    Hi all :wave:

    I signed up as you're the only decent Drift forum from the UK that I can find, and phatty and mittomatto are on ZT as am I.

    Anyway, i'm moving over to Rochford in Essex around Feb next year and hopefully, depending on the prices of cars over there i'll be bringing my S13.

    My car's half way from being finished which is rather annoying as I may not get to enter many events over here once it's done. I gave it a good raping before we took the engine out, CA18s are shit anyway haha. Bring on the SR.

    Anyhow, is there many people over my area? I'm gonna know, SFA people so would like to start getting to know some like minded people haha. What's the scene like?

    By my awesome calculations, its 3am over there so sleep tight! haha :wack:

    Welcome :wave:
    There are quite a few of us around Essex and Kent (just south) I live about 15 miles south of the river Thames so Essex is one of my main haunts. Hopefully see you soon for a cold one :thumbs:

    Wicked :D! Can't wait!

    TwinturboCH - for sure, as I found out this weekend with the Lions Supporters, the english know how to drink!

    What's the story with turbos and insurance over there? I was thinking about not registering my S13, and just using it for drift and buy myself an RX3 or something, and show you boys how to really build a rotary, hahaha.

    Insurance can be a pain if you have the wrong company. It's not so much turbo's as young people with performance cars. I am 23 with 4 years no-claims and it costs me £1000 per year full comprehensive on my S14, would be about £600 third party fire and theft. If you have any insurance history (positive that is) then get you current company to write you a letter you can bring over to the UK. I imported my S14 from Switzerland three years ago and because I had been driving it over there for a year, my new UK insurance company gave 1 years no-claims to reflect this. :thumbs: See you when you come over. :thumbs:
