I got taken out in one yesterday :)

255bhp version :)

Above all, it sounded glorious, and as it was bone dry, the handling was quality. Personally i felt it was a quick car, i was wondering what your opinions are on them?

Yeah, i know a 172/182 is not far off

It just sounded amazing, with a v6 behind you :drool:

Was shocked though, it had done 51000 miles, and needed a new gearbox :shock: :0

Not thinking of one dont worry :lol:

Has he had his cambelt changed? As they don't last long! :rolleyes:

As said for what they are there slow, at French Car show this year, 172/82's where all over them on the track! :squint:

i'm not debating that :lol:

Yeah this bloke (robs cousin) is rather minted, has his own insurance company and 12 properties :rolleyes: :lol:

he got the v6 for looks and the noise, even he admits it could have been more, and needs 50 more bhp :lol:

He said he would never sell it, due to the presence and the noise

he is considering a lambo mp 560 gallardo so hopefully i can go in that :D

and he gets all the work done at renault, and yeah the cambelt was done last year i think :)

I think its a great looking car. I'd have one if I had money to burn. There is certainly faster out there but it's not a car all about speed. I'm led to believe if you can drive it properly and not like a nancy it should outhandle a FWD RS Clio quite happily, sadly not many of us can drive properly :hsugh: so it looks worse than it is.

I'll take my in Liquid thank youuuu!

The blue is OK but you you see that on a 182 all the time so it's not as flash!

I'd have one over a 172/182 anyday if money were no object. I'd have more fun and more scares learning to handle the thing. Good times. :thumbsup:

Matt, on another note. I had a chat with a mate of mine with a Scoob and he suggests you get this fitted inside the car as quickly as possible as theres a chance that things might go wrong otherwise:

http://www.google.co.uk/products?hl=en& ... 1&ct=title

You might be arrested by the Impreza Police for not having it fitted when driving!
