    I lurk the forums occasionally. Not got a VR4 but an FTO with the 6A13TT engine conversion.

    The decline in numbers is the same on all forums I think. I know the FTOOC forum is a shadow of what it used to be.. everybody moving onto the social media groups. Like has already been said, it's not a good place though to search for information or to get how to's, etc. from. Forums are invaluable for that

    Still got my VR2 (LHD) but not driven it in a few years... this is how it's sitting (yes that is a little ding in the lower back corner)


    I have a daily Mazda 6 2.3 Sport


    And I bought a proper VR4 cold-spec with 87000kms (it also has the original sunroof). Only driven 200+kms in the last year. Been slowly building it to factory+ spec.

    I'm here and still lurking around, keeping an eye on the emails etc.

    Still working on getting my vr4 back on the road but time and money is against me. One or the other usually.

    My daily is a 2006 VW Passat tdi

    My Legnum is long gone, but lives on in very good health in Germany!

    I still have my Evo 1. now fully restored and a hoot to drive as always.

    BUT, fast estates never left me. Currently driving this..

    F31 340i Complete with MPPSK.





    Now a brief bit about the power plant. 3l Twin Turbo...B58. Yep that's the BMW engine found in the new Supra. Its now deemed as the new 2JZ engine given its tuning potential. Its a closed deck block allowing high boost pressures etc.
    Mine has the BMW offered Tuning and Sound Package. MPPSK, currently sits at 360Bhp, the sound pack is a valved MPerformace exhaust. Its current specs puts it ahead of all the previous generations M3's power wise. The closes to an M3 Touring that was never made! (until now)

    A Stage 1 map now gets these over 400Bhp. A large based downpipe and intake sees Stage 2 approaching 500Hp with 700nm torquies....so I have 6 months left on warranty until i go down that route

    Still here somewhere........
