    Just ticked over 87000km on mine (2016). It's been great.

    Full list of issues:
    - drivers window button got a bit sticky when it was a few months old (fixed on warranty)
    - the clutch pedal would occasionally not return all the way (fairly common/trivial issue with the spring), again when pretty new. Entire pedal box and master cylinder replaced under warranty.
    - correct head gasket fitted from new, but had the recall done it tested all good. HG replaced as a precaution as part of the recall.
    - the fuel filler thing sometimes popped out so they replaced it under warranty

    That's it. Basically small/trim items that popped up when it was pretty new (mine was an early production model) and have been fixed. I've never had any issues getting things covered under warranty - to the contrary, the local service bloke has been actually really good in finding ways of pushing a couple of these things through (for example the fuel filler thing was actually done a few weeks out of warranty but he got it done).

      So what's the deal with Mountune stuff these days. Everything seems to be sold out & the company is being restructured? Does anyone know?

        Mountune UK is the best of the 2.
        Stuff comes back into stock fairly often, but the demand is high, so it sells again straight away.
        I've heard of the re structure also, not too sure on the details, may have something to do with the US market no longer supporting the small car market and focusing on the SUV and truck side of things?
        I have a few Mountune parts on mine, and will be adding more they are quality parts!

          Thanks for the reply. I didn't know if they were still in business. MRT don't seem to list all of their bits like they used to.

            Best off buying them direct from Mountune UK in my experience
            MRT are cunts anyway!

                Prices have gone crackers. I was going to sell mine for $35k not long before COVID but held on to it, cheapest one on carsales is now $43k.

                  There are not even any of the previous model LV available to buy. I wonder if they’ve skyrocketed also.

                    The LVs on Carsales are $43-60k

                      I think it's a bit like [Sydney] house prices.
                      Everything has gone up and if you intend to replace it, what you feel like you've "gained" on resale pre & post covid will only be used on another vehicle that has experienced the same thing including new car prices too.

                        Plus there is no new RS to replace it with and possibly never will be

                              Have seen people asking in the $50's

                                I'm asking mid 50s for mine but it does have $6k worth of brakes alone on it amongst other things. Low kms too and the hero colour. Zero bites although I know I'm catering to a different market compared to someone who wants a stock one. Maybe i'm better off returning it to mostly stock. Sell the brakes, carbon spoiler, race seat and potentially all the stock parts separately
