100,000 Milestone!

Not a great deal to report on my car recently; it’s been a rubbish month in regards to personal issues, but I’m still making the most of it with my MR2 in our surprisingly nice summer weather. It makes owning a T-Bar so worthwhile!

And of course the point of this blog post is to commemorate my MR2 reaching a nice big milestone – 100,000 miles! Admittedly, only 14,000 of those have been in my ownership the last (almost) 4 years, but it’s worth a mention!

Taxed, Tested and Ready for 2013

With a fresh 6 months tax and a clean bill of health from the MOT centre, my MR2 is now back on the road for 2013!

As I’ve previously mentioned, this could well be the last year of my MR2 ownership. I wasn’t being completely honest when I said that an impending Impreza was the sole reason for me wanting to sell the MR2. Truth is, I rather badly damaged my back in ridiculous circumstances two years ago and the road to recovery is taking a lot longer than I envisaged.

As you can imagine, driving a lowered sports car with low profile tyres and heavy power steering is doing me no favours at all. Even now, driving on my short daily commute is getting tiresome, and I can no longer enjoy the MR2 as I once used to.

But enough of the sob story, I’ll move on to some real updates worth mentioning.

Never Park Your Car. Anywhere. Ever.

Fu**ing sh**ting c**ting bollocks.

It’s hard to put into words the feeling of anger mixed with sadness mixed with rage, but the sentiment above is a mild explanation of how I’m feeling right about now.

Tucked Away for Winter

With the harsh winter months now upon us, and after having braved the last 2 winters in my MR2, I decided it may be wise this year to invest in a cheap dedicated winter car.

So I present to you, my Audi A4 2.6 Quattro!

Photoshopped: MR2-based GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept

So, a few months back Toyota announced they were revealing their “MR2-based GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II” car. To put it bluntly, I think it’s pig-ugly. So I thought I’d see if I can improve it somewhat.
