    I don't think my spoiler contacts the rear quarters, but I can't say I've paid that much attention, so it may do.

    The alloys do have corrosion, and the build quality isn't of a BMW standard, but I don't pay BMW prices so I wouldn't expect it.

    And I'm not sure I can personally say the engine is the best bit It's good, but by-fuck does it drink some fuel.

    I used to drive a RO 80 in the seventies both the early 4 plug type and the later 2 plug engines. The key on those engines was to use low ash fuel today that would mean the better grade of unleaded petrol to reduce carbon plug fouling. As for oil I would use low ash oil - fully synthetic such as MB229.51. The low ash oils are used by Mercedes to reduce carbon deposit build ups just what you need to prevent plug fouling with a rotary engine.
    Although the RO 80 got a lot of bad press most of it's issues were a combination of over revving the engine and it's unsuitability for short journey work.
