    Iv got an ep3 iv had since December and it's a really good car for what I want. As people have said it handles very well out the box, the brakes are also very good. It's not a FAST car but it's perfectly able,if you like blating round country lanes etc the ep3 is very good, I haven't modded it yet but I an looking to so a few subtle bits and pieces, 240bhp is quite easy to obtain out of them. My GT is defiantly faster in straight line. But tbh I find the civic a little more fun. Out of the list I'd probs go s2k tbh only because they seem like great cars!

    thinking of changing my 04 ep2 for an 06 ep3 premier next year,so id pick the ep3,would be a little easier to live with than an s2k imo.

    The JCW mini isnt that fast to be honest the girlfriends mate had one hence she sold it and bought a Ford Focus RS Cosworth the Honda wouldnt be the most powerful car either but they handle superbly

    I recently came back from a DC2 type R, obviously they are a lot more of a raw car. Not that fast but definately enough for an everyday car. I just got bored of the speed tho needed a starlet again :) also the running costs of insurance, tax, petrol compared arent worth it in my eyes. i did love that car tho and if the newer type R's are anything like them you wont be disapointed.

    You could get a supercharged one for 10k ;)

    agree with knightsy there. the ep3 is worse on petrol than my GT. and when you add on the higher insurance and tax it puts me right off. plus they look horrid.
