I have just got my insurance money through . have seen a black sti bugeye and a P1, have test drove a P1 before and what a car, but it does look dated.. and also watching fifth gear the dude from faitlhess has one!!!!
I was dissapointed with my uk300, it wasnt prodrived just standard 225bhp and i was finding bmw325 and saabs were beating me and mondeo's which was very embarresing as mine was supposed to be a sports car.
Cant drive as yet as got to go to hospital on the 5th may to have another x-ray andnhopefully wrist is mended so i go drive again.
If you had 15,000, what would you buy.......

The P1 is nice, extremly nice, but i do drive my car to custmers and how many people actuall know what a P1 is. As to a none car enthusiasts the newer models all look roughly the same. This is why i cant decide.
The P1 i will not have to do anything to it, as its really quick due to its lightness, but with the sti i would have to get it prodrived opr mapped to get the 300bhp mark then no doubt spend more money on it.

Decisions,Decisions
