Not Ka's like that we don't! (btw, not any more either) If the Ka had a 1.6 ohc engine out here it might have done a bit better.

Re: You guys get KA's right?

This model came out in July 2003.

It is mighty Quick. All KA's here post Sept 2002 have new Duratec Engines. Even the 1.3i pushes out 70+ bhp thats about 20+ more then the old Endura Engine. Dunno what enigines yours had in em.

Re: You guys get KA's right?

I've seen the SportKa before, our Ka's had an old ohv boat anchor not that far separated from an Anglia motor (presume this must be the Endura engine) - 1.3L 45kW or so which quite simply did not cut the mustard. Also not having an auto available didn't help (sales that is, not performance). I'm not sure when they stopped importing them to Aus, but by the end they had really cut the price to get rid of them. A shame really as I like the car in concept (standard one that is, Sportka is better of course), but with the ohv engine I just would not buy one if I was in the market for that type of car, basically the engine let the rest of the car down.

Re: You guys get KA's right?

That's way nicer than the Oz Ka. Is it as nasty as it's evil twin? the Black one? That car sorry,Ka is one nasty little thing. I see you have a sunroof aswell, any cats around?
