    It would be fun to do that to something. I would never disfigure a pug though! Even if mine does take 18.9sec to do the 400m sprint

    Why is it that every second person I know that used to have a 504 or 505 is now driving a Magna ??? Is there something to that ?

    Haha, I don't think so. They are completely crap. It is only amusing to drive because of all the torque steer and the fact that the rear end has absolutely no grip at all when corning! Quite funny to get serious lift-off oversteer in a family sedan! Mind you when that happens the front starts to lose grip as well so it just generally doesn't go where you point it.

    It isn't actually mine (thank god!), but my parents. I just end up driving it a lot.

    And be down the workshop cutting their cars up !!.

    Best thing you can do with a Hy-undie machine. Actually they wreckers here say there is 8-10 hyundie write-offs per week. There must be a lot of secondhand parts out there.
