not want a car that had been sitting for a length of time.

i will be making another trip down there soon. to be honest, it was an awesome car to drive, but it looks better in the photos.
