It has been ages since I've posted any of my cars in the Members Galley, and I think its time I did an update.

Way back, many years ago, many of you will remember that I owned an SiR. It was a fantastic car and still miss it.

Soon after I sold it, I picked up a 2003 VTi. Although a good car, it just was not for me. It was very clean, done just a few thousand KM and ..... was very underpowered :razz:
This wasn't the car for me to spend money on, and sold it within 8 months.

Without a car, I rented a Honda Jazz for a little while and I still love it to bits. Sold it within 2 months, but boy-oh-boy those cars are fun little hatches! Can't find any pics but I'll upload em when I can.

Honda, full options and V6 - it was exactly what I was looking for next! Picked up the 3.0L Honda Accord and enjoyed it for a long time.

But I faced the same issues again: I wanted more, wanted more power.

I soon found myself renting a car again (yup, my trusty Jazz) , but this time just for a week.

Today, this is the car I have owned for the longest time (over 1 year now) and I dont see myself letting go of her anytime soon. She's my daily and weekend offroader. Powerful and comfy. She's got an intake that feels just right. I plan on a cat-back soon, and think she looks just right.

No roofrails, no front bull bar, no rear wheel cover, and stickers down the side. Also had the LED's added. I wanted it to stick out from the rest and I think it does... too many prado's all looking the same.... :wink:

Heres how she sits at the moment (iPhone pics - sorry bad quality).

I also have the pleasure of driving this car everytime I head home. Its a fantastic car and is the epitomy of a luxury hatch, love it to bits as well, but only get to drive her a few months out of the year.

Upgraded the headlights and have the roof painted black. Also have a full S-Line bodykit sitting un painted and ready to install. Just need time and some money...

You bought an EP3? :D

I thought the Accords were 3.5, not 3.0. Was that a GCC spec?
