Aye you cant beat a car that fixes itself :D . Honda's are like that, course, they hardly ever go wrong to need self fixing :P .

What's the difference between a Honda and an Egg?..... You can beat an Egg but you cant beat a Honda ..... however you can a have a Honda Beat , ( a tiny wee convertible very similar era as the M100, '91 to '96, 650 cc :-) .

Not quite sure that McLaren would agree
I really hope they get it sorted need to have them back and challenging

Hi All
Im new to this site and my gorgeous Red M100, 1991 but me too have battery drain issues, I have to disconnect the battery lead when not working on it and its fine when I reconnect. Ive just charged mine back up and just ran the car on ticker for about 25 mins and notice the battery voltage on dash going down, I have lost 1 volt whilst on tick over. any help or ideas welcome.
