To be fair to SnR, his posts don't seem to be that inflamatory - the responses from board regulars seem more provocative than his. I have two friends who drive Leon 20VTs, and test drove one myself. It was fast in an efficient way, whereas my ZS180 was fast in a fun way. That's why I chose the MG while a friend chose the Seat - different people like different things in their cars. I hope that this forum will be an inclusive one, that we will welcome non-owners and owners alike and will respond constructively to those who post just trying to get a rise. Banning SnR would set a dangerous precedent, IMO, and would signal a move towards a more insular board, which would be less attractive to me. If anyone is to be banned, perhaps it should be those who posted implying that a 120hp MG could keep up with a 150hp Seat in a straight line.
Just like to say that the "logo" on the TOP LEFT of this page is by a sensible SEAT owner - thanks "S & R."
I also agree a 150bhp car of the same weight should be faster than a 120 bhp car with the same gear ratios.
If you want to talk SEATS, talk in the other manufacturers Forum. As mentioned before, I think the 180 bhp Cupra is good value for money but tell us on the appropraite Forum as this one is for ZR/R25's!
Finally, no one gets banned - but threads that continue on the theme "my cars better than yours" will be closed. Sorry and all that.
I only skimmer through his comments.Some are funny, but then some arguements seem to drag on with him.Can`t ban him but he should be big enough to realise when to call it a day with the same old dribble.My mate went for the Seat Ibiz Cupra 1.8l 20v over the ZR160 only because of the deal he got.He couldn`t decide between the two until it got down to money.He does however consistently have a peak at my ZR near enough everyday.
Sorry guys, I dont mean to make trouble, and I will now stop the "my cars better then your car thing" but some comments pee me off a bit (120 V 156bhp thing, come on, whoops there I go again), although 99% of the time is me just having a laugh with you lot, some members take it as a personel insult! Not what Im about
ITS JUST A BIT OF BANTER
kevin neal: "all i can say is it looked well rough!" What Did???????
I think you are thinking of the Leon Cupra R (210hp). That certainly is a lot of dosh - the general consensus is that it is just too expensive. One of my friends is importing the 180hp version with the 17" wheels and ESP for £13.5k and, once it is run in, will be paying £500 to have it chipped to 210hp. Much more reasonable!
Just like to say that personally I have no problem with anyone staying on this forum whatever car they own, as long as they respect the rules and regs. I certainly respect cars from other makers - for instance, Nat will tell you I seriously considered Seat before seeing the ZT and falling in love with it...
Agree with Jerry, this should be in a different area on the forum.
Also agree - new logo is great, wouldn't be ashamed at all to show that on my car. Now all we have to do is persuade Jerry to keep the site open...
