Very nice.

Just love M100...so under-rated. Hit 130mph in mine (autobahn), 25 years old and steady as Hendry on the final black 147......and so so good on a wrinkly road, I feel like Senna at Monaco qualifying.

Agree hissing is standard. Ann's car has 150k miles and sill runs like new. i suggest Waxoil underneath as the chassis is not galvanized. Loads of info from LEC.

I’m already on LEC, as well as a couple of M100 FB groups. Lots of information available.

I wish I had some advice from LEC before Ann found she had lost the oil cooler pipes as they had softened over the years and popped off. She was quick enough to stop and save a wrecked engine. One learns with experience though. Only other problem has been the alternator brushes wearing down.
