Made it home last night. Needs a bit of fettling before regular use (n/side CV joint clicking, bit of a "whirring" noise just above idling speed so belts, tensioners and water pump on urgent list!) Otherwise a good wee car.
The dreadful Ripspeed CD Player has been immediately replaced by a JVC headunit and the chrome "pimp my ride" wheels will be next on the list. They are 100+ 18" multifits and they need some serious cleaning! Mind you the tyres are all almost new and the same size as my GT....
Probably stick the spare 156 teledials on for now. I will try 5mm spacers - not a great fan of spacers unless they are hubcentric, but 5mm still leaves plenty of the hub centre for the wheel to sit on - to bring the offset closer to the GTV's.
I will post some photos when the gale stops howling!
