I agree with John, I do like the DS4 racing but I prefer the graphite grey. 256 bhp

Was disappointed to find on the grey prototype that's doing the rounds at various shows - those wheels are actually huge steel wheels with flimsy plastic covers on haha.

Old mans car Chris! Getting into the cap and slippers before your time. Did you have some leather driving gloves to go with the rover?



Although to be fair, the mod block V8 isn't bad just wish they had put that engine in something more sporty looking. Seems so wrong to have a mustang engine in something that does not have that long bonnet muscle car image. Although I am a big yank muscle car fan.

The V8 was an amazing version of the car (and the V6 I had wasn't bad either). We had 3 or 4 of the V8 75s and ZTs come along to the Meguiar's car car workshop that Stuey organised earlier this year. The sound was incredible.

The problem was, the car's engine bay just wasn't set up to handle an engine that big (it could barely take th V6). The MGR engineers had to reconfigure the engine a lot to make it fit, losing horsepower in the process but making the Mustang lump run so smoothly, better than it does in a gruff entry-level Mustang. Apparently Ford licences the engine map MGR created for the 270 block they were so impressed with how it ran.

They also had to completely replace the heater matrix with a smaller one in order to make room for the larger transmission, and they had to take out the ashtray for the same reason. All a bit DIY but in typical MGR fashion, the finished product was surprisingly good despite the lack of money to develop the model and the RWD platform properly.

Anyway, let's try and keep on topic, back to the DS4 and what people think of it.

The DS4 prices peak at about £23k IIRC...plucking a figure out of the air you'd hope less than £30k but not sure it will be given its 'status'...
