    Default Good driver!

    Worth watching that video. Good to see that the first car overtaken was a Mondeo Estate........

    Note the courtesy being shown to faster stuff like Porsches coming up behind - you can hear the indicator clicking away to show which side to pass.

    Bet you could have fried eggs on the front tyres afterwards!

    Arnold Clark need burning down TBH. THing I've found with the 2.2DTi, is once they start changing parts, you chase faults around the car.

    Favourite problems are Boost sensor, EGR Valve, Vacuum tubes, Boost hoses, Intercoolers can blow at their welds, Fuel pumps can be fragile.....

    Sold mine in the end, now enjoying the total reliability of a 1.9.....
