Default Noob from Europe

Hello to everyone,

My name is Filipe Dias and I am 26 years old. I am from Europe, Portugal to be precise. I work in Quality Control/Quality Assurance Company in the Refinery Industry. My main interest is cars, beer, food and girls, not in any particular order.

I know this forum for a long time and I am a regular reader. I assure you won´t seem me opening stupid topics debated to death.

Regarding my car is a shitty Miata 1.6 N/A and soon to be 1.8 (Witch I already have in the garage) with a Begi S3 (also bought) torsen swap (also bought). Just need to start working on it.
Thanks and regards,

Welcome. Sounds like a good solid start. Make a build thread, so we can **** all over it with Pony **** and cat jokes.

I know little of Portugal, other than you dudes speak Brazilian and play some nifty soccer. How's it living there?

Already created a “build thread”.

Portugal has been through some tuff times, especially in the last 2 years regarding economics, but slowly is getting together. Regarding life here, lots of sun, beach, great roads, but low wage and high prices. Everything I buy for the miata from the USA I pay about 35% in tax. And our gas costs about 1,60€/Liter. So you can figure. I can let some pictures from the area where I leave. This is in 25km radius around my area.

But in the end, I love my country.

Some views from around my area:






Hope you like it. And now, the best part...









Hope i have your atention
