Hi folks,

just got my new one. So happy after having to give back my MK1 ( Co. cart) been watching the threads and all I can say is, "its great to see so many people enjoying such a fun car." Yet again have to get at least 6,000 on the clock to losten the baby up.

It probably isnt for me to say after having looked at the weight issue. All I can say is that there is no way a MK11 is 65Kilo heavier or a 10st person, after all it is a few sensors that work the climate and ESP. Still the same alluminium bonnet and composite wings.

Have to say the MKII handles better and feels just the same as my old one at the same mileage. Very hard one to call.

You will probably say what an A@@hole. Sorry Im an old git (39) and an ex "olBill" Im intersested in car controll and fun.

This is way too long and have not got the hang of forums.

£Would love to get in

Mk1 with lower springs make the car much better in the handling department. Well less twitchy and a lot less roll , and welcome.


cheers guys,

cant do much yet again a Co. sponsoed car.

Great to have done 1100 miles in 10 days. Had a Puma as a make shift. PLEASEEEE!!! dont laugh
