Re: Never, ever again!
Fed-up, if I was you reject the car quickly, that engine bay has been butchered, why has the manifold been welded? should it not be a NEW manifold if the car is within warranty?
To be honest if it was my car I would probably be in jail by now, I would have had the dealer by the throat, its just a complete p*sstake. I wouldn't even give the dealer a chance to repair it, if he's prepared to let a car go out in that state as an exchange after the problems you've had before then hes not going to be interested in fixing it.
