Picked up my silver 225 last Thursday from Oakleigh Euro. Gave it a great trial driving up to Bendigo on Friday. Five passengers, lots of luggage and the A/C on all the way. Set the cruise on 114, and she just purred all the way. Was so pleased when it pulled up all the hills with the cruise on in 6th without seeming to struggle. The return trip was more exciting as an extreme storm ripped through the Bendigo - Malden area, dumping inches of rain and very high winds, i was dodging falling branches feeling very secure on the road, till I had to stop when the highway was completely blocked by a large gum tree.
I am burying myself in all the related web links I can find, and will be doing stereo upgrade as soon as possible. Also looking at the popular remapping options and blow-off valves.
What is the general consensus on the standard air intake. Is it typically swapped for a K&N pod or some sort of improved cold air intake system?
I haven't had this much fun since I sold my Cosworth Sierra.
