Looks like a great clean example in good nick there.

Just an observation from the photo though fella, the os front brake disc looks really scored have you a sticking caliper or maybe due a change there mate.

looks very neat

The NSF brake disk does look scored, is it? Did I see you recently posted something about a brake change...

still got quite a bit to do though

1 re gas air con

2 when i come off the gas then feather it it seems like the engine is being held back like its being choked any ideas (Egr has been done) any ideas?

3 the drivers door and wing has been resprayed and is a darker shade of grey (seen in my profile pic) that's got to be sorted!

4 refurb alloys in gloss black

5 probably get a spoiler or sort out laquer peel on the oem tail.

6 Remap then soon after clutch!

You have quite a list already, hopefully you'll keep on top of it.

re: hesitation, have you had your fuel filter changed recently? Is it an OEM item?

What miles has the vehicle covered?
