......

Its a wee bit slower than i thought, but it is still std engine wise.

It handles better and is quite controllable with the rear spining out.... quite progressive.

sounds better than i thought

I hate the effect that the blitz DV has on the car

I love the windscreen wipers

i love the rear lights

i dislike the steering lock

and some pics...

Do you prefer the manual box in the Skybus over the auto in the Supra?

the auto in the supra was fuckin brilliant . plus with my little 'mods' 'ahem.... it fired through the gears quicker than most would manage in a manual..

it is nice to have more control of on/off with a clutch tho

My thoughts exactly the comfort factor of an auto is nice but only when you have the power when needed, but I'd stil rather have a manual, like you said more control.

If I had to choose tho Adam, Id rather have the Supra over the Skyline anyday, just my preference.

same here.... the supra is much better looking, my old supra would rip my skylines tits off and stick them in its turbo's when it passed it spinning at 80 or so

diff cars tho.... and a big diff in prices....

i could get 2.84 of my skylines for what i SOLD my old supra for

plus..... its not fair to compare them performance wise.....

supra 3.0 twin turbo - 480bhp
skyline 2.5 single turbo - 250bhp
