and its very fast and revs like fook!

and more relaible than 106!

106 XSi's are awesome little cars, loved mine when I had it. Looking to get a Rallye at the moment to smoke around in and generally abuse

xsi's were a Nightmare to find in good nick and reasonable mileage, might get myself a rallye in a few years always loved the S1 rallye's, although a nice white s2 wouldnt go a miss.

Would absolutely love a Teg type R or a EK9, thats the only Hondas i would go for, but my "want" list of jap cars is endless i.e, 200sx, 300zx, Mazda Rx7 etc etc!

i roll my eyes as jap cars are crap imo, allt he ones ive driven are just boring and souless, and the interior is liek sitting in someones basement, all black and dull, ford interiors are a world away imo

ive driven (parent owned) toyota celica (twin headlamp version) boring... that was a 2.0 auto (slow too)

currently she has a 1.4 W reg civic (the boring looking one) its god awfully slow and boring :P

interiors arent always the best in them, but some are lovely, havent you ever sat in a civic type r? or integra?

they aint the cheapest to insure though, but never break so you save money on not having to buy parts like you would with anything else..

Jap cars are uber reliable in most cases. Most of them are sexy as fook as well.

that is like comparing the 1.3 fez to 1.6 si or the rs and i think you will find there is alot of difference between the cars

and the japs will be the same difference what you have drove is not the performance cars so there will be big differences :thumbsup:

and the added stuff you are on about is bhp which will be a huge difference in the speeds compared to basic models

aye but i was on about the interiors :P

the interior is still the same between a m reg 1.1 as it is with a m reg si, maybe a leather wheel more electric gismos and the sporty seats,

i dont need a jap car for speed, theres plenty of other makes that can put them to shame just as easily



anyway, thread clogged over this enough, sorry elward
