I'm not calling Revo's Spanish office to verify a power claim that's 50% larger than all their English language literature and that I can't find reference anywhere in open sources. 270bhp on a K03s 1.8T is physically impossible, as just about any VAG tuner or forum will tell you. Badger Bill is regarded as the best 1.8T tuner in the world, runs numerous race vehicles and has built engines for Time Attack, Formula Palmer and rally, and his stage 2 K03s Ibiza made 233bhp on 102 octane race fuel. That's with a turbo back + 3" downpipe, FMIC, custom intake, Forge diverter and uprated wastegate. His custom remap is based on a Revo stage 2 baseline and despite having far more supporting mods than yours and being one step up in terms of level/stage yet makes 40hp less than your claimed output on race fuel.Or drop Nikki at R-Tech an email (http://www.r-techpower.co.uk) who I believe has the highest recorded power output ever achieved on a K03 turbocharged 1.8T of any kind and explain to him how his record is no longer valid despite being on a fully forged engine with a huge number of accompanying mods because someone linked to Revo Spain told you that the car he sold you with a stage 1 map was putting out 270 despite that being optimistic for a much larger K04.

Check the following forum threads:
http://www.briskoda....03s-can-handle/
http://www.seatcupra...ad.php?t=149302
http://www.audizine....0-k03-max-power
http://www.velocidad...ad.php?t=123507

I'm not going to get into this any further than that, aside from saying that you made the claim, you prove it, and given Revo are notorious for inflating their power figures that's really got to be from an independent dyno.

 

I don't have to prove anything. If you don't want to believe me fair enough, you are free to come by anytime and check my car.

"I don't have to prove anything" is a phrase usually used by people solely because they can't prove anything. You're factually wrong but if you want to keep up the fantasy then suit yourself. Let's return to the topic at hand.

I'm not sure that metaphor means what you think it does. Unless it has very different meanings in English and Spanish.

You can't really say all cars from the 90's are ugly, but you can argue that there are a select few that shouldn't have been a thought lol. But I'd say that most of the 90's cars aren't bad but like i said before there are a few that are just terrible.

They always do.

Though considering how so many people buy them, they all end up looking boring within months.

Edit: Ouch, that bloat.

The '90s were a weird time for car designs it's like everybody wanted to go against the sharp boxy designs of the '80s and streamlined everything and made blobby, undefined cars as a result. There was also no shame in making it obvious that part of cars actually were made of plastic. There were exceptions of course.

overall, I like the looks of cars in the 90's a more than today 

it was a time to get out of the boxy era into the sleek rounded era

though some cars look like junk *cough cough* anything by saturn*cough* Some cars do not

I am quite optimistic about how cars look today, despite many cars looking very generic, there seems to be an upward trend with more attention to the small details of each car.

Case in point, just looking at the BMW picture you can see the E90 looks very 'low resolution,' it doesn't have the inricate shapes of the other cars and looks rather bland. I'd say this is true of just too many cars that came out between around 2003-2009 (or at least cars sold here I am familiar with). People say the '90s was the decade of 'blandening' but I think the '00s was a far worse culprit.

Just look at some of these cars compared to their successors:

With their bloated lines and flat-looking headlights, the class of '00 were a pretty miserable bunch.

It is a McLaren F1 Red. IMO, the best car of the 90s.

Ah, Sorry, I forget sometimes Sarcasm doesn't translate very well through Text.

 

But meh, Mclarens never really Interested me very much, Older ones were too basic looking, and the new ones are just...  well....  silly.

This is probably my Favourite Sports car from the 90's, Mostly because it reminds of the 80's with that Body.

That's not even a 1990 Countach. Any 90 model is going to be a 25th Anniversary spec car.

Yeah, it's a UK C-reg which makes it a 1985-6 car.

Have to agree with this. Overall, I think 00's were worse than 90s.

SO many boring cars in the 00's

There are some decent looking cars from the 90's...

However, the 99% are ugly as f*ck!

 

That, my friend, is one of many unsolved mysteries...

Nissan R390 GT1 (1998) - beautiful car. (agreed with the person who posted pic of one)

imo the BEST looking Supercar of the '90s, design still looks clean and fresh even today.

 

003.jpg

 

060312_r390_03.jpg

 

060312_r390_00.jpg

 

It's design was inspired by the Jaguar XJR-15 (below),

same designer Ian Callum, designed the XJR15 in 1990,

then worked for Nissan in 1997 to design the R390's body.

both resemble each other and are beautiful,

just imo the R390 looks a bit better due to looking more fresh, and up to date.

 

 

Jaguar XJR15 (1991)

Forgot to add the 1996 RUF CTR2

one of the best looking 911s of the time,

due to the nice rear wing.

Some of the 90's cars were ugly, but what about today's and the 80's and so on, every decade will have their "ugly" cars.

some of the 90's cars were just... :panic:

example-%D0%A1%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BC%D0%BA%D0%B8-%D0

this is either a hit or miss but imo if you look after them well, they still look good

and this, though not the nicest looking still not ugly and different for volvo at the time

I like the '96 Impala SS, but I now associate it with gang members (who inevitably ruin it with ridiculous wheels).
