    ooh thats harsh...was it the 300C? they look awesome, and i agree with what you say about audi drivers.

    Ive only seen a couple of TTRS's, both times on the motorway, they're great, but i think they should have put that engine in the A5 Coupe, the TT is still just a TT, although a very good looking one, it just doesn't seem special enough. I'd love to drive one though.

    not a lot of difference between the RS either .

    didnt say the TTS wasnt nice, but imo i think its plain to the TTRS...probably the fixed rear wing...

    just realised you said Cadillac, not Chrysler.

    You can request the removal of the fixed spoiler on the TTRS at no extra cost. thats what i would choose, coz its still going to have that electronic raising one thats standard.

    which is based on a Vauxhall Vectra. At some point most cars will be derived from about 4 platforms.

    Trouble is people can no longer add a £30k car to the life of their mortgage.

    Car manufacturers must be praying for house price inflation to return because this is where they appear to be basing the current pricing structure, wages certainly wont be increasing that fast for the forseeable future!

    now does that mean 310bhp (ps), or limited to 310 cars ala fr550?

    if its 310bhp its more like what the R should have been as stock.

    any more pics?

    310hp, basically just a stage 1 cupra r, and looks like a cupra r for the swiss market. SEAT Swiss atleast made an effort I suppose :lol:
