Well i'd have let everyone know sooner but I have been blasting about in the car the entire time I have had it back
Had the car down with Ned at Auto Lusso for a replacement engine for the last few weeks after the original blew itself to bits.
So its had;
New engine, serviced with belts/tensioners/water pump/plugs etc
New clutch while everything was off.
Radiator was leaking so that was also replaced.
A little welding around the towing eye area.
So I can safely say i am very happy with the service they provided which is contrary to recent reports.
Also came back with a spotless engine bay and some nice spangly new number plates.
As for how it runs - its better than before. Very smooth and pulls well. Still to nervous to give it the full beans though. The old engine had done 90k. The donor vehicle was on about 55k and had had the engine replaced itself - so i should have a nice low mileage one now.
One or two last little niggles and it will be in pretty spotless condition.
Also sorry it was dark when i took the pictures
Good to have it back though
