    Excellent... there is always an explanation.

    Sorry to hear about your Renault, Paul...
    Really hope you find yourself a new ride soon, and if so, would you place a picture here?

    I don't think they are making them any longer either... but it was quick, and a speed devil out of this world.
    I used to have one of these. They still make the Tigra but it has changed a bit, its now a 2 seater convertable

    Here is my car. Its a Vauxhall Corsa, or Opel Corsa in Europe. As you can proberbly tell from the pictures, I have done some moderifications, put in a 2.0 16v Turbo engine and changed almost every component on the car. Its pushing out 330 bhp and 360 lb/ft Torque and does 0 to 60 in just over 3 seconds. I am partial to the odd track session, so you will find a roll cage and harness seat belts.
