It has to be fairly quick, 7.5 secs 0-60 and below preferably. only real thing is that is should have 4 seats , my fiancee wants a baby after we are married! but i may be able to get around the four seats. comfort i can live with out!
the evo6 was my very first choice, much prefer the looks! but yes i could possibly afford the car but then you have to keep the thing on the road. insurance, tyres etc... I have just about persuaded myself that its a bad idea. so no more mention of the evo word.
3.2 VR6 engine puttin around 240hp n 320nm torque (if i remember correctly). Nice recaro lookin leather seats. Xenons . Climate, CD , auto light , auto dimmer u know the usual "auto this auto that" rolls on 18inche of OZs
0-60 around 6.5 or so. Top out at 250kms 6 speed manual.
How about a Honda Accord Type R, I think it will have the performace you are after and has 4 doors? I had the same problem, the wife wants kids so I needed more space. The CTR has more than enough room but 4 doors would be better. Will be keeping an eye on the new Accord (hopefully they do a Type R).
Like the look of the mazda 6 but not sure about the performance side.
forest how comes u didnt try orderin the Warrender Sti? I feel sorry for you guys in UK u guys get the detune jap cars. We can get the full jap specs here in nz but not those CTR we dont even get any new ones need to import them. but our Evo n Stis are all runnin on 280hp
Actually I like drivin the E7 but E6 is definately the racer type Evos E7 kinda soften down a bit even have sound deadenin hehehe my friend sold his E6.5 Tommi Makinen. I think he might be kickin himself now
The R32 making 6.5ahha yeh but lets not forget that V6 4 motion aint light n adding on a few more kgs in the R type its gonna be heavier... plus They r not using "Evo" close ratio gear box plus the gear box isnt the greatest thing on earth. perhaps thats where the speed is....Still i have a promotional video on it ... the V6 purrsssssss soundsoo so soso good ..... more on par with Clio V6 actaully
Cdee if u like italian flavour try the 156GTA u will like it . Well at least i luv it its definately fast enough (ok ok evo n sti are faster) but the mid range speed is definately close to the UK standard spec Sti .
i think the best is go drive all of them n take the one u like the best... we can sit here n tell u how great they r but its different when u drive one. Its like Michael Schumacher tellin us how easy to drive a F1 car to championship ahhaha
i think at the seat homepage. i just came across an article on Seat Cupra R they say its big bucks but even Recaro, brembo n wutever are options. The car comes in at 19000pound n option up to 21000 ..... ok I dont know if its true coz i m in NZ but that was from CARS uk magazine
custom fleet, i always have my cars on contact hire. Although those prices are plus VAT. But if your not running it through your business (if you own one) then you can have it on private contract hire.
At the minute loads of companys are doin the curent WRX for under £300 per month.
Try http://www.customfleet.co.ukwww.customfleet.co.uk and phone them up and get a price. The figure I quoted you was on the current model. But the new model will be about the same. Its all based on residual values.
