Yes you are. So what??
Life is to short. Buy what you want if you can afford it.
But! Do not go into debt for a "want".
We all are suffering from our past of just such actions.
Rant off.
Enjoy...

Save yourself the time and doubt about wondering if you did the right thing and buy an 1800.
They are a world away from the others.
Oh, and by the way. They are not all that great for tall people.

I was going to scream "fuel filter" but you covered that so you might want to test that fuel pump with a pressure gauge.

Yup, I have.
Found out that is was caused by the road which is uneven. Higher speeds mask this somewhat and make it feel like a vibration.
