    So leak from the near the thermostat housing. 1 drip every 10 seconds, he is going to recover it to Hoddesdon for me. Joy.

    I'd buy it, but I don't trust myself with 300 bhp, I'd either be banned or it would be in a ditch within 6 months

    Ok had a call to say the parts are now in to fix the coolant leak as there was a delay as Hyundai had none kicking about. Think it's a thermostat housing and a pipe. They were about to start the job when they notice.......

    A crack in the inlet manifold. Which makes a lot more sense with the rough running I was getting. So they have now ordered a new one of those plus all gaskets etc. 250 Plus whatever the above is gonna cost.

    But does make me question if I needed the 170 job they charged me for last week which seems to me was probably a symptom of the leaking manifold rather than dephaser valves being blocked. I shall be asking when I go in tomorrow.

    Not much you can do about it really. Exploratory work is normally carried out a the customers expense. You might get a good will gesture if you're lucky?

    I doubt it too. But worth an ask with probably a 500 bill looming on top of the 170 last week.

    So one week and 300 odd miles in and touch wood she is watertight and seemingly stutter/cut out free.

    Then get in to find the Mrs C4 got driven into and its MIL light is on!!! I'm cursed
