UK Carlos Sainz owner (Now with Pics)

Postby stevenb » Tue May 23, 2006 7:40 pm

Just thought I'd pop in and say hello.

been aware of this forum for some time but never got round to joining up...but here I am now.

I have a 1992 UK spec (one of only 440 official imported) Carlos Sainz in Black (best colour :) ) and I enjoy it very much.

See you around. :cool:

Hi,

The exhaust is a Mongoose system.
It's quiet at cruising speeds and loud when you boot it.....mind you...thats because I have the XS-Power downpipe fitted too.

To be honest I don't think it's that good.
The fitment was poor to say the least and although it looks good and is cheap I'd choose an Aussie Downpipe everytime.
At the time the XS was all I could afford.
Luckily it's on my car and doing ok so fingers crossed it stays that way.

Car looks great.. Must be nice being able to purchase a CS =)
And I do love the color.. that is the color that my wife (Darth-Ripley) and I wanted to get.. but ended up getting Red because it was such a nice car.

Enjoy your stay =)

Cheers

Thanks Joe.
I see from your sig. that you have an aw11. 8)

I had an absolute mint condition Sherwood Toning (Green over Gold) two tone MR2 mk1 (aw11). 1986 mk1a. I was only it's 2nd owner. Prior to that I had a mk1b in Mica Blue which was also in fantastic condition.
Great little cars.

As for my Carlos Sainz I was lucky that the chap who advertised it used a picture that was a little discreet and he merely decribed it as a Ltd Edition.....so when I arrived to take a look at it and found it was a CS I just had to snap it up. So I did. :)
Black is my favourite colour for any car.....2nd has to be dark metallic blue....3rd has to be........ :P
