Interesting train of thought here. I had assumed that synthetic oil alleviated most of the 'cold oil' problems – is this not the case?

I was also looking into an alternator-free engine and thought of power generating shocks/springs supplemented with a small battery, but the cost outweighs the benefit at the moment.

Thanks for the tip Euromodder, I'll look into it. I also want to get rid of the roof bars as I don't use them and they just cause turbulence along my roofline. I've already fitted smaller, aerodynamic door mirrors to easy the airflow.

Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.
