    Hi guys, been reading some threads over the last week or so great forum, very informative.

    Have had a 58 plate Sri 150 Auto for 3 days now, bought from Arnold Shark and very pleased with it (tho have noticed a few bits and bobs it needs to go back in for).

    This will be my daily driver, replacing a Mondeo 115 tdci that did 150K miles in 2.5yrs with just a new set of injectors and gear linkage cable in that time (both under Ford warranty). Reading some of the stories on here about the engine/gearbox I hope I`ve not made the wrong choice.

    pics of your daily, please, & no, you made the right choice mate. what you have to remember that even as busy as the site is, its still only a fration of Vec's on the road, so all's good. I have had mine for 4 years & only needed a service & springs.

    Thanks for the welcome Lads.

    Mitch, it`s -12C up here at the minute so no jet washers working anywhere. Will get some pics up later if I can find sole Pole`s with sponge`s working.

    Here`s a pic of my weekend car`s engine bay to keep you going tho.

    Untill tomorrow mate, been slowly putting it back to stock over the last 6mths ready to move it on. Engine and blower are the last to come off with a standard lump going back in it this week. Problem is now it`s back to standard I`m really struggling to find an alternative, may even have one last summer with it.
