Went & picked my son up from Bristol this evening in the Delta as he'd just got back from a weekend in Manchester. It's the first time he's been in the Delta since he was 3 years old  Shocked.

Thanks Kev  Wink. I've done about a 100 miles since it's been back on the road & I'm still a bit apprehensive when driving it. My son said I was driving like I'd just passed my test! Have you managed to use yours much since you've finished it?

Rob, you need to put a 1000 miles on it for a proper shake down IMHO.

After the big effort it's understandable to be a bit careful Rob, it'll be great to stretch its legs eventually.

My own car is now well and truly settling in.
After the issues tracing the fault, now done with the crank sensor replacement, it's getting a good thrashing now and again  Grin
Went out for a ride this last Wednesday down some local B roads I know well to see what it could do, twisty roads, straight line speed doesn't interest me, the thing grips like nothing I've had before. The power is addictive, loves to have its neck wrung, so I do!
People might be surprised that it gets used like it does and not pampered but I built it to use it, not oluah and look at. Saying that though, it does need a good wash and polish now!  Grin

Hi Kev,

Glad to hear that you're getting some good use out of your integrale & putting it through it's paces. Can't believe that a cat was sick on your bonnet, how rude!  Shocked. I took my Delta out for a spin the other day & I'm starting to feel a bit more relaxed. I was giving the turbo a bit of use, only to free it up after many years on inaction of course  Wink.

Cheers, Rob
