Re: Road rash

The majority of chips are on the plastic panels not metal.Many AC Cobra's had alumimium/chrome steel guards fixed to the rear mudguards at the bottom to stop paint chipping. Maybe someone could custom make similar for the XE?

Re: Help & advice please

Don't waste your money on filters such as K&N etc All you will do is waste your money for no gain in power that is the slightest bit noticable.

Re: no interior heating - or cooling
