I think that wasn't a real taxidriver. ;) This guy looked more like a securityguy and probably was connected to Ubisoft in some way or just a private shuttle- or chauffeurservice. I didn't ask him to be honest. He was just the driver that brought me from the hotel back to the airport. The other players who were in the workshop with me had to drive with a regular minibus btw. :D

I enjoyed seeing so many Teslas when I was in Norway back at the beginning of March, certainly something different to look at. It must have been getting on for one (sometimes more) on every street when I was there, but reading about it the Norwegian government offer some decent incentives to get people to buy them over the standard petrol/diesel choices. In the four months I've been back in England I've seen a grand total of two of the things.

 

Hoovies Garage on YouTube bought a Model S with 106,000 miles on it a couple of months ago. I'd say its a good job most of the work has been done under warranty on the thing previous to him buying it. Apparently no issues with the battery, but the touch screen and three of the door handles ($1K each) and the drive motor (twice) had to be replaced before 100K, but I think that was all to do with it being an early production car.

 

I think I'd still like to have one one day, but I'll have to offset it with a V8 that I'll just leave idling while I'm out in the Tesla.

Tesla is certainly one major mover for electric cars, but a lot has to say about their build quality, maybe in few years they can step up the game

 

at this point I might stuck with the car with my this "non refundable" order and non reachable customer support

Thanks everyone! I've put the suspension mods for the Mustang on hold as it looks like I'm buying my friends AE86 in the next week or so, which is rather exciting. I'll make sure to get some photos once I've officially got the car. For now heres a sound clip my friend took not to long ago.

So here it is, my 1985 Toyota Corolla GTS. Its got a few JDM goodies such as SSR wheels, Bride seats, a Crystal Body Yokohama front bumper and plenty more. It's in excellent shape and is roadworthy as is. Just a matter of fixing up some little nitpicky things and it will be perfect.

A "57 Morris Minor.

Its a running resto, barrels a barrel of laughs and no matter where you go it gets smiles, waves and randoms coming up for a chat about it. 

 

Also my first post here in a long time. 🙂

It is not everyday that you see a car from 1957 in the streets, i suppose. Plus, i believe these were really popular back then, no?

well ive changed lots of stuff to reach 435hp. Changed the turbos, new exhaust (as you can see in the pics), My friend tuned the ECU (not an electrical guru so i dunno how he did it, but i saw it he did it with the dyno and a computer). overall the turbos spools up fast and the sound is orgasmical 🙂
