Your golf needs what every golf (from mk1 to mk6 inclusive) Needs: a set of bbs deep dishes and to be bagged. "Low and Wide wins every time".
Good luck with the crown.
@Jonathan Moore oh hell yes! - did you know you where about 2 miles from the mclaren car storage unit over in Woking? - now that's a place I would love to get into! - oh and mclaren do a staff car show every year in the summer, it's brilliant living round here and being a speedhunter!

Period correct and looking well looked after. Nice car.
I'm really glad he is taking his time with seating - it can make or break a car a lot of the time.

@mat88 Instead of ruin how about "make it your own?" - its not your car, its their car and they did their thing with it.
as for the "end of the year"... people have been saying that for the last 10 or so years and matte paint has not gone away yet....
even if you cant get behind the paint and body, how about that engine? thats some nice work in the back they have done - surely you can get behind a well presented engine... right? so concentrate on that.

@milkplus push button - release harvested charge to go faster: that really is kers in a nutshell.
Chill out dude, I'm not saying you are right or wrong I'm discussing the points the post raises.
I think the grey area the moniker "kers" is used to cover needs better understanding and possibly re-catogrising as mechanical, electronic and pneumatic boost systems are all referred to with the same name - mainly because the results are the same: push button, go faster using harvested power.
oh and we agree: the FR-S and BRZ et. al. dont need it, i dont think the CRZ does either but if it means less roadtax for me to pay every year ill adopt it like everyone else.

@milkplus "With the new power, Honda has added a KERS-like boost button to the 2013 CR-Z. Officially dubbed the “Plus Sport” (S+ for short), the new boost system is available when the battery is more than 50 percent charged by hitting the S+ button on the steering wheel. The system then provides up to 10 seconds of boost once the accelerator is mashed to the floor."
sounds like (and works like) kers to me....
and if you are saying Kers doesnt have a battery......
mechanical "Kers" is all but forgotten in F1 these days.
@milkplus and crz owners....
@LavarBowers what about lag?
so performance over fun? hell, when I get into a car I want to have a good time, a people wagon aint ever going to be a performance track weapon - but they took what they had and had fun with it.
IF you remove fun for motoring you end up with a carbon copy car to every other car, a flatcap and talking about "oh that ones not got an original dizzy, we cant give him the concourse ribbon" type BS that speedhunters is the antithesis to IMO.

how about a few international speedhunter events? wouldnt take much, a venue (a car park or, if you are lucky enough to live by one like myself, an automotive museum) a few people to turn up with their cars... some one just has to remember to bring a camera....
it aint hard really.
that was well worth getting off the sofa and watching in full size. brilliant.

I would LOVE more SuperGT coverage: seeing as its not televised over here in the UK/europe any coverage I can get of this brilliant racing series is all good.
and I agree, the HSV should be the next NSX, not the american lead "thing" that Acura are selling.
drifting is great and all, but for me GT racing is where it is at, not least because Im disabled and would never be able to drift (my body wouldnt take it)... however I can at least dream of running up eau rouge or bouncing through the right left right of casio triangle...
plus i grew up on BTCC and D2/DTM so im all about ridiculous Aerodynamics.

I would like to know more about his design process... does he model up in scale using clay or scale models and then go full scale or is it all free form design... does the legend belive in mathmatics and repetative planning or does he just get fired up and attack the car with an angle grider, a rivet gun and a manic smile?
