Thanks for the info. I'll be picking it up later this week so I'll go through that before I part with any money. The dealer has the best feedback I've ever seen and they import huge amounts of cars from Japan and seem very picky about what they buy. Forewarned is forearmed and all that. It was only registered in this country at the beginning of this month.
I can remember the Astra Max turbo diesel van out accelerating something like a Lotus Espirit years ago.
Also the Evo 8 FQ400 got beaten from 30mph in 6th gear by something like a Kia Pride on Top Gear 😞
I've taken the plunge, will be here tomorrow and I have 2 days holiday so can crack on with it.
I've had a look and am curious how you got the wires out of the glove box (when you chased it up the A pillar)? Can't see any real way of getting it out... Unless I'm missing something obvious!?
I do recall Saab claiming their Saab 95 Aero was quicker from 40mph all the way to 90mph than a Porsche 911 Turbo of its time in 2nd to 3rd gear rolling take off and a few tests confirmed it was the case.. but 0 -60 the Saab will not stand a chance.
