  1. Harlequin soob ftw Pretty just slows you down 😄
  2. Not in our lifetime. The latest BRZ is still rwd, gets a 2.4 NA motor with a mighty 170kw/228bhp. Which Focus RS were you referring to ? The 2nd gen FWD one was rubbish, sounded amazing, didn't handle that well, and didn't feel like it had 300hp. The later 4wd was a ball of fun with the rear clutch pack activated drift mode. PS nice burns on the TM auction, what a bunch of bellends 🤣
  3. That might have been pre-release info. In JDM land there are 3 versions, including a 1.5 NA FWD with 10-speed CVT 🤣 I drove the black car in my pic above, it's one of the original TNZ press cars. Faster and better handling than the current STI. 😄
  4. NZ new got the best spec ! Circuit pack F+R LSDs plus the satnav, JBL stereo etc of the Comfort pack Most of the stupid priced imports are low spec. Avoid.
  5. Better late than never... Mk7 GTI is a much sportier drive than a 6R. The 6R uses the previous gen (Mk5) motor with cambelt and is much more reliable, many chain drive Mk6 GTI's have suffered from chain tensioner failures - expensive, often fatal. Golfs use a Haldex AWD system, nominal 90/10 torque split to front, a slow reactive system. Subaru's permanent AWD is a superior solution. The 7R is much better but still no match for a GTI with VW's front LSD - like a Haldex operating on the same axle. A GTI Clubsport/Edition 40/40 Years - same car , different name for different markets, or the 7.5 GTI TCR are much better drives and once moving, just as fast or faster than a 7/7.5R.
  6. All rather underwhelming. Best wait for the GR Corolla 😄
  7. Add a roof rack and carry a full set of spares 😁 Me fail - just noticed the date 😝
  8. did JDMs come with factory immobiliser ? my 00 nz new sti v6 had a locally fitted security system.
  9. i'm no help. not been to elite since eddie's days. they have moved ? 2020 sti ? i'd leave it alone ! last of the breed.
  10. 🤣 https://www.reddit.com/r/s***ty_Car_Mods/comments/ic0nbo/ive_never_seen_a_sadder_existence_somebody_needs/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
  11. New shoes, just in time for rainy season 😄
