Just got an insurance quote for one, and its not that much at all.
Am i right in saying they push 135bhp standard or am i waffling?

Any info/past experience would be greatly appreciated!!!

Well if you got a good quote you done wel as they are Imports.

Cheap to buy just very expensive to fix when they go wrong and Jap specialists will donkey punch you in the arse to fix it

I know of someone who bought one and it now sits on the driveway like mine did

me mate whos a mechanic for toyota said to me last night, the parts aren't anymore expensive than non import toyotas but they take longer to get! and yeah the quote is 800 cheaper to what i'm paying at the moment! He also said, you wont find many high mileage ones. also he reckons its a reliable motor cos its a toyota.

3 mates have them.

2 Starlets and 1 Glanza

1 mate has just had a new lump buy fensport with every farking thing done and is nearlly ready (approx 300Bhp)

the Glanza's is being rebuilt as was in an accident and is having lots of toys (should make 230bhp) other one has had a few bits and bobs done all 3 are nice cars.

Andy Stocker went out in the first one when it was running the old lump now for some one whos had a fast punto GT and a Skyline to sit in the back and close there eyes shows you how fast it was. The lad works for rally art so he also knows how to drive

whether its the Starlet of Glanza there both fast cars and also under rated.

heres a pic of one of me mates.
