                    Thanks for the update John, the one you have purchased being an S and Condor Green is just the Ducks N**ts. Hope you still have your 930.

                        Cool car.
                        Well come on you 2.2s car drivers, what are these like to drive when driven hard?
                        Are they as good as some say, i.e. better than the 2.4's.

                          I've driven both - and I have to say I prefer the 2.4's .... just a little more torque, while still being electrifying to drive.

                          2.2S's are sublime beyond 5000 rpm, but not so sublime below it...

                          Just my 2c worth.

                          Would I say yes to either or both, given the chance..... in a heart beat.

                            I can't say just yet the engine needs to be run in first!

                              Congrats on the new toy John. I'm sure you will love it. I had my 71S out for a long drive through Royal National Park early Wed morning . . . even the aggressive packs of cyclists gave me a thumbs up.

                              I'd be fascinated to know how many of the 12 Aussie-delivered 71S cars are still around. I reckon I've come across 9 out of 12 over the past 6-7 years, though my notes might not be 100% accurate:

                              0029, my car, Bahia Red
                              0056, Irish Green, has been off the road for years and was being restored
                              0210, Light Ivory Green, Hugh helped find the matching engine, up in Newcastle now
                              0233, Light Red, I almost bought it back in 2013, restored by Auto Coupe, was Signal Orange for a few years
                              0380, Conda Green, used to belong to Toby G (maybe your new car?)
                              0391, should be Tangerine, the mystery chassis number swap with a Light Ivory 2.2E body
                              0524, Light Ivory, used to belong to Jason G
                              0766, Tangerine Orange, belonged to Garvs
                              1379, Light Ivory
