    Yes they did miss a decimal point. It should have been £27400!!! Even at £2740 though, it does sound very expensive. Is the car worth that sort of money being spent on it?

    ABout the right price for a new box, not a new rad with the mod on the cooler seals and a box flush that doesn't normally work.
