Newbie Intro!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm Matty and I've just purchased a T reg GTV V6 in metallic green. After 7 years of riding sports bikes I finally decided I couldn't cope with another winter of freezing and was gonna buy a cheap run a round.

That was untill I saw a GTV in my local garage did a few test drives and ended up with a V6!

Anyway I love it! It seems to be in pretty good working order but, what I would like to know is what are the things I should check, upgrade or replace to keep the car running at its best.

I'm fairly mechanically minded and usually service my own vehicles, motorbikes and cars so any advice would be great.
