Hello mate and welcome to UKCOUGAR.COM, I hope you enjoy the Coug as we all do. Sorry to hear that you have back problems. Those are two very nice cars you have had in the past. The Cougar wont be anywhere near as quick as it's more a "sports tourer" but it's quick enough in either the 2ltr or the V6.

Merry Christmas, Tim.

Hi and welcome, two fantastic cars there, my neighbour has a Uk supplied GT4 WRC in red, he always goes on about buying a white one and giving it the Castrol kit but he can't bear to part with the one he's got.

WOW........those lamps on that cozzie look like something you'd go deep sea diving with, awesome looking bits of kit though, both of 'em.

Welcome to UKC White & provided you steer clear of the lowering & low profiles, you shouldn't find the cougar too harsh a ride mate.(y)

welcome to the club. Did you not find that that ar5e end of the cozzie was in the air with all that front end weight?

Think you get the right balance with the cougar.....just don't lower the suspension like most of us have done if you need a bit of softness

Hi and welcome to ukcougar.com, your in the right place for all things cougar related, as well as some crazy banter. You will also be able to find all the fixes you need in our subscriber sections. Have a browse around the open forums and get a feel for the place, maybe pay a visit to the OFS. Remember! ukcougar.com is the only workshop manual for the big cat.
Impressive couple of motors in the piccies, the cats pretty good on standard suspension, Lowered alters the stance no end and i'm sure all the V6'ers will tell you what a good choice youve made (y)

the quick clear screen is an addtional option on top of the "base" x-pack model.

It is a car ripe for modification - Charliecd001 (Mark) has converted one to a 4x4 and is in the process of turbo-ing one...two things which have never been done previously

If you subscribe to the site, you will find a number of group discounts & special money saving offers on group buys (including stainless steel exhausts), that would save you far in excess of the joiner's fee mate.(y)
