This went quite well on another site

If BMW didnt exist what car for the price you bought yours would you get instead.

Personally i think i would have gone for a focus ST

Porsche Boxster S (I might be pushing my budget a little there) or a FD3S Mazda RX-7.

Hmmmm???? Scooby? Or evo 2 RS (could get a 4 or 5 RS but I like the rawness of the 2!) maybe at a push (but it might be out of budget slightly lol) a R32 skyline GTR!!!
Or a golf V6 4Motion, one of the last Corrado VR6 storm additions! A mondeo ST220.
There's loads to choose from! Even a A8! Maybe a S8 if it was in budget?? A S class merc! The list goes on and on!!! Wink

I was the kid crammed in the back of small hatch backs, so the kids comfort was a priority when they hit teenage years.

Only a few more years and they can drive themselves!!!!

IS200 is a very boring car! Slow too. And the traction control turns itself back on for some reason!?

my mates dont seem to have problems with traction control coming back on as hes always playing with the back wheels

i know what you mean about being slow but they do fit 2jz's in quite easy with them being made by toyota

the MK4 i had was nothing but trouble think everything broke on it and think it was only the aircon left in mine that did work lol

An IS200 with a 2JZ would be awesome!

I used to have a mk4 golf too. Worse handling car I ever had! Then I spent about 4k on the chassis and it was one of the best! Laughing

The mk5 is a much better chassis but they still seem to have that Lego feel about them. I.e the VAG group has a box of Lego and they just pick bits out to make the seat, skoda, VW and audis

thinking bout it if it had to be standard i would probably have the toyota altezza the turbod version of the is200

but 2jz in them cars are cool as hell frenchy competes with a altezza with 2jz lump it lights up the back tyres for fun
