    My mate has a smart car ( :roll: ) and he was on about one that had a twin turbo or something. Cant remember for sure though. I'll have a word with him when I see him.

    That rings a bell too!

    I absolutely hated them when they first came out in this country - i'd been to Belguim and seen them and thought they were ok over there in the city but here.... :roll:

    Anyway, my friend took me for a spin in his and it was a great laugh down the country lanes. Had a bit of a play with her sister in her VTS (is that the 8v one?) and he certainly wasnt embarresed. My opinion on them has now changed slighty, I still wouldnt have one but I'd love to see a crazy, mental, powerful one!
