    Just like that one, its a good car, but mine is just under 100k Miles, has some wierd engine problem and the AC is broke from an idiot working on it from a blown head gasket. it is very close to going to the graveyard... All in all its a good car, nice fast stick shift and roomy. Just a PITA when it comes to repairs... Ill post pics of mine once its daylight...

    That's interesting - that's pretty much a Ford Mondeo over here. Good cars.

    It's actually much smaller. They had the Mk1 and Mk2 Mondeo over there - It was called the Contour.

    I full heatedly agree bro, however some things can be done to get that live rear in control. I am ordering a watts link this Tues and will be installing it soon in my car. I will report how well it tames the rear. Also stiffer control arms like the billet roush ones will tame the rear slightly.

    I love seeing a fellow mustang brother from the UK. You guys rock.

    I know a few people with watts linkages on the rear... makes a sizeable improvement. I'm not really fussed though, as I'm actually happy with it as it is. Apart from a Bama chips tune it's standard.

    There are more of us over here than you think. Head on over to www.mocgb.net or www.s197.co.uk to see :)

    An interesting point. I recently took a few mods off my car due to a change in circumstances making my insurance premiums rise, so it just wasn't worth the money having it modified. To be honest, it was the best thing I could've done. I stopped trying to improve the car and just learnt how to drive it better, plus I've saved a heap of cash.

    1.9 CDTi 150ps, soon to either have a DTUK box fitted or a remap, not sure yet, might go for the remap to limit the torque in first and second tho, last thing I need is the gearbox exploding :D
