    I was thinking of fun icebreaker questions to get to know the community better, and this popped into my mind. We all have all these cars available to our disposal thanks to Sim Racing, but what do you drive in real life? What car(s) do you drive on a regular basis?

    I think, as you can tell by my photo, I drive a 2013 Volkswagen GTI Mk 6. It's a blast to drive, but also quite practical, which is great :) I test drove cars such as the Subaru BRZ, Mazda Miata, and Hyundai Genesis coupe, but I wanted to get something that could comfortably seat 4+, and also be able to carry stuff around!

    So what do you drive IRL?

    I wish I could say I drive my RB20DET-powered S13 hatchback, buuuuut the transmission likes to snap clutches and the engine likes to throw alternator belts, so she's laid up for awhile until I can pay to have the trans rebuilt.

    In the meantime, I hoon around in my 1.6L B13 Sentra, complete with a manual transmission that feels like it's made of sponges, an exhaust leak that makes its bark significantly louder than its bite, and the world's most poorly assembled distributor.

    unfortunately I don't even drive a car :( I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler JK with 35's and an AEV 2.5 lift. Unfortunately if I attempted to drive that at any rally speed I would end up upside down lol

    A not so sporty Seat Mii, its a great car though and very cheap for everyday driving. I want to try and get a hold of a Toyota AE86 Trueno at some point as a project car, difficult to find any for sale here in Denmark, unfortunately :(

    My daily driver is 2017 Volkswagen Golf R. My current 2nd vehicle / fun toy is my motorcycle. 2016 Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro.
    Use to have a Honda S2000 for 8 years as my 2nd/fun can. Lots of track time and track supporting mods.
