None of you are even close .

And the spec is as the cars left the factory and it is a real road car and not a race or rally edition.

I liked the 1998 Golf GTi with the 8 valve 2.0 engine with about 115bhp. Not really a hot hatch, just a warmish one. But it had perfect gearing for it's modest torque and always wanted to go in any gear even if not terribly quickly.. Nicely refined as well.

Is it that mental metro, the 6r4? No can't be, that didn't have any kind of interior never mind a leather one.

Is it really what we would call a hatch or some kind of 911 coupe?

actually I think I know what t69 is thinking of but my choice was the interceptor and they are a genuine hatchback (well my one is)

The rear tailgate opens like a hatchback with the whole rear window and frame lifting up to allow storage behind the seats

1969 and had dual circuit discs all round , abs ( or a vesion of it ) - central locking - leather alloys - air con , etc .
And there was an 4wd version.

Plus in that year some had the tuned high compression 6.3 litre version of the dodge charger engine with a touqueflite auto box (one of the best the yanks made)

Ok, I too hadn't heard of the hyundai veloster until I googled it.

Is there a way to forget things that you see? Copious amounts of booz or maybe a rohipnol or two?

It looks like somthing the French would do to a 1 series.

:confused::sad2:
