    Should A 172 Feel Faster than a 182...?

    Can remember tangling with several 172's off here when I was running the Cooper S. They were not consistent - some definately quicker than others. Also went to R/R day at Nobles with a bunch off this forum and the power outputs of the 172 were massively varied. 145 - 170 brake. My Cooper S...

    172 v's Mk1 XK8

    Not suprised you had the edge to be honest mate but on the other hand I can't picture an XK8 driver been the sort to be giving it full beans.

    Best & Worst car you've been smoked by?

    Worst - Aston Martin DB7 Volante. All over him until I missed 3rd gear. Started to pull back but the fun was over by that time and the speeds getting a bit silly. Best - An Evo FQ something or other. Not sure which one but it was rapid and showed me a clean pair of heels.

    Honda S2000's

    Drove my mates 2001 model over the weekend. Back end felt like it was always ready to play in lower gears. Straight line pace wasn't as good as I was expecting from the best part of 240 ponies but it certainly wasn't no slouch. I think the Hartge Cooper S would have kept up over a sprint and...

    Silver 182 - Norton (Sheffield)

    Heading from Norton towards Gleadless along Bochum parkway at about 9.30 last night. Thought we might have seen some action but it is only a 40 along there so guess it was a wise decision. I was in a Hartge Cooper S. PS - Xenons looked nice.

    Clio Sport - Owler Bar (Sheffield)

    Saturday afternoon - I was heading from Fox house towards Owler Bar. Had bit of a play with a silver 172 / 182 (Don't know which cause it was behind me) I was in a Hartge Cooper S giving it full beans in 3rd and 4th.

    What to go for

    What to go for

    S2000 is not an option. More of an alternative to the Elise rather than an Exige.

    What to go for

    Seriousley thinking about either a Lotus Exige (2001 model) tuned to 190 bhp or a V6 255 cliosport a year old with low miles. What are your opinions? Currently running a Hartge mini and used to post on here a while back.

    My car loves Cold Weather!!

    I am correct in thinking that forced induction engines react better to temperature changes than n/a engines? Better in the cold and worse in the heat?

    1.6......any good

    Not being biased (or maybe I am) but have you considered a MINI Cooper. (Not the S) Cheap to insure (group 8) and 8.6 secs 0-60 / 9.2 0-100kmph. I had one before the S and it was great fun. On the twisty stuff it is very capable. £11,600 basic price and on top of that you need to order the...

    172 owners mite wana look at this!!!!!

    Your right Rich and I wasnt trying to spark anything off. I dont give a sh*t about what power the Cooper S puts out compared to a 172 as mine is modded anyway. I do know this though out of experiences in the past against 172 of different varieties with "duals" I have had with people on here...

    What car should the missus buy

    How about a Lupo GTI? Pretty rare on the roads and they can be had for 8-9 K with decent mileage. My bird was looking into one but ended up going for a 106 GTI mainly because it was 2K less than the Lupo she was looking at.

    Totally gutted

    sh*t Rhys, so sorry to here about this. Cant imagine how gutted you must feel. At least the 172 can make it a little better. Imagine if you didnt have that. Really really really hope that it turns up or that you get a good deal from your insurance company. James. PS If you dont feel like...
