People also register turboed staleys and other imports as the lower models  :grin:

Not tryin to argue but it had gtr posted all over it and was as quick as the 06 plate Audi s3 I raced which is much quicker then the lower level 215bhp non twin turbo skyline



no not trying argue mate just a bit of friendly banter, yea have seen a few cars with fake badges like 2.0 mk4s badged up as r32's and bmw 318's badged up as m3's.

anyway back on topic my mrs loves my/her golf but hates spending on it and i love dinner table talk e.g trying to explain the of side rule, how an engine works, etc etc
