    Is it wrong to want one of these ?

    Bearing in mind though the main reasons it gets a crap score is how much it'll hurt pedestrians (well look before you cross the road then) and safety assist guff (oh noes poor Wiggo-wannabes), I'm not sure I'd be remotely bothered in the slightest. Does anyone actually care about NCAP these days? Other than Volvo and over-protective parents?

    Will we get another separate thread for the pics?

    General car prices

    Massive bargain. Why do people get so scared when a car hits 100k miles still?! Let's assume it needs £2.5K worth of wear and tear work, it's still cheap.

    Yes. Very wrong. Unless it’s in poverty spec for the supposed £16k list, in which case get in the queue as I want one too!
  7. The Caramic stuff? Never used it, normally I’d be completely disinterested given they use wipes rather than a liquid but AF stuff is usually quite good so... I’ll just defer to @ilogikal1 on this methinks

    Most major manufacturers own their own finance companies these days, it’s a massive source of extra profit for them given that so many people do PCP these days. That said, I don’t for one second think that it’s grounds to reject a vehicle for some poor quality leather, in case anyone is planning on those lines. I know we’re talking about BR’s alignment issues atm, I just didn’t want to confuse matters given the subject title.

    New Project - maybe???

    As much as I always wanted more power on the roads when I had my MX5, on track it really wasn’t an issue at all as I had much more freedom to allow me to work the chassis harder where you really shouldn’t on the road! Sometimes it’s fun just to exploit what you’ve got and be *that* person on track days that’s holding everyone up for a change I mean, since you have something with more power to use anyway then it’s a no brained to concentrate purely on suspension and brakes on this one

    Sorry, I was aiming that at @Bikeracer. His issues have been on going for some time, and I thought he’d returned it as Nissan had agreed to take it back after he went legal on their ass. Tbh, I’d be mad too. I’d potentially be referring it back to my credit card or finance company (unless you paid cash) as well for some extra clout.

    Tightening torques

    There are two torque specs that cover any bolt ever: just enough, or f***ing tight

    Differential Thud/Clunk Sound

    Was the noise there on the test drive? Even a little bit? The warranty isn’t relevant here, the CRA protects you far more. Worth pointing out too that if they insist you bring the car back to them for diagnosis (and tbh they really should if they’ve any common sense), then you’ll have to do so. It’s not their fault you live a distance away, after all.
