Tom, your experience mirrors (please excuse the pun) that which Toby had 
when he had his first set of TABs made. It took him months to sell them 
all, but word did eventually spread and they've become a sought after 
item for the DeLorean

Hi Kevin

Here's a possible start to a new thread. I know what you mean, but 
taking things tongue in cheek, I think the DeLorean is full of 
"features" which are quirks unique to the car that serve absolutely no 
purpose whatsoever but cannot be considered design flaws. I don't think 
of the interior light delay as a quirk because it does not work as it 
should. However, I'd like to kick off with a couple of suggestions - can 
anyone think of any more? To be on this list, it must be something that 
in no way harms your enjoyment of the car, was not designed to be there, 
and cannot be considered a design flaw (eg lock module, tank sender, 
warping fascias etc)

1) The rev counter that leaps to a random reading when the ignition is 
turned off, and stays there.
2) When taking your foot off the accellerator pedal quickly, you're 
greeted with a very unique "twanggggg" noise.
3) Engine "hunts" when cold

Just a few ideas!
