Hi There :) Potential new Gen 3 1.6 owner

Post#1 » Sun Oct 08, 2017 1:52 pm

Hi guys,

Currently really interested in getting a 1.6 Gen 3 as my first car at this time, preferably in blue. Just wanted to join now so I can read up a bit more about the car and get a better feel for the day to day use of it from you lovely people.

Hi Dan.
Dodge is referring to the two available blues. The sophisticated Carbon Blue like mine :dance: ( see my pics) and the loud bright blue like his which for some reason he thinks is better :confusion-shrug:

We continue to disagree :icon-lol: :laughing-rollingyellow:

Welcome to the club.

Are you looking to get the 1.6 due to insurance? if so its worth checking the 2.0 as when I first got mine the 2.0 was actually cheaper than the 1.6. Also its a bit easier getting parts for the 2.0.

Great think about the 1.6 is that if I'm correct it uses the same gearbox as the 2.0 making better performance than other 1.6 correct me if I'm wrong guys

Hi Guys, Thought I would just update you and let you know that I picked up a 04 plate 2.0 Coupe in Bright Blue and I can't be any happier. It was cheaper to buy and insure than the 1.6 for some reason so I bit the bullet :)

Pics will come when i get round to sorting them xD

Blue is ok, it's still a Coupe but red has that extra few bhp and pizzazz :happy-partydance:
