Article about improving the coupe with "cost friendly upgrades". To ensure journalistic balance I assume it will be followed by those deemed "unfriendly "?

Was just about to post here about it, I contributed to the article and discussed the cars with Richard who wrote it. Seems ironic to be called the expert with the signature line I used to use in this forum - an expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less laugh click to enlarge

I liked the idea of changing to a 6 speed gear box

my last car was a 6 speed and my van is a 6 speed and I
keep going to put my newly acquired coupe into sixth gear lol

If you have aircon the 6 speed box isn't a straight swap into a 5 speed coupe like it says, the dryer filter needs moved as the 6 speed box is slightly bigger and will eventually rub a hole in the dryer causing the aircon to leak.

It's not a major issue the dryer only needs moved slightly, but just something to be aware of to prevent a future problem.
