Fast, Heavily tunable and you would have to be stupid not to pull a bird in one...
It doesn't look the part 'til you fit coded eyebrows, lower it and fit a set of slim 5 spoke 16's.
Had this Renault 19 16v phase 1 three years. Kicked the heck out of it just about every A to B I've been and with the only damage occuring in that time being a wheel bearing failure and strut tops breaking (minor and cheap jobs) I have to say this car knows exactly its purpose in life.
Fantastic, I've nicknamed mine "The One" and with decent mods, there's nothing it won't at least keep up with this side of 15 Grand.
PS: I leathered a V6 vectra although Im not sure if the Vectra driver was giving it his all.
Still, did wonders for my ego...
