    So... is anyone into their cars over here?

    Mine is definitely a hobby. An expensive one at that.

    What do you drive? Do you do track days? Random drives out on your favourite road?

    Do you modify your car? If so, how?

    I've only just applied to do my driving test, despite being mad into cars. So I don't own one, and thus I haven't done any thing you listed... other than drool at what I can't have :p

    I love cars, at the moment i just drive a blue fiat punto (called Lorenzo ;) ) and i dont go to track days or anything just enjoy looking at them/listening to them and reading mags.

    My ideal car would be a 1992 Mk1 Mazda MX5 *drools* and had a dream last night that i got a proper vw camper :D i love my old cars lol

    Another petrol head here and big Renaultsport (RS) fan.

    Love to watch the BTCC and F1. Also go to the World Series By Renault every year apart from this year cos of the damn Olympics it's been cancelled for a year grrrrrr.

    Hi

    Anything of a german engineering nature interests me, but mainly Dubs

    Had a 5 series beemer about 10yrs ago, but have had Vw's ever since then.

    Drawn to cars by how they look and have been to a few shows. Not into the modifying scene personally but each to their own.

    I like cars that have a few tweaks but not the ones with major stuff done to them

    Hey Debs

    Sounds a nice motor you had. VW are ok like the GTi's

    I'm not into the big mods thing either, just the bhp lol ;)

    I like fast cars and if ever win the lotto, would buy my dream cars.

    I like cars and have had lots over the years. I've also had lots stolen too! :(

    I'm in the process of slowly rebuilding my beach buggy as after building it the first time I only did 100 miles (not even enough to run the engine in) before I completely stripped it down again to change the chassis and suspension. It's about 50% complete so far.

    I love Hondas and drive a Civic Type R at the moment while my wife has a yellow Jazz. Being a student again now I don't intend replacing either of them for a couple more years.
