    Still Miss The Coupe Turbo But This More Than Makes Up For It.

    Well as the title says i still miss the old Vauxhalls especially the Astra Coupe Turbo.

    So i thought i would share some pics of the RX8 that i now have which i am slowly modding. Just got the car back after a interior retrim.

    I love those RX-8's and that looks stunning.

    I'm not a huge fan of the spoiler, each to their own though

    Nice. I quite like the spoiler, but I do think the shape of the mirrors look wrong, sorry.

    LMAO at ****el being censored.
