I'm sure it will be fine mate. IMO providing its of good quality there won't be an issue.
Haha! I probably would. The all round grip and pace of the standard one really impressed me. Since my last post my moms been in it and now she wants one so hopefully I van persuade her into having oneDrive a 300bhp one. You would probably want to sell body organs to fund one if you liked a standard car.
ps, not saying you can't afford one without the sale of body parts btw.
My old one was RR'd (somewhere?) at 315 .. 300 between 5 & 7 and peaked somewhere around 6ish.. 433Nm @ about 3-4k was unreal. Would out pull my mate's E46///M3 mid range .. he'd catch up at the top and I'd change gear and repeat until hundy-and-whatnow. Dead even overall.320 in a classic must go like a fcuking rocket ship!!
\What kind of Bhp increase does a bug/blob need for similar performance? Would 50 bhp more. Make up for the extra weight?
I hope (in the nicest possible way) it's an external leak if you know what I mean. Checked your oil?My car isn't holding coolant :dapprove: Checked it a few days ago and it was low, filled up, checked it again this morning and it was low, popped over to mechanics and he said there is 100% a leak somewhere, just need to leave it a few hours to properly cool down so we can check. He's popping round at 5 or 6 to check it through, hopefully sort it now before it escalates!
Haven't checked it today actually but it's new ish oil and filter, everything looks clean up top so it's definitely not leaking near the rad or oil cap, no gunk or anything.I hope (in the nicest possible way) it's an external leak if you know what I mean. Checked your oil?
It's a bit worrying that you're not seeing anything on the floor although it could just be leaking when moving. Fingers crossed anyway.Haven't checked it today actually but it's new ish oil and filter, everything looks clean up top so it's definitely not leaking near the rad or oil cap, no gunk or anything.
If it's got an undertray fitted and there is a leak, you'll struggle to see it. I'd remove the undertray, then park it up running for 20 mins or so. If there's a leak you'll see it on the floor.Temp gauge was high, hot air ok. No funny smells in the car, although when the bonnet was up first thing I could smell was coolant.
