    we had a play up till 70 on the m1 and there was nothing in it mine was RRd at 220 but we were neck and neck but when we got home and i took the wheels it felt very very different to my GSi, the power comes in abit later (around 3k instead of just under 2k) and gives you more of a kick in the back the lsd is only good when you are on the power around the corners other wise that can step out, i also found with it that it searched more trying to get the power down (could just be because i know how to drive the GSi)
    the interier is alot nicer and they get 4pots
    i would have one if i didnt have mine put it that way

    Custom built version of a very good handling car with wider track, fitted with LSD as standard, sweet 2 litre turbo. What else would he need?

    Lindsays in Knock usually have an RS in stock - a few months ago they had two on the forecourt, though one looked like it had it's arse raked out.
