Im getting bored of my car, i know ive only had it 9months but i miss having a petrol car, ive been out test driving a few fiesta (ST150) and the Lexus IS200 sport. and im supprised to say that even tho they both have more power than my VRS they are infact slower. I settled for the IS200 and I have to wait until tomorrow to find out if i have been accepted on the finance side.

its different from the normal IS200 as the sport has a 2.0 150bhp engine, boot spoiler, black out rear windows, its 20mm lower, and has a different slip diff.

there are to reasons i want this car.

1.its looks
2.rear wheel drive

any feedback about this car would be great. i took a few piccys after the test drive for you to see.

I like it mate, executive laugh Are you going to do anything to it at all? It looks lovely like that, maybe a set of 18 or 19's wink


Its got a bigger boot than your VRS, does that mean your gonna be buying more guns wink

your right!

the boot is huge!

i could fill half with ICE (see pic) and still have room for my rifle spare clothes and a pack of jaffa cakes laugh

If I do get it i think it will stay standard on the looks side of things but i have seen these with superchargers and turbos smile I forgot to mention its a 6speed manual. for some reason it has budget tires on, they are new but if im spending all this money on a new car i want better. I told this too the guy and he said he will fit Brand new Michi's or conti's on it for me happy

Pimp. Altho IMO they are a little bit slow for what they are. For that sorta money theres things out there that i'd prefer. But this is what you have chosen to spend ur wad on and its different,not many about and i love the way they look.Engine lets it down tho for me. Beats the skoda tho. Id rather own the IS than the skoda any day tease tease

They are gutless which is a shame cause they are lovely looking cars.

I have wanted one of these for soooooo long but a bit to expensive for me. its already been said they have a big engine but no real power to show if the 157bhp it pushs out. still a fantastic car
