For Sale : Immaculate Honda Civic Coupe. As far as we can remember in modern civilisation history, human beings have been fascinated by the idea of time-travel. A feat that has evaded us unfortunately, but you have now your chance to get a good feel of what 1996 was like by driving a honda civic couple that feels like you have just driven it out of the Honda dealership! All jokes aside , this car is COMPLETELY stock and COMPLETELY unmolested. Factory alloys, factory body, factory everything apart from the pioneer head unit. This 5 speed manual transmission is in an amazing condition paired with a clutch so forgiving that a 5 year old could drive it with no difficulty. Factory sound system is more than enough to jam to whatever 90's boy band was your favourite. Now, for my favourite part... FULL SERVICE HISTORY! thats right... 20 years worth of paper trail showing every service ... and not even 1 was missed. It also matches the full car history report of owners.. which have been 4 in total. Engine starts better than my g o d dammned audi which is 18 years newer (and the reason why the audi is now gone). Not all is peaches and cream however, with its understandable show of age in its paint but nothing too major apart from a couple of scratches and very minimal paint fade. Don't miss your chance to own a great car in it's full factory greatness, or a completely blank canvas to turn it into a vehicle you will be able to enjoy for another 20 years and pass it down to your great grand children because these cars are indestructable.

Please contact me on 0466250011 for any enquiries and/or to arrange an inspection SMS ONLY. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for taking the time to check my add out and I hope we can find this amazing car a good home.
The last BMW M3 Coupe has now rolled off the production line. The current shape M3 Coupe went into production in 2007 and there were 40,000 units produced. The M3 sedan and convertible units will also cease to be produced in September this year. Press Release News Article History BMW added the M3 to its lineup in 1986 and it remained in the lineup in one form or another through 2013. The first-generation M3 was based on the E30 3 Series model and BMW initially offered it for the Group A Touring Car racing. The road-going version arrived shortly after with an S14 DOHC four-cylinder engine that produced 197 horsepower. In 1988, the company also offered an Evolution model that produced up to 217 horsepower;’ also added that year was a convertible M3. The second-generation M3 arrived in 1992 and was based on the E36 3-Series. The model used a 3.0-liter straight-six-cylinder engine with a total output of 282 horsepower. The second generation initially came only as a coupe, but a sedan version arrived in 1994. In 1995, BMW brought the M3 to the U.S. market for the first time. For the American market the M3 delivered a total of 240 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. This torque-happy engine allowed the M3 to hit 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. In Europe, an M3 Evolution arrived in 1996 with a 3.2-liter engine with 321 horsepower, but the U.S,-spec model was only slightly revised with horsepower remaining at 240 and torque jumping to 236 pound-feet at just 3,800 rpm. The third-generation M3 (E46) arrived in 2000. It made good use of a 3.2-liter M-tuned engine that delivered a total of 333 horsepower and 262 pound-feet for the American market, and 343 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque in Europe. This allowed the third-gen M3 to hit 60 mph in 5 seconds and sprint through the 1/4-mile in just 13.5 seconds. The fourth-gen M3 arrived in 2008 (2007 in Europe) with a 4-liter V-8 engine that delivered a total of 414 horsepower at 8,300 rpm and a peak torque of 295 pound-feet at 3,900 rpm. This engine resulted in a 4.3-second sprint to 60 mph and a 12.7-second run through the 1/4-mile at 112 mph. It also was quite the handler with a 0.95g skid pad run and a 725 mph run through a slalom course.
Just though I'd share some recent but not hot-off-the-press news. From the 2012 Detroit Motor Show, Chevrolet released two concept vehicles designed by and for the younger buyer market, Code 130R, a RWD Coupe and Tru 140S a FWD Hot-hatch. The focus here is on the enthusiast inspired 130R, but the 140S essentially has the same sort of stuff, just in a hatch. AutoBlog.com - More pictures/video GM News For those of you out of the loop, the 1.4L Ecotec engine they mention here would be a variant of the global "1.4 iTi" built into the local Series II Cruze with a variable geometry turbo. The local engine produces a reliable peak torque of 200Nm from as early as 1850 RPM and carries a flat figure through to about 5000 RPM before decreasing to about 150NM at Redline 6500 RPM. Power peaks at 103kW at 4800RPM and carries well through to Redline. Although this is only a concept at the moment, and if it were to be put into production it would probably only be sold in North America, I think it'll be interesting to see how other manufacturers will react to this design. With Honda coming up with a new version/concept of the NSX and Toyobaru's FT-86 design release, I for one hope Nissan come up with some decent sometime soon, other than their electric concept, the Nissan Foria, which was already discussed here.

spankyKong posted a topic in Members RidesI've always wanted an E30 or Datto 1600 with an SR20. Love the 70's-80's boxiness, but they need a bit more go. Decided to go for it. Picked up this beast by chance, got a good deal as the dude I bought it off was going overseas a week later. Complete with Grandpa spec wool seat covers. Its not gonna be a show car when it's finished, but a neat streeter with 200RWKW or thereabouts would be plenty of fun. Can always increase the pimpage as the budget allows down the track.
