A couple of questions
I have just got my new N/A XR6 manual in venom red with 18" wheels and it's great, but I've not had much chance to drive it yet as my Hubby took it to work today and yesterday. I am new to the forum and hope someone can answer a couple of questions I have
1. I do not like the way the gear knob feels in my hand the metal seems to cut in when changing gear. The only alternative seems to be a Momo metal round knob but I think that may get very hot in summer. I would really like a leather one, any suggestions of a good quality after market one with the right shift pattern?
2. My husband has a golf Gti and modified the drivers door handle to remove the key lock. I would like to do the same and wondered if this is possible. Would the rear door handle surround fit around the front door handle, to remove the door lock? Has anyone done this mod?
3. My hubby also painted his brake calipers red ( Folia-Tec) and they look great, has anyone done this mod to their XR or would it be frowned upon?
While I think the build quality is very good my hubby says " it's no VW!" I'm sure in time he too will fall in love with my new big red beastie.
P.S. my previous car was a Renault Clio Sport ( small flying machine)!!
