If they ever make an EGP 1.5L Turbo Coupe Touring, with a 6 speed manual transmission, I'm in BIG trouble.....
Great looking cars on this thread!!!
Thanks to all.

Yep, Canada gets the EGP. They didn't have one on the lot when we bought ours, so all I had to go by was the colour chip on the site and I just thought "No way! It's too loud!!!"
Then I saw one in real life.
Then I discovered this thread....
Now, I'm hooked.
I just love the way the colour tone (?) changes on the body. It shows off the body lines really well, too. It pops like no other colour on the road. The thing for me is, I'd only ever want to race that kind of a car...on a track...with a manual transmission. I'd have a hard time driving that one slow. For me, the White Orchid Pearl is cool looking, but kind of tame. Then, because ours is an automatic, I'm driving as sensibly as my Father would. Which is good, but I'd really like to put one of these through it's paces on a track (Wiki link: Mosport Park Raceway, Ontario, Canada.) I grew up camping there every weekend. I ran my Classic Mini on that track a few times. Great fun! The EGP with a stick-shift would be a blast on that track. Don't get me wrong, the paddle shifters (sorry U.S.) on our WOP are great. I actually can't believe how well they act and feel like a standard. But with no clutch and no stick, the paddle shifters just don't 'talk' to the car the same way a standard does. It's a feel thing, for me.
So, I'm happy with my WOP..ecstatic even, but I'll always pine for an EGP. I'll be lurking here a lot, drooling and hoping, maybe someday.....
Keep the pics coming!

I like the door guard, too. I wish mine had it. I'm checking my doors every time I get in it for dents, scratches.
Every time I see an EGP, it looks a different colour. Must be the Pearl. Seriously HOT machine you have there. Cool spoiler. Can't wait to see the bumper blacked out. I just stare at that pic...

Thanks..The side moulding was already on..just like the spoiler, trunk lining tray, window tint and the blue console light and the pin striping..Only thing is I like the touring rims better.. I'm going to change mine at some point..

One of the neat things about the WOP is that it's like a chameleon. The Pearl seems to reflect colours around it. Like camouflage. Here's mine pretending it's an EGP! (and the Touring rims...).

Ok, honest question here.

I own a wrecked burgundy night pearl sedan, that the collision shop is still hemming and hawing over hidden damage they're still finding. So I may be looking at a total on it. Sigh.

Anyway, if they do total it I've got full replacement within the first 15 months. I think 4 months counts. I was thinking of upgrading to a Touring model EGP coupe. How law enforcement magnetic ARE these beasts! Just curious about what you actual owners have experienced.
I get followed quite often by cops but it's mostly because they're looking at the car and when they see that I'm a sweet lady who wouldn't dare have a lead foot, they go away.:innocent: Lol... but I play with the Turbo quite often on the beltway.:headbang:

I've only ever owned a stick shift and every day, at least once, I go to step on the clutch and shift! Thank goodness I haven't screwed up this car yet but I miss having a manual coupe.:cry:
