Cheers from Finland. I bought my Speedster a week ago and now decided to introduce myself to thee community. So the car is an 2001 2.2 Speedster (n.0794) in Europa Blue, one of the few imported to Finland new. Car has only about 25 000 km on it. The car has some modifications by previous owner including Tullet exhaust, including precat pipe, cold air intake, Turbo Ears, rear spoiler and a gated shifter cover (Not sure if this has been a original add on). One of the most interesting features of the car is that it has fabric seats, which I haven't seen in any other speedster on sale. wheels on the car are ATC DTCs in silver that I really like.
I have now driven 60km with the car and I totally love it. But winter is coming fast in Finland, so I have had only a few dry days to drive it and we only have a few hours of day light. This means I now have to probably wait until may or so... After a week of owning, a couple of questions have emerged. Firstly Is it normal or common to have kinda lot of leakage to the front light buckets? Is there an easy fix to it? Secondly what are normal temperatures in a vx/speedster? Mine stays at a steady 89-91C while moving but if I am longer still the heat starts to rise to over 100C. And lastly what kind of modifications do you recommend on doing first?
An so to the not so interesting topic, myself . So I am a 21 year old petrol head from Southern Finland, my daily is a 2005 Astra G Coupe with 2.2 ecotec as well, that I have now had for 2 years. I also own a part of a BMW e36 endurance race car, that I use with my team to compete in 6h Endurance racing cup in Finland.
