Re: Lounge, Start Stop and Suspension

Regarding the suspension. I drove a 1.2 with 15" wheels with the revised suspension. It was very comfortable. Not at all too bouncy on poor roads. I'd imagine it would still perform well with 16's.

I have 15's on my 1.4 because i prefer the design and ive not seen anyone else with them. Plus the 1.4 has a firmer suspension - didnt want to make it too bumpy with 16's.

Have you booked a date for your 1.4 Sport with the 'local' photographer ? I found it hard to get some decent pictures of my old sport when I was putting in on the market last November - I couldn't get the 'right' angles the way that RUI seems to get them.

I'm assuming you have the standard Sport wheels or did your car have the '2 tone' ones ?
