For new and potential owners, here is a video that I made today talking about my thoughts of the car.

great video Em. - and nice to see my car's twin again cheers

I thought you gave a very honest opinion of the car (difficult when you love it to bits doh) and its little foibles.

I had to chuckle re. 'giving it some welly in second on a roundabout' - just don't ask me how I know about this innocent

I've not seen her with the black wheels before but I think they look ace - I have been tempted too.....

Did you just have them normal powder coated or was it some special process for the mag. wheels - it can be very confusing!

What did the re-furb guy recommend re. the hairline cracks; is it OK to use still?

I note that you are going to get some paintwork done in the Autumn; mine was done last year and I must say I am delighted with the results.

Well done again for posting this - It will be a great help to anyone looking to buy thumbs

I hope we get to meet up again in the not too distant future; take care

James

Hi James, the welds are smooth on the inside and proud on the outside balancing was a bit of a faff. The wheels are powdercoated if you have a crack most alloy wheel guys cant weld them you need someone that can magnesium weld.Looking forward to meeting up again so the twins can be together, glad you liked the video.

Regards,
Em

That is good to know regarding you being able to weld the wheels.

As an S1 owner, I enjoyed watching that & I'd say it is a pretty balanced owner's view. The only car I've ever owned that I'll not sell until I'm too old to drive
