im not so good on kph, but i can say the UK has a speed limit on the motorways of 70mph unless stated otherwise! i have heard its going to be cut down to 50mph to cut down traffic and accidents but i think itll cause more traffic and accidents!

They need to raise the limit IMO, afterall the safest roads in Britain are motorways!

i think in certain parts, it should be raised to at least 90/100mph! and they should get rid of that bus lane on the m11 (i think its the m11, the one where if someone would get off the bus, they would step out onto the m/way!)

Realy sensible, lol. Not sure I'd want it raised to as much as 100mph, that would mean you could get away with doing 125mph and only get three penalty points, lol....yeah it's good...but not necessarily safe, lol

Not just an R5, but the R5 Turbo I and Turbo II, a legend in the automotive world. One of the coolest cars to come from France, and a very desireable, collectable rallye car. Turbocharged midengine pocket rocket, and the inspiration for many, many clones and copycats. it usually ends up named one of the top 10 sports and GT cars of the era.

I'm no fan of Renault's, but the R5 Turbo was amazing in its day...the Boy Racers loved them too, as the 1400cc engine was adequate to insure, lol. I prefer the group B rally car though.....

it was just my opinion! i could say i liked the MG maestro but to hell with that (although the MG montego was good!) i do agree that the R5 was a great car in its day, and still, but its one of those cars that would not end up on the long list of cars i like!

European cars are pretty tough indeed and reliable when it comes to overall performance. But for me, I would never let go of Volvo.
