    Hi everyone,

    had mine a little under four months and 3800 miles done  since. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the purchase. I’ve had a number of sports and track cars over the years but this is, without doubt, the best car I’ve ever had. It’s my daily driver and I’ve specced it with every option except the shell seats (too old to climb in and out of those) and the forged alloys. Alloys were a cock up by the dealer (ordered but they forgot to update the system???) but I’m very happy with the standard set up

    I’m waiting on a call back from Mountune for install date for the MP375 kit I purchased today so will give some feedback when it’s installed.

    Best extra is the £85 door protectors  if you’ve not seen them before here’s a video


    To anyone still thinking about ordering one – stop thinking. It will make you a happier person.

    I’ve got a magnetic also. Fantastic colour, and the most subtle by far!

    Altogether really pleased with the car, although a little thirsty, it’s all about the smiles per gallon, not miles!!!!!

    Really glad you are pleased Alan and love the quote it should have been Ford’s advertising campaign…

    ha ha nice one ! I wish mine would bloooody turn up, I need cheering up bigtime! having a right old time with my RS1600, took the engine and gbox out for a noisy clutch release bearing, had a look inside the engine while at it, bottom end as new, but ive ended up with new valve guides, a few new valves, had to reshim the head, modify clutch release arm pivot , stripped and rebuilt gearbox, re-wrap exhaust manifold, put it all in yesterday hoping for a start up today and couldnt bleed the hydraulic clutch as now the bloooody clutch master cylinder is pishing out fluid on floor mat so now Ive had to take all the poxy pedal box out…. the garage is in a right state and I am too !! not happy dot com.

    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Hi guys and thanks for the welcome.

    Mike, you sound like you’re having fun though and it’ll be worth it when you go for your first blast

    Got a call from Fred at mountune today to get me booked in next week for the power upgrade (FPM 375). Very impressed with the process so far and I’ll be sure to let you know how I get on. I’ll need to let the insurers know I guess, have any of you got experience or words of advice.
