Hey guys wats up
« on: January 18, 2009, 12:11:23 am »
hi all thought i wuld drop a line to introduce my self i was nearly the proud owner of a velocity red GPA only the 4th in scotland as i was told until the credit crunch turned round and bite me in the ass  :thumbd: hoping to get in another in april may time see how it goes.

so as i said i havent got mine yet and i was wondering how you guys found your GPA's for day to day life as i only got a taste of the cars performance on "A" roads during my test drive

    Hi there BeatoX,

    Thats a shame you nearly had it - hopefully April will roll round quickly and you can get one on the road.

    Its great fun - I've always been a fan of turbocharged units - you can potter around at 30 and get "decent" economy from the 1.4, or if you decide you're feeling a bit devil-may-care, you can just bury your foot and it will respond.

    Feels a lot different to drive from a fiat to be honest - if you manage to get another test drive see if you can do some "ordinary" driving.

    Had 4 people in the car a few times and performance does suffer slightly, but would recommend one completely. As fiona will tell you, it probably isnt the most practical car.

    Was it the standard GPA you tested?

    hey there guys  :wave: thanks for the reply and yes mortal it was a basic GPA cloth interior and no climate control but i still loved it the second i dropped the hammer on a quiet road i feel in love with it my fiance found the brakes a tad sensitive much to the amusement of my self  ;D i have since spoke to john one of the sales men from glasgow and he has told me they have "ss'd" there demo car so hopefully i can get a test drive on that when i go back for another GPA which i defiently will be doing as i dnt feel u can get any other that car that looks as nice, goes as fast and is so competively priced ........
