    Hi to all those still around

    After 9 1/2 years, feck sake, has the Legnum been gone that long... shocked

    Bit of review of the Legacy:
    Solid car, went like stink, comfy and loved.
    Is also up for sale...

    It's time for another change.
    Now what to go for???

    The list included a:
    Porsche Panamera Hybrid S - could have made the finances work, but couldn't stomach the possible future bills
    Volvo S90/V90 T8 - S90 was available, but didn't float my boat
    Volvo V60 T8 - would have had to be a Polestar, and just sod all of them available and none in Ireland
    Do I go for a 2 seater?
    Nissan GTR - Oh, how I wish, but still needed the space
    Go old JDM?
    Always wanted and Supra - but no nice unmolested twin turbos around

    So?
    Saloon - Hatchback - 2 Door?
    Normal family car?
    Dare I suggest diesel?

    Or stick to the tried and tested?
    Estate - Big enough - Petrol - Turbo - +250bhp??? Worked the last 2 times
    Why the hell not.
    But who makes such a thing these days?

    My thoughts went back and forth, few cars fit the bill and then a search threw up something of interest.
    Was listed on Friday, saw ad on Sunday, test drove Monday, deposit paid and picked up this Monday.
    But what could it be I hear you all ask.... (well maybe one of you anyway)

    Estate - Big enough - Petrol - Turbo - +250bhp

    For the first time in 22 years, NOT a JDM car

    Ok, ok, ok, enough waffle...
    And the answer is:
    Skoda - Superb - Sportline - Estate - 2.0Tsi - DSG - 280bhp - 2017

    Nice to hear from you again Robert! Hope you are otherwise well and that not having a JDM isn't a sign of mental instability!!

    Possibly actually a sign of mental clarity

    Looks nice. Crazy how quick 'normal' cars are becoming these days!
    October 2020 fleet status: 75% operational 25% furloughed!


    | JDM Legnum VR-4 Type-S | JDM Mitsubishi Legnum VR-4 S | Fiat Panda 100HP go-kart !! | Peugeot Partner Work Van |

    Why not become a full member of CVR4 and enjoy the additional benefits membership brings?! Information here.

    Hey Nev, good to see you still around.

    All good hear, bar the madness of being a manager in the Covid crazy world, while studying, definitely mentally unstable!!!

    The Superb is nice and quick already, be interested to see what it's like with a Revo Stage 1 tune estimated to come out around the 340bhp!!!
