    Fast and Furious with 500E or 190E 2.5-16

    Ok - lets imagine you had to pick an undercover police car to chase the fast and furious baddies that can‘t shift and have neon lights in the next movie 190E 2.5-16 or 500E?

    Assuming you want to keep them in sight, pick the 500E.

    Right? I mean technically its called the "500eboard.com" As much as I like them, its not called the "oneninetyEtwopointfivedash16board.com"

    Those vehicles have their own forum at 190Revolution.net, last time I checked.

    The handling it much better on a 16valve.
    Engine are not to fast, but it's easyer to tune the engine than remove weight and size.

    The 190E Cossie certainly feels a quicker car off the mark and more alive... The 500E definitely has the top end though..

    So an inner city chase, id probably say 190E.
    For a highway type pursuit the 500E.

    I'll take the 500E in all cases. I think IF there's a handling difference on the 190E, it's not enough to overcome everything else (strength, speed, durability). And I'm frankly not sold on the handling difference.

    I would have offered the same solution as Jaymanek. I haven't driven a 190 Cossie, but would have assumed that the 190 would offer greater agility in the confines of an inner city environment - and thus have an advantage over the E500E, as the E500E has never (as far as I know) been recognised as a "sportster", but rather as a long distance tourer?

    However, if there are any prizes for the answer, maybe the clue is in the question - which states "fast and furious". That definitely sounds more E500E than 190!
