Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I had a 09 plate Cooper S as a company car for a few months back in the day and I loved it, although the harsh ride (19s) wore thin after a while.

I did drive a JS Works and will admit, it as absolutely hilarious and almost as good as the '82 911 SC I drove once.

But not quite.

My other half had a couple of 500 1.4 Sports when I worked for Fiat UK 10 years or so ago. They were great fun and she loved them, but I imagine they feel pretty dated now. I'm being reminded lots that she really needs a new car sooner rather than later, I asked if she wanted a 500 Abarth as I'd seen a cheap lease deal and she said no she wants a MINI. I was looking at a friends wifes new Clubman last night, it seems really nice but flipping huge!

An R53 Cooper S is almost certainly the only way I'll be able to afford a supercharged Chrysler

Some interesting upgraded 'retros' here . . . ignore the 'robot' voice-over.
