I have only owned the car for a week and I'm in love with it!
The tiptronic gear box is great fun, when you are in town or in a traffic jam, you can have it on auto mode for cruising around, and when you are in a mood for some power and speed, switch it to manual and off you go!
I have got the older model (95) so it only has upto 4 gears. I would definitely look into a newer one with the 5 gears.
The more I look at the body work, the more I'm in love with it, the amount of people turning around to check it out is unreal, it's as if you are in a Ferrari! My one’s in red, so it's even more eye catching.
It is surprisingly economical on fuel as well, you can easily do 30mpg.
The other great thing about FTOs is that you rarely see one, unlike MR2s or Celicas.
This car is awesome value for money, you more or less gets everything you want in a sports car.
All in all, I am very glad that I decided to buy one instead of opting for an Audi A3.
Question: I am having problems finding out what model my FTO is i.e. GR or GPX etc. It's not mentioned anywhere on the log book, nor in the service history. It is a 2 litre 24v V6. I wonder if anyone can shed some light?
