not bad. the chassis is suitable for that kind of power too. Doesn't change the fact that I can't drive them without pushing two pedals at once with my size 11s. Other that that though, they are a nice car to drive for what they are as long as you get the a more modern one with the improved engine.

Go for the later duratorq engined models as they are good.Pre-reg ones or 2/3 year old are very cheap & I would recommend it over the earlier models which suffered suspension/steering problems which would outweigh the extra cost of the later models in repair bills.

i have heard that because of it being poorly designed, quite a few KA's arent getting through the first mot due to the shell rusting :eek:

It's a fast girly car! Doesn't matter if it pumped out 1,000BHP it's still a Ka!

saying that though I've heard the coop be called a girly car before. :rolleyes: each to their own!

Still hate the KA (always have and always will- dont know why either), but admire the work gone into the conversion. Cossie alloys look good as always, and cant beat a bit of chrome on the CVH ;) Though would be much better in its original home :p
