Re: Another lad from Dublin...

Mmm quite dear for one showing clear signs of being crashed and it still has auto CCTS. Saleman narrator spinning quite some bullshit blarney.

Also as it's an import from Japan it will likely be restricted to 100mph or so. So will need certain wires behind the clocks cut to remove limiter.
