I think I prefer the Starlet in all honesty. Don't get me wrong, the Glanza is nice, but it's just a bit too soft at the front for my liking. :)

Nice in white too!

What are the running costs like on an import-only turbocharged hot hatch? :lol: I'd love one but I think the costs would be a bit scary.

Starlets aren't too bad on the old petroleum! But would be alot worse than your current motor Scott!

Mine can be scary :o

The repairs aren't too bad as it never goes to a garage. I know a bloke who owns a Pulsar and he does all the work on the car for a fraction of the price a garage would charge. So if you can find someone like that for a specific import, then you're sorted. But he also works on other cars. He actually works on this lads Glanza aswell! :lol:

There's more parts for sale on the Pulsar forum than there is on these Fiesta forums aswell, so never short of a part really. They're not quite as bad as you'd imagine though, they really aren't. :)

Which do you prefer Scott? Starlet or Glanza?

going on looks alone i really like the rear of the starlet, but i think the front end lets it down. Then again maybe its just the morretts?

is there much in it performance wise?

I'd have either really as it's the performance that attracts me. Maybe the Glanza has the edge.

I suppose it depends what bits go wrong with it. Sensors, coils, plugs, items specific to the marque etc, maybe even pads/discs? Some stuff you can't really get from a forum and dealers are more often than not a pain to deal with. This is a major factor I was worried about with an Integra. OK the UK dealer should be able to get your bits but what time scale?

As for Juice I fear some diesels would struggle beating the Clio on fuel sometimes :lol:

Whats the scope for basic tuning like? Eg, re-map would push the power to perhaps 160bhp with a boost tweek?

The Glanza is more feminine. I would of bought a Starlet if it wasn't for Fi telling me that she wouldn't get into such an ugly car. Well ok there were many other reasons but meh, I'm happier that i've got the 6 instead.

Some rough stats here to compare it with.

I'd go for a Starlet.

Dont that shit in my thread "my mate would beat yours" blah blah blah. :look:

I like the front end of the starlet but not to keen on the bigg ass, thats why i like the glanza because its petit :lol:

I think i will go for Glanza, more up-to-date and hasnt got a big ass. :|

Im sure if i look at a stunning white starlet i would probably go for that though. :|

Meh :lol:

You can't really call glanzas common, theres two in Doncaster, there's also 2 Lancia Deltas are they now common? :P

The only thing that lets the glanza down is the interior, why didn't they have recaros like the GT? :|
