steering wheel melts.

Idon't beleive the kangarooing thing tbh. My 197 is very similiar to my 182 on cold. It is what I would call ''tempermental'' of a tuned engine. Never had kangarooing like people say. I reckon that is more down to how the average owner treats it. IT is just hesitant when cold until it gets going a bit.

Haven't had any other problems though.

Yeah I have the same problem rather funny as I have a de-cat fitted aswell, so it pops a bit and surely makes people think ive stolen the car haha
 
I've had/got:

Squeaking subframe
Premature wear to seat bolsters
Bubbling paint on alloys
Rust spots on bumper and underside of boot lid - this was from bits of metal fallen inside the boot skin from when they attached the cup spoiler.
Air-con not cold
Exhaust blows from cat to centre section join when cold
Clutch release bearing (I think) sticks when cold.

Think thats it. Cars 10k and 12 months old.
