mine's a 2.0 auto... All i can afford at the moment. But they are really nice to drive, have a 'power' mode if you want to have any power at all, but genereally i'd say go for it! petrol consumption is reasonable and with the right little extra's can look the part too.
Why's it 2.5k to insure a gtst? Are you particularly young or something?
24 mate, A-Plan wont touch me
if i was 25 I would be so much better off (long story but right now I dont have a car and 10 people with MGs have offered to lend me one, but thanks to my age I can't drive another car 3rd party... which is just infuriating)
As with any 2nd hand car, it will pay to get a pre-purchase inspection done but if that checks out.... why not?!
Just be aware they aren't the most economical, best handling or fastest n/a car on the street, but they will go forever if treated right!
Also, your obviously quite familiar with the RB (considering you already own one) so if anything does go wrong, you should be able to fix it quite easily and cheaply
A car with an RB25DE will be much nicer to drive than a car with an RB20E or RB20DE, not that there is anything wrong with the 20E / 20DE
i have a 2.0 manual r33...sound nice. look the part, only conceptua have parts for them but why you bux from anywhere else unless your crazy lol...but fuel consumption is bad mine does around 45miles for 20quid of fuel and thats driving like a grandad lol, my mates and few other 2.0 i know do the same mpg as mine...its a big car for 130bhp 2.0 to move lol...so its not cheap on fuel as people make out...
iv driven 3 different imprezas running around 300bhp,2 tuned celica gt4s, a 2.8passat, galant twinturbo and na, volvo t5 ex police remapped and theyve all been cheaper on fuel then mine...
yep thats awful MPG! i have an rb25de that is litterally miles better than that and my brother has an rb20e r33 and that averages 26-28MPG with mixed driving, you may want to have a little look at that dude!
I was wrong...checked it today on normal driving it does like 50-60miles for 20quid of fuel
my mates rb20e does same...but on motorway its fine i can do like 50miles for a tenner
is there any way i can check if lambda is going???
mine does seem to pop a lot of very bright blue flames very easily..
I do put in v-power only as I believe most imports run better even though people say ts not needed on a standard na ....but you can actually hear the engine noise difference between regular and vpower so since 6months ago iv only been running v-power only....but when i checked mileage im getting same mileage wth both fuels for 20quid so in a way vpower gives me more miles unless i put foot own then it takes more then unleaded...but it runs a lot smoother with vpower
