    I can't possibly describe to you people what a Cosworth feels like. You simply have to experience it.

    The Japanese "Type R" everything, or at least, they used to.

    The Suzuki Swift .. in Japan is known as the Suzuki Every.

    EDIT: It's not the Every / Swift. It's the PopJoy Wagon.. and ....

    The Every comes in ... get this...

    Wagon R

    Popjoy
    Type R
    Popjoy R
    Popjoy R Type R
    R type R
    R type Double R and finally the creme de la creme,
    The Popjoy R Type R RR


    I am NOT joking.

    The 2.5 RS coupe is weaksause, dosent even come turbocharged and has the weakest heads ive ever heard of.

    Go Cosworth!

    But the Type R sti is a very nice car. heavyer than the 22B but has been known to handel a bit better but not by much.

    IMO the best suby made is the spec C. But iam a cosworth fan more than anything but sadly we dident get the cosworth here. This country sucks, we dont get the good cars.

    I would drive the shit out of either car. I however have a soft spot for the body styling of the 2.5 rs.

    I test drove an XR4Ti up in your town last year... it was fully converted (Except still LHD). He even did the b pillar removal. Nice stuff.

    He only wanted 8 grand for it too.
