GT 2 month review..
So had the GT a couple of months now, in which time it's had a full service/cam done.
Oil consumption - seems pretty hungry for oil, but not outside the parameters of 'normal' i've seen on here. Was just above max on the dipstick on 23rd Feb after service - checked every week or so but as of today it's half way down. During that time I've probably done 1500 miles. Sound Ok?
Coolant consumption - this is a bit more alarming. Was again just above max after service, bearing in mind the several long runs though it's surprising that as of this morning it was an inch or so BELOW min. I noticed early on that it had dropped below max and seemed to plateu so I wasn't too concerned as there's clearly coolant in the system. No visible leaks.
Groan from front suspension - since the weather's warmed up this has all but gone, so I'm less concerned than I was.
Engine noise 1 - on the wind down from revving there is a chortling/rattling. I'm not a mechanic but sounds like the flap on a Carb? Any ideas on this one, and whether it's an issue? It's not persistent, not loud, but is noticeable as the engine winds down.
Engine noise 2 - only happened once, but a whirring noise in 4th when at too low revs. Power was fine, but noticeable noise from engine. Clutch?
Parcel Shelf - still irritating! ;-)
Otherwise a joy to drive, going to give it some TLC this weekend - so any recommendations on a good polish for the blackline paint would be appreciated too.
Chip in on any point you fancy!
