Metro GTI cars were rather underrated. My dad had a lovely example about the time I passed my test. He purchased that and I had a 1.0 Metro Mk2 as my first car. No jealously (ever) when they were parked side by side. Honest lol.
Strangely enough saw an identical example to my first car a couple of years ago and purchased it as a novelty to have in the garage. I know they get a lot of flack but it puts a smile on my face each time I look at it. Memories of my distant youth.
