Example #1 :
I have played once with a vts running down the hill of Penteli mountain. This rout is extremely familiar to me. Poor saxo guy is still looking for me ...
Example #2 :
a modified Toyota Starlet (glanza ?), ate me alive... I couldn't do anything. This was a wrong decision for me.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">147lover BEWARE! Argiroupolis and the surrounding areas are full of turboed Toyotas. Never try to overtake a Toyota at this area, even if an old lady is driving. There is a Toyota tuning garage there that have tuned everything that has the Toyota badge on it (a friend works there, i know.)
Patrick, the Starlet 1.3 turbo was never imported in Greece, but there are many of them (from modification) on our streets.
Greece is also full of Saxo 1.6VTS and Pug Rallye/GTi. They have about the same engine like ours (120Hp) and they are 350Kg lighter, so i keep away from them too, although i believe our bella is faster at high speeds, she is more stable at 160+ Km/h and corners better at those speeds too, compared to Saxos. Tuning VTSs and Rallyes is a common habit here too. Many of them have about 160Hp. Bad thing is most of their drivers are about 20 years old, with no experience, and their classic mistake is braking during a corner. Mortal mistake for a Saxo.
