220 Insights in the UK! Holy cow.

I thought the ~400 1st gens that found homes in Canada was a small number. (And there's no competition from competitively frugal small diesels to explain the car's scarcity here.)

Aeromods + "making progress" are your friend, Antony! You've discovered the magic of keeping it in the lean burn "window", and aero mods expand that window further up the speedometer.

Glad you're enjoying the car. It's a bit of the hard-core efficiency nut's Ferrari. I'm very glad I had one. I still miss being able to get 100+ mpg (US) all day long at 50 mph in my modified example.

And... nice pics as well.
