Your friend said the ride and handling deteriorated, which I think means it got worse. ;)

Thank you for clarifying Paul, I did not feel the need to quote the relevant section, but in hindsight maybe I should have.

Well I have tried the Panhard rod in normal road conditions and it does feel a bit stiffer and better located. In the next couple of months I will take it on a track to try it a bit harder. The car seems to roll a bit less too.
At the moment I am checking the car over with an eye on the Italy trip, trying to cure irritating minor rattles and squeaks, improving storage options in the car etc etc.

Don't mention door pockets on a Hawk-based site, they won't know what you're talking about
