My new 156
So, I'm on call this weekend so time is scarce. I needed to get new rubber on and get back in time to field the first wave of service calls at about 11am. This was done along with a quick wash with about 10minutes to spare
The first service call was in Navan so I thought, happy days, quick call then back home to enjoy the sun. I know, I'll take the 156. I threw my tools and a few bits in the back on headed off.
From Navan I had to go to Delvin across the N51 where I was behind an MPV of some description, it slowed to a crawl so I dropped a cog and booted it. This is where it went wrong, it would appear the car slowed for an uneven road surface and by the time I realised what was going on the (lowered) suspension bottomed out heavily twice in quick succession. It probably didn't help that I had all my tools in the back awell
The problem I now have is that the steering feels a bit vague but the main thing is it now gets a shimmy under acceleration between 50/60 and 80/100 ish, ease off the throttle and it fine, power down and the shimmy comes back.
I wonder have I bent something, buckled an alloy or two, or just thrown a weight from a wheel? I had no time today but I'm going to swap the wheels front to back to see if it makes a difference, that and while its jacked up see if anything looks a bit wayward.
I don't believe this, I'm absolutely loving my new car and I have ruined what I liked most of all, the handling
really hoping this is a hiccup as opposed to acid reflux
Anyway, a couple of pics I made this morning before I broke it
