Project Drive changes

Project Drive changes were implemented over a period of years and not in any obvious order as parts would only change or be deleted when stock of the original parts ran out. In 2001/2002 particularly, cars coming off the production line close to each other could be specced different in terms of Project Drive changes just because parts had run out!

Later in the production cycle (2004) the quality of leather used for seats was degraded along with other bits.

Project Drive began almost immediately production moved to Longbridge.
