    Hello!

    Joined up today as I'm on the look out for a tidy RS 200 to replace my wee Honda.

    Looking forward to reading some of the project threads and looking to learn up as much as I can about the RS 200 so that I know what to look out for when buying one.

    Not sure on exact spec yet but has to have the Recaro seats!

    Thank you! have been reading it and some excellent info in there. I guess I really need a test run to find out more. I had a 172 Cup a few years ago but did not fall in love with it tbh. Hoping the RS 200 will tick the boxes though!

    Thanks again for the warm welcome! i'm noticing a few 197s about and the look pretty sweet too! Unsure which way to go as i already have a modded Evo 9 GT for weekend use - it is off the road for winter just now though.

    Welcome along Gordon

    Another one here, from a 172 (via a EP3 Type R, a Twingo RS133, a Honda CRZ and a FN2 Type R) to a RS200 in Liquid Yellow with recaros.

    The journey has been fun :sunglasses:

    Happy hunting

    Welcome to the forum, good to hear you've found it friendly and useful so far!

    Good luck with the search. Not much in it performance-wise with the 197 and 200, just a preference on looks and the obvious age/mileage differences.
