    Forgive my ignorance... how can you add the cup after. I thought it was the chassis?

    The chassis is not different in any way between normal (or lux) and cup. The only differences are the Cup shocks and the Cup springs. Nothing else.

    I assume some came from the factory if ordered with the cup pack but it's simple to add after as well.

    L1011- RE08MFP- Lux 3dr (Cup added afterwards including mirrors)- Ultra Blue- Glasgow- no #30

    Was the reading demo car so had pano roof and Auditorium sound etc.

    I think this explains the late register/low build number.

    Standard 175 is a Sport. So same approach as a standard 225.

    Different springs and dampers obviously to match the weight of the M9R lump.

    It also had the R26 rear beam and rear brakes/ bearing as standard which are an upgrade over the standard 225. Again to account for the extra mass.

    Unique anti roll bar diameter front and back (although brackets and pick up points are the same so you can pop in many different bars as long as you fit the right bush).

    Then you could spec a cup pack which came with a 175 specific damper and spring. Said to ride better and handle a lot better than the standard sport which is why most have been upgraded.

    Don't think either had an LSD

    Thought I'd share my fuel figures with you over the last 20k miles.

    [​IMG]

    I did a long run the other day and basically used a tank. Car was fully loaded with wife and baby and the weather was mixed rain and sun but mostly spent on the M6 in the fast lane. Managed to get 48 mpg:

    That shows that whilst my daily commute on the M77 gives me 42ish I'm loosing out due to the B road blasting I'm doing getting to it.
