Whilst the mr2 turbo and mx6 quite clearly are fairly Chav, the mr2 at least was a fair handling sportscar for the money...though the mx6 was just cr*p!

my wife has the 1.8i sport mx5 04 plate with LSD, last of the best.

Chewy, she has a black labrador in the front seat of it She must be a northern hairdresser with tweed jacket and gold hoop earings. (country and chav)
Its all horses for courses, the mr2 does about 9mpg (heavy CHAV foot) and mines got just under 300bhp, mx6 is a much better daily drive.

My gran agrees - she's had 3 of them and thinks they're great. She takes the roof glass out to make room for the zimmer.

Wilfinch will be able to give her a blue rinse cut and blow dry, probably get a discount seen as your a forum member.

So what does Logisitc tech support do, do you tell the people in Logisitics to turn their PC off and back on if it stops working?

I think all the S's have a fairly firm ride and I found the seats not too comfy on the S6 I had, as they are meant to be chucked around so have sports recaros in them. This did not help my dodgy back. The quattro technology on the other hand is very impressive,particularly in the wet, but not in the snow I found,(tyres were too wide) so much so that when Audi put it into their rally cars and couldnt stop winning all the championships, they had to change the rules

I bought mine new but lost a shed load in depreciation over 4 years, and have always bought 2nd hand since. It didnt cost me a bean to run all that time, as it was on Audis variable service plan and I didnt do massive mileages

as you say hp the last of the mx5 were a great car, we have a 04 plate 2.0 mx5 , great fun, i think its 145 hp or something but goes well for its size,

im in a very privileged position with cars as i look after a very very large collection of vintage / classic and up to date sports cars for a good friend, so i could never compete with that,they are all wrapped up at the mo but i start getting them out in april.. if i need some serious feck off power,i just grab the keys, or starting handles for some.. yeeeeha
