    very nice.............love the colour, but not too keen on the wheels.

    Looks great, I don't think the wheels are that bad but it's a shame it hasn't got the XP wheels on. I don't know much about the 2.2 lumps but at 80k I'd want the timing and aux belts to have been done along with the water pump.

    This engine is chain driven mate but agree that due to the common chain snap prob of this engine I'd like to see the necesssary belts being replaced
