That is one thing the Coupe is not lacking in :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Friendly place in here mate, will be loads more welcoming you but everyone seems busy and off-line tonight :doh:
That's the thing, it's only in the last two weeks iv started noticing the style, i was sure i was going to stay german with plans for a lovely a4 tdi but then it came down to a coupe or an alfa

As an ex-Astra owner (and my wife had one) you'll enjoy not seeing the engine management light every other week!
Some say the Hyundai coupe isn't as fast as it looks, but how many road cars can do 250 mph?

In memory of my first Coupe!

From Ballyfermot. I'm sure you'd know it as 'that place that's usually on fire'
Been living in Kinnegad in Westmeath for the past 6 or 7 years. I work all over the country, so I end up in Dublin fairly regularly
