    Nice episode. I would like to tell Matt, the "6L V12" in the Vanquish/V12V/DB9/etc. is actually only 5.934L, because since it's 2 little duratecs both displacing 2.967L it adds up a bit under :P

    There must have been wrong with that mk1 GTI. It may not be the fastest or best handling car in the world, but assuming it's been maintained a Rabbit GTI is still a quick, fun, and responsive little car. They're not as fast as new hot hatches, but from my experience mk1's and mk2's are not unlike old Miatas, E30's, CRX's, or AE86's. They're probably over-hyped by the message board brigade, but they're still quick and they do respond incredibly well to modification.
