    Hi,

    Cheers for the warm welcome. iv started to narrow it down to the year that i want to (2009 - 2010) so ill be slowly hunting.

    Is there a lot of Adelaide members on this site? would be great to meet a few.

    Just a question in relation to torque. Is the mps 380nm? is that torque at the flywheel that they measure?

    Cheers
    Jimmy

    Yes. 380nm at the flywheel. It's ALOT for a 4 cylinder.

    Welcome mate.

    By all means, i'm not an expert on the MPS's, but if you need motivation to buy one: DO IT!!

    Been through a few cars, and this by far is the most fun. The guys/girls here are most helpful, so you've started at a good place.

    Good luck on the search.

    They're a good car, ridiculous amount of torque. A few compromises and niggles like anything else.

    Avoid anything massively modded, get a virgin, at least you know it hasn't been screwed with. Buy on condition rather than km. Good luck with the search.
