Reliable turbo car: 405T16
It got 4x4, comfort, sport options, and an engine that would scare alot of jap-crap!
Theyre not cheap in Norway, 4 times the price of a mi16 :shock:
But the engine is nearly bullit proof, as long as it has been seviced regulary.
Got a DIMMA 205 gti, and also got a R5 gte...
Loves french cars, and not the dull ones!

Octavia rs turbo!

There You got a reliable turbo flyer....
And it's not a common "red light rocket"
You'll make a lot of bmw drivers stuttering exuses for not keeping the phase.

405 T16 up for sale near me, i know the owners son quite well. Rare as hens teeth, looks rather nice as well.

Edit.. doh! i didnt realise there was a 2nd page to this thread.. silly me.
New motor looks well nice, what's your opinion on it? i've heard lots of good things about these cars.

Fair play, i'd love a skoda, or an Audi S3.

Nice choice tho,

I think the adverts for the Skodas are well funny
If there\'s one thing i do know, it\'s that i dont know much

Lee,

Good choice with the vRS. I had a brand new one for two years, a 51 plate in silver. They really do fly in standard 180bhp trim. Mine was great fun with hardly anyone at the time knowing about them.

Still see my old one about and it looks well. You'll get nearly 40mpg on a decent run and it will top the claimed 146mph top speed (frightened off a BMW driver once on the M62 when I pulled into the middle lane to let him past but he couldn't muster enough pace to do so!).

Very well rated and respected car by lots of Police forces for armed response/training/high speed work. Also can take some miles, lots over 100K.

Biggest pain was opening the hatch in the wet and water running in, also light coloured seats and carpets mark easily - other than that, GREAT CAR :!:  :!:  :!:  :!:

Had no real problems with my turbo cars:

2001 to 2002 Skoda Octavia vRS 3 miles to 24K miles (coil packs sorted before they became a problem)
2002 to 2004 Saab 900 T16S 92K miles to 125K miles
2007 to present Renault 5GTT 36K miles and Saab 900 Carlsson 129K miles
