Summary:

Performance and style Bargain

Faults:

Front tyres wear quite quickly.

Slight leak from radiator, however this is a replacement part and is not from Fiat. Fitted by a previous owner.

Other than that nothing..

General Comments:

This is a seriously good value car, mine is fitted with 18" wheels and is finished in red with black leather so looks stunning.

The car is also fitted with a ECU chip from evolution engineering, as well as a performance exhaust (Marmitte) and 3 bar fuel pressure regulator, boost gauge and mechanical boost controller. The car produces approx 240bhp and 260lbft of torque, and is faster than a standard 20 valve turbo by quite a way..

The ride is on the firm side, due to the stiff suspension and low profile tyres, and it seems to run best on super unleaded. Front tyres are aesy to smoke due to the power and torque.

Overall I am really happy with this car, there are a few stone chips as expected, but as I only paid £1250 I won't complain much, nothing comes close for performance looks and image at this price.. It looks like it ought to be worth £10,000.

The car also has a comprehensive history, which you should never buy without, as well as the red key.

Previous carVauxhall Cavalier GSI

Summary:

Superb sports coupe with Cossie performance and Impreza handling

Faults:

No problems reported to date.

General Comments:

Absolutely stunning performance and handling.

Cheaper to run and insure than the 20V Turbo.

Although lacking that extra 20bhp of the 20V, 195bhp from a 2 wheel drive car is pretty awesome, and the stick to the road is superb.

Overtaking is painfully easy, the 30-70mph time is rapid.

Comfort is second to none, with Pininfarina interior, leather seats and a nice ICE install, coupled with air conditioning and electric toys.

The sound of the engine may not be as sporty as the 20V 5 cylinder, but no one will be near you long enough to admire the sound.
