    I absolutely LOVE them. Always wanted one, the sounds just amazing especially if its been tuned. My first car was a Fiat Bravo and I bought a Coupe engine for it as was going to make it a little track day project car but sold the car. Will defo do it one day though.

    Well reliability wise if it been owned by a true enthusiast and taken care of properly they are good reliable cars, but if owned by someone who just wanted a fast car i would stay away, as Fix It Again Tomorrow will apply with expensive cost.

    The interior is nice to with the panel going across the whole interior, hope you know what I mean lol. I seen a 380 hp one racing before and the noise sounds like thunder, was waiting for the floor to crack, beast.

    Im not to sure if I would swap my S3 for one as running cost seem quite high and mint ones are expensive. You can get some for 1000 - 3000 now but the LE model, think with 6 speed are bit more.

    Not my cup of tea!

    over 300bhp through the front wheels on an old chassis like that can't be much fun, especially in the wet! My standard Type R with 200bhp was a handfull if it was damp!

    The engines are pretty good though, great power and sound.

    Ye do agree. Standard they are pretty good at handling 225 hp as they get LSD's as standard plus Brembos

    I had two 20VTs some years ago and absolutely loved them.

    The second one had been considerably tuned by PowerFiat and was churning out at least 300bhp (conservative estimate). In the legendary 3rd gear, this thing would munch most things on the move:





    I'm been happy with all the cars I've owned, but this is the one car I'd take to the grave with me!

    The general durability and build quality are a lot better than you might expect too.
