This turned into a discussion about tastes and kits, like Marin says. None of us mean to offend, of course =)

THE REPLIES!!!

Martin: The first time I looked at the thread, I didn't post anything!  (so not to offend)
The thread has now had over 170 views and 30 odd posts, most of which I'm sure don't want to offend...
MATE... I'M NOT OFFENDED AT ALL!!!

Martin: When You asked Angus 'What's not to like???' You where opening Yourself to comments!
I ASKED THIS, KNOWING WHAT MOST OF THE UK PEOPLE LIKE... I KNEW WHAT WAS COMING!!! ;)

Martin: As jckf pointed out it's along way from the OTT kits that are about...
INDEED... THAT'S A FACT!!!

Martin: Please don't be so offended, that not everyone loves your car as much as you do...
Yes... It's a VERY clean tidy well done Calibra, as long as you love your car, nothing else matters!
IF I WAS OFFENDED, I WOULD HAVE LASHED OUT, WHICH I DIDN'T...

I MERELY SPOKE MY MIND WHEN I VIEWED YOUR PHOTOS, AS YOU DID WITH MINE!!!
THERE'S NO DRAMA HERE... I'M NOT LIKE THAT...
;)

Note: Use of Bold Print and Capitals, was just to help distinguish the conversation!!! ;)

TBH, i'd have Martin's turbo over most kitted Calibra's any day. I do prefer the standard look though so i'm possibly biased lol

+1

Martins turbo is a head turner when you see how fast it goes past you and the noise it makes. It's also a very nice looking cally in general. Definately clean and it does turns heads... Its a calibra ffs ;D

I like the kit as far as calibra kits go.

I've had 8 calibra's now and prefered the standardish look myself.

Well my avatar is indeed just that, an avatar. Its not my car plus I didnt say I didnt like calibra's with kits on, I prefered the standard look. I'm pretty sure my avatar is DTM of sorts anyway. I said I didn't like your rear lights, thats the only comment I made :)

I've only ever had The Ghost!!!

Almost 6 years. 7 calibras Actually, I just counted them in my head ;D One was a "buy and sell project" out of those, I bought it, fixed literally everything on it, Timing kit, exhaust, battery, heater matrix, tyres, cam sensor etc etc and sold it to a friend. I had a calibra with 18" Wheels and a full stainless system before I could even legally drive!

How long have you had The Ghost? Have you got any other plans for it?

Had it since Mar 2003... So well over 9 Years now...

Interior Upgraded...

Engine Phase Done...

Suspension Phase soon!!!

You Guys in the UK have it so easy, with parts being so cheap, and so easily available...

I think you're taking things a bit personal mate with your "real men" comments.

YOUR car was put together in YOUR eyes the way YOU wanted it, and not everyone is going to love it as a package. Some people may like some parts individually, some people may like nothing about it at all. Me personally? I like the headlights. Thats it.

I applaud the effort thats gone into it, and I applaud your enthusiasm, but you gotta take the rough the smooth, dude.

Pure quality! :D

Chav.. the 3 plugs are not what you describe, because there is another 3 that are the ones you say.

I quite like that Calibra tbh, can see alot of people have had a dig at it mind.

Eddey mate I know what your saying Ive had two Calibra's in the past and first things I did was body work. In my eyes the standard Calibra does look dated but needs little work to give it a totally refreshed look. I'm guesing your a little like me in your early 20's or something ... over here the calibra has sort of fell into the older guys ( :p :p don't take it to heart ppl ) sport car catergory now cause insurance price's deter younger drivers.

personally if I lived in Aus tho I'd have to make the most of living so close to Japan. :D

I actually like "The Ghost", a lot of hard work & effort has gone into it & think it's payed off very nicely.

I fall on the side of absolutely loving this car!!! IMO it is awesome!!!  But it is just my opinion and that alone. I am not the Calibra God and nobody else is either!!! Standard cars bore me and "Batman Kits" make me want to puke!!!  But The Ghost is neither.  It reminds me of Kylie in a Cali!!!   :P
