    Techie's Old Fabia VRS

    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!

    lucky guy its a cracking car. I test drove a 180bhp version and was SO close to buying it. If i had been looking for a car when techies came up i would have been very interested in it.

    small world indeed tho!

    My whole reason of talking to Xavier initially was to make him an offer for the car - I hadn't even contemplated it was THE actual one. - it was when he said - "I've only had it a couple of weeks" - the penny dropped and my heart sank - and i just thought to myself - I'm gonna have to go and look for another one!.
