    Afternoon all, Just a quick question - does anyone know if a clutch needs bedding in at all? I've just had a new Valeo one fitted and wasn't sure how best to treat it for the next week or so. On a nice note, my heavy clutch pedal is now completely cured since getting the clutch done :thumbup:

    Working from home today, and I glanced up at the TV on in the background only to see a contestant on this programme rocking around in a lovely black 159! Anyone on here by any chance?!

    Its that time again for my 147 GTA to go to bed for the winter. Still mint underneath and that how I want it to stay. No salty roads for my GTA. Anyone else doing the same? Time to buy a 147 jtd as a winter driver. And here she is in all her glory!

    Hi Wizards, I recently bought a 2004 156 2.4 (69000kms) and all was well for 3 weeks. Then after replacing all four tyres, it developed a horrible squeeking, creaking at the right front. It seems pronounced at low speeds and when stationary can be produced by depressing the right fender. I...

    Have just bought some Ferodo Premier pads and about to install them after I get my discs machined as their glazed. Do I need to bed in the Pads? And if so how would I do it? Have seen some articles on how to bed in DS2500 pads but I have Premiers so do they need to be bedded in also? Thanks...

    my 156 that is, seems to be a bad "cold starter", any ideas? when I pull away after starting her up, she will drop revs flat to 1k and very slowly pick up. once the engine is warmed up a bit I can stop/start/engine off/on pull away perfectly fine, but that initial "get in the car and goto...

    I'm curious, how long do you think it take to have dumpers/springs to bed in? And what are the most notorious feelings/improvements we can expect? Like ride quality... Cheers chaps. :)

    Not sure is alignment done last week is right or not. Got new front tyres on Friday. Drove to Scotland Monday evening - scary drive as wet and windy roads - got blown all over. Lovely dry weather today coming back - however, still a fairly wild ride! How long for the new tyre film to wear...
