MadDogMoggy is on a distinguished road
Default First Drive

Had my first drive of the 5Exi-R on the roads today: I had it booked in at a local garage to put on their emissions machine and to adjust one of the headlights.

Car goes really well, although I don't think I actually went above 50mph or so. I was quite nervous, plus it seemed very 'twitchy'. The journey was only about 4.5 miles each way, with about 2 of it being on a (not particularly smooth) 'A' road.

No doubt after the IVA retest I'll be after suspension set-up tips. I already have the bits for BigRich's rear suspension mod and will be fitting that first.
