Re: Would you sell your 160i for a 20 Valve?

rxi is a sweet ryd bru u cnt go wrng ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink  , if u take care of the car and not drive it like u stole it all the tym and do regular service u wont hav any issues. Rxi is a basically a 1600 and a gud daily runner , fuel wont be dat heavy if u change below 5000rpm lyk dats gna happen lol in my opinion go for it bru  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/cool

@20v turbo infact if you drive a 20v like a 1600 it will consume less than a 4afe well that what i finded out, after i bought mine, so a 20v is a way to go, and since you will be getting the car pretty much third or 4th hand be prepared to spend quiet a few bucks to get it running at its best and there after, you wont regret getting it, there is a problem with it though
ITS A FLIPPEN ADDICTIVE CAR TO DRIVE

Re: Would you sell your 160i for a 20 Valve?

Re: Would you sell your 160i for a 20 Valve?

I like both pretty much equally. Sure, I been offered a lot of money for my modified 2001 160i many times even by policemen but, you can imagine that it's not easy to just part with a car that really stands by you regardless of heavy or light foot driving  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/cheerful

It runs really well, beat a VR6 toooooooo  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/neutral  and I have NO PROBLEMS thankfully since I nurtured it from it's younger days, lol. Daily runner that shifts well when I ask it to.

When I drive a 20V, I feel at home which is cool. The extra power is definitely welcome (oh, and electric windows, heehee) And revving to 8 is too lekker.

Only issue is, I seen a bras 20V suffering with excessive smoke which costs him time and money and now, it blew it's head gasket setting him far backeven though the mileage is not too high. the car wasn't maintained well enough before he got it but, it's wasn't really bad.

I know with good maintenance early in a car's life, it will serve you well but, eish, nowadays, most ppl abuse their rides then sell them...

20v for sure dude! After driving a 160i things get a bit bland  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/blink
Unless you really wana work that engine (4afe) theres plenty potential for it

I had a tazz 160i check my sig for the mods it went very well good daily driver but when i got the rxi i never looked back it now my daily drive as long as its well maintained it very enjoyable and its better on fuel comsumption the than the 4afe!

Re: Would you sell your 160i for a 20 Valve?

Re: Would you sell your 160i for a 20 Valve?

Definitely would sell my 160i for a 20v, I miss my 20v and it was extremely well maintained

Sometimes, I regret selling my 20v  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/sad

Re: Would you sell your 160i for a 20 Valve?

If you drive with somebody who can pilot a car in a healthy conquest with 4afe ,you wouldent think of selling it.It will drop a 20v on short twisty roads,and can take alot of abuse.In general the 4afe does not nearly get as much credit as it deserve.People that i heard praise it,know their way around cars.

I would buy one now if i could my 20v is costing me alot of money atm.
