Hello from Aberdeen!

Well, Aberdeenshire to be precise...

Just got my MPS week so thought I would see if there is anyone else about?

Cheers,

Dave

Stuno - Getting on fine with it now.  I had to fight the urge to sell it on after I got it as it's not something I would've ordinarily chosen.  However, a new baby on the scene has helped keep me sensible!  Now considering a few mods to it.  Got my corksport SRI but thinking of some eibach springs and perhaps an exhaust and remap. The mrs won't be happy though!!

Gordonr - I frequent the Linsmohr quite a lot for a sunday treat.  Great food and more importantly a decent pint!

Lol, sounds great! Not convinced there is anywhere that does a effective map on the MPS yet though but exhaust, and sri will see you running 280 ish at the fly. That would be great!

Glad you kept it. You wont regret it. Great practical car and a bit of a animal when you want it to be as well.

Aye, glad I kept it.  Your right it's the best of both and I think the thing that made me keep it in the end is that it can't really be matched IMO.

Think a remap would be a bit down the line if I was to do it - warranty issues worries me a little. (especially after the bother I had with the RX8)

Lowering would be nice but a bit undecided as I stay up a farm track so not sure it's that practical.
