    I'm in love, that should sum it up. Something has happened to me though, the whole reason I wanted one was because of my friends one, loud exhaust and lowered ect, but since picking mine up I'm not so sure I want to, the car oozes class, I'm scared any modification will detract from its maturity. Any ideas, the wheels are too small and there is too much arch but I don't want a hard ride now.
    Issues, there were always going to be a few, I have the 2k rpm miss, mostly when in second but can't say it bothers me. I have a clunk between gears, guessing it's the rear mount, I'm hoping Warrantee will cover this.
    Compared to my 8l, I find the vis a lot more accurate on the 8p as to what mileage you have left on the fuel.
    Generally driving slower now, knowing you have the power is nice and it's so smooth to cruise along, I just feel relaxed.
    My only gripe is the lack of heated seats, I thought that would be standard.
    So to sum it up, I'm so happy I got it.

    Cheers Kai

    Good to hear you like it mate. They are really nice cars and with a few mods, can look a lot better than standard IMO.

    Get some pics up and we can start spending your money for you! :laugh:

    Good news is that the mounts are covered in the warranty.
