"a small hatch " ???
do you have chickens as well as a donkey
are you setting up a small holding  :P

all joking aside , how is it ? have you investigated the cambelt yet ?

Unless I find some tippex marks or similar under the cover then I reckon I will be changing it in the near future. Watched a video on youtube last night and it looks like a right pita, but if it has to be done.... ::)

They aren't too bad to do,early ones had the crank sprocket not keyed so much care and correct lock  kit required,later ones are keyed  so easier to deal with

Although I hate to admit it, it actually isn't a bad little car to drive, in its own cheap plasticy way.  :-[ :D

To get the best from your new car Albs, you need to learn to drive like the French!  :y

Drove my grandaughters home from Bedford when she fell ill and had to go home to Mum. Was quite a fun drive down the A428/A14. A bit tinny and plasticky though. She now has a Sytner customised Mini, chavtastic. 8)

He's just observing the first rule of driving a "tin snail": NEVER lift your right foot. ;D

Ive had years of practice in that technique with the old 190D. Like driving a truck, if you lift your foot it takes way too long to get back up to speed, so its to be avoided at all costs.  ;D

Ah yes, but you're going from riding a semi retired German cart horse to mounting a just broken in French filly who likes plenty of the whip!  :)

Small French cars thrive on the red line!  :y

I agree, Mr Beanz.

 Despite this I'll take one SM, one Facel Vega, along with a brace of Bugatti, the other well known Frenchie. :y
