    Brands is an excellent first track IMO. I'm navigationally retarded, but still managed to learn my way round pretty quickly. Lots of runoff at most of the corners too.

    New TV... What to do?

    Size is interesting. We've got a dedicated cinema in part of our basement, it's not an enormous room, but I use a projector to throw 150 inches of image on the wall and it's perfectly comfortable to...

    New car time - Golf R32 Mk5 advice?

    Got the same engine in my Volvo. It's thirsty as hell, never seen 30mpg, average 24 over a tank.

    Edit: Shouldve read the rest of the thread, Mark already said it.

    Just to echo everyone else, no way would I swap that 323 (which looks properly awesome) for that 13 (which looks like it's had a hard life).

    Chord of that wing looks a bit excessive. I think you'll have laminar flow issues. (Based on what I know about sails, which are basically wings, right?)

    Thanks for the link Si.

    Most interesting bit is no gearbox, direct drive to the rear axle, just one big wave of torque.

    200's as everyday rides

    I think the -30mm that I got from Eibach springs was perfect for a daily.

    I then ran Apex coilovers with 8/6 springs, they were miles too hard for everyday use IMO.

    I'd go with the above and...

    Coilovers and a bucket seat ruined my 14a. Was fine until I added them. Sold it pretty soon after.

    cheap 4x4 for offroading

    Agreed, although I think this refers to Defenders really. My Defender was pretty crap. Not even that impressive off road.

    Consider a Jeep.
