Great article in this months CAR magazine here in the UK. Group test of:

New Golf GTi Turbo
Civic Type R
Renault Megan 220bhp
Mini Cooper S Works 210bhp

:D :D

"The mini wins - Its rewarding to drive , good value ( :eek: ), loaded with character and insanly quick.... despite the cutsey looks this is a serious piece of performance kit"

Put it this way, despite 4 great cars, the journalists almost end up fighting to decide who drives the Mini home at the end of the group test.....

Nearly bought that issue today but sometimes the mag is a bit lacking (prefer evo) but hopefully it will convince me and the other half that pondering on swapping the S for an S works makes perfect sence :D im off to Tescos :D

I know what you mean, but this is the 'performance issue', and I saw the mini article and didn't have enough time to read it in WHSmiths!!!

Thanks! Car is one of my favorite magazines. We get it a little late in the bookstores in the US but I'll look for it.

I used to buy evo religiously every month since issue 3 or 4 I think (frist year at uni), then had a subscription for three years, but then started to buy Car every month too since about 3 years ago. I've now stopped buying evo and still get Car every month - I'll still buy evo if its a good issue (next months should be ECOTY??) but it just doesn't compare to how they used to be.... I even prefer the photography in Car these days.

Although evo still pick the best roads - my run used two from the the "evo triangle"... :)

Was a good review in that mag - I liked the part about leaving thick black lines on the road! :D
