    Default Hello from Basingstoke

    Hi all, I've recently bought a 58 plate 1.8 vvt and am having lots of fun revving it to get it to move =) Couple of initial observations:

    1) The wheels spin up and lock under braking much more easily than I was expecting. The ABS does its job but cuts in under what I would consider moderate braking

    2) The suspension seems underdamped - I feel like I'm on a waterbed sometimes

    Anyway, thought I'd say hello and looking forward to learning lots from the forum.

    Adam

    Hi from Farnborough
    You can lower by upto 30mm without changing the shocks = no more waterbed
