    What do you think? It's a lot of fun, standard at the moment, but who knows what the future holds for it :-D

    Always liked these - I have considered selling the S3 for one but decided against it in the end

    They look fabulous - what are the performance figures and handling compared to the s3 ?

    287bhp with similar torque. I'd say I could launch fast in the S3, and got more of a kick in the back when the turbo kicked in.

    But this thing pulls real good, you don't get as much of a kick, but it feels more smooth and controlled. When you look at the speed you wonder how it got there so quick. On a piece of road I know very well, I can get about an extra 10-15mph until the point where I have to brake than I could in the S3.

    Brakes are superb on it.

    Handles great for a standard setup. Touch the gas going intoa bend hard and it gracefully induces a touch of over steer and drifts great /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Wow, very nice.I like the photo of the alloy with the brembo in bronze. top, are you comparing this performance to a standard S3 or was yours tuned at all? I must say I like the 350z and also the RX8 and of course my S3!!

    It was modded, suspension, fast road setup, chipped etc. Pretty quick.

    It's an 04, but I took my time buying it, lookd at loads, this 1 was near imaculate with just a few small stone chips on the bumper. Rest of the car is unmarked.

    Its a UK, GT pack with most of the extras, other than sat nav. Got it for an absolute bargin, considering my budget was 25k cash. I saved a considerable ammount on that. Plus it had the plate (£2200) and the wheels and tyres(£3000!). The guy has spent in the region of £35k on this car and it is only a year old /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    I was supprised with the mpg, getting about 24-26 round town, and about 30-34 at about 70-80mph on the motorway.

    Very cool car Pure, I would have been thinking about one of them had it not been for the rather hilarious repair bill... mine would need to be black though I think.

    PHAT!

    I've loved those things since they came out...

    And I think it looks awesome in silver. The only colour I've ever seen is the Orange thingy, there are two locally.

    Silver is definately the best colour in my opinion /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Great buy, have fun! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
