My mate bought this car (Williams 3.) It only had a stainless steel exhaust when he got it and all he has done is change the panel filter on it. We have tested numerous 0 - 60 times and 90% of them are in the sub 7 secs, the best being 6.8 secs. Its top end is 147mph. Is this the sort of performance that should be expected or is this abnormal???

afraid its not quite up to civic type R standards or that 147mph top speed any1 over at cliosport.net will tell you that, granted there quick but a clio 182 doesnt top out above 140mph and wont beat a civic type r its close between them but the civic just has the edge

Well definately a speedo error as their gearing does not allow for much over 125 cant remember the exact figure, still a quick car though and their handling is sublime to say the least

they are quick mate but not that awsome as you make out, i tanned one on the A127 to southend and the bloke couldnt belive when we met up and talked about it, then on the way back we had another go on the m25 and i was pulling away slowly

no way does it do 147, i was pulling away from it off the clocks and mine dont do more than 130-140

nice cars mind
