    it had been stood for a bit with a flat battery...stuck a new battery on it & shortly after got 'ANTI-SKID SERVICE REQUIRED' & 'ON-CALL SERVICE REQUIRED that's all so far. Oh and possibly a coolant leak...


    (best dramatic music I could find)

    although it's been shimmed so should be OK..!!

    ours is flash green too

    What colour interior has that one got? Looks like blue from the pic. Only bit I don't like is the colour coded door and bumper strips.

    not wrong there mate, promised myself I would sell two cars & only managed to get rid of the 480. Two more need to go really...if I was sensible I would sell the 21 Quadra but I didn't get where I am today by being sensible, wherever that is

    I remember you or Rich saying, obviously you have good taste

    Interior is dark blue yes. Aye not 100% sold on the colour coded bits & bobs, doesn't look to bad in the flesh

    ///////////////

    RX7 manages 22 mpg although that is going steady, push the R a bit & easy to get below 20...! Not a bad mover for a big car

    That was thrashing it a bit around familiar roads in Durham, to see how it compares to other cars. Went through a stretch of (private) dual carriageway at 95 without getting too wobbly. In the r5 on the same bit of road, 70 feels like a land speed record...it's a short, uphill bumpy section with 3 bends. I've yet to take it on the real tester, where the s70 can go through at 120. Another private single carriageway - uphill again but straight & fairly smooth

    These cars are very deceptive, When driving fast you just dont think you are until you look at the speedo , exhaust is not stock ?.

    You're right there Harvey caught me out a few times already. Ferrita cat back it is & if I'm honest suspect too much back pressure - very quiet for a performance exhaust

    I prefer the BSR system to the Ferrita dp and catback I had, the Ferrita came alive at higher rpm and both sound good in the hindhead tunnel.

    Nice little project James. If that's genuine very rare to see such a low mileage example! Are they 17" pegs?
    Arguing is pointless....she may not be right but she's never wrong

    Tell her a remap is just having your satnav updated.....
