Porsche 964 Rs

Wanted to see what effect they would have on the dynamics (I thought I should be the guinea pig so that you didn't have to be) and partly because I think they make the Megane look, er, mega. However, having recently tried a 250 Cup on 18s, I have to say the more modest-looking version is by far the nicer car to drive. Shame.

Joe Alexander

Joe bought his Panda I00HP brand new two years ago and explains the attraction. 'I'd been driving a Fiat Brava that I acquired from my mum when I passed my test, but with 140,000 miles on the clock it was on its last legs. I was looking for something that was fun but on a relatively tight budget. I tested a I00HP and was sold instantly. 'I managed to get a fantastic deal from the dealer - the car was listed at just over 10,000 and I got mine for exactly 8000 in early 2008. 'You don't use the...
