And I bet you'd be wrong. Audis are just so common here, sometimes I even don't notice one when I cross the street. Only time I notice them when I drive, because if there's anyone on the road who could be described as a "total, complete cock" they usually drive an Audi.
honestly, the more you post, the worst you sound...
i drive a great spectrum of cars and thus my on opinion is made, unlike you...
got your... leicence yet ??
as for the civics itself, they feel top heavy, the gear shifts arent as thight as they should be, the gears are long and they all need a re-map. ( civic are built for tuners to waste all their money on them ?? )
reliable car, but by no means quick enough to be owned by myself.
i didn't even notice that post. but aye, tristan hates everything, agrees with nothing. the kind of guy that would sit at home during halloween with his lights out so kids think that there's nobody home.
You do realise I was saying the Civic shift is good, don't you? It wasn't me hating things at all for once. Sure, I don't see the point of spending more than a grand or two on a FWD car ever, but the shifting of that Civic is, by all accounts (owners, journalists, racers) pretty darn awesome.
Personally, I was aware that you were being positive. Still doesn't take away the fact that a road legal car with a body kit (how ever lesser or tasteful) and alloy wheels on is rice, regardless of anything.
It's much, MUCH nicer than the GP. I don't really see so many similarities either: high rear lights... erm... little window just behind the a-pillar... around 4 meters... but the Ford is really more modern, you can't deny that.
And the interior: I suppose you don't like the Aluminium looks. I didn't when I first saw it, but now I think it's if not beautiful, very modern and distinctive.
BTW I think that the stripe round the dash (that you can have in different colours) in the Punto is really ugly. And will fall off.
Yes, the reliability/build quality in new Fiats is better than ever, but some years ago it was like, say, being raped by a radioactive pedophile, now is slightly better, but miles away from the Germans.
And, be careful, I'm Italian, and despite that, I'd rather eat my money than buy an italian car. My mum has got a Daewoo Matiz: she could have bought a Seicento, but didn't; my dad has got an Opel Astra: he could have bought a Stilo at the time. I now have a Fiesta, and I didn't want a GP. It's not that we are xenophile: italian cars aren't as good as other European cars. Period.
If you start buying Track and Race Cars magazine you'll see even more of me, as my racing club is now sponsored by them, and they are going to cover races, do car tests, and they want articles such as how a rebuild of a late 90s F3 car went
But Jaffa Cakes and Autosport remain my true passion. Obviously.
