Missus not keen on the car

Needed some fuel so decided to use the Evo for going to the gym, itís only a couple of miles away but in that time my missus decided she doesnít like being in the Evo.

The ride is quite harsh on the Nitrons so it does a lot of bouncing . I didnít even put my foot down so it was all from sensible driving she made her decision. If I put my foot down she would of definitely hated it more

If its noisy, that is BAD, if its noisy and fast, that is really really BAD, if its noisy, fast and pulls the birds, best put the keys in the safe and keep the combination to yourself or you 'aint goin nowhere.
Funny how it all seems the same somehow

Although I guess this isn't exactly what you were looking for comments on when posting this thread, but I'd be rather concerned if I'd bought at set of Nitrons and found them to be "bouncing"! Are you sure you have them set correctly, or are that they even correctly specified for your car?
