Why Did I Buy My GTI-R ?

The Main Reason I Bought The GTI-R Is That They Are Very Quick For What They Are Whilst Being Very Affordable & Reasonably Reliable Whilst Maintaining A Reasonable Street Sleeper Look With Rally Car Handling & Power.

My Main Aim Was Not To Get The Highest Power GTI-R Possible, I Wanted A Mint Condition GTI-R That I Could Modify & Set Up For Fast Road & Track Use So All Of The Cars Handling & Power Could Be Used Without Getting Any Major Turbo Lag Or Un-Comfortable Ride.

I Managed All Of This From This Mint GTI-R THat Has Now Gone To A Good Home.

Why Do I Like The GTI-R ?

I Love To Buy, Drive & Own Cars That Are Different To Everything You Normally See On The Road. I Liked The Look Of The GTI-R & Although They Are Not The Best Looking Cars In The World They Have A Distinctive Look & Look Like No Other Car. This Is One Of The Main Reasons I Purchased The GTI-R.

Another Reason For This Purchase Was That I Love To Drive Cars That Are Not Seen Everyday On The Road & THis Car Fitted The Specification That I Wanted From My Car That Was To Replace The Celica GT4 ST185.
