Some people love them some people hate them, and if your myself I had no other choice. For most it is there first car, and what better than a cheap Citroen saxo… well no this isn't always the case.
The French market do make some, dare I say it good cars. Take the 106 gti for example. It gets pulled along by a decent engine and it can run circles around turbo's on the track! But we are not redline, and we don’t care what it can do on a track.
We have been meaning to shot this for a little while, with our first good look around the car at Heaven on Wheels earlier this year. He said to us he had a few more plans and by god it was worth waiting for.
I feel Adams pain when it comes to finding wheels in 4x108, not only 4x108 but something wide to get the stance pukka. He found these sweet 15 inch bbs in black and had to have them. Over time he has re dished them both front and back and painted the middles this poo colour you see before you.
The Definitive team would like to thank Adam for making the journey to us, this kid lives closer to Ireland than England. he brought his passport he was that confused.
