    This video shows how our Series V Alpine with overdrive performs with the gearing raised by fitting a 3.89 differential in place of the 4.22 to make it a more long-legged tourer.

    Together with some other minor changes the end result delivers a very smooth, quiet and much more economical car. This is a modification that is highly recommended as the only down side is a slight reduction in 0-60 time which in real world driving you will not notice.
