Re: I have drifted to a Diesel ;-)
ok you learn sumthing new every day, kit by zender hey !
I feel a sportwagon break away club forming here.... lol
Andy, welcome fellow local sportwagon owner (returned yr PM BTW), I too used to go to S&H, until the missud Spider went in for its BIG service inc new rad, only for the rad to empty inself on the spur road one morning and blow the head gasket !! strange, this was 48 hrs later. They did the head gasket, then it was using 5 lts of oil a week, yes 5LTS.... They said the engine needed a rebuild, altho it wasn't smoking or losing oil.....we quickly chopped it in for a pug 206 GTI....so don't buy a green spider from a local dealer !!
I am now looking for another specialist, as S&H also stitched me up with a over heating prob on my V6 156, they didn't know what it was, so changed random parts and charged me for them !! turned out to be waterpump...
I might take mine back to Monza Sport (2 hr drive) or find somewhere in Southampton (nr to work).
8MU.... nooooo not more cars to modify...... already spend far too much on old Escorts !!
So what does everyone think of Lexus rear light on a SW ??
