Great video mate, and lovely to see you're getting along with it.

 

I love my V6 too and agree it is a superb if rather expensive wafter for motorways (wind noise aside) if you want to make good progress. 

 

I take it you always knock it into Sport mode to get that luscious noise from a standing start ?

 

If there was a bit more low-down torque this'd be a monster but you're right - it's a dignified motor that doesn't befit such hooliganism :)

 

Is your sunroof broken, Ian, as mine does tilt and also fully slides back ?

 

Perhaps we can compare notes at the next Cannock if you're bringing yours. Bet yours hasn't got a lovely dent in it. Or mismatched door handles (assuming I crack that job !). And do you bang your head when getting in - I still keep doing that !

I don't always engage sport mode, but when I do, I like it.

 

Sunroof is broken. Goes back about 1cm.

 

Mine has PLENTY of dents in it (ex-Eastbourne) and also has a mismatched door handle, because Reg Bollox is colour blind. :P 

 

Haven't smacked my head yet...

obviously what this rhonda needs is a spare airbox that you can drill strategically placed*, highly accurate* holes in for maximum aural pleasure without having to lower the mpg thrash the bejesus out of it :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

 

*i honestly didnt do this with an mg maestro  ;-)
