P.s if I end up with the golf hope you can give me advice on mods ect
Before his rebuild VW had it for a week testing it and it went through 2.5L which makes a Rotary look efficient.

It would be fair to say I have had 5 cars in the last 5 years. The Golf is by far the most refined. It doesn't punch you in the face like the MPS, not as raw / fun as my DC2, more comfortable then my VE and reminds me of my WRX. I think it really combines the best features of the MPS, Integra and WRX.

It is a really really nice car, hasn't really aged in regards to technology and styling. Stock suspension and tune leaves you wanting more but my H&R progressive springs and the tune will solve that for now... but there is a big aftermarket following worldwide so parts are easy to get and not overly expensive by European standards.

The biggest thing for me was I wanted a car that handled great, has power potential with the stock engine / gearbox, big aftermarket following, less cop attention and turbo. So the Golf was amongst the ST Focus, XR5 Focus, etc.

sometimes we need to step back and look at the larger picture.

In 2008 saw me quit BMW to follow my dream of engineering in 2009.
2012 not only did I meet a girl (off P-WRX), I graduated with honors.
-Proof that P-WRX is not just for gay singles.
In 2013 we bought a family home, I asked for Suzanna to marry me and in 2014 we got married.

The journey continues in 2015 with the arrival of Chloe Joanne Salter. Born @ 4:27pm 8/07/15 Attadale hospital. 2.8kg.

Did Suzanna have a black WRX with purple rims?
Possibly 09 WRX or around there?

That's some achievement dude. Congrats.

I've gone from being a 90KG Royal Marine (15 years ago) to a 130KG IT nerd.
I'm just starting my journey back to being <100KG.
I don't have many regrets in life but losing my fitness and gaining the weight I have is by far the biggest one I have.
