    The Alfa and civic did really well considering the competition. The more I hear about the civic the more impressive it sounds. maybe one in a few years time

    Porsche was always going to win and also the 1 I'd take regardless of price .

    Intresting to hear the Michelin PS4 were better than the cup sport 2 on the track ,

    Now I know i will be de balled for my next comment but I have done a complete 360 on the new Honda civic type r, initially thought they looked ott, I had the pleasure of a spin in one and had a good look around one last August and I really liked it, goes really well, handles great and is different,

    I have been even considering selling the Scooby type r and my daily to buy one😱

    One before current one Kieran?

    Think there the dogs dangleys too the styling pure Jap Science fiction interior is savage and seats some of the best I've ever sat in only thing I didn't like was steering wheel blocked part of dials no matter how I adjusted seat & wheel everything else spot on

    Didn't drive it just spent a good while in one at Brands hatch BTCC and Goodwood

    Personally think Honda show how far Subaru (Current Model) have dropped the ball when you spend some time looking at the Civic Type R especially in the interior

    @ciaran, yes previous model still a great car, interior is mad in a cool way, also didn't drive it just got a passo lap at speed and was really impressed,

    The current model out of my price range for another while but I will give it serious consideration when I'm changing next.

    @ Tommy, always been a Honda man too, ��, the older ones gave you great bang for your buck
