Nice looking motors these mate. Been looking at selling the 200 for one as ill need the 5 doors i think. How are they on fuel if you don't have a heavy right foot?

Why you getting the chain done bud?

200? Whats that?

28mpg when driving normal lowest ive seen is 21 after a thrashing having the chain done because its rattling a little on start up so best to just get it changed cars in 82k with original chain so its just peice of mind. Got a dude thats done a few before doing it £280 all when others have quoted upto £1200 jokers!!

Its an awesome car but you need to read up on them im a mpsowners member so did loads of research been after one ever since my scooby got murderd by one lol.

There very subtle cars. There's a lot of Scottish owners on the mps owners club that stay near me. I've had a play with one of the 6s on there which was a bit of a laugh.

Its alot of car for the money. Hard to find a car with such spec and power all in one package. One remap will see 310bhp so well worth a pop.

they are nice cars the gfs mum has one and she has been told the turbo seals are going as it smokes a bit on extended tickover dont think she is too bothered though aparantly there are ways of preventing it happening though.

Yes there are, one is to not sit there ticking iver for longer than 10minutes, the other is switch to 5w40 oil in the winter, the third option is to buy a banjo bolt from totalmps like i have. They all do it, its because the oil feed to the turbo is to much and will seep through the seals. The banjo bolt prevents that from happeing. Its very common it doesnt always mean your turbo is going. It happens to these and the 3 when they were brand new. You can also buy the moded rocker cover with the better pick up and feed sorted.
