Annoying things dealers do ? How about removing a reg plate and replacing it with their own branded one and just !Removed! it into the metalwork? That's annoying when you have a short plate. And also when they turn your interior into silicone valley!




134Bhp engine
Heated leather seats
Twin exhausts
Different front splitter


Different downpipes and a different gearbox too, which IMO makes the biggest difference. And the gear change indicator comes in at the redline. is it a different airbox as well ?

Worth pointing out that its only the 2011 s1600 / metal that have the performance changes. The 2010 one was just cosmetic changes.

I have driven the 2010 and the 2011 in the same day and there's enough difference between them to warrant going from a zs to a metal ( same scenario, different shape)

Have something to contribute?

Ah I didn't realise there was a different gearbox? Yeah I forgot about the shift indicator light as well. The extra 14 horse power really does make the difference. I test drove the both and it was a no brainer
