ahhhh roundabouts...I've spent some time in Ireland and Scotland and those damn roundabouts drove me nuts.

You will feel a big difference with those mods, I think you'll be happy.

Unless the lowered look is really important do the Z bar conversion with our bushes. It will hands down out handle our lowering coils and old style sway are or those of any companies inboard bars and coils.

I lived in the UK for 4 1/2 years and loved it! Roundabouts are awesome, just a couple things to remember........ Operating a left hand drive car takes a bit of getting used to because you cant see around traffic when overtaking, be careful who you take your car to for the light conversion (look and see who's recommended by other folks at the base for quality of work and pricing), and you might piss and moan about your alignment. Also use the auto-hobby as much as possible, it can be a life saver.

Find your favorite "B" roads, favorite pubs and enjoy!!!

I had a new (back then) 2001 Mustang GT and when I went back took a new 2003 Mustang Mach 1 with me. Fun to have there that's for sure.

Mildenhall, lakenheath? Just hit the ride up to Scotland. Hardly any cops and open roads. Or take a ride to Germany to the autobahn.

I'm really careful on roundabouts too.
I experience the same issues you fear.

Sways are almost next up for me.
Don't lower yet! Roads can be crap up North.

I'm in Yorkshire. :-)

Ah Yorkshire! I lived in Harrogate while working at Menwith Hill. Loved the north and the motorcycle riding was awesome from there!!! I miss riding and driving thru the Dales pub hopping.

Previous I was at RAF Feltwell, flat lands and boring down there compared to the north......

That's funny, roundabouts are one of the things that I really miss since I moved from the UK to Texas 10 years ago. There are no roundabouts in Texas, only traffic lights or stop signs at every f***ing intersection. My wife is used to hearing me complain when I am sitting at yet another red light "Why don't they put a roundabout here so I don't have to stop!".
Also, when we are in the UK visiting my parents, when I see a roundabout approaching I shout out "roundabout", and the wife and kids know to hang on tight as I attempt to go round it without slowing down (in a rental car). Great fun!
