So picked up the 480 t on Friday evening, then drove upto greenock from Luton through the night..brought back some great memories 👌. Car drove ok but when stuck in traffic temp starts climbing quite quickly and no fan kicking in.also think it might need a gearbox mount to. Car defo didn't look like it does in picks and ebay add..rear lenses are shagged but looked OK in pic cause it was wet. Little bit of rust at top of both rear arches but not bad.engine is strong and pulls like a train.79120 mls on it when picked it up. Happy though :P

How do you mean the gearbox mounts might need doing? mine is on 78500 and I recently felt that the gears might not be as slick as I thought they used to be...

Idk just seems to be a bit of movement on the gearstick when on and off the throttle. It might be something else though I ain't no mechanic :wall:
