It's from a CiviC Type R EP3. Cheapest seat I could find nearby at £50. It's actually in good condition and with standard seat rails it means getting in and out is a little easier as I can slide back. Well, until it hits the bed! Good use of space like you say. My wife wanted that old doorway to turn into a wardrobe in the spare room for dresses but I got there first ;)
Possesion is 9/10s of the law. Well.... no it isn't actually, but I won't tell. ;)

Breaking out the sequential shifter for this one, may as well get used! Assuming the race version of the RS1600 wasn't a 4/5 speed manual right? If so i'll have to break that out instead ;)

This one is a manual Dave going by the in car view. Only lightly modified :)

Welcome along mark. It's a good question! Apparently this results in a calculated road temp of 27 C which is about 'optimal'. I'm guessing the answer is to do with the clear conditions and sunlight or just because Kunos says so.

I can make the Monday event due to holiday! Is the ambient temp 17c and road 10c? Seems a little on the cool side.

I think the 10 degrees is how much the road surface is warmer than air temp. I think I used to run it at 22 + 5 or something.
