Yep. This is it:



And yes, it's a 'properly' converted model (hence how that pic was taken).

do you mean its been made into a right hand drive? thats a shame if it has, cos you cant get the same ratio steering rack in right hand drive, you have to use a slower one from the fiat parts bin, and it dulls the handling a little,
not knocking it btw, nice motor my mate has an evoII and its great, not as fragile as many people make out either

Yep, when i said 'converted', i meant it's been 'made into' right hand drive. :rolleyes:
I've never heard about the steering ratio's being any different though, interesting.
I agree regarding build quality. This thing feels as solid as most german cars to drive, no rattles or squeaks etc (maybe it's the only one which doesn't) :D
I think they're better mechanically than bodily though. Very poor grade steel was used.

yup, the chassis actually crack cos of the strain aswell, around the windscreen pillar is another favourite for cracks, agree about the steel work, some of the early ones are a bit flimsy, they kinda sorted it on the late ones
lovely cars though, really nice handling balance, and not exactly slow in a straight line either, drove my mates quite alot now, and i'm impressed to say the least, much rather have one of those than a scooby, thats for sure
