P 1 mate it's got to be , i know the rb5 is a special motor as well but just the
looks of a good P 1 is enough surley.
Plus at the moment some of the prices for them are stupid to say the least :wink: :wink:

RB5's are lovely motors, BUT if you are in the market for a change then P1 m8 has to be...

I would also think from the test drive you are already smitten....... GO FOR IT

P1

Got to be a P1, although the RB5 is different, it does not have the power or goddam good looks of a P1, I mean its only got 2 doors which makes its look unique.

Expect to pay top dollar for one with only 20k + miles on it from the dealers, they're still selling from around 14k upwards. Sold one earlier last year with 55k on it and that still pulled 17k!!!!! :shock:

There are some nice cars (well priced with good mileage) on P1woc.co.uk

Plenty of good ones out there still but it depends how much you want to spend really. I got mine a year or so ago with only 9k on the clock
