Optima have now replaced the totally shot (which Dave should have been, for selling me the car with them on!) front shocks, and I can stop bouncing up & down the motorways! It says a lot for the car that I have been enjoying rapturous trips to date anyway, even with the duff shocks. Things just get better! (I should know not to say this!…). Optima have also fitted the GT mesh over the two radiator ‘nostrils’, sprayed black, which has further improved the look of the car and also removed the temptation for little oiks to chuck their empty Coke cans in there! Driving continues to be a massive buzz, but still fairly cautious in the rain after many impromptu wheel spins.
