  3. My car feels faster after a service

    I know this is real BS but I thought some may have a laugh at my expense but since I got my car back from Giorgio it has felt quicker, which cant be true as all that was done was an oil change and new front discs. Went on an early morning breakfast run with a few friends yesterday, lots of...

    my gtv was running cool all the time - and I was told that this meant I was probably going through a good bit more fuel than I needed. Was advised to change the thermostat.
