    Not had a road one for 7years,with today’s prices I just couldn’t justify/afford having a road one anymore.
    That goes for any “hot hatch” now tbh

    My friend has one, i was really really dispointed with it.
    Didn't pick up like i thought it would and felt very wobbly and lardy going around a sweeping roundabout.
    All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi
    Far from suicidal
    Still I get them tendencies
    Bringing back them memories
    That I really miss when I reminisce

    That's because modern cars are crammed to the roof with all kinds of gizmos.
    Fact: a Mk1 Golf GTI does 0-60 exactly as quick as a Mk6 Golf GTI. Go figure. (Not sure about the Mk7 but that's just as lardy if not worse)
    One day I'll start a build thread. One day...

    I'll be 45 this christmas. I've had my Nova GTE rally car precisely 15 years and it's been on the road (almost) throughout.

    My first Nova was, er, 20 years ago.

    Too old? No, not really.
