Bingy Its got to be said that there are some creaks,but in my experience its no worse than in our friend`s MGF and TVR.
If you really thrash it down a bumpy b road you it can sometimes get a little out of kilter but most of the time its fine.
Most people reckon the 2 litre ts is better balanced than the 3 litre,although I`ve got to say next time we would be sorely tempted to go for the 3 litre.
If your mate gets one I would reccomend that its best if you leave the suspension alone and stick with the 16" wheels.
A little bit of scuttle shake is more than compensated by getting the roof down and enjoying listening to that engine singing away.Plus its gives an extra sense of speed.
Roof down cruising is possible even in the winter with the heater on max and its fairly bluster free even on the motorway.
Tell him to get a real car and give the Merc a miss!
