well thanx guys, but u have left me as confused as ever.
I think i'll look for the best car i can find and not bother so much with the 1.8/2.0 thing.
although i have to say the couple of 1.8's i drove were alot rougher than that nice 2.0 i had for a while.
Also there are aload of 156's about rite now so im looking forward to hunting around. and as for red, it seems like 2 out of 3 are red so not much choice there!
I think veloce wheels will have to wait for now, most of the cars either have the nasty nasty hubs, or the alloys with a lots of holes (which are ok)
