Hello hello, Yes I have some news, I fixed some under the hood. Before inspection I should change wire of speedo meter it consists of two pieces and my wire to the dashport is broken. New ones no more in Finland, does anyone in U.K. possible have that kind of? Very much interest to have not broken one.

That looks ace :D Just out of interest, what winter tyres have you got fitted? I've got Goodyear Ultragrip 8's on mine, which seem to have come out in tests as one of the best.

Hello, it is common in Finland that coolant liquid is 50/50 % so it can take -40-50 Celsius degree. In winter times it is recommended to use engine oil like 5w 40 fully synthetic. Still the engine's breather can be freeze and blows engine oils out :oops:

Winter tires are Michelin X-ices (friction tires)

Cheers!

I have a couple video clicks, but I have to make some modification before it is ready. Take some time. I have to say that we drive my car very roughly and it is still in one piece :D
