XPG Part 6

Always wanted a 180, been searching for years for the right one and finally took possession of Kevs/Garys/Jays/Dans/Micks ZS.



150 mile drive home was good fun, gave it the beans for the first time through the Handheld tunnel What a noise. Can't believe its took me so long to get one, but after losing my 120 last year after 10 years of ownership, I've been itching to get back in one. The performance and noise is spot on and better than I imagined. Feels like driving a racecar!

Car really is stunning for its age, just a few electrical niggles to sort, new battery , paint or wrap the vents and tidy up the small patch of rust on the roof.

Thanks to Mick for picking me up from the station and being a good sport in selling me such a great car. Finally got to see his famous track car aswell

Great to hear that you're so happy with it and it was worth the wait. Look forward to the updates.

Thanks all, yes well chuffed. Want to keep driving it but must remember I'm on a 5k policy!

Redzed, yes it's been a long time in the making! Deals fell through over the years but glad I've got one.

Grimmy, wish I had a garage although hopefully a house move with a drive and garage isn't too far away.

Quick question, will a 120 battery work on the 180? I have a new one in the shed that was ready to go but never got fitted.
