I've been an enthusiastic 147 driver for 4 months now and loving every minute of it, once I'd got used to the clutch.
It may only be the 1.6, but it sounds like a big engine, presumably thanks to the 8 spark plugs and the slightly rusty back box. And the quick start 0-55 sprint is quite amazing, really feels and sounds like a go-kart .
Got no pics myself yet - this one's from the ad that I saw before trekking all the way to Hatfield to buy it. Definitely not going there for servicing though - any recommendations for South Birmingham / Solihull ?
See you around
