lots of fun, that V12 the sound is amazing :)

drb5, its pretty nice down here , been sunny, but the nights get to that juuustt right feeling. if you know what i mean. not been overly hot tho, but nice and sunny.

haha was doing some silly slides with the ESP off but the MPs (military popo) was getting a little...watchful :p so we left in a hurry.

Trying to convince the old man to trade it in and get the 2007 CL63 AMG, thats looks like a real mean car. but he like the softer luxuary ride more than the skin burning performance :p

Ah nice nice, yes it seems to be the place where most British citizens come to retire :p BUT if you plan on coming before that, word of warning, is mega expensive to bring cars here, did a quick Calc to bring an R32 from one of the members here, sold in the UK for about 9500 by the time you are done with taxes and duty payments, its 19,500 CYP haha so yeah pretty damn nuts.

Anyway, yeah the CL is pretty nice as a touring car actually, haha the seats can even give yer back a rub down while you drive!!! ill try to grab some interior pics tommrow :)

Lol. There's that many good jap cars over there i'd prolly not bother and just one over there. Mind you, i've yet to see a GTR! Plenty scoobs and evos, but no Skylines.

Hopefully catch some of the WRC when i'm over too, but i've heard the weather ain't supposed to be great for the next week. :(

Aye it was actually a little nipy today!! dunno about if you are going to the beach but yeah nice enough for say, BBQs up in the mountains.

Hmmm, there are a few GTRs, more 32s really but they hardly drive them here cause the cops give locals a hard time :p with tuned cars.

There is one Stock R34 for sale near me, but i cant justify the use of money on a car right now, got other things to take care of.

But yes yo are right lots of EVOs and Scoobs, Tuning is basiclly outlawed here. A guy i know spent alot of money putting a TypeR engine in to a Old Mini and had it taken away a week later by the cops!! he wasnt doing nothing silly, there is just this huge gray area here with such things, because of recent deaths by silly people who tune their cars and think they are part of the F&F Crew that can walk away from any thing.

So far i know of two GTR 33s and 34s and a few 32s, all of which (appart from the one i stated above) are really tuned. dunno numbers cause for some reason they all seem to be right cocks. Comment on how their car looks good and they gave me a real bad look like i just abused their sisters or something :p haha i dunno.

bah im rambling.. :p
