Is there such a thing as a used IMPORT car price guide either in book or www. form?

As CK says there is a price guide but it is trade only. Try the Car Import Guide magazine as that lists most imports and the rough prices. Other than that is to get the old Exchange and amp; Mart etc. and have a look to see what they are selling for.

btw are you Indy on the IOW?

It's been in the news for the past year that Indy will return to our screens for a new adventure...

Fiats Indy! Very dangerous! You go first!

Indy - IOW!

Colin, old fruity! Good to hear it's running well. (One always worries, just in case you know!)

The Coupe turbo is very quick and luxurious, but the handling is what I miss. Budget is (relatively) low, so I'm wondering whether to go for a UK Honda Integra Type R (which I've had before and was great fun) or go for something like an Impreza STi 4 (if they are cheap).

Hence, import price guide!

What I will say is though, the Scooby bulletin board people remind of XR3i drivers from the 80s/90s. Don't know if I could take the stigma, although I'm sure they are not all the same.

I suggest the Integra again, Subaru's are too juicy. According to government figures (19.9mpg average) they are worse than Evo's but I find that hard to believe. Happy hunting!

If you want the Integra to be quicker than a 1.0 Micra then I'd reckon the fuel consumption <i>would</i> be about the same as an Evo. You really have to rev the **** out of them to get them to move.

I've heard the Accord isn't quite so lacking in torque lower down, maybe that would be a good choice?

Had the Integra TR before the (late) Evo VI. Ecomony was never worse than 27mpg, usu 30-ish. The torque curve on the Integra is pretty good from 2000rpm|PLS| and would see off an Accord TR, just check some of the reports. Had a joust with an Evo V once, surprised him, I think...

Have asked for Evo V v STi 4 group test report rom Autocar. If anyone interested, I'll sum it up later.

I have probably got a back issue of that! Save your money I will scan it!
