Description
I purchased the coupe about 8 years ago as an upgrade from my Williams Clio. Originally I wanted to keep it totally standard but when the dump valve failed I replaced it with a forge unit. Since then its been a slippery slope........

It still brings a smile to my face everytime I drive it. There is no other car that ticked all the boxes, and I'd only ever replace it with something completely mental like a 4.5 cerbera.
