Heres a good idea, what are the things that make you love the car you have?(including mods)

and what do you wish your car could do differently?(and mods could change that)


I love on the mk6 escort
Exterior looks (for a mid nineties hatchback its the most curvy and good looking car available, and the GTI back bumper is one of the best back bumpers ive ever seen)
Interior looks (again,for a mid nineties car the dash is very shapely and good looking)
Engine (very thrashable,reliable,and easy to work on)
The car as a whole is easy to work on

Things i hate
Dodgy inaccurate fuel gauge
Brakes,theyre god damn shocking as standard but easily uprated
Modifying can be a pain in the ass with it being difficult to fit modified parts,such as replacement speakers (altho this is partly the fault of the autoleads companies who make the speaker adapters)

Everything else is perfectly good such as the handling,comfort etc

Things I Love:
- How shiney and clean it looks just after it's washed (major photo opportunity, everytime)
- The popping of my exhaust (think i've got a hole somewhere, but it sounds cool lol)
- Wheelspinning in the wet
- The handling & driving fast on windey roads that I know


Things I Hate:
- The window wipers either wipe too fast or too slow, never just right
- The sound of the engine (stupid tappets/cams smack)
- The cost of running it/repairs
- The speed (0-60 needs a calendar to time it)
- The wiring - Crazy Germans can't do car electrics effciently
