Hi, my name is Rebecca Sweet,
I'm a hairdresser in Lymington. I live in Southampton with my partner Peter Robins and my little dog purdy.
I have always liked cars due to my dad being a banger racer at matchems and other places. He is also a car mechanic, I used to go to work with him when I was a child and banger racing too. Also due to my brother in law (Elvin Lake) who is also into cars and has had quite a few modified cars over the years, we go to shows together and also with alot of his friends and my friends too.
Since I passed my test 4 years ago I have become more into cars and attending car shows and meets all over the place. I go to Silverstone, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Goodwood, Castle Combe, places like that. I also attend little car meets in the area I live in and other places like Bournemouth, Poole, London, Portsmouth, Hedge End etc.
Since owning the lexus I have been brought more into the car scene due to her being the only 1 on throttle bodies. The people at shows who have seen this car on itbs have gone mad whether they own a Lexus or not! Everyone loved her and since posting her up on my Instagram @bex_lex she has had alot of interest even from people over in America! I've had all sorts of messages asking about the car and the mods etc. These cars are so comfy to drive it's unreal, also a benefit is the heated seats for the winter as I'm always cold Also the lexus are great drift cars, very easy to drift and great fun to drive. Also people with this type of car tend to turbo or supercharge them but I wanted to be different and put itbs on.
Here is the spec of the car:
- - Throttle bodies
- - Omex ecu
- - Vibratechnic raving mounts
- - HSD dual tech coilovers
- - Cobra sport exhaust (resonated)
- - Dotz wheels (custom painted)
- - Stripped out rear
- - Custom made bonnet
- - Window tints
- - TRD front lip and skirts
- - TTE rear lip
- - Halo headlights
- - Tinted front and rear lights
- - Oil and power steering radiators
- - Custom manifold
For the car to look the way it does and have all mods done has been by me and my partner who is an auto electrician and mechanic and also has a modified car, also a few companies to help as well which are, Phoenix Automotive Technologies in Verwood, to tune the car including map which is unknown due to more mods been done so she has got to go back for a remap and getting her running, Read Performance in New Milton to modify the bonnet which he made the scoop all by hand!
I have owned 2 cars before the lexus is200 they were, Fiat Cinquecento in black not yellow like the car from the inbetweeners (not modified), the other car was a Suzuki Swift 2002 model with a custom made stainless steel exhaust done by Read Performance and lowered on springs.
I am planning to do more mods to the car like possibly getting cams made or even change the engine to a LS from GM. No one has ever done this before so again unique to me!
I have a car group of my own called Mofo Customs and we sometimes do little meets down portsdown hill while having a burger from Monster Micks Burger Van and sometimes Hedge End and South Sea. We are on Facebook and Instagram so check us out
My alternative dream car is a Nissan GTR R35! They are beautiful to look at and they sound beautiful. The only thing I would change on 1 of them cars is going from automatic gearbox to manual, I love driving manual cars, makes it more fun and exciting and the colour has to either be black or white, those are my favourite car colours hence the black lexus
