I have a 230 BHP GT with Bilstien suspenson, eibach arb's and a quaife LSD, AND a 2.0 TS GTV....
you know what....?
they are equal in my eyes, the 155 bhp in my PH 1 GTV is just as much fun...also spent half hour today driving my mates Audi R8 and I am deadly serious when iI say as impressive a machine as it is, (and it is) the GTV has a charm that I just can't put my finger on,
I also drove a GTV V6 this weekend and of the R8, GTV 3.0 and TS and my GT I think the Busso just , but only just edges it..but its damn close.
if I had to evaluate all three cars based on running costs maintenance and ''charm'' , I would say from a driver involvment point of view te TS has a really good shout , as despite the HP being the least of the three ,the handling is fantastic, the engine note fabulous (not far off as intoxicating as the V6) and it loves being revved to th max..!!
on top of this the economy is not bad at all and the maintenance a doddle for the average weekend warrior..its viable as an everyday car ..just not sure yet if I should take the opportunity to aquire a Busso..
haven't decided yet but am seriously considering running the TS as my everyday car as she has charmed me completely..
proof its not all about HP....
enjoy, they are great little cars and set to be a classic in the very near future.
It's Busso time ..
