    R12 vs R18?

    Which do you prefer, and what are the strengths and weaknesses between the two?

    How do the sedans and wagons compare against one another (i.e- R12/Virage vs R18).

    Sorry, I know it's a very broad question, but I am curious to know!

    12s have character, 18s don't.

    My opinion!

    R12 v's R18 ????

    I've owned both a Virage wagon and an 18 wagon.

    18 a little more versitle with the 5 sp gearbox and larger engine.

    Virage much better aawww value than the 18, cause the R18 tends to blend in more. Where as the R12/Virage still has the classic look of an older car.

    12 is just that when it comes down to it, an older car. But all said i'd go with it compared to the 18 any day even if it's noiser and a litle slower in stock form. Cause it's more of a classic
