    Default It's Gone

    Well, the dirty deed is done....

    As longer term members will remember, we have the 'family' 150CDTi thats been (somewhat) less than reliable...

    In it's two years with us and 30K miles it's had the following..

    2 DPF's
    3 turbos
    2 exhaust manifolds and EGR systems
    2 high pressure fuel pumps..
    2 sets of injectors
    new inlet manifold ( to cure swirl valve)

    in all this time it's never been raced or had a tuning box fitted..never given more than 45MPG and then today it played it's final card..

    Had a phonecall from my dad, saying that he's now got the 'dreaded' spannerlight and the batterylight is lit...a quick trip on Vauxcom identified a shot alternator....well it's a bridge too far now on this and it's only got a short warranty left, so we went shopping....


    And came back with this....



    A 2007 2.8T elite Auto with 9,000 on the clock, full leater, Colour NAV and all the toys...and by friday it'll be lowered as he hates the ride height......

    Not a bad toy for a 63yr old........

    Must be a Dad thing, the Jags going to become a runabout, a Diesel SRi or Signum is being sought as his new 'smoker'!
