This mornings drive...

Just had to share the experience this morning as i drove into work.

Driving along the backroards in North Essex on the way to Ipswich, found a nice open road then put my foot down....WOW!!!. This is what its all about, engine warmed up handling feeling rock solid, the way this car handles bends with a grip i haven't had before on previous cars.Amazing!!

Just great fun around "B" roads on an early saturday morning with not much traffic on the road, now i may get up early sundays as well....

Andy

Especially the sweet spot when the turbo comes on song and just keeps going

Fun isn't it I love the turbo in this engine, it's as addictive as VTEC! OK you don't get the note change, but you do get the lovely feeling of acceleration.

Dunno if this is altogether the right place but.......

I've had my car for a few days now and I LOVE THIS CAR!!!!!

I have a 1.8 SE, 2006, 5 Door, and i love the ride, totally understand why some people love the I - Shift and others hate it but that aside i think the cars amazing.

I totally agree that the car just seems to love bends, it's really stable and steady and makes you enjoy the ride even more.

Wish someone would've told me i would've got one ages ago!!

Not got a turboon mine but when the lag goes, so does the car, and like the clappers too...........for want of a better term.

Really love this forum by the way, keep up the good work everyone!!
