Re: Which GTA do you prefer?

Got to be the 156, specifically the SW.
The 147 is lovely, but there are a lot of alternatives. What is there to compete with the 156GTA? All I can really think of are the RS2 and M3, and they're both hideously expensive.

Re: Which GTA do you prefer?

I think the 156 GTA SW is the best, but if I were to go out and buy one for myself, it'd be the 147.

Can't possibly vote for the new ones 'coz no-ones seen them yet!

156 GTA SW for me.

Interested in the new ones, which will hopefully be back to what GTa meant in the olden days. I think the 147 and 156 GTA are great cars, but it's the wrong badge for them.

The '47 GTA looks a bit saucy. Ooh! Do you want one?

156 GTA for me, the only practical upgrade - and a future classic?

Overall the 156 GTA seems hard to beat but a Spider GTA would look wicked I reckoned.

Re: Which GTA do you prefer?

Have owned some pretty amazing sports cars over the years but usually find myself getting bored after about a year, and into another sports car within a year and a half to 2 years at the latest - I have now owned my glorious 147 GTA for more than 2 1/2 years (a record for me!) and find my love for her is still growing!

Sexy and curvaceous, yet athletic powerful looking from any angle, intoxicating engine noise, gobs of power in every gear, a wonderful clutchless manual that blips the throttle on downshifts perfectly every time, and with the tan/black leather, an interior that wouldn't look out of place on a Ferarri.

I love the 156 GTAs as well (especially the SW, which I think is the most beautiful sports wagon ever produced), but find the curves of the 147 more organic and sensual, the front grill more pleasant looking, the interior gauges a bit more modern looking, and, surprisingly, much more leg room for the driver (at 6"2', this was an important factor)!

Re: Which GTA do you prefer?

Has to be the 147 GTA for me but then I am biased slightly!

I do agree for the most part about the 156 GTA SW. That is by far and away the best looking estate car that has ever been produced. If it wasn't for the fact that I had already owned a 156 then a GTA SW would have been a serious contender when choosing my 147.

Actually my wife's previous car was a 156 SW (2.5 Q-System). We only had it a few months when she got pregnant with our third kid and it was apparent that we needed at least 1 bigger car.

We really loved the SW, and I was thinking of selling my Impreza Sti and keeping her 156, but in the end it was the severe lack of leg and headroom (for me, not her), and the poor transmission that led us to reluctantly part with it.

As much as I was sad to see the beautiful SW go, I have no complaints since 2 years later I found myself behind the wheel of a delicious 147 GTA!!!!

M3's are getting quite cheap now... £17,000 for a nice '02 One hell of a car for not a lot of money

It's a bloody lot of money to me!
The £13k I spent on my GTA was already nearly 3x as much as I've ever spent on a car before!

Re: Which GTA do you prefer?

156 for me. Not a fan of the 147s looks TBH, I find it a bit dumpy. Not that I wouldn't have a 147 GTA mind.
