    i picked it up a week past monday and only got to do 400 miles in it before i left to come back to work. Im very happy with it but it has some things needing fixed already like

    the passenger seat has a small cut in it where they have been removing the plastic covers with a stanley knife:wtf:

    also the sharkfin aerial is discoloured

    plus i had the RAC out after 6 hours of ownership apparently there was a vacuum hose off on the engine.

    heres a couple of **** pics

    what i mean to say is anything i do will be beneficial instead of putting on big wheels and lowering it to the weeds. I fancy the H&R springs as my dad had them fitted and his sits just nice in my opinion. Then just a remap and leave it alone
