Would you mind sharing Andy Blake's details please? Mine is due a belt change and taking it to Londone, where I bought it from, is a long day out, thanks.Took my 2000 GTV TS over to my local indie (Andy Blake - Northampton, friendly, knows what he doing, reasonable rates, honest) to get her up on his lift to inspect underneath. I’ve had it since last August, Vela blue, 41,000 miles. Spotless bodywork (almost), aftermarket exhaust sounds fantastic.
Anyway, had a good close look underneath and with big sighs of relief he says it’s in fantastic nick, hardly any corrosion. He showed me where the 916 usually goes, but just some very minor spots on mine. The only thing he picked up on was one bush on one dog-leg that had started going and getting close to rear sub-frame, and both spring-pans will need sorting in future, but doesn’t need doing straight away.
Do I go Powerflex for the dog-legs or OEM. Decisions, decisions.
Very pleased of Kettering😀
