Hi all

Thanks for letting me join.

Currently I have a 4motion on a 52 plate which we bought as a run around, as I fell off my bike going to work.

Anyway thinking of upgrading to a R32, looked at a 55 plate one yesterday but never really got to drive it, very far. Other cars I'm thinking about are 350Z or a Scooby, although those scream midlife crisis!

So why should I buy a R32??

Will it be that much better than more 4motion??

Are they very expensive to mod, not thinking about a supercharger as that really would break the bank but maybe exhaust, remap & induction. What hp would that give me??

Finally big respect for getting a decent turn out in East Anglia, I used to have a Focus ST & could never get that many cars for a meet!

I can't justify why you should or shouldn't buy one as I might have different reasons to yours but yes they are totally different to 4motions. "Better" is pretty vague as there are several factors when choosing a car.

Not that expensive to mod and HP will vary depending on what products you buy. A de-cat and map should see at least 260ish but it's not all about peak HP.

If I were you I would make a short list of potential cars and then drive them all and see what the pros and cons of each are.

Good luck

Welcome to the OC.

My personal opinion, Scooby screams midlife crisis or chav. (I'm 21)

But i do like the Nissan 350z, Also a car i considered before my R32.

Glad i went with the R

Good we like to get out & meet people, how often do you get together??
I would probably say there's a meet every 6 weeks or so, I'd like to say we can have one organised for the end of august/start September. But I'll see what Chris says as he's the one who sets them up
