    Default another newbie

    Hi Folks,

    just signed up for the site today - seems there are a few of us from the uk here.

    Not much of an influence for any sort of modifications up in pomme land so looking from a bit of inspiration

    car as you can see below is a gen 1 mps, one of the last made is 4 months old with only 5k miles on the clock. nothing you's wont of seen before!

    Im new to the world of mazdas and also own a 911 c4s which is tucked up for the scottish winter.

    hopefully speak to some of you guys through time.

    cheers
    stoddie







    and a couple of the 911

    Are the M3 style mirrors aftermarket bolt-on or a full custom fitment?

    cheers for the welcome chaps, much appreciated.

    never realised there were such a difference between the oz and uk models, whats the differences between the jap version and the oz/uk version?

    the porsche is a completly different drive, a bit dosile in a sense but with having a flat 6 the torque is ther from the off, and being 4wd (when needed) the porsche is noticably faster. when its up to speed the power to the front wheels is reduced so its not a permanent 4wd system.

    both completly different cars and both fun in their own ways. most people know a porsche is fast (except bmw drivers who try it on all the time) on the other hand theres very few 3 mps round about scotland so people dont have a clue.
