Does it have a proper engine or is it still a 250cc turbo?

:wave:

I like it, sort of. :lol: ;)

Too many issues with the roadsters for my liking, and that gearbox is inexcusable in anything more focused IMHO.

I'd quite like one still, may get one in a few years and put a proper engine in it. :whistle: :thumb:

Coupe looks better and i would only stomach it with a v6 and manual box, like the concept version. That cost 120k, so (Oops I said the F word) that!!

We got one for my wife, not a Brabus but I do wonder if it's been chipped as it really doesn't feel slow to me - proper little rocket and great fun, I certainly steal it whenever I get a chance. As for my wife I must have finally ground her down, whilst she used to have very little interest in car stuff she actually said the other day that she wondered if she should buy it some of the Brabus alloys - good girl :lol:

Fool! She wants something and is duping you into believing she is becoming interested in cars :pokefun:

The brabus alloys are heavy, IIRC you have spinlines on the car now? I have the same wheels on my car - they're very very light, but unfortunately the fronts are only wide enough for 175's. :( limits tyre choices somewhat.

But weigh alot, and the laquer peels off them quicker than a gearchange... :lol: :whistle:

remapped they can make 120bhp+ though, which is nice. B)

I did notice the laquer bubbling/peeling, that car was filthy when it came in and was the only thing i washed on sat because i wanted to get a good look at it :loser:

It must have take half an hour to un freeze the pressure washer :blink:

A bike engine and a sequential box would do the trick :thumb:

Nah, eats clutches - not enough torque - not as quick as you&#39;d think etc etc..

What it needs is a proper 4-pot from a car with a proper manual box. Fear not, I am on it shortly... :lol:
