I'm sticking with saxos because they are so much fun to drive, the parts are cheap and you can do alsmot anything to them =D

As for not getting a VTS, i cannot afford insurance yet hence the 1.4 and not a VTR/S

I think it looks nice as it is, those wheels are good as well ... I know it's not mine, but it's more unique to keep it as it is ... there's so many 'cosmetically modified' Saxo's around, it's as if time hasn't moved trends on in the Saxo community. wink smile

Ford Fiesta Mk4/5 1.25 Group 7 (75bhp)

Saxo Vtr Group 7 (90-100bhp)

Focus 2.0 Group 8 (135bhp)

Why oh why a 1.4 saxo? Sure it's a faster car than the 1.1 but not by much.

Hope all goes well with your mods but make it simple, save the cash and invest in a better car for the future.

I wouldnt put a list of Fords up there to sway him lol... Under powered pieces of trash.

My mates 1.6 Escort had what, 90 bhp when it came out the factory. My Alfa was 120, and now the MG has 107, but is miles quicker than the Alfa. All 1.6


Saxos are good for handling etc, the only problem is that as has been mentioned, a lot has been done to them over the years, and its difficult to make them different.

Elliot, on second thoughts, I reckon you should go for the rally look. Will be a bit more expensive, and harder to live with, but I doubt youll ever get rid of it then happy
