surface rust,but its different to all the bongos that are around here in Cornwall.

hi there
welcome to largoland,,
noisey- slow- thirsdy ?? are you comparing which car?
dont know what did you do since you bought but i can give some advice..
1st start to clean diomond plate( you can find it under passenger seat)
2nd after clean that tube put injector cleaner( some ppl puts some petrol £5 for full tank)
3rd change fuel and air filter (if you dont mind little sporty noise put k&n filter tube one..
after all you can get better accelerate and probably ( if you find a road ) you can do 90mph+ i think it is good with this size old model engine car or get petrol one more faster but thirsty..

forgot to ask when you said noisy is it taking road noise or you mean engine noise..?

The noise is just engine noise being intrusive,but I have ordered some Dynamat to quieten it down,
It is thirsty,mainly because I live in one of the highest villages in Cornwall,so there's a lot of hills around here.I had a Chrysler voyager 2.5 turbo diesel before this,which did about twice the mileage to the gallon.
