    Default Thank god for workshop space!

    I had my SXi wheels off today and cleaned inside and out with wheel acid, then rinsed them , leathered them off and finally polished them inside and out and put some tyre shine on. Wanted to move front wheels to rear and vice versa so whilst doing that i thought it would be a good idea.

    So i got the motor up on our ramp at work and this gave me the chance to have my first scan of the underside of the car. Was surprised to see a dripping of oil coming from the sump plug, and found that it was finger tight!

    So i tightened it up and checked the oil level which thankfully was OK but i've only had the car just over one month and it was serviced before i got it. Although i'm not that surprised!
