Come down from London and meet us South East lot and you will learn a thing or two. MLR South East and Kent or off to the Bolney Meet if you interested.


Bolney is down the M23 towards Brighton :D

If you cant find super just keep sticking £10 of unleaded in with some octane booster until you can find the good stuff! Still a good idea to take it easy when on regular unleaded.

Where bouts in London?

no but it has a massive exhaust and the engines sounds like it farts at 4000 rpm.. is that normal? but its a low fart rather than a massive dirty whoosh.. if that makes sense...

its like between 3 and 4 when i shift gears it makes this noise.. but then if i go to 5000 it doesnt make the noise.. only happens when it shifts gear.. suppose it could happen at higher revs but only really noticed it between 3 and 4 000..

Good choice. :D

I've had mine 12 months now and my jaws still hurt from smiling. :) :D

.........hey, and when your smilin the whole world smiles with you. Except Saxo drivers. Nova drivers. Subaru drivers. TT divers. BMW drivers etc etc. :lol:

Nice and sunny here IT'S POLISHING TIME!!
P.S. Try and get some Optimax in there soon but prepare for the extra cost. :( Worth it though.

AiD
