Cool Kiddan Guyz

Nice Car + Nice Company (female i.e.) = Good Life

Honestly, if given a choice of Angelina Jolie over Aston Martin DBS. I'll pick the latter any day (well, depending on the drinks i had).

I noticed the mods here are bit like my English teacher and the forum is more family-viewing oriented (no pun intended). But it is a change from the other forum sites which i visit, which normally make you feel like a new kid in school. Noobs just can't survive and the sarcasm is the only mode of talking.

Reminder: less rant and more intro.

So, I'm from Toronto, and stumbled upon this site as I always used to wonder about the car scene in India. I grew up in New Delhi and moved to Canada 6 years ago. I know a lot has changed when i was in school. From red Lancers with a sporty kit being a head turner at my time to M3s blazing the indian streets now.

Before its get boring, I drive acura 3.2 CL type-s with the following specs :

MODEL: Acura 3.2 CL Type S
ENGINE: 3.2-liter SOHC VTEC V6
HORSEPOWER/TORQUE: 260 hp @ 6100 rpm/232 lb-ft @ 3500-5500 rpm
TRANSMISSION: Five-speed automatic with Sequential SportShift
WHEELBASE: 106.9 in.
LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT: 192.0 x 70.6 x 55.5 in.

These are stock specs but I've some engine and suspension mods though.

I can go on and on about cars and myself, but keeping it short and simple (think so) for now.

Welcome aboard.

I am sure you will have a great time here. Especially, since there are many more things than just cars discussed on this forum.

And hey, I am sure a lot of people would be interested in some little travelogue from Canada!
At least I would

Thnx guys, for the comments. I'm suprised no questions about the car or the color just blinded you permanently

PS: it was this or a 99 CL with 2.2 L engine.

Welcome Coodeol. Nice intro there, better avoid references to drinking in future. You get waiver the first time. Please read the forum rules in the announcement section carefully, we are really fussy about it. Now, that takes care of maintaining the English teacher image.

I used to have a 2001 Acura 3.2TL, with only 225HP. The S-type was released 4 months after I bought mine. I had it for 3.5 years until I moved back to India and bought a Santro AT, which I still own.

Welcome aboard cooldeol,

That color reminds me of the dodge neon!

What does the title of this thread mean?

@Rehaan: coincidentally there is a dodge neon with similar color, right by my work place.

Well, mine is factory color and everyone thinks it's custom !

I read somewhere there are only 9 of the CLs in whole Canada with the same color. It's nice to drive a car which you dont see every now and then on the streets.

BTW, they call the color Pimp Daddy Gold and it has grown on me slowly. And the girls just love the color.

Toldya! Now if only you lived in Miami and the neon had a really loud BOV it would be the perfect stereotype.
