    Mercedes 190 cosworth

    Yes they did but to be fare .. all three cars were knackered in various ways so it was never going to be an accurate test, but yes the MB did seem to lose out in most areas. (having said that.. it did have James May at the wheel!)

    Mercedes 190 cosworth

    Yes I have driven one and I was very impressed with the overall package but I just didn't want one enough to buy one. I ended up buying a sapphire cosworth and never regretted the decision over the 190 or the m3. I didn't say the 190 was inferior in any way, I always liked it but it was always...

    Mercedes 190 cosworth

    Always liked the MB cosworth but never enough to buy one, that seems to be a very tidy example for the mileage, not sure about the colour and definitely wouldn't pay that for it. :fail In my humble opinion the MB cosworth was always over shadowed by the M3 and sapphire cosworth so the asking...

    Fastest car you have been in ??

    I was lucky enough to be the passenger I an R34 skyline GTR veilside combat 2, 1,256 hp! at Silverstone race circuit. I thought my tuned GSXR 1,000 was quick but that car was from another world. Very fast, very noisy, very thirsty, very expensive, and very not mine :(

    Advice / recommendation for smd side lights

    Thanks for the reply but I have the bayonet type with pins set at 150 degrees. There are plenty to choose from on the 'bay' but would have been good to have a recommendation from anyone on here that has bought a particular make and rated their performance over standard. I guess i'll just buy...
