    well yeah if i could get a second hand car then i would acctually choose the 172 Cup but i know what you mean about the long distance, the 172/182 inside isnt really that different from my 1.2, alough the 182 cup comes with sat-nav which looks pretty cool.

    the golf is a really nice car though, alough id rather have the GTI for fun but if your doing business trips etc then the diesel will work out better.

    oh yeah don't get me wrong, I'd still be very pleased with a Golf, especially that new GTI

    I'm gonna have to get Tom-Tom or some other kind of Sat-Nav for this new job too - my sense of direction is non-existent

    I agree, they are quite boxy! They're a lot bigger than they look too - I parked mine next to my mate's Clio yesterday, and you can really see the difference. VW have been quite clever in designing it by making it look small, when really it's quite a sizeable car.

    I think the Golf GTi on the other hand looks awesome - it's the wheels and the nose that do it.

    I've got a Palm T3 and TomTom Navigator in my car, it's an incredible piece of kit. I can't do without it anymore.

    I drive a bog standard '96 (or'95?) Fiesta, it's the one where the engine sounds like a biscuit tin full of nails. You can identify those things from a mile off, just by the sound of the engine! It was free, so I'm not complaining.

    Before that it was a Vauxhall Nova (first car), which drove a lot nicer...had alloys, and I removed the air filter to give it some more power. It'd do 90 down the motorway without feeling like it was going to fall to pieces, but I wouldn't dare do that in the Fiesta! I had to sell it in the end, it would have had to go to the scrappers in a couple of years.

    yeah you can tell the fiestas from a mile away with their ****ed tappets.

    my mate (spruce_guy that posted on page 3) has a nova project car with a custom built 1.6 engine in it that he built, astra coupe bonnet & headlights and thats all he has done so far. should be a beast when its finished.

    Didn't know about the 260. Makes sense though, given the timing. My favorite version is the Cobra Sebring 289 hard top. Not that I've ever seen one in person. You know there's a company (in Indiana or Illinois?) that's putting 5.0 Mustang Gt powertrains in Miatas? yee-effing-ha.
