    This is what we drive in England :( (cleaned my car today)

    Hey guys, my car is the one thats all wet! It was a sunny day today so i thought i'd give her a clean. See the problem is, that in the UK fuel prices are sooooooooo high that we cant have large cars. So im stuck with my 1.6ltr, which kicks out about 130bhp.

    In the back ground is my bros car too! We have exactly the same car! LOL! (Exacept mine has the bodykit, alloys etc etc)

    Yea i know! Work with what i got mate, if you guys came over to England with your big cars you wouldnt last 5 minutes, youd be broke. The fuel prices are some of the most expensive in the world!

    I shouldnt complain cause I dont have a car or a drivers liscense

    If I got one it would be something like that, something cheap that doesnt require much gasoline. Its expensive as hell here to.

    But I wont own a car for atleast 5-6 years or so.

    That is not a car. I push a shopping cart bigger than that around the Piggy Wiggly when I buy groceries! I wear shoes bigger than that...leather inside and out I might add.

    Do you park that or just put it in your pocket?

    Thats purely it mate, if i was in the states suffice to say i'd have a big engined car. Its just the price of fuel in the UK restricts anyone my age (20) from having a large car, not to mention the insurance prices.

    Peugeot 106 - GTI. They are pretty popular in Europe due to fuel prices. We dont have big cars like you guys do in the states.

    This is what it used to look like!


    I spent a bit of money modifiying it to get it to what it looks like today.

    Haha, its bad mate, a friend of mine my age moved to CA and bought a Mustang ('00) when he was out there, and drives that, and when hes in the UK he has to drive something alot smaller. Its a bitch really, but hey what can you do?

    Well thats what they look like standards, rub strips, badges everywhere, no bodykit etc.

    So, its delocked, smoothed over, bodykit, arches rolled for larger wheels, alloys fitted. etc etc long list of things done to it.

    I've tried but he wont listen, he also has an induction kit on it and a custom exhaust so it sounds loud. Its no faster than it was before but it makes more noise, great.

    Haha mate mines got a custom dual exhaust and induction kit. So it can be quite loud. Still its all good, no point fitting them mods if its not gonna do anything to the engine, it'll probably do more damage than good.

    True, at least your car is done nicely the inside door panel on his is falling off because he tried to install some new speakers but did it wrong. You have to open the window close the door with your hand on the outside because the door panel would get ripped off if you closed the door from inside.
