Rover 200 BRM!!
The 1.8 VVC engine was a delight (equiped the Lotus Elise at the time!!!). Had Exhaust Manifold, Exhaust, Intake, Larger Throttle Body, Koni Adjustable Suspension and was runing on 17" 215/40 Toyos!!

Faster tham my FN2 from 0-160km/h for sure!!

The 2006 silver SE I traded in for it...

With its leather seats and shiny silver paint it still felt like a new car after 3 years. I'm sure in years to come I'll wonder why on earth I ever sold it.

I've only really had one sporty-ish car before this - which was a few years ago now. A black Saxo VTS. It was quite good fun but it was really unreliable and always needing something done, which was all under warranty as it was only 2 years old! It was nippy enough but the engine felt really bland somehow too...

As said above though, I still prefer my bike for the sheer raw feel of it. Civic is the best car I've owned by miles though.

A MK1 Fiesta XR2 which was on lowered stiffer springs and had either a supersprint or a scorpion exhaust.... can't remember which now as it was that long ago, it also had bigger webber carbs on it, all of which were fitted to it before I bought it.

Brilliant wee motor and very chuckable, I have had better and faster cars but never quite as much fun.

S2 escort RS turbo system 2 conversion, 264BHP/270lbs/ft in a car that was 1040KG, no air bags but bloody lighter over 120MPH when it seemed to leave the ground!

It was poor at speed as at 140MPH you lost the speedo and the brakes were not the best! but in your early twenties, when a escort cosworth only had 227BHP and Sapps had 220BHP and 4 star was "affordable". Back then i done a oil change every 6 weeks and used a now sensible £40 of fuel a week (500 miles and that was just leisure, i cycled to work!).

These were the motoring days! ... less traffic, very few/no Gatsos local to me and just the odd plod sat in a 30 zone to keep you pointed :D

Please can i have 1993 back???
