Well - it is a small world. - I was up at my house over the weekend (have moved out as we're have extensive work done on it) and decided to take a look round at the back - I knew the guy at the bottom of the road had a fabia VRS before - but somehow this look a bit different from before. - and it looked just like techies old car.
Anyway, last night I was out again and I saw him on his drive doing some work on it - so i plucked up courage and blowed over and started asking him some questions - including - if your ever gonna sell - give me a shout. - He then told me he had only just got it - at the point - the penny dropped - turns out he had an accident in his old VRS in france and it was a write off and he bought techies car. - He offered me a spin in it, and all you that know me - know i was in it like a shot.
Fock me - that is a fun car - never felt torque and power delivery like it - threw me right back into my seat more than my coupe ever did - it's really really solid too. - the ride is sporty but still very comfortable and actually it drive much like a petrol car. - handling from the passenger side - is great - I loved it. The 4 pot brembo's work too!
He has some choice mods planned for it to unleash the full potential of the hybrid turbo as the AMD map was a conservative to save the clutch. - Looks like I just found a new best friend!
