Hi Astra owners, long time no see - Hope everyones good
Since my last astra ownership I've been in company cars, currently a brand new mondeo tdci - nice enough car.
However. Boredom has started creeping in and tbh the mondeo isn't doing it for me speed wise so I've started looking at other options.
So usual thing-
5k to spend. I need straight out of the box speed and handling. Sub 7 secs 0-60 essential, the faster the better. Needs to be reliable, less than 8 yrs old and parts reasonably priced. Insurance and fuel costs not a major problem. Nothing French!!!
Having looked around the only car meeting the above is a civic type r. I'm test driving two tomorrow (in between Porsche shopping with my boss ).
So just two questions really...
Firstly, can anyone give me experienced opinions on the ctr? Driving experience? Things to look out for etc
Secondly, has anyone got any better ideas?!
