    Upgrading the whole group so it'll fit a standard 58mm basket could get problematic though & that's assuming it's even possible. Especially when there are plenty similar machines around with a full size group.
    IMO a pressure gauge isn't as important as you're making out, which is why I haven't gotten around to fitting on on my Tebe yet. Fitting a PID was simples.
    Can't do much about the 80ml boiler though I've seen preheat coils fitted before to help combat it's size. Would have been much better if they'd stuck with the larger stainless one.

    Investing in a 57mm machine is dumb as you also need a tamper, macaroon, dosing ring besides baskets. And you'll have to give them away practically for free when you upgrade to a 58mm machine.

    A PID is essential on any Classic or any SBDU for that matter.

    Small boiler and 1425W heating power are perfect fit when PID is installed, these are the thermo block roots.

    I don't see the proper OPV, do they use the plastic joke instead?

    Basically a pre 2015 Classic with a new and improved steam wand and a plastic OPV.

    Looks like the MrShades PID may fit. Would need to compare wiring diagrams to be certain though.
