I haven't had one of these for a quite few years but would would you guys let me know what you think this Flame Red 127 Mk2 is worth:
Thanks in advance!
Use the gear change light to guide you when to change up, in all gears and as long as the engine is nicely warmed up it will love it.
I found that my old car performed at its best when driven for about an hour as per the above.
Be brave - it can take it!
I think one benefit of the ECU is the incresed rev limit, which lets you do about 100 in 3rd and I understand, about 125 in 4th so I would imagine in a 0 - 100 dash youre saving 1 gear change...
The idle was fine after a few minutes first thing - I had the inlet manifold too.

Powerflow, sound fab but the quality isnt what I would expect - I had two mid-silencers go in about 2 years. The lifetime warranty appears to be only from the supplying dealer and is dependent on an annual inspection - from that same dealer.
Faults I had on my mk2, now no longer with me:
Airbag light - connection under passenger seat
Clunking from front suspension - strut top modification needed but not a guaranteed fix, I didnt bother and it seemed to make no difference to the handling.

If it doesnt work choose a good independent - that price for the...
You could try a independent (qualified) inspection of the car without mentioning the problems you are facing, so you wouldnt prejudice it. I dont think they are extortionate and it will be a report in writing which would help your case (if it needed to be made). If youve got car/home insurance...
As above really, thanks to those that did the hard work of organising the trip - special thanks to Yozza, Tony and Neil for all those mad bursts.
Got back last night @ 3am. It was the most fun I have had driving ever - hail the Highlands!:cool:
Not sure about 182s but for 172s I understood that full UK spec included the CAT1 alarm upgrade and locking wheel nuts...- otherwise its only technically got a CAT2 immobiliser as standard - check out the thatcham site..
I had a CAT 1 upgrade fitted to my car and all it added was the interior...
