    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Design


    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 56000

    Default A bit of a mystery

    I left my car on rear axle stands overnight last Saturday, to allow my calipers to dry..
    Something has leaked from the car onto the drive and made a stain.

    Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

    It seems to be a bit oily, but not engine oil.

    I'm a bit worried that some fluids are no longer in the car that should be!!
    No warning lights have come on.

    Which way around was your car parked, and are you refering to the big stain that drains off to the grass in the middle?

    A random guess could be Petrol. Your fuel filter is sat just under the sill half way down the car on the pasenger side. It could be leaking, or , at £1.50 a litre somebody may have took the opertunity whislt its up on stands to pinch some by disconecting the fuel filter and letting it drain thorough?

    p.s. Whats it like with the remap? Ive got a 2.8t design siggy too and have thought about getting an EDS map.
