Re: New A45S

Theres not that greater difference in weight between them. Its only around 70kg. I appreciate that seems heavy, but its only the equivalent of you having one average sized passenger in the car with you. That difference is reduced to 55kg if you have pan roof on the A45. I think both cars feel heavy,...

Re: The Very Best Hot Hatches?

Absolutely. Theres a 1.6 for sale in a vintage car sales group I'm in on FB. Its a 91 so a late car, and is in decent nick, but its still £3750 and to be perfect will need about 1k spent on it.
Maybe when I retire the wife will let me get one again.

Re: Hi

No, Sanspeed in Essex iirc. To be fair it wasnt their fault it went pop. Those L3 engines had a rep for going pop even when stock. There was an issue with the stock map that allowed the car to run way too lean and that caused pre ignition. Thats what happened to mine. Shame as I really enjoyed my ti...

Re: Hi

I used to have a 6MPS, loved it and tuned it (this was back in '06 when they were still quite new) At one point it was the most powerful MPS in the UK running 425hp. Then it went bang (as so many did on light throttle). Shitty hole in the mapping that casued it to run super lean and threw a rod thre...
