Did you notice a power increase? Also you can get a Miltek down pipe, did you get the complete system?

Cheers
Can't really say I noticed a power increase ... in fact initially there seemed to be a power decrease!  However after 'running in' the system it is back to as is was before with possibly a touch more grunt.  Yes, I installed the full system including cat.

Drove my new RS2 out to Piha today, what a machine!

You really donít get a feel for the car around the city, my R32 is much better, but the story is a very different one on the country roads, the RS2 covers the ground so quickly, the RS2 maybe over 12 years old but its still a formidable machine.

They handle so well don't they.
You soon forget that they weigh in at 1600kg's! The brakes are fantastic.
It's like the Ur, they are a bit sluggish round town, but let them loose on the highway and man do you get a smile.
I'm glad you bought one, this seems to be the right car with the right owner, who will have many years of fun together.

Nice Simon, are you going to fit a euro plate, P/plate at all?

Also, does it have leather?

Yes it has the full leather & itís very slippy! I may change the lumber to suede, or do you have any suggestions?

The Euro plate is on its way!

Also Nick it has a detachable tow bar but a small cut has been made to fit it, can you get a detachable tow bar that actually fits rather than having to cut away the rear bumper?

Cheers

I've read that there is an OEM removable tow-bar for S2, which I guess fits RS2 (unless the RS2 bumper is deeper). Apparently it is still available, but is big $$$.

Re: the leather, it must be the same crap thats in my VR6 (well its the same era), honesty I think its border line dangerous, well my seats arent as deep as yours.

Alcantara was an option in RS2s (Dads old one had grey). Its better wearing than Suede.

Leathers fine. RS2 seats are deep enough to stop flying out of them.

Awesome car Simon - getting one in black is a great score too IMO.

This is a bit left field - but would I be out of line in suggesting that if cars are generally considered female gender then having "DYK" on the plate is quite suitable for a more "butch" vehicle like the RS2  ;) :D

I actually have an original detachable towbar for RS2 in my garage somewhere. Bought RS4 now so might not need it. It is U shape and goes under bumper. No cutting.
