Had mine since Jan 2000, no plans to sell it just yet!

Would go for something small and rapid, not sure what, though!

a professional install to start. a 25 shot should go on no bother but (emphasis on the but) your engine MUST be in tip-top condition as well as making sure the fuel/nos ratio is within "safe" levels or its bye-bye engine!

I had planned on keeping mine until at least April, but temptation gave way (and due to my stupidness so has most of the engine!) so cinq will become punto. Punto will be with me for three years sucking me dry of all funds :) It's fun buying a new car every couple of months or so, a mate of mine has had 3 this year purely out of habbit... keeps things interesting!

Cinq owner, Punto on the way!

as soon as I can flog it! Might keep it until at least spring though, I want to be able to do stuff on my new car without freezing my a$$ off! Purely a pshycological (sp?) thing methinks.
