    Very nice is that chief. The only I don't like is that silly splitter, but at least it'll come in handy when the snow comes.

    I remember the tv ads for these when first released, think they did Santa Pod in the ad, or something similar.

    Braided hose should improve pedal feel even more. You might wanna invest in some 4 point harnesses lmao.

    to be honest mate it was like that when i got it. havent done anything to the outside. thats why i got it cos it looked so nice. and the fact it has so much paper work i can fill my front room and dinning room floor with it.
