Well here she is.. The R32's replacement...





I know its not to your taste.... But 225bhp out off the car standard spec isn't bad![
]

Drives Really Really well......

Pics arn't great guys... Very over-exposed the interior isn't really that yucky light grey


Ok it isn't a vw but I feel I have picked well... I have £5k more in my bank account than I would have had if I bought a GTI


I will put my flame suit on now!

looks fantastic imo good choice martyn, and a cool colour,

the only thing is that its a shame ford didnt spend a bit more and but in some nice leather or
half leather dark colour seats, anyway thats only minor and it wouldnd stop me buying one aswell, best of luck driving in it

Best of luck with it. The wheels are emm....well they really gotta go!!!

Interesting how the roof line travels from the bottom of the front windscreen to below the rear light cluster. Very aerodynamic.

Clarkson spoke very highly of this car.

Best of luck with it Martyn !!

So, looks aside - how does it drive/perform compare to the R32 ?

Cheers guys for the comments...

@ Thos...

Well.........

If it was dry I am pretty confident it would keep up with the R32 in a straight line (thats the mk4 R32 now)

However the R32 would destroy it on the twistys....

The Mk5 R32 would simply demolish it on a drag race...

The biggest drawback is the lack of traction with it only being 2wd...

I am going to tune it... Packages of 290bhp+ are already available... So it should be fun.
