Hmm, my 1.0 is good though which my mum now has, deep dish 15 inch 5 spoke Lenso alloys, headlight brows, and a wee supercharger :P not completely standard mind you.

 

My original Matiz set it's breaks on fire after more than 2 miles >_> I genuinely had to carry fire extinguishers.

That does sound fun! Minus the fires... How did the cooling system cope with boost? My old fez cooked it's water stock!

It barely coped with the standard power in fairness lol, it was stripped the car as a project, cleaned out, everything that needed replaced; then as for the cooling it needed a bigger water pump, needed a bigger radiator, then went with all the tubing bits for the blower, then a custom made manifold and exhaust that's as quiet as a whistle until you really give it some, and even then it's no louder than a sporty hatch as standard. It's not stupidly fast, but it's good fun. It'll hit 60 almost as quick as my ST but won't go on past 100 too far, maybe 105 :P Great cruiser though, which isn't usual for a Matiz to say the least. Had to upgrade the brakes too and the suspension as it was pretty poor. 

 

Looks totally standard which is what I was going for, unless you look really close at the brakes or the cooler. Just looks as if someone slapped some new wheels on it :P

That sounds awesome for a track day beater! Just need some baby on board signs for ultimate stealthiness! ;)
