I have to say very drap and boring in the dry horrible sounding engine abit lacking compared to type r. Very unpredictable in the wet I have an mr2 turbo running 350 that much better to drive in the wet. interior has gadgets but feels and looks cheap rattles no boot space to get anything in. All in all not very good

Now they are not really my cup of tea but very interesting comments as the press seem to really rate them

Been back for some rework

As I'd already said I wasn't happy with the wheel colour so the body shop agreed to redo the wheels and here are the results hope you like






Look loads better in my opinion also tidied up the rust number plate screws too

Cheers Daz
