    Did you do up the pinch bolts correctly?

    I just bought one to scratch the V8 itch before going electric. Got 33mpg driving from Heathrow to East Mids. I know that’s not great but with 500bhp it’s not bad…. I do cycle to work so it does, in my self centred and broken logic, offset the poor eco credentials (…[Read more]
