    Unhappy Havent Been Around Much

    Well it just seems one thing after another with the car..

    as you all know i had the manifold problem which you have seen pictures of the shocking repair jobs they done... Well the light finally came on and went to the garage who said we will get in touch with the warrenty company... 3 hours later i get a phone call from the warrenty company saying "Mr Armstrong unfortunately you manifold is not covered under warrenty as yopu dont have the modified manifold on so its a manufacturing design fault not a sudden failure" WTF!!!!!!... so after hurling loads of abuse down the phone i hung up.. and got in touch with my mate who is a VX Tech and he sorted me out with a new manifold and fitted it for me..

    Then Monday Oil Light comes on (i only serviced it two weeks ago).. the car has never lost oil and i check it every weekend... so i pulled into a petrol garage and had to drive up a kerb so i could see under the car because its to ****** low lol and saw oil covering the whole underneath.. so next day i get it into my mates garage on the ramps and see there is too much oiol to tell where its coming from so took it home jacked it up and cleaned the whole engine bay... left the car running for 2 hours and not a single drop of oil...... so left it at that... however yesterday i checked underneath the car an noticed oil drops on the floor so had a look and saw oil again.. but its coming from the very top right hand side of the engine (where the beveled bit joins the top of the engine and also the bottom left hand side where the pulleys are... and a couple of other places...

    SO the cars going into my mates garage next week for the engine to be stripped down and all resealed and bits and bobs replaced

    This has possibly got to be the worst car ive ever had however when its working properly i love it.. especially with 209bhp ....


    Sorry for the rant
