    You should be able to pick one up for about £4-5k easily enough, I have never driven one but I would imagine it would be quite nippy but obviously if you want breathtaking power you need to look at the GSI but you wont get one of those for £4k.

    What are you driving now?

    I've got one and dont have any complaints... Ok, I moan about wanting a turbo but that's just me. And yeah, you should be able to get one for that sort of money.

    i was originally looking for a 2.0sri but ended up getting the 1.8 as was cheaper to insure/run, also read a few ppl on here say it has a quicker 0-60 than the 2.0 which surprised me,
    i found that the 2.0's were cheaper to buy than the 1.8s tho, i think they'd b a nice car, quite tuneable aswell from what ive read,

    I got my W(2000) 2.0 SRi about 6 months ago for just under £5000 but that had the full irmscher kit on it.
    Its a nice enough car and quick enough (depending on what you have now?).

    The only reason the 1.8 is quicker to 60 is because it can hit 60 in 2nd gear unlike the 2.0 which needs to be changed into 3rd but its a total myth that the 1.8 is faster.

    Handling is piss poor but that seems to be cured with some suspension mods. Im still saving for my koni kit!

    the 2.0 is a tunable motor, but watch for cracked manifolds, seems to be quite prone to this, and a few were return to be rectified under warranty

    I was waiting for someone else to get some pics up before I did but what the hell......



    (standard but with irmscher kit and grille)



    With a few choice modifications they can be made a hell of a lot better. The best thing I did was lower it - makes the hadling sooooo mcuh better....
