    Thumbs Up Here she is!! the coupe turbo :D

    yaaay!!! got her today..... i'm afraid i only got one picture and its on my phone aswell lol!



    Absoulutly georgoes to drive! smooth everywhere. holds boost i think just passed 5000rpm. apparently thats good from what madmonkee to me :P

    Its not as responsive (pulling from junctions) as my old 1.4 though but thats probably because i've spent silly amounts on it XD
    but **** me once you set off it flies! (for me).
    think i had just as much fun with the mfd with the range and constant read out of mpg, timing etv.... lol and cruise control its soooooo confortable.... really happy with it I'll get some more pictures tomorrow using the camera instead.... think its definetly beem modified in the past, the afm cable is definetly long enough to stretch over for a 2.2 airbox :P

    Lol been grinning all day, gf says my jaw is probably gonna be aching tomorrow hehe.

    cheers dont think the autobio will be that big..... majority of money is going to keeping this beast running and i'm very happy with it.
    any extra cash is very little and will take some time to get anything...

    Was that picture taken at the previous ownes house? I'm sure there was a user on here ages ago with a coupe that colour and it was pictured outside a hairdressers - looks very familiar.

    Well done mate - looks lovely. Did any of our tips help in the end when it came to negotiating with the dealer?
