We came up the Fosse Way in Clare's GT last night. Very unpleasant. Bang, crash, thump, scrape.
I have noticed over a few posts that you don't reckon so much to the build/handling of the GT. I've found it strange because mine is so good, even compared to my Brother's (ex) 159 lusso. I think it's a shame to have the car and not see for a few quid if you can bring it together. When I first got mine the ride was pretty bad for my tastes, phone holder would go flying all the time, even on the A1, it'd tramline, confidence at speed was no good. It already had Eibach pro kit springs, Koni FSD'S, upper strut brace and VGC Pirelli P zero rosso on 18's, but I was ready to sell it or change the suspension as I just didn't like the car.
I had Autolusso put a new wishbone on, new set of Michellin PS3, 4 wheel alignment and since then (2 years maybe) it's been such a superb ride, so together, tight.
You don't appear to be a Guy that fears putting some well aimed funds into your cars, you should give it a whirl. Nor am I the sort of Guy to say how brilliant suspension is just because I've spent a load on it. It really is incredible, just wish I could get my old 156 feeling somewhere near it
maybe some individual cars are just not meant to be.
