Good write up. Wouldn’t disagree with a word of it. Here are a couple of photos you may want to use to evidence the Cabin Zero bags.

Regds,
Gary.

Good write up. I'd add a couple of minor points.
I've got a Pure with the 17" wheels - even with tyres, I believe these are lighter than the 18" fuchs option.

The "small" brakes are still excellent - I've not managed to get the car on track yet, but I struggle to think they'd be inadequate on road. I might revise that after a trip to the Alps I'm planning for September, particularly as we'll be 2up with luggage, but let's see.

Exhaust - I think cars with the WLTP particulate filter are more muted - although I have the sports exhaust, I'm disappointed by mine. It pops a bit on the overrun, but certainly not embarrasing.

Luggage - may also be worth noting that the rear boot gets quite warm, so anything perishable wants to go in the frunk.

Thanks both. I'll produce a revised version when I've had a few more comments. Particularly interested in the standard brakes. It doesn't surprise me that they are absolutely fine on such a light car. Alpine do say that the car is even more playful on the smaller wheels and I'd expect the ride to be a bit better too. There's a lot of big-wheel-itis around!

Guide updated in line with comments and a few minor editorial changes.
