So... After about +200km driving her... Its absolutely amazing!

Engine is great! Power delivery is smooth and when turbo kicks in, there is some good power. Didnt go higher revs, much. Actually, there is no need to go to the limiter, its obvious that little turbo runs out of steam at max revs. But from 4000 to 6500 there is so much grunt.

Chassis and suspension are great. Dunno if she has some stiffer suspension components, but owner said that it is stock. In motor way, really easy to cruise. And in winding country roads, brilliant. Really easy to drive at the citys too...

Just came from my brothers. We went thru basically whole car. Offcourse she has some little bad points, she is an old car. But overall condition is absolutely stunning...

I AM SO FRICKIN HAPPY!!!

I know the feeling well, I could not believe how nice it is to drive in traffic & the open road.   Same colour as mine which is also stock.   Check the plastic pipes from the hood that run down by the door pillars through the floor....they tend to get blocked...........Have fun :great:

Lol I tryed to explain to her what that one gauge (boost) means, and what that sudden surge of power is and why. Now she says that "make it go turbo again"

Previous owner had checked those. And now they should not cause any problems. I will go thru whole car when I have time.

Thanks, I am having fun!

Right back muffler is gone. MOT man said that it needs to be change to next MOT. But previous owner told me about it and its not a problem...

So, because of that, I vent to check Racing Beat catalog. And went thru it, finding all kind of nice parts  :great: Full RB exhaust system would be awesome...  :P

This car is really stock condition, it has air pump on it and working  :))

Just find a weird thing. You know those white little lights below popup lights...? This model has no lights in there!  Just white linces...

Doesent UK and US spec models have lights there? I thought they have...

 I think Ill try to find those. Then I can drive without usings popup lights. Cause our laws says that lights needs to be on, all time

That's normal Jarno (flash to pass) flash your main beam and it illuminates them when flashing people in rather than lifting the motors.
You should be able to stick some led running lamps in there if need be.
