I would if I could! This'll definitely be going to the highest bidder which of course won't be me! Aren't these worth good money now?

What a fantastic little thing! I've now experienced the infamous 'rifle bolt' gearshift. And that it is. Extremely tiny lever and company knobule with a lovely, weighted, snickety snack movement.

Better than a Pumas gearchange? Not necessarily. But they're probably both the best i've used.

But! What a lovely little thing. I had a little drive on site but sadly was not able to...you know.....check out the VTEC.

With 236bhp and only 1250kg....it's gonna shift. Rare to see a number 9 on the rev counter, too....

It's  small car...but not as small as maybe....a MX5...but the cabin is tight...or should that be...snug. You lower yourself down into it carefully...i just love the like...minimalist nature of it. ALL of the controls are right in front of you. The stereo is behind a panel so it can't be seen. The buttons and switches all have that lovely 90's/00's Japanese toughness (a bit plasticky but like...tough) and of course, the lovely red starter button.
Seats weren't amazing in terms of like...support, i felt. But you sit so low and you have the big central tunnel right next to you, you are hardly gonna be alble to fall out of the seat.

Heavy steering. It's all very...mechanical and weighted, rather like a first gen MINI.

As i say, i wasn't able to remotely test the performance due to not taking the car off site but yeah, it's a nice thing. It does feel old fashioned and like...not refined...but thats no problem...and that will be a draw to many.

Guy at work has one as his second car. He paid 10k for a 2005 car, but it is in very good condition. He loves it.

One of my all time favourite cars to drive ...

The V-tec zone is truely outrageous.

Very tail happy too ..... I very nearly bought one instead of the Lotus ...

Are fetching good money, but not many good ones left on the road - most got abused and unloved when they were worth pennies.

I’d still love one !!

This one isn't in great condition. It will clean up OK...but it's far from immaculate. But...it's nice enough.
