    picked her up at dinner 500 mlies round trip and it was fantastic :D
    no niggles no bumps or lumps feels like iv had her for years...altho i may have got caught out on the M25 with the speed camera :-s ...bloody third gear...! :ymdevil:
    the ride it very different to the 1.9 ...much more tighter...we filled both Zeds up in London and they have both used about a tank on the way home..so im chuffed to bits that its not as bad on the fuel as i thought it was going to be :ymhug:
    the sound off her is something else...love it :ymhug:
    shes on the drive now with the other one and looks like she belongs ;)
    happy as a pig in s**t :coolsteer)

    ps the guy in the Lotus didnt want to play :ymdevil:

    Under normal driving they are good on fuel, it's the lead right foot that costs money :ymdevil:

    It is also worth using premium fuel rather than 95 ;)

    I held a clean licence for over 35years till I got the ///M
    As Gazza said with the petrol, try and keep to Shell V Power the car loves it

    +1 for that. I find the S50 doesn't like the regular stuff at all
