147 or 156
i presently have a 147 1.6 120bhp. i'm looking at a 156JTS 2.0. The problem is its a test model but it still comes with standard warranty. i'm gonna test it tm but meanwhile just wana hear some opinions.
1st of all, i gotta say this little 147 feels fast at high revs despite being a 1.6. & the engine sounds really fierce. i know this is not true but a pure manual just has that kick there. maybe when we have to work all four limbs, we feel that we're making the car go quicker!
ok enough of the 147. the 156 in my place comes only in selespeed. i've tested a prefacelift 1562.0TS SS before and believe it or not, i still think my 147 goes faster. its like in 1st gear on my 1.6, the revs just fly, unlike in the 156.
so im in abit of a dilemma now. i know there are some here who've driven both a selespeed and a manual. if a manual can have so much kick in a small 1.6, can't imagine the 2.0 manuals. for all the specs on the selespeed, my last test drive on it just didn't produce the same kinda excitement. Maybe some of u here can share yr experiences of both types of transmissions.
