Hello

Postby jimk » Thu May 24, 2007 6:38 pm

Hello all, I've got a 1999 1.8 coming next week so I thought I had better hang out with the folks who know about these things. Someone suggested that buying this car is a symptom of a mid-life crisis, I hope so, because if I'm at the middle of life then I'm going to live till I'm over 110. :lol:

No it isn't red, its Image (from an image I unashamedly pinched)

The rear lights are red so I don't expect complete rejection. :lol: :lol:

Oh and hold the paint, I'd only make an awfy mess with it.

Welcome to the forum :D

Hi Jim, excellent choice of car and colour :D , Racing Bronze and Racing Green were the launch colours of the Mk-2 car in 1998, the Bronze one being the most prodominant on the publicity hand outs and test cars.
Hope to see you at some of our events, come along to the Pub Meet, even if you don't have the five yet.

Hi Jim and welcome. :P

I like the bronze, it's not quite up to the same class as silver. :wink:

But it's definately classier than the red. :D

Hi Jim,

Welcome, I'm sure you'll enjoy your car, I've yet to hear anyone say they don't.

Hope to see you at some of the events.

Cheers

From one mid lifer to another, and also from the wee county, welcome.

I've decided not to be nasty to others who buy cars with the wrong colour, but to welcome them as if they had bought a shiney primer one. Someone last week referred to that colour as "Keich", but I wouldnt be that unkind, after all you cant polish Keich

have loads of fun and thoosanns of miles topless driving.

Look out for a shiney primer 1999 Mk 2, floating around Alloa and Tullibody, and driven by a 50 something balding, but still remarkaly attractive, mid lifer. Give us a wave

Frank,

Thanks for the welcome. Could I possibly suggest that if you or anyone close to you has keich the same colour as my car then a wee trip to the doctor might be in order. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here it is

I'm not sure about the 17" wheels, thinking about puting Mazda wheels on it. Does anyone else run 205/40 R17, and other than looking cool, is there any advantage over 195/50 R15s

I've got the same size wheels and tyres.

I think they definately improve the roadholding :twisted: but you do sacrifice some of the comfort. :roll:

Others have often said that I am built for comfort, so I'll maybe give the standard items a go, I can always change back.
