Picked up this little beauty today - and about time too.....

It is the sweetest thing to drive and any worries about the Sport Pack "sports" suspension have just melted away. The springs and dampers are a superb combination and I've now tested them on some of the worst local roads that I'll be using. And I'd forgotten just how delicate and communicative the steering is with the standard 175 fronts (the Exige on 195 A048s being rather more "heafty"!!).

 

Love those forged alloys too.

 

Got to use massive retraint during the running in period now, but already got the car booked in for the 1000 mile service :-)).

I have never met you - but I think I hate you

 

Thanks Rocketian, and just to rub salt into the wounds..... here is what it looks like after four hours of intensive care at Eric's Detailing Ltd (aka my garage).

 

Did 250 miles in it yesterday, so by my reckoning, and with a well oiled calculator, that's 25% of the way to being fully run-in - yeehaaa.
