Well the power to weight ratio is very impressive on the cup (171 bhp per tonne). I just dont wanna waste loads of money on a 172 or Cup though and find performance isnt greatly better than my VTS. How are 172s around the twisties?
172s have are quicker and more luxurious than a VTS but youll have to sacrifice some of your VTS handling. I bought a 172 end of last year and sold it within a month and went back to my 106 GTI as the handling just isnt up there compared to the 106 GTI / VTS.....

ralphy, get a 172 but dont take that video result as what would happen, THAT is the only 172 that goes like that, against a vts thats only done a 1000 miles, think most people here think there car goes lie paddys, but iv seen loads go, and not one yet that could match it, none have ever came close to john like paddys did. just my 2p worth, youd still get beat but not like that.

Its got all the toys you need when stuck in traffic 9which tends to be most of the time but has the power when you get on an open road.
