That good U think? U talkin about the older model or the new facelifted and improved one?

I have had aspin in the new 2004 model and it seemed pretty damn direct, steering wise, and cornered like on rails. I will accept your point about the lack of grunt low down, but it explodes once it hits 6K !!! a real kick in the ass when the extra cams come into play and keeps pulling hard right up to the red line at 8K cool.gif

Only don side is that it nearly as good looking as the cloverleaf sad.gif

Followed a civic type R today looked a bit silly on its 17 inch rims, no
kerb appeal at all, give me a 145 any day of the week!

It was a girlie driving and I admit there quick, but I wasn`t impressed!

i have drivin one. for about 7 miles. yes its nice and new and Very well built but in the same breath its boring.

but as i was talking to the sales man he said this is the only other car on the road the is like a 145 cloverleaf. im not dissing the CTR, i do like it, but i wish that it had a non-electric power steering pump. So you could get more feed back, it reminds me of a fiat punto new shape ones, with the city mode.

Surely you get the same performance if you spent a grand on your 145 - decent induction kit, exhaust, fast road cams, chip ?

I bet the engine note isn't as sweet as the Alfa either, besides everything else.

usually about 4hr labour job, plus parts.

Average prices seem 600-700 from a main dealer, less from specialist.
You can buy all the parts for about 250 (retail) so labour from a specialist/independent would be much less...

Websites are like a**eholes, everyone has one, and im wary of any bloke trying to direct people into their's.

The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, 'Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride...' And we ... kill those people.
