    Riddle...what car is that?

    Let the game begin...

    Re: Riddle...what car is that?

    just four screws = a light one ?
    YES-Clubsport / Lotus Elise / Caterham ?

    Re: Riddle...what car is that?

    Nope. Try again, guys.

    Re: Riddle...what car is that?

    The color seems to be "Ocean Blue" and that's a Porsche.

    Re: Riddle...what car is that?

    Am I the only one that sees the Porsche brake caliper? Surely not. RC must have something more clever here. What kind of car would use a Porsche brake caliper besides a Porsche? Ron says the color matches. But four bolt wheels? Is this a 914?

    Audi RS8

    Re: RS6?????

    Surprise, Surprise...

    He he he he...

    GOTCHA, it's the new Mini Cooper S

    So what do I won? Well, a ride in your turbo in one of my next trip to Germany could be a good idea.

    You know how I get there dont you?


    Hey, It doesn't count

    I was making my post while you anwear.

    I still want my ride

    Here's how I found

    Ride in my Turbo?

    You can have that for free, no need to solve a riddle.

    Right now we have 5*C(!) and it is snowing a bit, no weather for Turbo driving. Last week we had sun and 26*C. Crazy weather. Hopefully it will get better over the next few days.

    When do you come to Germany and where to?

    Re: Ride in my Turbo?

    Maybe untill end of this year I might go there to buy a 420Hp machine, guess waht might be


    The Audi RS2 has also Porsche brake calipers.

    Re: The Audi RS2 has also Porsche brake calipers.

    many RS4's also have them. Porsche 380mm discs with 4-piston calipers are close to 5 kEUR for the front braking system.

    My Cooper S arrived!

    Collected it 2 days ago, and already did 800 kms...
    It's an extremely well sorted car, expecially the handling is quite amazing, it doesn't behave like your conventional front drive car.
    It has a lot of grip and is fairly neutral, but it is easy to flick the tail out, and have some fun.
    The gearing is too tall though, and so the 163 bhp are not felt as they should.
    I will definitely try to squeeze out some additional hp from this one...

    Re: My Cooper S arrived!

    I got mine end of july, I love the car but I'd like too to have a little more power...let me know if you do something.
    Which color is your car? Mine is darrk silver/lapis/grey.

    Re: My Cooper S arrived!

    I'm definitely going to do some mods for an increase in power,I'll keep you updated.
    Mine is dark silver with black roof and dark grey leather interior(almost black).

    Re: My Cooper S arrived!

    Excellent Luigi!!!
    Listen, I have a question.
    My sister is going to get her driving license very soon.
    Would a Cooper S be too much for her as a fist car? I mean in terms of driving, power, etc. Would you recommend a Cooper to start with?

    Re: My Cooper S arrived!

    The Cooper S has incredible levels of grip and really rides like if it were on rails, so it is a very safe car indeed (in active safety terms).BUT one of its peculiarities is the behaviour when breaching those admittedly very high limits, its chassis is pretty sensitive to throttle adjustments and is more than happy to flick the tail out instead of just understeering as most fwd would.
    This makes it highly entertaining, but for an unexperienced driver it would take a little more time to understand the different dynamics taking place, so my advice would be to choose an engine that wouldn't be able to put the chassis through its paces so much.
    In short I would either go for the Cooper, or go for the S with the optional DSC system.
    Your sister will love any of the two, I'm sure.They are really well engineered cars.
