    Just picked this up :smiley: 75,000 miles, all belts etc done at ktec.

    Mods so far:
    Ktec super sport recessed catback exhaust system
    Ktec engine mounts (why is this a popular mod?)
    16' Turinis
    Cup spoiler
    ITG Maxogen induction kit
    And few other little bits.

    Planning on getting 4x Hancook v12 tyres but need to put some money aside for insurance first as only 18 so it isnt exactly cheap..

    Had a little run up and down the road in it, feels so spacious compared to the saxo vtr and scared myself a little!

    Not sure on yellow fogs, and want colour coded mirrors, not sure why it doesnt have them!

    Recommendations, points etc welcome.

    Sorry, how much did the car cost? As if it was sub £2k then why pay the same again for insurance?

    The car cost 1800.. At my age if you want a nice car the insurance is always gonna be more. My VTR cost me 700, the insurance was just under double.

    I think if I was on the end of the phone when told the value and then telling the price I would have to laugh.

    Insurance should be capped at vehicle value in my opinion. If paying more its kind of pointless!

    Nice car mate! I had my 182 at 18. Paid 1850 for insurance. I am 21 now and never regretted getting one so early. Worth every penny!!

    Thats mental, I've just bought a cup spoiler, ktec Coilovers and top mounts, ktec induction kit, anthracite turini's and a ktec recessed exhaust for my Flamer! 02 aswell!!

    My car will literally look like yours in a week's time.

    Youve done so so well buying that for £1800 though, with those mods id think it was worth more.

    Feels like i am driving a merc compared to the saxo, the inside feels so spacious and luxurious, and to think it is only 6months newer than the saxo is mad.

    I know this is a stupid question but it is driving me crazy! How do you toggle the mpg?

    My mate has a 1.2 with the stalk for radio controls etc, but refuses because 'it is so f**king obvious'. Ive tried all the buttons and it just does volume and scans the radio stations :confused:

    Went to drive to work yesterday, reversed off the drive fine, selected 1st and then there was just no drive :worried: just an awful grinding noise



    My guess is the driveshaft has come out of the gearbox :worried: - being recovered this morning and then to the mechanics
