So, two years on I figure it's time for an update! Since I got the car it's gone almost 10 thousand miles, which must have been a wake up after only 14 thousand in the twelve years prior. It's driving smoothly & the engine is as you would imagine for the milage! Still really enjoying it as a daily driver & amused by the absurdity of the engine (pulling along at 25 quietly in 5th always amuses me, along with the truely jackal and Hyde nature of the turbocharger).
Downsides, there have been one or two.
? The sunroof leaked (though this was patched with gorilla tape I have yet to impliment something more tasteful).
? Settings 1 & 2 on the fans do nothing, with 3 & 4 functioning fine.
The question is where to go from here, how much more power is there untapped & what effect would this have on fuel economy (64.5 mpg on the motorway is real nice!).
