Well I would say RA as I have one but up to you fella Id drive both of them see what you like every one is different and different taste but if you wanted the more raw hardcore car get the RA I kinda like the Bug look to but the Classic is lighter so will be a lot more nimble to the Bug aswell but Id drive both and take it from their

Re: What to do?

RA!

either that or a late classic STi (V5/6) as there are some great deals out there. However would also say that it depends what you are mostly gonna use the car for imo. If it's a daily driver and you have a family then the bug STi is not a bad choice as it is a lot more comfortable than any classic (especially the RA) and has a much nicer cabin too. They're still quick and if you don't mint the front view (the bit most of us don't like) then why not.

You've seen the Classic Vs Bug thread already so know where my own, Darren and Ian's Bias lay. For sheer grin factor it has to be an RA. Of course, if you have enough and are lucky enough to find a good 'un then go for an S202.

Re: What to do?

for a toy type RA everyday of the weekend (like the pun? yeah i know its bad huh lol)

crank it up to 320ish, strip it out, roll cage it, and if you wanna go mad, plexi the windows.

looks like this when you get stig to drive it,

Re: What to do?

it does seem to be a popular question!

Going from the general response to my thread and the research, I'd say defo RA if its a weekend car...depends how much you like your creature comforts?! could compromise with a Type R V limited?
