Afternoon !

I've been looking at this site and the SXOC for a while trying to decide on a second car which is now venturing more towards the S15 :D

I fell in love with this S15 at first site


About me:
I'll be 21 in March
I live on the Isle of Wight in the UK
I work as a IT Technician for the only college on the island
I currently own and drive a Series 2 Escort RS Turbo (got to love a 16year old car out accelerating most things :p)

Couple q's:
I assume the S15 is a 2 seater ?
Whats the average MPG for a mildy tuned S15 ? (mildy meaning exhaust, filter, boot increase)

Nice site guys ! Keep it up !
 

Nicely

Moving on...

Hello and welcome. :wave:

The S15 is a 2+2.

Fuel consumption will start at around 27-35mpg depending on how :ghey: your right foot is. This will steadily decrease as the mods increase :p, though not as much as you'd expect. I'm running 326bhp and return on average 25-27mpg. Getting your fuelling sorted will make a difference (via a fuelling computer or chip)...

Oh thats a nice S15 :D

I was actually quite suprised over the fuel consumption of the S15. Much lower than I would have thought.
Managed to drive about 420km on 37L of fuel when driving the baby home from Gothenburg after Swedish MOT.
That was with a close to stock car. Only 3" exhaust from turbo elbow.
Mostly highway though but I had some moments where the stock 180km/h speedo wasn't enough ;)

You can fit 4 grown up people in the S15. If none of them is to tall that is. I think people over 180cm tall might poke their heads in the roof if seated in the back. And the legs would be stuck under the front seats. But it's doable.

Oh, almost forgot.
Welcome :wave:

I choose one without a spoiler because I think it looks so sleek :)
And rare..
How many black S15 is there in Europe?
How many black de-spoilered S15 is there in Europe? :D

Well if you plan to buy a full body-kit never mind the Aero-package (If you don't want the rear wing badly)
Just can't manage to raise the money for it as I spend it on other mods all the time :(

If you wan't to get a S15 for a good price I recommend doing it the same way I did. except the Swedish part of it.

You could probobly do the UK side by yourself and save some nice ?.
Just get a high grade S15 in stock condition and you'll have no problems.

Merry X-mas

Welcome to you, if you are looking to buy an S15 make sure you get all the documentation check before you buy to insure you know exactly what you are buying :nod: :thumbs:
