Test Drives Unlimited aka TDU

2011-01-20 08.25.08.jpg
Bought the MPS knowing I could only drive a Manual for a short period of time,so decided to go out with a bang & buy the most powerful car I could afford at the time & so have had 8 enjoyable months & clocked up just under 13,000miles :shock: The car will be a year old on 19th January 2012 & will be part exchanged via the PCP System for a Automatic/Paddleshift car :twisted: ,what it will be am not sure at the moment,but I still like the idea of another RX-8 so if any of you come across a MKII Auto on your travels etc..... then please let me know :D
The strongest contender is the Audi S3 Image ,but having said that,wouldn't mind another Saab or if I could live with just 2 seats,then the MX-5 could seriously be considered Image

No doubt you will all be giving me some stick over the above choices Image & if you have any other cars of interest then do let me know,but remember it has to be a Automatic/Paddleshift & be able to cope on Trackday's etc..... :D

Short List for New Car for 2012 - Won My Case \:D/

New/Demo - Audi S3 265ps Sportback S-Tronic/Paddleshift - To be Chipped

New/Demo - Saab 9-5 Aero 2.8T 300ps XWD Automatic/Paddleshift - Hirsch Chipped
New/Demo - Volvo S60 T6 306bhp R-Design Geartronic AWD - Polstar Chipped

Short List for New Car for 2012

New/Demo - Audi S3 265ps Sportback S-Tronic/Paddleshift - To be Chipped

Only good for tailgating and will chew through tyres on track.

New - Mazda MX-5 160ps + Cosworth (235bhp) 2.0 Tech Activematic/Paddleshift

Nice but not the car I'd choose with an Auto.

New/Demo - Saab 9-5 2.8T 300ps XWD Automatic/Paddleshift - Hirsch Chipped

Just no, it's a nasty Vauxhall in a frock!

New/Demo - Volvo S60 T6 306bhp Geartronic AWD

Not bad.

New/Demo - Volvo S60 T5 240BHP Powershift

Get the T6.

Used 2011 Model - Mazda RX-8 MKII 215ps 6 Speed Activematic/Paddleshift with R3 Bodykit etc.. - If I can get hold of one in this Country or from Japan

Best to look at and probably the best to drive.

Yep, my dad has a V50 and its a cracking car, to say its only a 1.8 petrol it flys on the motorway. (general around town acceleration is less than impressive).

I would certainly look them over Nigel!, i quite like the new S60, and getting the T6 with a Polestar upgrade would be one powerfull motor!

Nigel, buy the T6 Volvo for two reasons. Firstly, they're very good cars, my parents have owned several different Volvos and they're very good and secondly, I'd pay good money to see a Volvo on a trackday!

The R3 all day long.

If it didn't have to be new, I'd go with an (auto) Mitsubishi 3000GT Twin Turbo - practical, easy on the eyes, and goes like the proverbial off a shovel.

FT86 will be mega money, will be put against the 370z me thinks.

Im not a fan of the megane, its a bit to brash, plus its not that much different to the MPS in terms of hatch back ness.

Have you had a performance saloon in the past Nigel??

Paul's car isn't avaliable with a Auto/PS + I not over keen on the Megane :!:

It has to be fairly new i.e 11 plate or 61 plate onwards etc........ so that 2007 BMW is out,but thanks Robbie for finding it =D>

Have thought of the FT-86 :P ,but I don't think they will be bringing a Auto version to the UK as of yet & if they do,then it would be 2013 or even 2014 :!: after all Nissan don't sell too many 370Z Auto's in this country :(

What about a VW Scirocco 2.0 TSI GT 3DR DSG ABT. I had one for a couple of days last week and it was relatively impressive - [urlw=http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/ ... ?logcode=p]THIS ONE[/urlw] in fact. Also, it's a contender for having the longest model description of any production car :shock:

Alternatively, a Datsun GTR - flappy paddle and not bad round the track :D

Sold up, but did have fun with a 192, leather, sat-nav, crest, strakes, grilles, Toyo 'zorst, 6 speed 'box, anthracite wheels, bonnet struts, K&N, debadged boot.

No pistons or boobies, but still expensive.....
