GTV written off. :(

Took it for an Italian tune up last night - I'm very lucky to live near some fantastic driving roads. The brakes were useless at first, but are now responding correctly! The engine also seems smoother. The steering is fantastically direct and the car felt well planted on the bumpy B-roads and the handling is very confident inspiring too. Overall I'm a happy bunny. The speakers are dire though, so hopefully I will find time soon to get them upgraded. The stereo is an old but reasonable decent Sony CD, but I will probably end upsetting one of my Alpine HUs in.
Turns out the oil used was 0w30 semi. I sent Millers Oil Technical dept a message through their website yesterday and was very impressed that I got a detailed reply this morning. Their website shows 0w30 as an option, but it doesn't make it clear that this is if the GTV is used in -20 degree C weather! As I won't be spending much time driving around the artic circle I think I'll get it changed to 0w40.
