I love my GRMN !
Well, first impressions.
This car is so taut. The gearchage is lovely, the suspension firm yet supple, and the engine has tremendous verve even while trying not to !
The seat is amazing and the ride position for me, is not a problem.
Accepted that the steering feels a little light (maybe more grippy tyres would help to load it up) .... the brakes are very linear with loads of capacity, and I love it !
People talk in glowing terms of the Renault Clio Trophy ... I owned the last one that I bought from the man who had won it in an Autocar competition (he sold it to buy back a Subaru that he had sold when he won the Trophy) ... but frankly, this Toyota is in another league.
All it lacks is the reputation in the name, and that will come.
So far, so amazing. I've shown it to friends who are used to Porsche prices ... they've ridden in it and looked at the engineering (including the Lotus bits), and they can't believe how little I paid for it.
If this reads like an advertisement ... you should hunt one out and try it, before the last few have gone.
I had almost thought of putting this one in a glass case and buying another to beast around my favourite circuits to show it off !!
Delta Integrale / RS1800 / Honda Integra .... this is Toyota GRMN territory.
