    Default Been breaking the law for 7 months

    Been meaning to get some pics on for ages, V6 cdti sri. Only got rear end pics at the moment, debadged but the excellent fins courtesy of spoons don't show up to well in the pictures.
    The final one is the 2 inches of water in the spare tyre well, that I found last month (was this extra also removed from later models?!!).
    Love the car to bits but not been without its problems in the last 7 months.

    The list to date.
    1. Boot locked shut - new mechanism fitted under warranty
    2. Windscreen wiper linkage failed - new one under warranty (off road for about 3-4 weeks)
    3. Water in boot (see above)
    4. Smelly Air con
    5. Centre rear seatbelt stuck - fixed at dealers under warranty.
    6. 3rd party drove into front wing
    7. 2no replacement brake light bulbs.
    8. Hit plastic container on motorway yesterday damaging front spoiler.
    9. Cruise control not working - fixed under warranty.
    10. Plastic tray below engine snaped in two - repaired myself on mates car ramp.

    Can anyone beat that lot? Admitedly some just down to misfortune or routine maintenance.

    Warranty has now expired, hope thats all problems now sorted. Despite all the above its the best car I've ever had and would still recomend to anyone.

    How did you manage to tip the car up, especially the V6, a fair weight to upend

    That sounds crazy, just put a bucket under the car and drilled a big hole in the bottom of my boot to drain out the water.

    Was debating turning the boot well into an aquariam with a clear perspex cover over the top and a nice selection of fish in there. Could be a mod that might catch on.

    Pimp my ride *lol* I had a problem with water in the boot of my 03, turned out to be a grommit Missing in the spare wheel bay , the amount of water which pours in when you open the boot in the rain it`s a wonder any of them are dry !!

    A picture of the bucket of water also, didn't actually drill a hole, used the plastic cup method. Also have pictures of water being poured down the drain if anyone wants 'em lol.

    Just remembered no 11 to the list of problems. Car running with doors locked and spare key wouldn't open it - managed to get in about 1/2 hr later forcing the spare key in the door lock so hard I thought it would snap.
