Re: wr1 or gb270

I would imagine the WR1 will always be more collectable than the GB270 and seems to be a lot more desirable, so that would be my choice if I were you.

GB270 still looks a great car though.

I'd go WR1, when I viewed a GB270 I wasn't that impressed for the money, your just paying for Prodrive Spoiler and Wheels, also some of them seem to have the Hawkeye spec seats in them!, which I though was strange, maybe I'm just looking at some bad examples?

Re: wr1 or gb270

wr1 is baby blue (if you can live with that). Hawkeye looks mean. but for me... i would go JDM - just to throw a spanner in the works

It's worse than that Andrew, it's a standard colour (yes, exact same colour) on the JDM 1.5 Impreza wagon.

Would say JDM myself, but any collectable (garage queen) JDM car is gonna be waaay more expensive than a WR1/GB270. As a drivers car no contest, JDM all the way, esp Spec C/S202. Any of the really collectable JDM cars will be well out of budget too I would imagine.

WR1, Ice Blue all day long. Great car, looked at buying one a little while ago but couldn't streach to £23k for a car that is driven a couple of times a month.
