Just bought an 02 SillySpeed (privately), got it home and there did not appear to be much oil in it, yep I know, should have know better, but done now.
Anyway, my drive home was 30 miles on the M6, I estimate the oil to be 1 to 1.5 litres short, based on getting just less than 3l out of it and 4l in it to get to full on the dipstick (filter changed later but thought this was top priority).
What is the collective wisdom on potential damage? It certainly seems sweet enough with no knocking at low or high revs
so, to business, do you think I may have been lucky and got away with it completely, or that the damage will show up in several thousand miles time, or that you actually have to be a complete ar5e and drive the car for ages with no oil in before it gives up, then blame the car/blame the dealer etc etc
Other than that, seems a cracking little car, almost as nice as my 166 to drive, some achievement for a small car.
