    Will be sad to see my ej9 go, been a great little car, but have been offered the chance to have something bigger, much faster and newer, so couldn't really turn it down :Grin:

    The car in question is a Seat Leon Cupra 20VT 180bhp version, test drove it today and fell in love :cool:

    Will no doubt have another Civic in the future, they have impressed me no end, but for now, turbo power is where its at :Wink:

    this quote is always used by those who have not experienced proper VTEC cars....

    after having a VTEC and a Turbo with both pretty much the same BHP.....i'd pick the VTEC every time

    [jest] but enjoy your poofy VAG :Grin: you'll be back when it keeps going wrong :lol: [/jest]

    AA all the way baby :Tongue:

    Tbh, it's all about how it's been looked after, and this one has been owner by a guy with kids, so i know it's not really been thrashed, it's in mint condition exterior and interior wise, tyres are near enough new, engine and gearbox are tight, service history, it's all good:Wink:

    GL dude. They aint that quick tho... My old boss had one, came back from bowling in my mx5 1.8 running around 150bhp mark and I over took him down a dual carriage way and then went down some lanes then he was no where in sight and he said the next day he was flat out and couldn't go no more. Nice enough car tho :Tongue:

    Coming from a d14, anything is quick lol

    Planning a remap in the future, intake, exhaust, alloys should do me fine

    My mate had one, Stage 1 around 215BHP, pushed you back into your seat, was a great car never let him down

    03 car, 32K when we brought it, 55K when we sold it 2 years on, full Seat service history, monumental amount of problems, doesnt matter how its looked after, its either a good one, or a bad one!!!

  14. Relentless Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    You can get that with any brand of car

    If you like it go for it, they are cheap now, my mate paid
  15. James Rowe Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Yes they do!

    Nah they are nice cars, don't get me wrong, they are pretty quick! A remap will make it go alright!

    i suppose that was kind of my point, i just didnt explain it well enough!! ha ha
