Hi Steve, I read you post with great interest. I have recently bought a 2003 TS Lusso, which I hope is going to give me a few years of trouble free motoring. Although with 86K on the clock, I am expecting a few problems here and there!

Did you receive any advice for keeping your car in tip top shape that you could share?

Hi Mark,The only thing that anyone as said to me is to change the engine oil twice a year and not to wait until a service,This is why I joined the ***** group to find out what I could do to keep the car in tip top shape,lets hope we get some good pointers.
My clutch went a couple of months ago and had a new one fitted at a cost of 440 and then the other day my clutch stayed down again and then it came back up after I pushed down on it a couple of times,so I thought no not again this happened again the following day and I thought this cant be right so I had a look my self and found that the bloody clutch kept catching on the carpet cos it kept riding up,dont laugh but I thought straight away 440, I wonder if it had really gone lol.The mechanic did say he couldnt find much wrong with it but would of eventually have gone.Good look with your *****.Im hoping to lower the springs on mine and do a couple of ajustments with help of son-in-law.
All the best
