Hi Guys and Girls,

I just got a new job which involves a 40 mile commute every day. This coincided with my old car (Laguna ) dying so I thought I would splash out on a diesel for fuel economy. Then I remembered that I'm 28 with no kids or mortgage so I said b*ll*cks to economy and spent the cash on a 1998 2 litre156 TS which I am well impressed with, apart from a cold start=no acceleration problem and my old insurance company giving me a good shafting when I changed it over.

Unfortunately I have no mechanical expertise whatsoever (managed to blow a head gasket on one of my old cars due to not fixing the radiator hose back on correctly) so I guess I'll mainly be looking for advice rather than giving it. Still, if anyone wants help with their sums (I am just finishing a PhD in maths) then I can probably help you out.
