If it is anything like the Classic 900 it will feel smooth but a little sluggish below 2750/3k rpm, but once above that, and the whole car is transformed, and if you can keep it above that magic line, it will be absolutley mental, and you will get a great deal of pleasure from it. With it being a FWD, it will be a totally different performance experience. But with heated seats, possibly leather, a decent feeling steering wheel, and loads of torque, that will pull you through that little flat area below 3k, you will find it a dream. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot) http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
