    it is most likely the windscreen. The seal between the glass and the turret rubs and creates strange squeaks and rattles in the cabin, there are a few threads on hear about it. Try to lift the rubber off the painted surface with a plastic scraper (or something that won't scratch you paint) and apply some silicon grease along the whole length of the windscreen, and you may be surprised how quiet it becomes in your cabin.

    Join one of the facebook groups and see who lives near by with a motorsport, catch up with them and compare both vehciles for anything that might be different. Its the best way to make new friends who also own a motorsport and for you to sort out your noise issues

    I've had the same issues with my MSE since purchase, spray silicon behind the rubber at the top of the windscreen where it joins the roof and on all door rubbers, this has solved the problem for me. In 14 months I've had to do the windscreen twice and I redo the door rubbers every 2 or 3 months.

    Thanks mate, dealer is going to take a look at this and I will ask what product they use but wanted to know which product you have chosen to use on your MSE?

    I use WD-40 High Performance Silicone Lubricant, about $10 from Bunnings... or $17 at REPCO.

    This.

    Almost 2000Km on mine (had it for three weeks) and I’m absolutely loving it.

    My first V8. My first drive of any V8 was when it was delivered to me at the dealers and I got to take it home.

    I’m hooked and won’t be able to drive anything else now... this thing is a beast when you want it to be and civilised at the twist of a wrist. I was quite careful for the first thousand KM or so, but it is now beginning to feel like it is freeing up. And that thunderous bellow from about 90Km/h in third gear, makes the angels weep... it’s a symphony... if it proves to be reliable, I will keep it forever.

    The financial hazards of this addiction worry me - I’m actually beginning to seriously wonder what the LSA engined cars are like... can they be so noticeably faster/more desirable? It’s never enough!!!

    Having come from an LS3 Calais V into an LSA, I can say with experience that the rush of FI is on another level again. Don't get me wrong, the LS3 is a wonderful bit of kit, and I'd go as far to say it probably even sounds a bit better up to around 3000rpm, but put your foot down in an LSA car and the instant, linear freight train power is awesome, particularly the pull from ~80-120.

    Geez! You’re killing me!

    I’ll be dreaming of LSA freight trains all night now...

    The MSE is a weapon. Supercharging is expensive but consider that for $5k you can get more out of the LS3 and keep it NA, sounds much better too. I've said it many times before but a 375/385 pack from various tuners with a DPE exhaust really takes the MSE to another level. In addition, try and get to a track day if you can, you'll never fully appreciate what the MSE can do on the road.

    Factor in rego costs including stamp duty and this pearler lingering within the add before considering it a great deal.

    Please be advised that when purchasing a vehicle from auction you do not receive a Statutory Warranty or Cooling-Off Period

    (SN:6G1FE5EW4HL320028) (254607-600)

    Note the add does say “warranty available” so presumably it’ll cost you some more after bid price+.

    Yes, around $700 more for 12 months insurance style warranty :oops:

    And don't forget about the buyer's premium which, based on the rate of 7% and the current bid of $63,009, is the better part of $4.5k.

    That’s just a line put in any auction ad. Manufacturers warranty will commence at the date of first rego.

    Although, you’ve got to wonder how that applies for these cars that will be stored unregistered for years. Would that warranty still kick in years and years later if a subsequent buyer of such a car decided to rego it for the first time?

    I get the feeling to cover their ass they would apply the warranty from the date of sale recorded by the dealer because rego or not they still record the sale on the vin with gm.
