    182 = Rubbish

    I went out and test drove a 182 this morning and from all the hype banded about them, I have to say I was totally disappointed. My Valver is so much better to drive. Driving position is all wrong, seemed sluggish etc etc. I wont be ordering one. Going to have a look at the new golf gti and civic...

    What a difference!!

    I fitted my magnex full system and supersprint decat last night and the difference is amazing. I had a magnex on my last 16v but with the decat it just pulls so clean and hard. Well chuffed.

    What car to get

    Right ive decided its time to get a new car, but what do I get? Ive narrowed it down to a mk1 172 or a Golf vr6 highline. Im swaying towards the golf especially with its better build quality and the fact itll hold its price better. What do you guys think?
