First of all I'd like to thank those feeding the forum with info and who answered my first posts, I have found it full of useful information, the How2s are great and the people seem very pleasant. I have just purchased a 54 plate 3.0v6 Signum Design and am loving it.
However I do have some more questions!
1) The car has 40k on the clock and it was 12k since the last oil change and I am thinking of replacing the oil and filter, my local dealer (Monorep Hayes) were quoting 33+vat for the filter and 42+vat per gallon of the recommended oil. Complete rip off I know, I have found the filter for £23 at autovaux.net and was thinking of using Mobil1 0w40. National Tyres will do the lot for £40, which is very cheap, but they use BP Visco 7000 0w40 which is ACEA B3/B4 rated, the service book states that this can be used but only on a 1 year cycle. The last service is due in 5 months and it will get another change then too. What do you reckon?
2) I know Ive only had it a while but the thought of tuning it is already entering my head, Ive seen how the tuning boxes compare to the remaps. But how do they affect reliability?
3) Final question! I used to own a small hatchback and am having a few problems when reversing into tight spaces as I cant judge the length too well and am **** scared of scratching it. Anyone had any success with aftermarket rear sensors, Local dealer will fit colour coded ones for approx £150.
Sorry to leach all this info out of you guys, hopefully as I go on I will be able to give something back!
