Failing the doorstep
Join Date: Aug 2016
Been smoking about in this car for a few days now, put about 200 miles on it. What a performer, handles the twisty stuff well and is a dream to drive on the motorway.
No major issues other than a whistle at speed (the drivers door seal looks like it's been attacked by a dog who's bitten chunks out of it) and a "clonk" from the front right now and again
The clonk sounds like a worn bush, bigger bumps or dips in the road surface will influence it. I had a look under there while changing the oil & filter and couldn't see anything obviously worn, any hints or tips? Whatever it is causing that clonk, it's not affecting the handling.
Still not changed the tyres yet, the rears need doing first, I think a pair of Nexen's will find their way on. I've had them on my MGF for a year now, no issues with them.
