    just thinking, why do ej9's and ek3's get so much jip for being SOOOOOO slow? for what they are there pretty good tbf. there not the fastest thing in the world no but, they are as fast and faster as a 5th Generation and 6 fiesta zetec s and a polo 1.4 (100bhp version) and i can think of a few others and they don't get alot of jip for being SOOOOOOO MEGA slow. i know they arnt rapid or anywhere near ek4, EK9, EP3 status but for a 1.4 and 1.5 VTEC-e they hold there own tbf. rant over, thanks lol :cool:

    i had a ej9 and even though it was ssb it was way way way too slow for me (someone told me the colour made it faster :Grin: )

    I've never heard anyone say anything about EJ9's being slower than Zetec S's etc

    Reckon the 4th Generation Polo 16v (100bhp one) would be quite even though, maybe even a tad faster...

    I've just bought one of these for the wife for xmas and trust me they would wipe the floor of both the ej9 and ek3!!

    being able to call a car slow really depends what your used to driving at the end of the day

    can't say i've ever heard anyone giving them jip tho
  11. Stokes Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    I don't know if its mine but a 100bhp polo wiped the floor with me.
  12. Andy Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Yup, fast little fuckers!

    Was trying to be nice about it lol, 100bhp 4th Generation polo's are for sure faster than EJ9's :Wink:

    my ek3 was pretty nippy beat a golf 1.6 with ease :Grin:
  15. Ringy_01 Top Contributor ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    yeah thats what im saying but whoever i talk to just takes the piss, my ek3 kept up with a totaly standard (other than backbox and air filter) series 1 rs turbo escort which i was reeealy happy with, for a 1.5 they are great in the fact they are quite nippy for a 1.5 and hold there own AND you can still get awsome MPG for everyday. nobody seems to see it like that though. i carnt realy get what im saying across but i know what i mean lol

    someone round by me has one with loads of headwork and cams ECT ECT FUKIN rapid lol
