Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
clinging onto youth at the age of 40!

Is that one of those Skylines?

Always fancied another powerful rear wheel drive car and didnt fancy paying BMW prices for an M3 or the like.

Wide boy, Christian, fancies himself appearing on Dragons den in the future no doubt. Most likely has had his nose broken in the past a few times.

Driving it

Very good fun for the money, definately not for youngsters who've just passed their test, it could definately prove fatal in the wet. Treat with respect.

Simple, its not that big a car at all.
