      What are the interior of these like compared to the lesser models? As an example, how does the interior compare to the I-Music, or the Extreme?
      We are looking at buying a fun small car at the moment (in addition to the Megane)... and an RS Twingo is on the list of possibles (along with the Twingo GT). Unfortunately, upon visiting our local Renault dealer on Sunday, we found they have neither model available as a demo... or even in the showroom to view. So, all we could look at were 4 different base models (I-Music & Extreme) .... in beige or silver ... WTF are they on !!!!

      Unfortunately, those base models did not give me (or my wife) a very good impression of the Twingo... so I am a bit miffed as prior to Sunday I had it at either #1 or #2 on the list. If only I could have gotten a good look at a GT or RS....

      RS twingos look like great cars. I was trying to talk the missus into buying one but she thought it looked to much like a "boys" car lol. She bought a 206cc instead.
      I wouldn't mind one myslelf.

      Love it :D

      Its a shame they didnt turbo the RS model, i hear you can get the GT to the same spec as the RS now as their are options available for it.

      We contemplated a GT with the RS bodykit but the special people that work at renault are adament that the body kit wont fit the GT's, just like they said you cant turn a regular megane into a replica lol....retards.

      Hope you have lots of fun in it mate, i test drove a GT and a RS and the RS was like a go kart :D makes you think anything is possible :P

      Not a lot, even if you remap it your going to get 5 maybe 10bhp, thats why i like the GT's you get quite a lot of BHP gains from a remap just because its a turbo lol

      Cant fault the GT 1.2 Turbo, remap you probs talking 120bhp easy i'd say thats enough to start giving the Twingo RS a run for its money the only problem is the GT looks like utter ****, especially with those stupid silver accessories

      Its not about the power on these little things, the handling and the way it feels is beyond belief , i cannot believe how well it corners and brakes. Its much more sure footed than either my old 172 and cup chassis 182 i had. and as far as the 1.2 tce GT i test drove well lets just say nothing about that!. the engine is going to be a sreamer, feels very similar to the clio 1*2 engines after 5k.
      If anyone is thinking of one i would highly recomend one, i have not driven the R26 since buying it ,the wife is in that , i bloody love driving this little thing.
