    I picked up the car friday week ago, and have only put down 550 Km
    so far but that included a trip out to Toodjay on the first weekend
    plus into the hills several times to show the car to the rest of the family.

    Even driving within the rev limits I managed to scare the bejusus out of
    my sister coming down a steep windy road into Darlington and certainly
    impressed my brother in law with its pulling ability uphill.
    The ride is quite firm, but not uncomfortable. Most people who have
    been a passenger have been very impressed with the ride.
    My only grumbles:
    The floor mats are a bit pretty dinky, my gran could have made something
    flasher.
    While sitting in the car at idle there can, at times, be some minor booming
    in the car that can be a little uncomfortable, its not to bad though.

    I just cannot see why anyone would complain about the interior quality,
    but then I have owned a lot of seventies built Euro cars, the RCS looks
    pretty darn good to me.

    Fuel economy is pretty good, the cruise control is nice,
    WA has a lot of very long roads, but the lack of a spare tyre is worring
    so I'm organising a real spare from a mate.
    I could only find one engine oil that met the RCS specs though,
    Shell Helix 5W-40, at least its not that expensive.

    So far so good and I'm enjoying every minute,

    You can get the Elf Excellium that is used in Europe from an importer in NSW if you are interested. Dont have the contact details to hand. One of the guys willl know them.

    Thanks Craig, I seem to remember a thread on Elf oils and a number
    of people getting hold of bulk quantities. I'm happy to use Shell Helix
    as long as it meets the manufacturers specs. I only intend on changing
    the oil between the regular visits to the dealer as I do reckon an oil
    change is a good as a holiday.

    cheers,
