Hey there 

I'm a new 86 owner having upgraded from a little 1.4 hatchback to this. Its a big jump but the car gives you so much confidence in the corners and feels pretty nippy.

the induction noise is something else and I'm looking to upgrade the induction and exhaust at some point in the future. 

shes a red 12 plate model so one of the first ones but suffice to say after 5 days of ownership I'm in love and can't wait to take her out on her first proper track day 

cheers 

Chris 

P.S. shes got a little bit of condensation in one of the rear light clusters which I've read is a fairly common problem with these cars is there a fix for this or is it just a "quirk" of these cars?

Welcome to the club Chris
The condensation in the tail lights is easily fixed,the rubber gasket needs replacing but don't over-tighten as that is what causes the problem. Use the search function on here for more info & where to order gaskets from.
