Hi Lee thanks for the info on the k&n panel filter I may try one on my wife's streetka if it does make a difference to power and mpg.  Can I check what do you mean by scuttle rattle and can you get a strut brace to fit a streetka as may look I to this?  Thanks

Yes you can buy strutbraces for the atreetka...ebay have a few ...scuttle shake is the feeling you get when the roof is down,. Over bumpy roads( most roads lol) the car flexs and twists and is noticeable by the windscreen and rear view mirror moving side to side...all cabrios do it some worse than others

Ah thanks I wondered what the slight vibration was occasionally the other week when I was driving with the top down.  Thanks will look into one of those.

Hi Lee have you looked into replacement headlights at all?  That's the one thing I think spoils the look on a streetka.  I would love some all clear ones but can't find any.

Yours looks great btw, did it cost too much to have the wheels refinished?  I love the black look but it may look a bit much on an all black streetka.

Yes they look great Lee and a good price too, there are a fair few scuffs on the edges of our alloys too but going to leave them for now until next year i think as getting the winter hardtop I bought for it sprayed black plus a few other bits of the bodywork done first in a few months ready for the winter.  A local trusted garage is doing it for me and are also going to remove the inner arches and underseal all of the underside for me with shultz at the same time to try and help keep it nice for a good few more years yet.

Got to be careful though as I don't want it to be a money pit 😂
