  2. Headlight bulb retaining clips

    Does anyone know if these are readily available for the 453? Iíve seen some for sale for the 451, which I know is a completely different lamp unit. But the picture of the clips looks very similar to those on the 453. Does anyone know if they are compatible? Thanks.

  4. Windscreen water drainage

    After washing the car and noticing that my front strut mounting points were wet, it made me observe the drainage route; it's seriously lacking in any planned drainage channels. The water is merely directed to pi$$ down the side of the internal bulkhead, until it hits the ground, with no drainage...

  8. Tyre pressure sensors?

    Anyone having issues with this on their 453? Yesterday was the coldest morning yet this winter here. Not that cold, but mild frost. Jumped in the car in the morning and set off, not 40 feet down the road and it bleeped a warning about tyre pressures. They all looked ok, so carried on, just...

  11. Whatís your MPG?

    Curious what sort of mpg people are getting from their 453ís? I know NEDC mpg numbers are pretty bogus and ultimately pointless. But would be good to know if anyone is even getting close. My 453 has way better ďclaimedĒ mpg than my previous Roadster. But reality seems itís a fair chunk more...
