    Recently when pulling away fast, there's a lot of judder. I've bought inserts for the mounts, but I genuinely believe it's clutch related. Has anyone had anything similar? All ideas welcome. Tobie

    Going to look at at 197 tomorrow. It looks clean and tidy and the price is good (it needs belts doing, but I've taken that into consideration). Is there anything specific I should be looking out for, aside from gearbox. Cheers, Tobie
