No jealousy here. Trust me on that. Nothing stopping me owning another 306 beyond I don't want to and think my v70 is a better all round car.


Volvo V70 you haters are having a laugh now, wheres your driving spirit or maybe you don't have one Dunno

Do any haters here actually own a car that is marginally better than the 6?... No is the answer LOL Golf GTI 280 bhp remap for fools that cant drive properly and will never be able to appreciate totally awesome chassis on the 6 Love

Have you ever driven one? I doubt it.
And whilst owning my gti6 it had a rad, headgasket, bottom end went so new engine, crank pulley shat itself.
Drive a few more cars and then come back with an opinion Thumbs up

I have a 6 but prefer the 205 gti. I miss mine...
I love me 6 but don't love love it. Does it make me a hater just because I prefer a different car and don't want to marry it?

Can you define marginally better? In what aspect?

I had an S3 that was faster, nicer inside, more comfortable, nicer to drive and had more toys in it.

Now I've got a 182 which is faster & handles better.

The 220K 306 HDI i bought was better on fuel than a GTI 6.

Even the Astra GSI turbo I bought after selling my 1st 6 was a better colour (although the less said about that the better LOL)

Times have changed.

These things are old, cheap, disposable cars now. The majority of 'haters' owned these vehicles several years ago when for the price, they were an all round strong contender.

As times go on, and decent examples become hard to find, for the price of a 'good' one, there are better alternatives.

My Dad got me a Lamborghini Testarossa for my 21st bristhday, which is probably better then every car anyone has ever owned on this forum. It was a mishmash of two super cars so better then owning just 1 super car. For some reason it only drove sideways though and had loads of flashing lights all over it.

Also Nashy on this forum drives a really fast top hat with trolly wheels. It has a huge steering wheel at the top and it turns really sharp to the right with the slightest movement of the wheel, but then he has to turn the wheel loads to be able to turn left. Unforutately it makes him bounce all over the place but man is it fast, and it pops and bangs all the time. Professor Nashingtons Eccentric Autopalooza I beleive its called.

I like mine. Comfy interior, huge space, airbags everywhere and its also quick on track too. Quicker than the gti6s I've come across.
In my eyes it is better, although its major drawback is steering feel.

Fair enough I didn't always own it, but I'd bet there are less than 5 people on here that have owned theirs from new. Go figure out your argument. There are loads of ex police remapped T5s with 250k plus on them. The dTurbo engines last longer Razz

I have owned clio 172 phase 1, 328 cabriolet, 330ci coupe, toyota celica vvti, clio rsi(wolf in sheeps costume)106 gti, 205 gti (best car I've owned was a beast all my mates thaught there was something wrong with it was so fast bought a few more 205 gti's but my first was the best), golf gti 16v mk3, golf gti mk4 which I sold to buy a 6, golf gti 16v mk2, corrado vr6, mini cooper s, fiat 500 (misses has 1 must say handling is very good and would love to test the abarth), alfa mito jtd, civic type r, honda prelude redtop vtech, and numerous others not to mention all the cars ive test driven lol moral of the story is that I never bought any of those cars again neither do I miss them apart from the 205, had about 6 6's and always miss them when I dont have 1.

And why would I want to drive a v70 or land/range rover I like smallish cars there easy to park and great for boosting in and around the chaos of london.

We should set up track day haters vs 6 er's Whistle

Most of the cars you listed I would say are on a similar level to a 6 with nothing really way ahead in terms of performance. Even if you don't like the Subaru and evo thing, they are far superior cars and even my old Saab was better in performance (not handling though LOL) and I imagine some Volvos are the same.

I'm just glad I'm old enough not to care anymore, all I worry about now is how much room is there and how much will it not cost me in fuel LOL

v70 was mentioned mk5 golf gti sounds like quite a good car but as I stated before the next car I plan on buying will be porsche its the only car that will numb the pain and make me forget about peugeot forever Sad

The 6 rules cant wait to drive mine to Amsterdam next month will be a blast dont know if I'd be so excited about driving there if I was in a golf mk5 280bhp or not Yes

Before I started my hb supercharged project I was going to get a 911 but just think about the servicing costs as well as replacement parts costs! plus I would never have the balls to start stripping a 10k car
I had just over 10k to spend and I still chose Peugeot!
I must be mentally ill or just a tard!

Neither, you have good sense, especially if you keep it for good. It will end up going up in price in time just like 205's are now and MK1 Escorts do now.

I dont do, oh look at me and my new car load of bull. I dont need a car to show my status and all that, all i want is a fun good looking driving car that surprises other cars on the roads, with a flat roof. I really dont like all the new cars with curvy roofs.

[QUOTE=123456]Do any haters here actually own a car that is marginally better than the 6?... No is the answer


OK, Im not a hater but Ive got a lot of cars most people would see as better than a 306 - 350Z, MR2, 400hp 200SX at the moment and Ive had an S2K, Evo 8 FQ340, Integrale, use of E46/E92 M3, and when it comes to what Ive driven .......... lets just say the GTR wasnt as quick as some were Wink

The attraction of these cars isnt the looks or rarity (that actually amuses me), and theres plenty of more reliable, faster and better sounding stuff out there too.

The attraction IMO is the combination of astonishingly good handling coupled with good feedback, which makes it a joy to drive, in a practical 4 seat body. Again, there are cars that do this too (M3's, Integrales, Evo's to name 3 that Ive had) but they arent available for £1000 with parts that cost pocket money and servicing you can do yourself. :thumbs:

I can see the prices going up, as they do seem to last, dont rust and are brilliant for the reasons above, but theres as much chance of them becoming £20K as there is of David Cameron starting to use one as his limousine Wink Big grin

It is quite funny coming onto an owners club where most of the members dont own the car and usually just slag it off.

I went on to the Autopalooza's owners club earlier and there was only 1 member, Nashington. He had created threads himself slating his Top Hat car and he only has it as he keeps getting tricked into buying the same car over and over again. He then banned me from the site as I dont have a Top Hat car.

Not much love then.

"Awww dont worry baby give me a big hug then tomorrow morning I will pamper you in detail, then onto to your favourite place to brunch (shell), and if your feeling up to it like you always are we will head over to the quiet country lanes of barnes and when no - one is looking I will give you a bloody good spanking"
