    Saw it, she's a beauty! Are there many in Ireland? I saw another silver one once (Cork reg) few years ago now though but not sure if it was an actual S204 as I didn't know much about them then. I'll keep dreaming

    Was owned by Gonzogicken (Eoin) on here. Ended up being broken this year by Team Legacy in the UK earlier this year.

    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.

    No truth . The silver one that was broke and sold to the uk had the engine gone but was also crashed . The 3 that are in the country now 2 are on original standard engines . Mick's blue one was uprated and running something like 450/500 Bhp


    No engine is failure proof but 2.0 jdm blueprinted hand built ones are a close as it gets

    As Joe says the hand built JDM engines are near bomb proof.

    I’ve done 6 track days and 90km of fast road driving and not as much as a rattle out of it.
    I’d say someone is telling tales above!

    If there was an old 2.5 scrap engine in them then yeah maybe ha ha :)
    im not here for a long time,im here for a good time colin mcrae. r.i.p.

    Yes 2 out of 3 had engines blown.

    The silver one had head gasket issues. Then a big end failure

    Micks had a failure. At 9 k km. But not fault of engine. Was alarm installer who decided to go a spin. And who knows doing what. Red line etc.


    And Joes on orginal engine.



    In say above. The silver one was a bad lemon from start.


    Micks was preventable.


    So doesnt exactly crate a 66% failure rate or anything like that.


    Them 2L JDM engines are super reliable in factory form.

    Ciaran Larkin bought an S203/4 a couple of weeks ago. Not sure which one. Was in his garage yesterday. Looks the business. The seats are outrageous
