Dan is right, the Beissbarth equipment is the best but very time consuming to use, takes about an hour just to set the car up on the machine, I have been thinking about buying a Hunter or Hoffman alignment machine as well

Dealing with Beissbarth as a company can also be quite painful for parts and service etc

Member car:


make sure the cambelt and water pump has been changed needs doing at 36K and 72K then 100K

also look for regular oil and filter changes oh and a biggy if the turbo sounds like a police siren as you rev it the main bearing is on its way out so walk way.

also if the Duel mass flywheel rattles when the engine ticks over its knackered so if you hear that from the front lower part of the engine bay walk away unless of course you want to repair these items and use them to knock the price down.

Collected yesterday!! Cambelt, idlers, water pump done.... Ex company car from Lex so services done very regularly!! Drives brilliantly and has just had the full valet treatment. It's an ex-smokers car so was a bit stinky.
Just need to know how to get my iPhone connected up for music and calls. I have the rare factory satvav system so it ain't gonna be straightforward. 😞
