Orange is my new black
Bought it ! Thanks for the tip off K7. Star man
Been toying with buying one from CC for a while, and at that price ....daft not to.
I got one off eBay the other day. £10 more and in worse condition. You got the better deal!!
Thanks guys....well pleased
#6 That's interesting, my 2.0 Duratech had a slightly noisier and sharper exhaust note with more pops. Can't say I noticed any difference in power unfortunately.
#6 #7 Doubly interesting TJG and K7 . I do enjoy the popping back with the Cat.......Strange it should disappear
Even though earlier conversations on here advise; Popping back can destroy the Cat ?
Did you find a sympathetic Mot tester , chance the De-cat pipe.
I agree ...De-cat pipe cleans up the look massively.
When it arrives i will take it into work (who said that *whistle*) and give it a good polish first.
We both have the same 310S engine K7, so will be an Interesting experiment. Was yours factory built/ upgraded ?
Sounds like you had a good deal K7.
I only drove / roadtested a 270 briefly , with the owner by my side so couldn't give it the real beans, before opting for a factory built 310. (without lightweight flywheel) . So harder to compare the two back to back
i would imagine that flywheel makes a big difference to how lively it feels , lower down ?
Interestingly i get more "popping back" with the 310 (from what i remember), which i like.
I mainly went for that model after reading loads of reviews including the statement from CC; "If Caterham only made one car it would be the 310".
Plus liking the options / colour choice chosen by the original owner .
