So what is it about the other modes that isn't "smooth"? My experience is more the opposite, but I fully accept the S and SS have their place depending on your driving style and intentions.

What intrigues me with this is the Z on the VIN plate. Do you believe it to have been applied at manufacture or added in some way by a dealer? In Japan I presume? What is on the V5 and have you ever...

Based on the ad there are lots of differences to a UK Extreme - for example, seats, aircon (as you know), dash clocks, boot garnish lights (none), rear wiper (shouldn't have one), wheels, radio...

The Zero Fighter E6 is more myth than reality. The nearest for the UK market was the 6 Extreme.

When you say “digital”, do you mean the heater unit? That denotes climate control, but the UK...

Yes to the pump being re-sited in the boot. Autotorque do a kit, but it's a bit pricey imo (£400ish?), but I'm pretty sure there was a thread from earlier in the year by someone who had made...

Definitely oil level? I would try overfilling by half a litre. Are you seeing any/much oil in the catch tank?

The X has a timing chain rather than a belt (ie different to all the earlier Evos). Checking for stretch is theoretically possible using a MUT 3 tool, but a more reliable way is to whip off the...

Thinking about it, the situations I recall may well have been where dry sump systems had been fitted and therefore not receptive to using a power tool on the normal oil pump shaft. It seemed to work...

As far a I recall my engine builder used to turn the engine over by hand until oil appeared in the top of the head. But he was a stickler for that kind of thing.

The model number and make has changed multiple times over the years. I think the main thing is to replace the original with new and do it again each 20k miles or so. The problem is there's no visible...

Afaik Boris voted against the May deal twice and then voted for it on the last occasion it was put before Parliament. He's never given any indication (since 2016) of wanting to remain.
