it's very quick and responsive. the ride height is low enough to look nice, but high enough to deal with poor roads.

Motorway is fine, but the 02j box revs a bit high in 5th at around 100kph, which i assume is the same on any 02j car

i am loving this new phone!



Went out in the car yesterday after a quick clean and some weekend maintenance, the car feels really dialled in, the handling is lovely, the power delivery is great.. still need to go get the car booked in for some winter paint love. i want to get the engine stripped out again and painted as i never did that when putting it in, also the gearbox soda blasted and painted.



couldn't help but take more photos on the way home from a little met last night
