FIAT is okayish not that popular in Australia , and same goes for ALFA Romeo's one of my mate (indian guy) bought Alfa GT159 2009 Model and sold it in 3 months time thats how bad it was.
Honda cars if they are well tuned you can do alot with them. I am not a Honda Fan but in here you can get really nice modified car for cheap You have to love the sound of it.
Let me post a Video: honda civic type-r - YouTube
I have done last year a Punto T-Jet, which does still have the T-Jet cams in it, that does the 0 to 100kph in 6.7 seconds. The car has no reduction in weight.
Romeo Ferraris has done an endurance 500 T-Jet with 360bhp. The race distance covered represents 1,20,000kms in road driving.
Fiat won several times the S2000 cup and the S1600. In either cups the Japanese didn't fare to well.
Going back to Honda.When I see a Honda engine in bits I feel sick.
I have seen too many of them blown up.
The FIRE variants in India are very durable engines and can live with a lot of abuse. The 1600 engine is hopelessly over engineered and has extremely low failure rate.
Even the 1.3M-Jet is very good. One of my German competitors is extracting 160bhp out of it
Much more popular than Tuning Hondas in Europe are Audis, BMWs, Citroens, Fiats, Fords, Mercedes, Peugeots, Opel/Vauxhalls, Renaults and Volkswagens. Also you will find quite a few Porsche tuners despite the low production numbers.
However, Peter is looking a the Zen and he should get our support on it.
