Cheers guys, that's a little more reassuring. Bit worrying the amount I've read about issues though. Seems to be affecting the FK8 more so than the FK2 which is bizarre. Want to test drive a 2 as well as I quite like them although they do look older in style than the 8. People have said they're brutal but coming from a lowered, rock solid polybushed DC5 I imagine it'll feel like a Rolls Royce in comparison. Lol

Seems to be hit and miss to whether you have the lock out issue or not, I personally have not had the issue at all on my FK8..

Crazy, yeah the Fk2 is more raw than the Fk8. The Fk8 is more refined, quieter and has a more comfortable ride. I think the thing to bear in mind is that the Fk2 was born at the end of that model range which had been out for ages and the Fk8 was born towards and intended from the start and is the more modern car. I loved my Fk2 but health issues meant I needed a more comfortable ride.
