Was not impressed by the general standard of cars to be honest...

I never drove anything i have to point out first but i sat in...

Pulsar GTI-R ...Was one of the nicest inside and felt really good to sit in,very well laid out and comfy..BUT the clutch was rock solid and the gearbox was crap.Changing from 2nd to third it just went in 1st again! You had to 'Place' it into 3rd.Not like a normal car.Insurance 1400.

Celica GT4-Very nice to sit in but was a bit to much

Mitsi FTO-Look well nice in the flesh especially in black! Inside wasn't as bad as people make out.Might look for a 2L MIVEC manuel when i sell mine.Insurance 1800

WRX Scooby-Now this impressed me Felt most like sitting in a normal car out of everyone i sat in! Clutch was light without being to loose and the box was great! Shame the insurance is gonna be 1800 I could just picture myself moving off in it without any trouble and awkward feeling.

MR2 Turbo-Felt REALLY low and again the clutch seemed hard and creaked like crazy which put me off.Still a possibilty as the insurance is only just over 1k

RX7-MINTED Was way to expensive though

I am gonna ring Flux tommorow and see what qoute i get on a WRX before i sell my car next week.All qoutes are from Elephant.

You can tell what a clutch is going to be like just by pressing it down Ian.The pedal on any astra and corsa are light as a feather which is exactly what there like when driving them.Hard to explain really.I can't be arse with a car that is a pain to drive in heavy traffic

Sure was Adam! It was sold though mate White with chrome 19's on it was mint!

Kolin i shall try and get a better qoute me lad

its harder than the corsa one but not anything tragic but i have felt the clutch on a gtir with paddle clutch and its very stiff so either down or up, no crawling in traffic gearbox wise its better than a vauxhalls in my opinion

my old Pulsar Gti-R had a kevlar clutch on it....lets just say after a couple of months driving that my left leg was twice the width of the other one....

it takes a bit of getting used to and getting stuck in a jam is tiring but IMO was well worth it for the fun i had with the car....
