Thanks for the comments, we are also getting a Rapid car. Can't wait to bring her home.
Funny story....on the test drive (not the one we are buying) my wife got pulled over by the boys in blue for a random breath test....after they came to terms with the fact the car had no front number plate as it had a trade plate on the back, they questioned us on why the brakes smelt so much..
lucky I jumped out of the drivers seat about 2 minutes earlier or they might not have been as forgiving.
We then took a GT on the same run (20km round trip) and the Typhoon felt stronger without a doubt.....my wife reckons the GT felt like her Mazda 6 sports only with more power....oh yeh I thought 122kw to 290kw...yep more power indeed.
Anyway with the choice of a GT or Typhoon, we went the Typhoon....will make a nice daily driver for my wife during the week.
